Travel & Tour Coordinator
I was born and raised in Bermuda. With tourism being one of the main industries on the island, I was attracted to the airline industry.
My experience began working with both Pan American Airlines and Air Canada in their reservation offices. After moving to Canada I opened a travel agency in Edmonton, that I owned and operated for nine years.
Working with Muskoka Travel Service, I am able to incorporate my experience with airlines, tour companies and cruise lines.
I was told by a gentleman, Mr. Fleming, at my first interview with Pan American, that if I loved people and loved travel, I would never be happy doing anything else…he was indeed right, I have found my passion.
A few years ago, I was on a bus tour and throughout the entire trip I kept saying to myself, “One day, I would love to be a tour guide and help people with their travel plans”. And here I am!
Born and raised in Muskoka, I’ve worked in our community’s Tourism Industry for many years, including as a Tourism Consultant with a Chamber of Commerce, at various resorts and in retail tourism. In addition, I’m a qualified teacher, and enjoy incorporating that aspect into all of my tours.
I also enjoy being a traveller myself and have many adventures under my belt including backpacking across Western Canada, and many trips throughout the United States, Dominican Republic, Paris, and Italy.
Outside Sales Representative
I was born in the Owen Sound area but spent most of my school and working years in Toronto. I was in Real Estate for 7 years, a Dental Nurse for 18 years, then my husband and I owned and operated a Resort on Rice Lake for 12 years.
In my retirement, I am a line dancing Instructor at the Ramara Centre in Atherley.
I was employed by Fareway Tours for 3 years, arranging and Managing Tours, also Cardela Travel for 8 years prior to joining Muskoka Travel Service. I enjoy what I do very much, love working with people to make them happy and see them smile.
