Senior Digital Media & Marketing Executive

I am the senior digital media and marketing executive at Thorne Travel. I started with the team 5 years ago as a digital marketing apprentice, having enrolled with QA to work for 2 years at Thorne Travel to learn on the job while learning at a series of courses at the QA offices in Glasgow. After completing this 2-year apprenticeship I then continued at Thorne Travel and was enrolled in a course at Glasgow Caledonian University to study IT and Business Management, and a hoping to get my honors degree in 2021.

As a lover of travel, I enjoy helping customers go from having an idea of a destination to then travelling to the destination and sharing with us their stories and best media from the adventure. My favorite thing about the travel industry is that there is always more to learn about every destination, even after a customer has returned from a destination it is always great to hear their best information and tips of where to go and what to see when there!

Favourite Places

My top destination I have explored so far would be a tough choice between Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi. Both are breathtaking destination in their own way, and I would love to go back and visit them to do the things I feel like I missed.

There is never enough time to explore all that they have to offer!

Travel Tips

I always like to plan everything before I go to any destination. This way I feel like I can manage to cram as much into the short time period I am there. It is always better to pre book restaurants and attraction in advance this way your sure to miss out on long queues!

A top tip I always recommend that some people don’t think of, rather than taking 3 or 4 travel adapters, take one travel adaptor and a UK extension cable.
