I started in the travel industry in August 1998 and have 21 years experience as a travel consultant. I am a senior consultant who specializes in FIT travel, group travel, VIP clients, luxury safaris and self-drive tours. I excel in handling complex itineraries in a professional and dedicated manner. I am passionate about travelling; has travelled extensively throughout South Africa, and visited Botswana, the Victoria Falls, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique and Madagascar. I live on a farm outside Clanwilliam in the Western Cape with my husband, two children and a variety of animals.

How did you get involved in travel?

"Some would say, by chance. I choose to believe Travel has chosen me."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"There are too many to list, but if I have to choose a unique experience, it would be the interaction with elephants in Zambia - it left me in awe of the gentleness of those huge animals."
