A dream to become a flight attendant at a very early age ensured that Tina was always destined to be in the travel industry.
After deciding that aero-planes may be a little constricting to spend most of her time in one, she settled on the next best thing – assisting others with their journeys, for which she’s now been involved in different aspects of the travel industry for over 15 years. With experience at some of Australia’s leading travel companies in organising luxury travel incorporating Business and First Class airfares as well as adventure touring, she’s had the pleasure of researching some of the best destinations in the world.
Over this time she’s had the opportunity to go to some of the most amazing places in the world – Alaska , Mexico, Nepal and South Africa to name the highlights.
Joining Travelling Fit in October 2008, she was able to combine her passion for travel and her love of the great outdoors and she’s enjoying assisting runners in their pursuits of completing Marathons all around the world.
Whilst a keen soccer player, Tina had done no competitive running until joining Travelling Fit, but after doing some serious training she completed her first Marathon at the ING New York City Marathon in 2010.
Although she swore she’d retired after that event, she’s has also run the 2011 Virgin London Marathon, 2011 Melbourne Marathon, returned to New York in 2013 (and beat her previous time by one minute) and the 2013 Big Five Marathon in South Africa.
Completing the 100km Trailwalker event in August of 2013 ticked another box for her, although she maintains that was a crazy thing to do.
Taking a short break from running when she had her beautiful daughter in 2014, she’s now back into running full swing and loves to run in the bush – taking on many trail races the last few years.
And the next challenge…. Ultra Trail Australia 50KM in May 2018!
