My Background

My passion for travel was awakened while studying abroad in London. A career in the wine trade enabled me to hone my skills as a wine and food educator and to design and escort numerous trips in Europe. Further experience as a corporate incentive travel planner,association executive and meeting & event planner has given me the tools to design experiential trips for individuals, families and groups.

As a member of the Saveur Travel Advisory Board, I create exciting and innovative gastronomic & cultural journeys throughout the globe. Curated adventures can include exclusive wine tastings, hands-on cooking lessons, culinary tours, food & wine festivals, local farmers and artisan markets, chateaux lodgings, private villas, custom designed driving itineraries, a myriad of cultural & wildlife immersion experiences and much more.

We took our 35th anniversary trip to Blackberry Farms in Tenn at Jennifer's recommendation. It was the perfect place to celebrate - we are grateful to Jennifer for suggesting it. We are not beach folks and love the mountains, good food and good wine. After listening to what we enjoy, Jennifer came up with Blackberry Farms and was she dead on. Thank you Jennifer - it was a trip to remember.

We have planned and traveled several times with Jennifer on trips that had a lot of complicated parts. She is thorough, knowledgable and patient in the planning process. She is available to trouble shoot during the trip which to us is worth so much. We recently had to cancel a trip and she was most helpful in the process of dealing with the travel insurance. Jennifer is great!

Great experience

Jennifer has been lovely to work with. Originally I contacted her about a possible expedition cruise to Anarctica. Since that was still in the future and I wanted to get more comfortable with working with a advisor I asked if she would assist with a trip to Iguazzu I wanted to try while going on a 2 week Cape Horn cruise. Jennifer has always been very responsive and kept in contact with me concerning this even though it wasn't our original plan. She signed us up at the Belmond under a special plan allowing us to have a upgrade to a king suite and $90 credit. Very nice. Also she arranged the transportation from the Melia Iguazzu in Argentina to Brazil to the Belmond with their service. Very happy with everything we have done together and know our future plans will be as successful. I changed from a expedition cruise to trying a river cruise ending in Oberammergau and look forward to working with her when we finalize in a year or so.

This time we had a budget and I was blown away by the quality of the flights and hotels she arranged. In addition, we were not able to make one of our connections and she responded immediately with great advice as to how to navigate the hiccup. I always recommend Jennifer to my friends and they are always thankful for her guidance. Jennifer is a treasure!
