The Vancouver Team

Destination Specialist, Vancouver
I first became acquainted with the South Pacific during a 4-month backpacking trip many years ago. I later spent six years living in New Zealand and have now made more than two dozen trips to Australia, New Zealand as well as French Polynesia, Fiji and the Cook Islands. This corner of the world holds special interest for me due to the fabulous variety of landscapes, the uncrowded and unspoiled rural areas, the vibrant cities, the amazing wildlife, and the coastal zones complete with reefs, islands, beaches and dramatic shorelines! Most recently, I've been back to the South Island of NZ.

Where I’ve visited: New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Tahiti, Cook Islands, Palau, Taiwan, Singapore, South Africa, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Costa Rica

What I love most about traveling the world is the moments that bring you true joy. Where life makes you stop for a moment - soaking in that fresh ocean air, taking a deep breath – feeling the sand beneath your feet, watching the waves as they swiftly erase your footprints. During my month-long journey along the East Coast of Australia I had the opportunity to immerse myself in nature, explored caves, held a koala bear, got up close with the kangaroos and watched the waves from the look out at the Byron Bay Lighthouse. The soaring coastlines, pristine sandy beaches and the seamless fusion of nature meeting the bustling city life in Sydney and Melbourne. How the coast perfectly meets the futuristic skyscrapers in the Gold Coast - truly a place like no other. My background in the culinary world has led me to always search and discover some of the most amazing, innovative cuisines and culinary masterpieces. Being a passionate food enthusiast, I find myself eager to try new dishes and immersing myself in diverse cultures. My adventures have also taken me to places like Singapore and Japan, where I experienced the exhilarating Formula 1 Night Race, admiring the breathtaking views of the Marina Bay, and the harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.

Where I’ve visited: Australia, Singapore, Japan, India, Hong Kong

Destination Specialist, Vancouver
Within the travel industry I’ve experience in both Canada and New Zealand as a travel consultant. Having lived in New Zealand for three years, I know it is a remarkable treasure. The culture, hospitality, diverse landscapes, places to explore, experiences and ease of getting around make it an incredible destination. Having a variety of experiences through travel and volunteering I’ve also had the privilege to see a lot of South East Asia and dip into Africa. I am thrilled to be on the Downunder Travel team to specialize in my favourite regions. It is an absolute pleasure to assist others plan adventures and fall in love with this extraordinary part of the world.
