With parents in the travel industry, Vanessa was lucky enough to visit many different countries as a child and caught the travel bug at an early age. After university, she enjoyed voluntary work in Belize and India and also got her PADI Divemaster qualification in Thailand.
Her passion for scuba diving and wildlife bound her to Southeast Asia, where she continued to travel, stopping to practice her new profession wherever possible. After this she returned to England and joined Audley in order to share her experiences with others and help them get as much out of their travels as she did. She began her career as a Southeast Asia specialist, creating tailor-made itineraries to all her most liked places. She then made the move to the Concierge team, where she has broadened her knowledge of destinations from all over the world and has enjoyed more travel as a result.
In keeping with her exploring nature, Vanessa has recently transferred from Audley's office in rural Oxfordshire to the new office in Boston, USA.

I'll never forget when…
I was scuba diving in the Philippines and studying some of the tiny critters hidden in the coral, when I turned around and saw an enormous whale shark right behind me. It was so majestic as cruised by silently and disappeared back into the blue. I was completely in awe.
