Justine grew up in one of the most picturesque and remote countries in the world, New Zealand. From a young age, she spent time skiing on nearby Mt Ruapehu or family holidays to the dramatically scenic Cape Palliser, the southernmost point of the North Island.
After a six-year stint working in corporate hospitality in Sydney’s CBD, Justine changed her career path in 2007 to Tourism. Her accomplishments as a Travel Consultant for British travel company Trailfinders found her selected for overseas familiarization trips that ignited her desire for world travel even more. After living abroad in Canada and the United Kingdom, she travelled extensively before returning to Australia in 2014 when she completed studies in Marketing and Communications and joined the team at Aurora Expeditions.
Justine’s ambition and competence have led her to a diverse range of roles within Aurora’s head office and onboard their ships. As Hotel Manager, Assistant Expedition Leader and Expedition Coordinator, Justine has acquired a vast range of skills and knowledge to ensure all passengers, Expedition team, and Crew enjoy a safe and successful voyage. She has an effortless approach to problem-solving and an unconditional commitment to customer service.
When not onboard, Justine’s desire to explore the world remains whilst she continues to educate herself in scuba diving, photography, and videography.
