Heading up the Glorious DMC team in Brazil, Vanessa has been with Glorious DMC Brazil since April 2016.

Vanessa has a wealth of experience, having worked in in electronics and avionics and has put her Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering to good use working with Internet Companies, an airline and in management roles overseeing the systems of several banks in the finance industry. She is no stranger to tourism however, having opened and built up a transport company specialising in services for Turkish guests with her Turkish husband.

The rest, as they say is history, and now Vanessa puts her extensive experience in management, customer relations and finding solutions to good use, spending her days negotiating new partnerships between Glorious DMC and a range of travel agents and tour companies in Brazil.

Vanessa is passionate about Turkey, and while she still has lots of places on her “to visit” list, a favourite destination for Vanessa is Ephesus “I loved Ephesus! Whenever I visit Ephesus I can almost see the horses and the ancient Ephesians living there!” she says.

As for other destinations, Vanessa is a fan of Natal and Maceió in Brazil’s Northeast because of their beautiful beaches, warm water and cleanliness.  She also loves Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Her future travel plans include a trip to Italy or Spain, as well as another trip to Turkey where Cappadocia is high on her list of places to visit. “Cappadocia for me is magical, a very different landscape and a glorious mix of merged colours.  My dream is to fly with a hot air balloon, and be able to see everything from up above!” says Vanessa.

In her free time Vanessa keeps busy with her children, travelling, cooking, crochet and other handicrafts, reading, and taking care of her flowers, especially her orchids. She is also a fan of the beach, water sports and the great outdoors in general.

When asked about her favourite part of her job Vanessa says “It makes people happy! Who can be sad travelling? I love preparing travel plans for people, and I love learning the history of places, about our guests and making new friends. I love the idea of creating good memories for our guests!”
