Sharon O'Brien - Director 


Hola Travellers,  
Welcome to where Travel Dreams are created !
I'm Sharon or Shaz to many. 
My 'addiction' in life has always been Travel since day 'Uno'.


My first memory of travel was travelling between Ireland

and England by ferry as a very young nipper.
I can still remember the rough seas !


My parents are adventurers and emigrated from
Ireland to New Zealand for a brighter future.
Not knowing a soul in New Zealand certainly takes a

gutsy attitude, especially with three young daughters

in tow.

I will always be grateful to them for my experience

of new horizons.

I have been very fortunate to travel the Globe and
live on both sides of the Equator.

I have years of experience in this wonderful industry
(30 plus in fact).

During this time I managed Leisure

Travel Agencies, worked in Corporate in both NZ
& the UK, managed Incentive Groups, created

Group Travel and escorted many a group to

amazing corners of the globe.


And yes I am still going -regardless of what the

World throws at us -  still Love It.
Travel will always be in my blood. 
I'd like to think I know a little bit of the World -

just a wee bit :)

For me it is not about possessions but experiences.
I have many many stamps in my passport, but loads

more pages to fill ! 
My goal in life is to achieve  'Passport Heavy' status.
A passport full of rich adventures & life experiences,

only the travelled world can bring. 

Come along on the adventure, and let's get passport

heavy together.

I can't wait to create that amazing travel adventure
just for you !

Michelle Pine - Events 


Hi I'm Michelle,
I look after the exciting events side of the business
at Live Breathe Travel. 
My background is Project administration and management.

Over my many years in the corporate environment I have

worked for many a large company.
From a multinational computer technology corporation,

Regional Council, to a Premium Wine Brand (handy!)

through to a well recognised Sports Club, my career

has never been boring. 
Over my 30 years in business  I have had many a challenging

role, am certainly a girl that loves a challenge.
So when Live Breathe Travel invited me to help create their

Events, I was definitely in!
I consider myself a Right Brain creative, even with all the

Left Brain skills I possess.
I have a passion for planning, love to multi-task

(what girl doesn't?!) problem solving's my thing, and get a kick

out of implementing an idea and seeing the end result

in all it's glory.
Our team are full of fun stuff and fabulous ideas.
We love the odd fancy dress up ourselves :) 


So if it's a special birthday celebration, corporate conference

or event, product launch, an overseas or local incentive trip

for your business, we can't wait to help.

In my down time I enjoy spending time with my husband,

two children and our fur babies.
I have two sisters I love to adventure with, when time allows

love to travel New Zealand and the World.

We look forward to creating that perfect event or celebration

for you.

Minnie O'Brien-Kelleher - Office Junior Extraordinaire

Being cute, definitely has it's advantages.

(I manage to get away with murder in the office-it's those


My main role is fetching coffee and the mail - I get as far as

the kitchen and get a wee distracted - it's all about the treats !


When I'm not meeting and greeting,  I'm having belly rubs

from the team or having a wee nap in a sunny corner

of the office - dreaming I am on holiday too ! 

Look forward to seeing you at a puppy friendly cafe soon,

to hatch your next holiday!
