Meet the Greece Travel Secrets Team


Founder & Editor

I’m a Gen-X writer, blogger, designer, wife and mother of 3 from Brisbane, Australia.

I spent over 30 years working in the corporate world in leadership and Project Management positions across Recruitment, HR, Banking and Construction. I’m a qualified Interior Designer, Lean Specialist and Agile coach which means I specialise in solving problems – creatively!

Most importantly I’m an avid traveller and Grecophile, and in fact I’m married to a Greek. John and I visit Greece each year, sometimes twice, and explore as much of the country as we can, as well as returning to our favourite spots.

I love to cook ( and eat) Greek food and am a huge advocate of the wine, the way of life and the ‘Filotimo’, which loosely translates to love of honour ( and other virtues).

You can also find me on the Podcast, Instagram, at the Facebook Page and on Tiktok
