Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort
Amy’s love of tourism started from a very young age as her family were involved in managing tourism resorts.
While studying a Bachelor of International Hotel and Tourism Management, Amy was offered the opportunity to complete a six-month internship at Walt Disney World in Florida, USA, gaining real world experience and learning new skills.
Returning to Queensland and completing her degree, Amy worked in many diverse roles at Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort including reservations, marketing, reception, dive shop and the bar/café. Being agile and working across the business has enabled Amy to gain a strong understanding of the organisation and the operational requirements of an island resort.
Amy now enjoys a dual role of Digital Marketing Coordinator and Executive Assistant to the General Manager, giving her the opportunity to lead operational management issues and drive the Resort’s digital media channels. Amy’s role lets her share the island’s conservation efforts and her passion for sustainable ecotourism with the world via digital media.
Keen to continually develop her career and networks, Amy has volunteered on the Women in Tourism Gold Coast Committee and completed the Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s Young Professionals Mentoring Program.
"Be true to yourself, have confidence in your decisions and always wear a smile."
Since completing a Bachelor of International Hotel and Tourism Management, Amy’s career has been centered on ecotourism. Amy has a diverse range of further qualifications perfectly suited to island life including a Private Pilot Licence, a Recreational Boat Driver’s Licence and certificates in scuba diving. Working with Lady Elliot Island enables Amy to combine her passion for digital marketing, travel and conservation of the environment.
