My first international trip with my family was to Mexico at an early age and it made a big impression on me. I latched on to the idea that the world could be my playground to explore and ever since then I've had a passion for travel and learning about different cultures.
After graduating from the University of Memphis with a BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration), I began my career in the travel industry and started working on cruise ships. This allowed me to travel to over 20 different countries and undertake extensive solo trips around Southeast Asia and Australasia.
New Zealand, with its diverse landscapes and Polynesian culture, has always been a highlight however. It's no surprise it's so popular with its natural drama, prospect of adventure, rich Maori culture and mellow attitude.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you plan your dream trip to either Australia or New Zealand.
I'll never forget when…
Swimming with wild dolphins in Kaikoura was humbling, educational, thrilling and fun all at the same time and a highlight of my most recent trip to New Zealand. Being able to see dusky dolphins in their natural habitat and join them in the water was exhilarating as they were very playful and did back flips around us. Even the boat ride was rewarding with dramatic views of Kaikoura's mountains, albatrosses in the water and a little blue penguin that poked its head out at us. The guides were great too and taught me a lot about wildlife in the area.
