I was born in London and had always wanted to work in the tourism industry from a young age. I finally decided to make it happen by moving to the Algarve in Portugal in 2015, where i started working in the travel industry. My first experience in tourism was when i joined the Jet2holidays team in the Algarve - I was a Hotel & Airport rep, and my duties included welcoming holidaymakers from their flights at the airport to placing them on transfers to their hotels. I would then visit customers at their hotels to answer any questions they may have and help them have a memorable holiday. In 2018 I joined James Villas as a Villa Manager: I was managing over 30 villas, checking their quality and maintenance, assisting owners and agents to ensure the utmost standards of service were received by all guests. Last year, in 2022, I joined CV Villas as the Destination Expert for Portugal and have thoroughly enjoyed the role so far. I am looking forward to continuing this season, giving my utmost to ensuring all clients have a fantastic holiday here in Portugal!
