Originally from Tauranga, I made the move to Auckland to study tourism before entering straight into the inbound sector with Thomas Cook. From there I also worked at both Pan Pacific Travel and Tourism Holdings. As a Destination Specialist throughout those years, I have travelled extensively throughout New Zealand (and a few trips overseas) with my favourite areas being Queenstown and the Nelson/Marlborough region.
After three healthy children and some years at home, I have now joined the Southern World team doing accounts payable and database. Along with my husband Tim Reid, we were presented with the opportunity to buy into Southern World around 5 years ago, so we both are very involved in a side of the industry we both have a big passion for.
