Store Team Members

Ashlee Litfin – Consultant

My passion for travel began in 2010 when I travelling independently overseas for the first time. This was to attend an archaeological conservation course in Italy. I spent 6 weeks in Italy and have always wanted to return one day to live. I earned an Honours Degree in Archaeology in 2014 and decided I wanted to combine my passion for heritage and travel into the one. My goal is to share with the world the importance of heritage and to teach respect and understanding to tourists who visit heritage sites; particularly those which are highly degraded.

Places visited:
Australia, Thailand, Indonesia & Italy
