I joined the Regent team in March 2022, having spent my whole life working in travel sales. I look forward to sharing my wealth of experience with other like-minded travellers – along with my insatiable passion for adventure!

My favourite places to explore are the Polar regions. I’ve visited a number of times, getting to know these staggering landscapes during expedition cruises. I loved kayaking the icy waters and was lucky enough to spot a family of orcas on my journey.

A true travel highlight, though, has to be my visit to Svalbard. We spotted 18 polar bears in just one trip! I love creating tailor-made adventures for my clients, particularly for the Arctic and Galapagos Islands, though I have also spent time as an Africa Specialist, too. I’ve wild-camped in Botswana and tracked gorillas in Uganda, which was incredible.

In Europe, I loved cycling through the Alpine terrains of Carinthia in Austria. Outside of work, you can find me speeding down the ski slopes in Austria or taking long bike rides through the Cheshire countryside, which is where I call home.

Since joining Regent Holidays, I have travelled to the Azores which I absolutely rate for a great active holiday. The walking opportunities here are diverse, ranging from lush green valleys to dramatic coastal cliffs. The islands boast well-maintained trails that showcase the unique beauty of each, so be sure to pack your hiking boots and walking poles! I also enjoyed kayaking on Lake Furnas surrounded by its geothermal landscape.

With a few of my colleagues, I had the opportunity to visit Lapland for a few days this November. We immersed ourselves in some incredible wintry experiences and had the unique pleasure of meeting the man in red himself! Chat to me about staying in Apukka Glass Igloos Resort

I've had the pleasure of not just one but two trips to Iceland with my fellow teammates. We enjoyed a weekend filled with fun and laughter in Reykjavik, taking a dip not only in the Blue Lagoon but enjoying ocean vistas at the Sky Lagoon too. Thanks to our incredible Superjeeps partners we explored the Golden Circle, spotted the Northern Lights, and dashed across a glacier on snowmobiles. 

On my most recent trip, we drove around the ring road and thankfully the winter weather was kind to us. We saw a lot of hotels, bathed in a lot of geo-thermal lagoons and ate at a lot of petrol stations!
