Jamie joined Journeys by Design in 2015 to assist Angela in sales and marketing. As part of her role she oversees and develops innovative marketing strategies for the company as well as expanding the more traditional approaches. Jamie’s sales role will continue to evolve as she begins to travel to Africa on some of the company’s educational trips.
Originally born in London, England, but spent most of her growing up years in the picturesque fishing town of Rye, Jamie graduated with a BA Honours in Literature and Linguistics at Oxford Brookes University and gained a Masters with merit in Journalism at UWE in Bristol, after which she taught in Venice for six months and then went on to work in publishing, notably with Penguin Random House and then within William Morris Endeavour’s foreign rights department.
Jamie’s background and expertise in sales and communications makes her Angela’s perfect right-hand woman. As well as handling enquiries and sales, she will help Angela devise and write Journeys by Design itineraries and communiqués as well as take on marketing responsibilities.
