Lovely to meet you

I am so excited to be back working and a part of the House of Travel family after some time away from the industry whilst my children were young. 

Being a friendly and bubbly person I appreciate spending time with my clients building their dream holidays, listening and paying attention to their needs to create special memories. 

I feel so lucky to be a part of this wonderful travel industry and find that my passion to help others shows when working in my happy place.

I have travelled through Europe, Vietnam and Cambodia as well as parts of Eastern Canada.  I have cruised Alaska which I absolutely loved and have had many trips to different parts of Australia, Asia and South Africa. 

My favourite country would have to be Cambodia, where I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the locals, travelling this beautiful country, and experiencing the local food. Waking up at 5am to have a cup of tea whilst watching the sun rising over Angkor Wat as the local monks walked past.  It was such a magical moment and one that will be engraved in my mind forever. 

I can’t wait to meet with you to discuss your individual travel enquiries.

What my customers have to say

  • Fantastic information, easy to deal with, very helpful. Debra was great over the phone, and made an effort to meet me in person outside of the office.
  • Debra was awesome to deal with very patient and listened to our request. We left as a friend I believe. I gave her a hug because I was so grateful. We also went to house of travel as it has been owned by a local man for over 30 years and he deserves to be supported as he has managed to survive tough times because of his experience and staff.
  • Debra was Super efficient. Nothing was a hassle. As soon as I told her what we were wanting she had it sorted in no time at all.
