A high achiever by nature, I have experience running a variety of projects in the travel and non-profit industries for a diverse audience (including corporate businesses, leisure travelers, high-school/university students, and volunteers). I have planned and operated about 150 group tours and programs for up to 150 people, in close collaboration with clients, sales representatives, suppliers and other stakeholders.

The successful completion of all the projects I have run required a keen eye for detail as well as a strong administrative and organizational skills. These include email management and phone calls, program scheduling, calendar management, data entry/updating, document filing/updating, invoicing, and coordination with various stakeholders.

Fascinated in human interactions and relationships, I have developed strong partnerships through my various collaborations and exceeded my clients expectations at numerous occasions. Today, I’m looking to apply my experience and skills to help professionals work more efficiently whilst living a flexible lifestyle.
