Personal

After first careers in Banking and FMCG, I've found my "professional home" in tourism. I learnt it's crucial for me to identify with the product I deal with. Working with the open-minded international people in our industry is a blessing for me. I'm passionate about my projects and know I am privileged to be able to say "I love my job". When not working, I love... right - traveling, often with my teen daughter, my best adventure travel partner in crime.
