"I have worked in travel my whole career since school from a trainee at American Express Travel before moving on for many wonderful years at Thomas Cook. After having a family I worked in small independent agencies before entering into teaching travel and tourism at Eastleigh College where I have been for 15 years. I love maps/geography/talking about travel and of course travelling. I enjoy helping students grow and follow their dreams and develop into future employees in the travel sector."
