Global Partnership Director
I was born and raised in Toronto and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at McMaster University. I started traveling at a young age, and decided to turn my passion for travel into a full-time career. With more than 20 years of experience in supplier management and retail marketing in leisure travel, I have held numerous positions in product development, national account management, and sales and market distribution. I joined the Quark Expeditions team in 2016.
Do you have any awards, published research, or committee memberships?
I am a former elected member of the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies’ Ontario Regional Council and The Cruise Council of Canada. Additionally, I’m a Cruise Lines International Association accredited cruise counselor.
If you haven't visited the polar regions, what are you most looking forward to experiencing in the polar regions?
I can’t wait to see my first iceberg and to hear and see a penguin colony.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from traveling?
Be open minded and open hearted in order to get the most of the experience. And don’t be afraid to try new things!
