Kirsty was born and raised in England, UK.
From the age of 4, her passion was dance and was lucky enough to receive training and graduate from the prestigious Arts Educational College. This led to a 10 year professional career as a dancer, working for 4 years at the famous Lido de Paris, France and travelling the world with major cruise-lines to destinations including Hawaii, Alaska, South America, the Mediterranean and also the Caribbean and Mexico.
In 2006, Kirsty married a Canadian and started her new life in Alberta. She worked for an Events Company and during this time gave birth to their son. When the family decided to move closer to her husband’s family in Ontario, Kirsty continued & progressed her career in Events. This not only included assisting companies and brides with their vision set up requirements, but she set up her own business to bring their ideas to life, offering the special touches for all kinds of events, weddings, parties, festivals and fundraisers.
In 2016 the family decided to pursue their dream of living near the water, so moved to Wallaceburg, where they now enjoy fishing on the Sydenham River in their own back yard.
Kirsty took this opportunity to consider a new start in a career she has always been passionate about, travel. Having been lucky enough to travel extensively throughout her career as a dancer, she is excited now to help others plan their dream vacations, to explore and experience our beautiful world.
