Alison cherishes her native North-East of England, her family, friends and football. She earned a Master’s degree in acting from ALRA Drama School and returned to her homeland to open a children’s theatre school. Alison has always had an appetite for travel and relishes any opportunity to see the world and experience all it has to offer, especially its food!
During her teenage years, she engaged in many school foreign exchange programmes and embraced the cultures of China, Switzerland, Germany and Turkey by living with host families. Growing up, Alison enjoyed many family holidays from Cyprus to Spain, Greece to Florida. She distinctly remembers a surprise trip to Lapland aged twelve and marvelling at the Northern Lights for the first time.
One of Alison’s favourite destinations is Mauritius. The delicious curries, stunning scenery and the friendly locals were topped off with an unforgettable marriage proposal on the white sandy shores of Belle Mare Beach.
In 2022, Alison sold her business and joined the Artisan Travel team as Customer Support Assistant. She loves making our guests feel valued, solving their problems and ensuring they have an incredible holiday.
