My Background

Inspired by her grandmother’s mementos from Spain and Morocco, Jessica’s desire to travel began at an early age. Years later, she studied abroad at the University of Oxford, England and hiked 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago through northern Spain. Since then Jessica’s travels have taken her throughout Europe, Asia, South and Central America, Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean and Mexico. After fifteen years in event planning and destination management, Jessica made the switch to independent luxury travel and has not looked back.

Be it family travel, a romantic getaway or an adventurous endeavor, Jessica loves customizing travel experiences for clients and encouraging them to consider destinations not previously on their radar.

Working with Jessica was seamless. We told her where we wanted to go for our honeymoon, and she put together two proposals for us. One for Bali, and one for Fiji. After reviewing, we selected Bali, and thus began the most luxurious, wonderful honeymoon. Everything was planned beautifully. From our tour guide & personal driver, to the various activities and accommodations, Jessica made our honeymoon truly spectacular. We flew from LA to Taipei, to connect to Bali, but due to a medical emergency on board we had to divert to Tokyo. Jessica was immediately available and responsive to help us with this slight conundrum. THIS was the moment I thanked God we found Jessica. Then we saw our villas in Bali, and we thanked God again, and again....because WOW. I will be referring everyone I know to Jessica.

Jessica was great to work with! She was very responsive, attentive, and got to know us and our needs for our Honeymoon. I would absolutely work with Jessica again and recommend her 100%! We had a FABULOUS trip with no stress. Jessica took care of everything and planned amazing day trips and getaways that we never would've found if we had planned the trip ourselves. Jessica was very transparent about what to expect with each excursion and our travel. She made recommendations of what to do and not to do. When we had a question while on the trip, she responded right away and helped us. Planning a honeymoon while planning a wedding was a daunting task, but once we found Jessica there was no stress at all and we got to just enjoy the planning. Thank you Jessica for all of your help, advice, and recommendations. Our trip was a dream and you helped us make it possible!

Honeymoon to Playa Mujeres

By: Robert Smith

Jessica was incredible! She provided numerous options for our Honeymoon and catered all recommendations to exactly what we were looking for. The recommended resort was not one we had heard of, and ended up being more than we could have imagined. She made it so once we landed, everything was handled and there was no need to worry. There was someone there to cater to us every step of the way. The process of booking excursions through Jessica was also hassle free. She always made herself available and very attentive to our asks. I would recommend her to any of my family and friends. 10/10 service!!

We LOVE working with Jessica. This is the second trip she's planned for us. Both have been outstanding! She got to know exactly what we like and value and has delivered for each of our trips. We would recommend her to anyone who needs an agent and absolutely plan to use her in the future.

Hawaii Honeymoon!

By: Chris

Jessica was a pleasure to work with while planning our honeymoon! Planning a wedding was enough work on it's own, so we pulled the trigger on a travel agent for the first time so we'd have support for the honeymoon planning. Jessica came through at every step and gave us so many detailed options to complement our trip. We spent an amazing 10 days on Kauai and Maui! Thank you again and we look forward to our next adventure already!

Jessica continues to offer great, off the beaten bath, experiences that we could never locate or coordinate on our own. From lunch with a Portuguese couple and a tour of their 600 year old estate, to a private cooking class and dinner with a Portuguese chef in his home, Jessica consistently helps us find great experiences and activities that take our trips to the next level.

A Vacation with Many Parts

Our vacation was complicated and had many bits and pieces for 2 couples. Almost all planning was done by email which further complicated the process with 4 travelers copied and messages flying back and forth. In the end, it was a fabulous trip as Jessica knew it would be.

10 Year Anniversary Tuscany Vacation

Jessica is wonderful to work with! She takes a lot of time with you in the beginning to really understand what your needs are and then plans a trip that is luxurious, but can also meet you where you are budget-wise. She had many great ideas and the places we stayed and activities we engaged in were spot-on with who we are as a couple.

Honeymoon in SE Asia

By: Phill and Veronica

Reviewed on: 05 Jan 2019

Jessica was fantastic. From the start, she took the time to understand exactly what we wanted on our honeymoon and made it happen. I imagine we didn't make it easy for her since we wanted to cram as much in our two weeks as possible, but she crafted a great itinerary full of adventure, culture, and relaxation. We didn't have a single hiccup our entire trip--I'm sure because Jessica made sure everything was perfectly planned. Private transportation, beautiful resorts, preprinted travel vouchers, and our own travel app where we could reach out to her an any time (though we didn't need to), reassured us that we truly didn't need to worry about anything while traveling. Overall, Jessica's recommendations were great, and she was upfront about what was worth doing based on the time and money. Her honestly and knowledge was exactly what we wanted (and needed), and we would love to have her plan another trip for us!

Tutto Perfetto

By: Zan

Jessica's work exceeded my expectations. The trip to visit our son, who had been studying in Bologna all year, was put together in short order due to the demands on our own calendars. From Bologna we traveled to Tuscany with our younger son and met our older son and his wife. Jessica arranged all transports, advised us instantly on the morning of our departure that our connection through Munich had been cancelled, and then expedited the purchase of train tickets - our own choice of transport - to get us from Munich to Bologna. She ably advised on a villa to rent in Tuscany and a comfortable apartment in a hip and fun neighborhood in Rome. Both accommodations were a delight, well-appointed, handsome, and comfortable. (We met the friendly and welcoming owners of both homes.) When my daughter in law had to re-book her flight out of Kennedy for the next day, Jessica helped, and arranged for her transport. I've already recommended Jessica to friends and hope to work with her again soon.

Thank you

Honeymoon in Croatia

Jessica was a pleasure to work with for our honeymoon. She was organized, friendly and provided many suggestions to us on some of the things that we could do over the ten days that we were in Croatia. We had the most wonderful time. The tour guides were fantastic in Split and Dubrovnik, our boat day was incredible and we went on a beautiful hike Hvar. Jessica planned it all for us and did a terrific job. In terms of the hotels we stayed in beautiful places with water views and impeccable service. I would highly recommend Jessica to plan any trip that have coming up as she will make it special and one you will never forget.

Once in a Lifetime Experience

By: Zach P

Reviewed on: 16 Oct 2019

My wife and I worked with Jessica to put together the perfect anniversary trip to Ireland and the results absolutely exceeded our expectations. Through a couple conversations over the phone, Jessica was able to gauge exactly what kind of experience would best suit us and tailor the experience to meet our needs. We had a custom-made itinerary that had us sampling as much as possible of the island but also had very little firm commitments which allowed us to have the the spontaneity that we desired. The accommodations we stayed in throughout the trip were among some of the nicest we've ever stayed at. We will absolutely be working with Jessica in the future and I cannot recommend any more highly that you do the same.
