Biography

Heather’s passion for travel began while she was studying Photography. During her study she embarked on extended trips across Europe and Indonesia. Initially intent on travel photography, she spent a 12 months on a world journey before realising that a career in travel, sending people on trips of a lifetime, was the way forward.

For over five years Heather has worked as an Americas specialist, frequently travelling over the Atlantic (camera in hand). Hiking the Peruvian Inca Trail and Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, diving the beautiful waters of Sipadan and the Gili Islands and taking a Heli-Hiking trip on Mount McKinley in Alaska are just a few of the many highlights of Heather’s travels.
