About me

I'm passionate about using tourism as a tool for local economic development and the transformational power of youth travel. At GROUND our customised programs combine leadership and resilience training and cross-cultural connections with sustainable community development to create positive experiences for young global citizens and the communities we work with.

After managing the development and operations of several mid-sized city tour operators in central and eastern Europe, I'm thrilled to be using both my professional experience and my academic knowledge in a company that's committed to responsible tourism practices.

I've worked in the tourism industry for 10+ years. My experience lies in developing and managing a variety of tourism SMEs.
