If you could share one tip with a new employee, what would it be?
Come into work with an open mind, challenge yourself outside your comfort zone and most importantly, be yourself.
Global encourage success and progression, allowing me to indulge in new opportunities, to learn and experience the industry. I also love to enjoy a balloon flight every now and again!
Describe yourself in three words
Friendly, positive & passionate.
I can't say that I've had an awful job. With every job comes new experiences and skills which I can take onto my next role.
If you weren't doing this job, what would you be?
A job specialising in Marketing or Social Media.
How many times have you been ballooning?
In which locations have you flown over?
Melbourne & Yarra Valley
If you could choose one place in the world to fly over in a hot air balloon where would it be?
Venice, Italy - this romantically beautiful city with its many canals and landmarks would be a spectacular site to see from a birds-eye view!
I graduated from Victoria University with a Bachelor of Business (Marketing & Event Management) and delved into the events industry before realising that Marketing was my passion.
The tourism industry is incredible - it doesn't matter what business within the industry you work for, everyone is willing to collaboratively work together and support one another. I feel privileged to be a part of a family owned business, especially one where I feel like they are my second family.
