Travel enthusiast, hilarious dancer and expert multi-tasker. Katy comes with a wealth of marketing knowledge and expertise having worked in travel for almost 20 years.
She studied Marketing in Edinburgh before joining The Travel Corporation’s family of multi-award winning coach tour operators. Having spent time on multiple brands operating throughout Europe and with global sales offices, Katy worked her way from an initial student placement as part of her studies to sales and marketing manager. Customer service focused, she has a “people first” attitude, a value that is at the heart of Aardvark Safaris.
Her drive and passion for travel has also led to her being a founding member of the Edinburgh Chapter of the global ‘Travel Massive’ network which at its peak had over 600 members. This highly engaged community holds regular networking events for tourism professionals, travel media, influencers and start ups.
Since her university days Katy has spent most of her spare time travelling. She has bamboo rafted and dived in Thailand, worked on the ski fields in New Zealand, fished for piranhas and hunted for anacondas in South America.
She honeymooned in Mauritius and enjoyed a four night safari in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve in South Africa. One of her most memorable experiences was watching a day old elephant calf take its first steps.
When she is feeling slightly less adventurous, Katy enjoys baking and chilled weekends exploring her local bird reserve with her husband and six year old daughter Isla.
