Frankie McCarthy

Born and brought up in East London, Frankie studied Art and Design as a foundation degree specialising in fine art, graphic design and illustration.

Since finishing, she has worked her way through various companies in the television and publications industry, her first in advertising at the Times Educational Supplement. This was followed by three years in television production for the likes of Sky, Channel 5 and the Discovery Channel as a production coordinator for a range of documentaries.

Upon completion of her contract, and having previously decided that a change of scene into something more environmentally-conscientious and people-oriented was on the cards, Frankie joined Journeys by Design.

Her job’s initiation as office administrator was single-handedly orchestrating the move to our new offices. Nowadays, Frankie manages the sales admin team and works closely with guests pre-trip to ensure seamless itineraries are delivered. Alongside Sales Manager Hannah, Frankie uses her organisational skills and past experience to ensure that a guest’s journey from an enquiry to their tailor-made safari is as smooth as possible. Her knowledge continues to expand as she travels to Africa’s frontiers each year.
