Airfares are her passion, and watching her work sourcing the best airfares and routes is awe inspiring!

Taking care two young sons and a puppy and a busy work life, she balances her home and work life with gusto.
Skiing is her go-to active holiday pastime skiing many resorts in the French and Austrian Alps , Canada, USA and NZ already marked off the list with Italy and Japan on her hit list next.
