Virtuoso's Most Innovative Advisor 2014

As an oil-brat, I grew up living and traveling around the world; most of my youth spent in Europe and the Far East. After attending The Hotchkiss School, the College of Communications at Boston University, and a career in advertising and marketing, I settled in Austin with my husband to raise our family, on the condition that I could travel often and share the world with our children.

From this commitment to our children to embrace their world citizenship, Small World Travel was born. Madison and Ian journeyed to all 7 continents by the age of 12 and we continue to discover new destinations.

My clients share my passion for education through travel and allow me to orchestrate similar journeys for them. I specialize in custom family adventures including 6-12 month odysseys around the globe, using the world as a classroom, orchestrating the entire journey and offering "road school" curriculum design.
