We wanted to take the chance to congratulate Leak as she has taken over as Andrea’s new Booking Coordinator! Leak is an amazing person – very kind, fun-loving, a wonderful mom, and incredibly hard working, and she has worked for Journeys Within for around ten years, as a Central Booking Assistant. If you have ever taken a tour with Journeys Within, then there is a strong chance that Leak helped put together your tour behind the scenes.
Having spent most of her younger years in Phnom Penh, Sreyleak or ‘Leak’ for short, eventually moved back to her hometown of Siem Reap to be closer to family and friends. She grew up with the dream of working in an office where she would get the opportunity to meet interesting people and work with different cultures. This led her to study Tourism and Hospitality Management at the Angkor City Institute, giving her the chance to share her passion for her country and help people to experience the wonders of Cambodia. After university, Leak began work at one of the top hotels in Siem Reap, the FCC Angkor, where she worked as Tour Coordinator, organizing interesting and exciting tours for the hotel’s guests. Sreyleak heard about Journeys Within through Linda and the two friends have worked together for years now, first as a Central Booking Assistant, and now as a Booking Coordinator.
Active Philanthropy is a core tenant of Journey’s Within’s company culture. We believe that a tour company not only has a responsibility to its guests, but also a responsibility to the countries in which we live and work. Beyond that, we believe that we have a responsibility to our team to provide the opportunity to grow. As the countries in Southeast Asia develop, we’ve seen our own team members take on new roles, gain new skills and education, found businesses, raise families and blossom. We are so proud to work with such amazing people!
