Before founding Cornwall Discovered with Katie, Zoe has been working in the travel & tourism industry for the past 15 years. After completing a Classics degree and starting out in a customer-facing position on home soil at Cornwall’s fantastic Eden Project, Zoe decided to embark on an adventure at sea. Employed as a Tour Manager aboard a small educational-focussed cruise ship Zoe led a range of inaugural tour programs across Europe and Asia, before then taking a more land-based role designing tour itineraries world-wide.
Although blessed to have travelled to so many amazing destinations, Zoe always loved coming home to Cornwall and believes that her extensive travels meant she found a new appreciation of her home county and a new desire to show off everything it has to offer. In her free time and when not hosting Cornwall Discovered tours, she enjoys anything that means spending time by the sea – walking the Southwest coastal path, fishing and enjoying a crisp glass of wine at a coastal bar!
Having worked in travel and tourism for nearly 20 years, Katie brings a bedrock of knowledge into her shared, exciting new venture with Co-founder Zoe. Starting her career in travel and tourism, she completed her modern apprenticeship with Thomas Cook, before moving on to Customer Service and Business Development roles within business, cruising and adventure travel. Throughout her career she has had the opportunity to travel extensively and found that her passion lies in sustainable travel.
Bringing her adventures closer to home Katie is thrilled to be escorting her guests through this beautiful county, combining some of her favourite pastimes…including visits to the local sustainable gin distillery and getting our clients involved in some great sustainable initiatives...a good beach to start with!
