I was born and grew up in Norfolk, England. My mother is English and my father Scottish, so I have a little Celtic blood! After studying French, German and Spanish (Italian came later!), I left the UK and set off to discover the world. Due to my language skills and experience in customer service and tourism, I managed to find work in many different countries in various capacities, before finally landing in Austria in 2003.
I immediately fell in love – with Austria that is! The sheer beauty of the landscape, the unspoilt countryside, the contrast of the lakes and mountains, intriguing cities – Austria, as the heart of Europe, has it all. I couldn’t imagine leaving so I decided to make it my home. And now I have far too many Austrian dresses to ever leave here again!
I have always worked in tourism in one way or another and have always enjoyed showing friends and family around the areas where I have previously lived. Now, as a licensed Austria Guide, I would love to show you around the area I have decided to call home. I always think that guests on my tour could be my Mum or Dad, brother, sister or best friend, so I always want them to see the best parts!
I would love to show you some of those places, both on and off the beaten track, and tell you some of the history and secrets of Salzburg.
I also love to sing so I often burst into song whilst on tour! Perhaps a little Mozart or possibly the Sound of Music! I look forward to meeting you here in Salzburg, and to show you too my favourite places for the famous Austrian tradition of coffee and cake!
