Meet the Team
Specialist Brand Consultant & Sales Team Lead (UK)
‘Before joining Authentic Adventures, I was working in a sales focused role for one of the UK’s leading Telecom’s companies. My love of travel and history drew me to Authentic Adventures and to have the both combined means I have not looked back since. I love to travel personally and have visited many corners of the world, but I also try to participate in as many of our tours as possible, my last being a tour to Sicily. I currently manage the UK office’s Sales Team whilst also looking after Specialist Journeys’ specialised brands.

I studied Nursing at college but somehow ended up working the majority of my career as a Civil Servant in a variety of customer focused roles. I joined the company in 2015 and as well as being part of the Sales team and I am a well-travelled Tour Manager for our sister company Andante Travels with trips to Pompeii, Split, Crete, France & Malta under my belt. I also tour manage many of our Study Days.
Customer Care Executive
I joined Authentic Adventures in May 2018 and came from a varied background of industries, including spending some time in an administration department at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stonehenge. I am very interested in travel and have travelled personally to Rome & Pompeii.
I joined Authentic Adventures in 2016. I am a semi-professional artist with a love for art and travel, specifically travel to Japan and I am currently learning to read and write Japanese. As a result of my love for travel, I have worked in the travel industry for the majority of my working career. I travel regularly personally & have been lucky enough to visit some breath-taking places including Japan and the Maldives. I travelled on my first tour with our sister company Andante to Pompeii in 2017 & since had the opportunity to travel on our incredible Japan tour, which fuelled my interest in the country’s history even further.
With many years in high end sales and customer service I joined the team in 2018. With a background in technology and computing I have chosen to change direction and widen my skills within the travel industry. As a keen traveller to many European destinations, I can often be found on the walkways of Venice and Northern Italy or the southern coast of Spain enjoying the sights of the Alhambra.
