Coming from a family of airline pilots, I was lucky enough to start traveling at a young age. It was in 1998 that my independent travel began exploring parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America. I spent a few years working abroad as a Divemaster and Dive Instructor, and also working for a UK-based dive tour operator.
I joined Scott Dunn in 2008 to specialize in ocean and island destinations and as the company dive specialist. For me, my favorite vacation has to be on a beach in a tropical location with scuba diving. I love the laid-back beach-style living! The islands that we feature around the world are all so different that there is a perfect island out there for everyone. My favorite islands are The Seychelles; a great destination for island-hopping offering romance, stunning scenery and the most incredible beaches.
Having recently returned from maternity leave, now with a little one in tow, I have all the joys of family travel to experience! I hope this will help me to offer invaluable tips and advice to our family guests.

Favourite places I've been
One of the best views has to be from the Spa at the Four Seasons, Seychelles. It’s definitely worth having a drink here and watching the sun go down over the Indian Ocean.
Did you know - Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles, is one of the smallest capitals in the world.
If you’re a scuba diver, don’t forget to take your dive certification card with you.
Head to the Rum Shed at Shanti Maurice in Mauritius - a rustic bar where you can try their selection of 180 local and international rums.
My hot picks
Ultimate barefoot luxury! I love the relaxed, friendly island-style. The staff are so welcoming, you instantly feel at home. The beautifully appointed rooms benefit from ocean views and a sea breeze. It's a great place for exploring, fishing and diving.
You can’t beat the stunning view of Mount Otemanu from your overwater bungalow. This is a truly beautiful hotel in one of the most picturesque locations in the world with legendary Four Seasons service. Take a jet ski tour and explore the lagoon.
I loved my stay at Shanti Maurice - a unique property set on a beautiful beach on the more wild south coast of Mauritius. It offers an authentic Mauritian vacation experience with some fantastic dining concepts.
Rustic, barefoot luxury at it's best. Such a welcoming and friendly island and no need to wear shoes!
