She’s one of those individuals who has hard work, gratitude and insight at the core of her being, and as such is a valuable asset and inspiration to every member of the team.
Always keen to learn something new, Lizé is particularly passionate and committed to the ever-changing and growing nature of tourism marketing and the tourism industry as a whole.
Windhoek born and bred, Lizé has been a rising star since an early age, excelling in academics and sport during her education at Pioneerspark Primary School and Academia Secondary School.
During her school career, she was always in the ribbons as a top ten academic achiever every year in high school. She was a part of her schools Learner’s Representative Council, captain of the school hockey team and Vice Head Girl during her matric year.
Despite all these extra responsibilities she passed matric with university exemption and went on to study Tourism at the prestigious Stellenbosch University (College) in South Africa. She achieved her National N4 and N6 Certificates in Advanced Tourism with distinction, ASATA Fares and Ticketing Certification, and a Certification from the Cape Wine Academy.
Her first job was at Naankuse Lodge where she learned as much as she could about tourism before heading back to her home town of Windhoek, to accept a position in the Conference and Functions Department at Arebbusch Travel Lodge.
As a passionate travel enthusiast, Lizé spends a lot of her time researching the latest tourism marketing techniques online. These internet explorations helped her to become more involved with the marketing aspects at Arebbusch Travel Lodge. This led to her ultimate promotion to Customer Relations Manager.
