What does your business do? Mobile service providing all the services of a travel agent.

What area do you serve? Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia.

Did you found the business? No. I am a franchisee

Up to 5 dot points about your business journey:

  • I worked as a public servant for 18 years in various areas of State Government in the South East and Fleurieu Peninsula, after completing a contract to educate the Fleurieu on how to effectively and safely use the Internet I accepted a separation package and began in an industry I have always had a passion for.
  • I began with Flight Centre in 2006 at Colonnades, progressed to Manager in Victor Harbor then moved to Phil Hoffmann Travel for 7 years as a consultant then Assistant Manager until changing to part-time.
  • To be more available to assist my husband in his window cleaning business I took the plunge in September 2017 to go out as a mobile travel agent with Kaleidoscopic Travel.

Name two things you’ve learned from your business journey:

  • You need to do something you are passionate about.
  • Taking a chance by jumping out of your comfort zone could be the best thing you ever do

Why did you join the Women in Business Network? To meet like-minded people, expand my contacts locally and gain new friendships.
