Joined Dana in 2017 as Senior Consultant. I grew up in the States, the Free States. "I worked in the UK from 2002 till 2004 and returned back to SA and started working in the Travel Industry in March 2004. I fell in love with the Travel Industry and it is a passion more than a job. I have visited the UK, France, Mozambique, Bali, Thailand, Victoria Falls, Mauritius and Italy. International destination I will travel to again - Italy. There are no words to describe the beauty of the small villages in Italy, the Presence at the Vatican the Majestic Colosseum and all its glory, the smell of leather in the streets of Florence and the fashion of Milan. My heart will always remain local, for the Bush and Beach, Kruger and Cape Town - Local is after all Lekker!"
