When did you start working in the travel industry?
I started working in travel when I finished my Travel & Tourism course at Colchester Institute in 2007.
I started as a Trainee for Thomas Cook before moving onto The Co-operative Travel (formerly Travelcare) for 5 years.
I've now been with Fred Olsen Travel for nearly 5 years and progressed in my career as Assistant Manager.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
Meeting new people every day, I enjoy a good conversation and helping to plan our customers next dream holiday.
Where would you like to visit next?
Dubai is next on my bucket list. I think it has everything I love about a holiday, the vibrant city for sightseeing and shopping, world-class hotels to stay in and the hot weather for relaxing at the beach or round the pool with a cocktail!
What is your dream holiday destination?
My dream holiday destination is somewhere like Bora Bora, the peace and tranquillity really appeals to me, however I'm not sure my bank balance would ever let me afford it.
Gemma's Top Travel Tips
1) Always remember where you left your passport.
2) Buy your currency in advance
3) Don't forget your suncream
I have too many !! but if I had to pick it would be Jamaica, other then the gorgeous crystal clear waters and the sunshine. I loved climbing Dunns River Falls, tobogganing down the Blue Mountains, trying out different water sports and there's the opportunity to swim with dolphins and visit Bob Marley's house.
