Meet the Tutors
I always knew I wanted to travel, but I never envisaged that one day I would be teaching learners about Travel and Tourism.
My adventure began here at the Grimsby Institute where I studied Travel and Tourism at college, I then went onto the University Centre Grimsby to study a foundation degree in Tourism and Hospitality Business Management. I took a year out of education to travel and work and then came back to top up my degree to the BA Hons in Tourism Business Management.
It was during my time on my degree that I was successful in obtaining a summer placement out in the States. I spent three amazing summers working at Moby Dick's Restaurant, Cape Cod as Front of House Manager. During my time studying I worked in various restaurant and hotels and travelled all over the world. On my return I gained a job at Grimsby College in the Hospitality department as a Learning Practioner within the Gallery Restaurant.
