Kathleen Nicholson started in travel in 1997. Straight after finishing high school and an exchange year in Europe there was never any doubt that Travel would be the way of the future.

After almost 20 years working up from junior consultant to her current role as Owner/director with the business, her travel knowledge and experience has continued to grow. The continued success of TTFN travel is as a result of the belief that service and relationships are the key to ensuring happy clients!

Sharon Bacich
Senior Travel Consultant

Sharon commenced with TTFN Travel in October 2019, bringing with her a wealth of experience in the leisure side of the business, with a particular flair for organising cruising experiences for her clients. Sharon’s decision to work in travel came naturally in her early 20’s after a gap year turned into 3 and half years travelling the world. It made sense to her to combine her love of travel with her love of people into a career that has spanned almost 30 years.  Sharon gains great satisfaction being involved in creating unforgettable moments for her clients, even at times being a little envious of the amazing holidays that she arranges for them. When people ask her what she does for a living she tells them that she sells dreams.
