My Background

I have been a Virtuoso Travel Advisor since 2005, but have been traveling since I was a child. My father worked for an airline and I was exposed to the wonders of our world at a very early age, and the wanderlust has been with me ever since.

I love every aspect of travel, from the planning to the packing and of course, the actual traveling. I devour travel guides and am always looking for inspiration for my or my clients' next trip.

As a Virtuoso Travel Advisor, I work with my clients to turn their curiosity about a destination into an inspirational itinerary filled with experiences and activities they won’t find with an internet search. Some surprises I have arranged for my clients included: observing a Meerkat colony from a few steps away while learning about their habits from a naturalist, having lunch with a winemaker and his wife under the olive tree in their back yard, and attending a baseball game in Tokyo with a local fan. I want to turn all my clients’ travel dreams into reality.

I am honored to be one of a few select Virtuoso Travel Advisors designated as a Wanderlist® Specialist. I believe that leisure time is our most precious, non-renewable asset, and the one we spend the least amount of time cultivating. We create a Career Plan, a Financial Plan and a Health and Wellness Plan, but rarely take time to create a Travel Plan. Our “Bucket List” of places we would like to visit continues to grow and we dream about the perfect vacation, but our busy lives and chaotic schedules get in the way and before we know it another year has passed us by.

Using Virtuoso Wanderlist® I can help you turn your bucket list into a thoughtfully curated calendar of trips along with the best time to travel and projected costs, so you will never miss a vacation opportunity again. I will collaborate with you and your travel companions, diving deeper into the destinations you each want to visit, and suggesting experiences based on your interests to create your unique Travel Portfolio. Much the way a Wealth Advisor helps you create and maintain a financial plan for all the stages of your life, as your Virtuoso Wanderlist® Advisor I will help you create and maintain a plan for ensuring your most valuable asset – your leisure time, is protected and you have years of travel memories to share with the people you love.

Responsive Professional Advisor

Laura's coordination of my Tauck tour was not only professional but responsive. Laura first received and reviewed the tour information to make sure everything was in order before passing it on to me. She handled my concern regarding flight layovers immediately and satisfactorily. She even followed up on the credit that resulted from the change. Laura was a delightful professional to work with!

Laura booked the entire land package for us on this trip and did an excellent job. What most pleased us was the small hotel that Laura found for us in the medina of Rabat, a lovely place to stay. She also did an excellent job keeping us informed of all the developments with our packaged tour and making sure that the arrangements were all in place.

When I met with Laura for the first time, I was completely overwhelmed by trying to plan my European vacation online. Laura's calm, friendly demeanor put me at ease and infused me with confidence that this would be a trip of a lifetime. And, it was! Laura provided us with an outstanding itinerary for a 10-day adventure in Monaco and Italy. She accommodated our interests in history, local food, coffee and wine. All it all, it was a tremendous experience!

Laura understood what we wanted to see and put it together beautifully, a combination of tour and private driver. Her suggestions fitted our needs perfectly. She was thorough and coordinated transfers,. timing, and it all worked! I couldn't have put this together on my own for sure. Her communication with me was clear and she always answered questions promptly. Payments were managed well and her insurance suggestion saved us money. Her experience was just what we needed.

Laura was the reason we were able to experience the best of the best on our first trip to the South of France. It was flawless and magical! It was honestly a perfect trip because of her. Laura was responsive, flexible and always knew exactly how to pull together options based on your preferences, which made solidifying the itinerary extremely easy. Laura takes the time to get to know her clients and it is obvious that she genuinely cares about making sure there is no detail not considered and cared for.

This was not the first time we have used Laura and won’t be the last either:) Laura is fabulous from start to finish. We looked and evaluated multiple destinations before making our decision and Laura is patient and provides all the information necessary to make the best decision. Laura does a great job with matching the right level of culture, and adventure that fits our family. While on the trip she is also available during our trip to help with challenges and has been supportive of submitting claims on our behalf. I recommend her regularly to my friends and co workers!

Amsterdam and an Avalon river cruise in the Netherlands

Working with Laura was a delight. She was easy to contact by phone and responsive to our needs. Initially, she arranged the Avalon trip for the best available price. On her own initiative she changed our airplane seats to obtain the most comfortable arrangement. She helped us with day trips in Amsterdam--walking trip and the Van Gogh museum, in particular. I plan to work with Laura again for our next vacation trip.

Professional and knowledgeable travel advisor

We have worked with Laura on the planning of two trips. Alaska Cruise combined with a self drive along the Oregon California coast and a Scotland tour of the Highlands and the Scottish islands. Laura has always been very professional and provided travel options that we feel we would otherwise not have been aware of. She helped us design the self drive tour of Oregon/ California and proposed the Scotland tour company we used that was great ! Laura always followed thru in answering our many questions ! We highly recommend Laura as a travel advisor.

Trip to Berlin

Laura has always been exceptional when ever we book travel. This last trip was a sad requirement as our son passed away in Berlin Germany. Laura found us great airline rates on such short notice. She did all the leg work to ensure we had all the documentation in place as well as two seats together. She was able to book us in the Adlon Kempinsk Hotel, where we have stayed on another trip she booked, and was able to get us a wonderful upgrade through the Virtuoso system. We would certainly recommend Laura to anyone requiring travel assistance and expertise.
