After completing year 12 I decided to move on to secretarial school, where during placement at American Express Travel I experienced my first taste of working in travel. I knew that I had sampled a buzzing and exciting industry and needed to find out more. Luckily as my placement came to an end I was offered a permanent role as a receptionist and retail travel agent. In my position I practised my newly learnt secretarial skills while developing my passion for travel planning.
After four years of hard work and long hours I left American Express to refocus on my health until a new opportunity arose. Eager to travel more and develop my skills I joined Qantas Business Travel and worked as a corporate consultant. I strived to create strong and lasting relationships with our business partners and continually improved my service to cater for their needs.
After many years I left my job at Qantas and with my husband and two kids, moved to Echuca where I took my first job outside of travel. Once we had all settled into our new lives in our peaceful new home town a job was advertised at Echuca Travel Centre. Using my 18 years of industry experience I secured the job and returned to the industry I love so much. Working at Echuca Travel Centre I get to do the work that I love doing but the clients I work with are better than I've ever had before.
