Travel designer Katie discovered her passion for discovery when she moved from her home town of Wellington, New Zealand, to Hong Kong to complete her final year of high school. After completing her studies, she set off to explore Thailand, Europe and the UK, and then moved to Sydney, Australia, for three years. It was while backpacking around western Europe that she decided to pursue a career in travel.
Katie returned to New Zealand and spent four years working at a travel company before transferring to Hong Kong – a move that also gave her the opportunity to discover more of Asia. Visits to Vietnam, where she wandered through the old quarter of Hanoi and kayaked around Halong Bay satiated her appetite for new experiences.
Today Katie is thrilled to be able to do a job that involves sharing her adventures and building on her travel knowledge. She revels in planning luxurious and extraordinary trips for her clients that they will remember forever.
