Account Manager

What I have done…
In the summer of 2012 I graduated from the University of Surrey with a BSc in Tourism Management. I loved the course as it was full of exciting modules and I even got to go to Kenya in my second year! It really opened my eyes to the outside world, and made me even more determined to pursue a career in tourism. With the majority of my experience coming from the hospitality industry, I knew it was time to set myself a new challenge- plus I wanted to utilise my degree.

What I do now…
I started at Hills Balfour as a PR intern straight after finishing university. I worked on an array of clients and attend press launches which really helped me to gain exposure within the industry. Fortunately for me as my internship finished, I was taken on as a Sales & Marketing Account Executive. I have now progressed to the managerial positions and I absolutely love my role working on a variety of clients that include tourist boards across the globe.

What I do for fun…
When I am out of the office, I love to go out with friends. I love tapas bars and exploring the hidden gems of London. Additionally I love to learn new languages- I can speak (a little) German, Spanish, French, Italian and even some Hungarian!

What I bring to Hills Balfour…
I have a genuine passion for the travel industry and aim to embrace my knowledge to meet and exceed my role. I enjoy networking and share my enthusiasm with colleagues alike. I also love photography and can sometimes be seen at client events with a camera in hand putting my new found skills to the test!
