Tell us about yourself!
I was born and raised in Montreal (suburbs). My favorite hobbies include reading, travelling and cooking. I studied tourism in college.
Growing up I went to a private Greek school; therefore, I am also fluent in Greek besides English and French.
What made you apply to Prometour?
Prometour offered me an internship after college and I was then hired as a group coordinator.
What are the top destinations you’ve visited and which was your favourite?
I have travelled to France, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Greece, Cyprus, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Turcs and Caicos as well as New England in the USA.
I cannot pick a favorite destination! Each country has its own unique charm and beauty!
What was your best travel experience?
My favorite travel memories as a kid were spending the summers in Greece with my grandparents and cousins.
A few years ago, we travelled to Costa Rica with the office and that was a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit places and see things I had always dreamt of. It was one of my favorite trips!
What was the craziest thing that has ever happened to you while traveling?
Almost getting stranded in the middle of Cuba without any gas or way to get back to the resort.
Everything worked out in the end, but it was a stressful situation to be in as I was only 21 at the time without much travel experience.
What destinations are on your bucket list and why?
I have too many to list…I can go on and on! Ireland and Scotland are next on the list, with Peru right after!
What is the most satisfying part of your job?
Seeing pictures and reading the great feedback we get from our student travelers.
Which Prometour Tour would you travel on?
All of them!
