“From the moment I set foot in Latin America, I fell in love with the colours, flavours, rhythms and the fascinating heritage. 

From sampling ceviche and Pisco Sour in Lima, trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, snorkelling along the Caribbean coast of Mexico and dancing the tango in Buenos Aires, I’ve really taken every opportunity to indulge in to all the amazing things Latin America offers. 

Having roots in Chile, this place has always held a very special place in my heart and I take every opportunity I get to visit there. 

So far I have visited Chile, Argentina, Peru and Mexico and I can’t wait to go back to explore more. What fascinates me most are the old civilisations, the ruins, the colours, the food and liveliness of the local markets and the friendliness of the locals.

What I love the most about working in the travel industry is sharing the excitement of something new and different with customers who are yet to experience it. There’s nothing I find more rewarding than getting people excited about something that I know will change their lives forever.

My professional background spans from extensive cruise experience (I’ve been on 15 cruises to date!) to six years as a consultant in several agencies in Queensland, specialising in cruises, as well as several years as a personal TravelManager running my own business in Bathurst.”
