My Background

I believe that travel opens one’s eyes to the connections between cultures. Travellingcreates learners and observers out of all of us, giving us new perspective andimpacting how we live our own lives, for it is impossible to see the world andremain both indifferent to it, and unchanged by it. You and theenvironment you create around you are the sum of your experiences and travels,whether it be to the City That Never Sleeps, the Pearl of the Adriatic, theCity of Sails, or the End of the World. As Eleanor Roosevelt so eloquentlystated, “The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience tothe utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richerexperience.” Each experience brings us closer to an emerging world community ofglobal citizens who are working together for a better tomorrow.

My passion for travel was ignited early on, as I am the child of avid travelers who decided that three children were not going to dampen their adventurous spirits! Luckily for my brothers and I, that meant we got to tag along on all their crazy adventures. And in the years since, my love affair with the world has continued to grow.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a BA in International Studies. Immediately post-graduation I relocated to Nashville and worked as a Manager for a luxury home exchange company before setting my sights on a career that would allow me to work with more detail, and more depth on every component of my client’s trips.

Let me open the door to discovery and inspiration for you and your family, and together we can design an experience that is impossible to “google.”

Olivia was awesome, gave us great direction and insights. We have never used a travel service before and never been on a cruise. She made the entire experience easy.

Best Travel Agent

This was, by far, the easiest trip I've ever planned- thanks to Olivia!! She asked all the right questions, We barely had to tweek the itinerary. She knew one of the guides we had and couldn't have been more spot on with our pairing. She was available to us via email at all times- not that we needed her. Our trip ran smoothly and could not have better planned. I will definitely use Olivia again- as will my friends!!

Olivia planned a wonderful trip for us and we received upgrades at all the beautiful places we stayed! There was always a special welcoming gift waiting at each of our destinations and we were pampered the entire trip. We will never plan another trip without her!

As usual it was an absolute pleasure to work with Olivia. She always gives us a few different options on lodging, all of which look amazing. She listens each time to what we want on the trip and is very patient when we change our minds ! The itinerary is always well organized and precise. We have come to rely on Olivia for any trip we make and have been recommending her to all our friends!

Trip of a Lifetime

By: Breezy

Olivia helped plan our honeymoon to Moorea & Bora Bora and words cannot even describe how amazing this trip was. She made the process so unbelievably easy! She worked with us to understand what we were looking for, matched us with perfect properties, recommended fun activities, and made sure that EVERY last detail was accounted for. We didn't have to worry about one thing! She even checked in with us during our trip to make sure that all connections and plans were going accordingly. She is extremely dedicated to her clients and you can feel the passion she has for her career through her customer service. I highly recommend working with Olivia if you're looking for a stress free way to plan your trip of a lifetime! I will definitely be using her again.

Olivia was delightful and very helpful in terms of recommendations and good information about logistics. Also the deals she was able to find more than made up for her fee for service. I would absolutely work with her again.

Positive Experience

By: Sibby


Reviewed on: 28 May 2017

Olivia is a great travel advisor. I worked with her in order to plan my honeymoon. When issues presented during the actual trip she actively involved herself in order to make sure the resort remedied the situation. Olivia is easy to work with, accessible and excellent when it comes to follow through with planning etc. This is my second time working with Olivia and I had a great experience both times. In the past month I have recommended her to two colleagues in the process of planning life event trips and I will continue to recommend her to anyone interested in working with a travel advisor.

Expert and thoughtful help

Olivia was always prompt in answering questions, fulfilling requests and giving suggestions. Her choices matched our expectations and her connections to guides in the areas we visited meant we had top notch care. She made changes when asked on the weekend and thought ahead to ask a hotel for a takeaway breakfast for an early flight back home.

Olivia is a pleasure to work with. She made sure all accommodations were accounted for, I had options to best suit my travel needs, and secured the best pricing available.

Perfect Honeymoon in St. Lucia!

By: KLB


Reviewed on: 10 Nov 2017

Olivia planned the most amazing honeymoon in St. Lucia for my husband and I! We were both blown away not only by the beauty of the island and the extremely luxurious resorts we stayed at, but by how easy Olivia made everything for us! From the moment we got off the plane, Olivia had everything arranged from the transportation to and from the airport, a water taxi between our resorts (which was amazing!), to even having surprises for us at both resorts which shows how much she cares about making your trip special! She even had a picture from our wedding, which was just days before, framed in our room when we arrived! Working with Olivia on planning it was also so easy - she was extremely accommodating with our requests and changes. She also gave us great suggestions and guidance while planning which we wouldn't have known otherwise. I highly recommend planning any vacation you have with Olivia if you want a truly once in a lifetime experience instead of just a regular trip!

Awesome! She asks the right questions and has the best suggestions. I feel very confident using Olivia to plan vacations. I know I can count on her- even when we’re out of the country.

Travel made fun!

By: Charlie Watts


Reviewed on: 11 Jan 2018

Our family worked with Olivia to plan a Christmas trip to Ireland. After just one phone call -- in which Olivia asked good questions about our hopes/desires and budget -- she came back with a fantastic menu of ideas for the overall itinerary and specific activities. We narrowed things down and then she made all the arrangements, working with in-country partners and her own team. She was always very available. We received a detailed itinerary and welcome package with all the relevant details (which helped us coordinate plans with our kids). We loved the hotels she picked as well as the tour guide she hired for a morning walk through Dublin. Other arrangements -- our rental van (we had six people), a professional rugby match, a brewery tour, an evening with a storyteller -- were all fantastic. Our goal was to make the holidays low-stress and yet fun and adventurous. Olivia did exactly that and was a pleasure to work with throughout! We highly recommend Olivia. Thank you so much!

Great experience all around!

Olivia is excellent. Very on top of things and takes care of all the details. Her hotel recommendations were right on! Great neighborhoods and exactly what we requested as far as amenities. We often get lists of nearby hotels or sights as part of the service and I was hoping we would get some recommendations but we didn't. No biggie!! We will definitely use her again.

Family trip to Italy

Reviewed on: 08 Aug 2018

Working with Olivia was great! She listened carefully to our thoughts and hopes for our trip and organized an itinerary that fit those preferences and our budget. She also provided advice for items we preferred to book ourselves and incorporated all of those separate items into our itinerary so we easily found all of our information in one place. Olivia's knowledge and resources are vast and I will highly recommend her to friends looking to book travel.
