Born in Paris and bred by the beautiful French Atlantic coastline, I am the frenchie of the team.
Tourism has always been a part of my working life. I’ve first learnt the ropes in hospitality, working in reception jobs in Club Med-like resorts or waitressing my way around the world. From beaches to ski resorts, I loved the lifestyle and it allowed me to do a fair bit of travelling around Europe, North America, Asia and the South Pacific.
This is how I took my first step in Aotearoa and after travelling from the Far North to the bottom South, East to West and back North again, I decided this was a pretty amazing place!
Opportunity was given to me to work for a French Inbound, here in New Zealand, and I that’s how I joined the Travel Industry some 6 years ago, before teaming up with Southern World more recently.
I am proud to promote and sell New Zealand and share my passion for my adoptive land. And it’s no hard job when the country itself has so many out of this world scenery !
From Glaciers to stunning beaches, Fjords to crisp Lakes, Rainforest to Volcanoes, you can experience it all in a ‘pocket size’ country and to complete the postcard, Kiwis are the most humble, grounded people who will welcome you with their legendary hospitality !
Special moments, I had many in New Zealand, whether kayaking along a pod of dolphins in Coromandel, watching the first light of a new day in the remote East Cape, snowboarding on top of volcanoes or tramping the mighty South Island, I totally fell for the Kiwi lifestyle. In fact, Vegemite is probably the only thing I quite don’t get my head around… But hey, you can’t have it all !
