Working in the travel industry for 35 years, I have focused on cruise for the past 15 years.

I am consistently listed in the Top 20 Cruise Consultants in Australia, according to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), based on my knowledge and training.

Cruising is not just my career, it's my passion. I've sailed on more than 40 cruises (ocean, river and expedition), so you can be assured that my professional expertise is backed up by personal experience.

In 2017 I established my dedicated agency, Exclusively Cruising, and recently completed the Diploma in Travel & Tourism and Leadership & Management.

Personalised service is my specialty – and it’s essential for choosing a cruise. By getting to know you, I can find the right cruise for you. So, let’s get started on your dream holiday today.
