‘I moved to the beautiful Whitsundays in 1998, I just love it here. During my study at the University of Queensland where I completed my Bachelor of Business, majoring in Tourism Management, the Whitsundays was a subject of some of my studies, leading me to move to the area in 1998.
Since, I have worked with in various areas of the tourism industry, including for Fantasea Cruises and Hamilton Island. During this time I wrote many tourism awards on behalf of Fantasea, which won a number of Queensland Tourism Awards and two Australian Tourism Awards. At Hamilton, I had the privilege of participating in the Best Job in the World Campaign, an amazing experience which opened my eyes to the extreme reach of the internet – local is now global. During this time I completed my Masters of Business Administration at Deakin University in 2011.
