Course Director of Travel, Tourism & Aviation

I have enjoyed working with a number of different students and seeing them achieve is the ultimate satisfaction.

What do you enjoy about working at BCoT?

I love sharing my experience with students and seeing their excitement for the industry. I really enjoy being in the classroom and working with all our young adults, the best part is seeing them achieve and obtaining their dream job once they have finished with us. It doesn’t get better than that. What was your previous industry experience?

What experience did you have before coming to BCoT?

I completed a BTEC level 3 in travel & tourism at college, then went on to be a holiday representative for First Choice for two years in the Canary Islands. I then came home and transferred to become a Travel Agent, also with First Choice. After finding a love for Cruise, I became a Cruise Specialist with Planet Cruise, where I created tailor made cruise packages to all over the world. I finished in industry working as a Travel Sales Manager, selling premium food & drink into airlines, airport lounges, ferries & cruises within the UK and Europe.
