A former booker of luxury round-the-world trips for diamond-dripping clients, Stevie developed a love of all things tweed while working as ‘country concierge’ for a small company that specialised in organising hunting, fishing and falconry breaks in the UK and Ireland for the British aristocracy. Now happily ensconced at Mr & Mrs Smith, she is coming to terms with the lack of an office butler by indulging her appetite for fabulous hotels as often as she can.

She spent a year there working for Projects Abroad, welcoming new volunteers, calming their nerves and helping them plan their trips around Asia with her expert knowledge of where to surf in Indonesia, the top shopping spots in Singapore and the hottest places to party in Thailand. Then she headed back to London and managed a Covent Garden event venue, Wallacespace, before putting her passion for travel to work for Mr & Mrs Smith. With her love of luxury and boutique hotels, Jessica's an ideal addition to the team.

Feeling her language skills and wide-ranging globetrotting (she has 22 countries under her belt so far) were underused, Victoria made her move into the travel industry and is now working hard at Mr & Mrs Smith to ensure she can add a few more stamps to her passport – and help our members do the same.

Growing up in the USA, Becky spent her holidays making a detailed tour of North America, from the Bahamas to Las Vegas. A University College London exchange programme that saw her visiting seven countries in seven weekends really whetted her wanderlust and, after three years spent organising weddings and events in Chicago and London, she found her spiritual home at Mr & Mrs Smith.

After studying French in Glasgow, Katie swapped Scotland for the south of France to teach in Biarritz for a year, but returned to put together luxury tours for keen golfers across the bonny nation and over the water in Ireland. She then deflected back to France, spending a few years running the chalets of Verbier, as well as those of Saas Fee and St Anton, but chasing sunshine in between with trips to south-east Asia, Australia, Austria and Spain. She’s now firmly settled into London life as part of the Smith team.
