Alanna has been the president for BOA for 4 Years, and still going strong!
Starting her career like most people in Tourism do, Alanna travelled through Europe in 2000 and came home with a burning desire to study tourism. Alanna’s first role was with Australian Pacific Touring (APT), Sydney’s leading Day Tour Operator.
It was in 2011 that the doors were opened to the Youth & Adventure industry and Alanna hasn’t looked back. Starting up a new brand in any industry isn’t easy but with the support of the industry and her ambition to succeed, the brand took off.
A new opportunity presented itself in 2015 which saw Alanna join the team at Colourful Trips as General Manager.
Alanna is active within the industry in her role as President of the Backpacker Operators Association of NSW (BOA NSW) and juggles her career and family alongside her other passion as a director at Life Project Cambodia. LPC supports students and their families in Siem Reap Cambodia, actively working with the local community to develop programs tailored to their specific needs.
