Kate, office administrator
Sculpture by the Sea, Bronte 2016

Kate was newly ‘Encountered’ in 2016, but with a background in public relations, office admin and a multi-tasking, trouble-shooter, mother of two teenage girls she is a valuable addition to our Travel Team.

Of course, travel is a passion. She possesses a Travel Certificate III and has immersed herself in culturally different cities by living and working in London and Hong Kong. 

While yoga and wellness retreats especially in North Bali and Thailand are always top of the list, Kate has been ‘off the sunlounge’ and has trekked the 4-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Peru and put in many kilometres by skiing at elevent different resorts in USA, four resorts in Japan and all the NZ resorts. 

If you ask her where her favourite country has been so far, she’ll say Australia with a bucket list must do of Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia.  The natural and diverse beauty of her home country never ceases to amaze Kate and that we can be in the tropics, desert and snow all in one week!

Favourite Country: Australia - home and so diverse!
Favourite City: Paris!
Favourite Encounter holiday: Can't decide between Nepal trek, Moscow / Prague or Bali Resort!!
