Whilst Ana is on maternity leave, Marija will be taking over her role to make sure all the finer details of everyone's vacation is worked out prior to arrival. She is based in Dubrovnik, Croatia where she was born and raised. Her studies include a major in Hospitality & Service Management at the American College of Management & Technology in Dubrovnik. Her excellent tourism and English skills as well as her enthusiasm for the job provide JayWay guests with the feeling they are always in good hands on their travels through the Adriatic region.

During the course she has gained extensive working experience in the hospitality industry and after a paid internship with us at the end of the 2012 season is looking forward to meeting and assisting the hundreds of JayWay guests she will be responsible for in her first full season.
Ana is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her son (congratulations Ana and Kosta!), but she's not far away if Marija needs a helping hand.
