I was always keen to turn my passion for travel into a career, so I moved from retail management to cabin crew for a leading airline. I worked on both long and short-haul flights, seeing incredible places all over the world and spending a lot of time in South Africa, North America and Southeast Asia.
It was during my travels that one country stood out from all the rest. Canada soon became not only a destination I visited through work, but also one that I took every opportunity to explore during my leisure time. My highlights have been admiring the turquoise, glacier-fed lakes in the Canadian Rockies, spotting grizzly bears in the Great Bear Rainforest and sailing around the Alaskan Panhandle on an expedition cruise.
I joined the team at Audley in order to share my knowledge and help people experience my favourite country.
I'll never forget when…
I was so lucky to stay at Great Bear Lodge in the Great Bear Rainforest on the Pacific Coast of British Columbia. We went bear spotting in little boats along the estuary and couldn't believe it when a young grizzly bear climbed down into the water and swam alongside our boat. To be that close to such a majestic animal in its natural environment was an incredible moment.
