I took my first trip to China in 1979 and have been traveling ever since. I've lived abroad in four different countries - Germany, Spain, Taiwan and most recently 13 years in China - and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
My children were born in Asia and lived there until we moved back to the US in 2011. Starting a family overseas led to a whole new skill set: the art of international travel with children. China was the perfect base from which to explore other far-flung destinations including Mongolia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, Korea and the Philippines.
I believe that travel is the best gift we can give our children and ourselves. Travel is about education, about pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. The world is so incredibly diverse – how can we ever expect to understand the world around us without seeing it first-hand?
I feel privileged to be able to make a career out of travel. I spent over 15 years working and traveling around the world for TCS Expeditions, a tour operator specializing in private jet travel. My experience working for TCS came together with my experience traveling with my own children and I started planning trips throughout Asia for families in 2007.
Although I now live in Austin, Texas my heart is still "on the road" and I channel that passion into designing itineraries that will bring the world to life for my clients. I work closely with them to understand their specific needs and desires for each trip. I utilize my meticulous attention to detail, draw on my own travel experience and the vast resources of Brownell to put together trips that my clients will remember forever. Whether my clients want to plan a girls-weekend to celebrate a birthday, a romantic get-away to reconnect or family trip to explore the world, I can take care of all of their travel needs. I specialize in China and Southeast Asia but I can bring you the world!
