I began my love affair with travel at the early age of 3 as I am the daughter of a world-famous concert violinist and spent a good deal of my childhood traveling the world with her as she concertized. I also followed her lead by pursing a life in the arts. Performing brought me to my first job in the travel industry aboard the premier luxury cruise line of its time, Royal Viking Line. What greater job fulfillment could one have than doing what they loved and seeing the world at the same time? I then worked for the luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises for 15 years and knew that travel would be an integral part of my life. Cruising was my initial entrée into the industry and I have been fortunate to have had vast experience with luxury, premium, and expedition markets. However, I am also passionate about adventure and expedition travel as well as luxury experiences on land, including tours and hotels.
I started Sterling Journeys, an affiliate of Sixth Star Travel, after realizing that I wanted to inspire clients to explore the world with a different mindset, delving more deeply into cultural enrichment and experiencing their destination more fully. Designing and collaborating with my clients to create that perfect itinerary is incredibly rewarding, whether it be in Europe or on a safari or even finding that perfect hotel room. I also wanted to provide a seamless experience, anticipating my client’s needs and producing a worry free vacation. I love what I do, I love serving my clients and as St. Augustine so beautifully puts it, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
