I have been so fortunate to have had many “trips of a lifetime.” From trekking in the Himalayas, to cross country skiing near the Arctic Circle, to snorkeling in the Caribbean, my passion for travel has led the way.  I have watched the sun rise over the temples of Angkor Watt in Cambodia and the sun set over ancient Etruscan walls in Tuscany. I’ve sipped wine in Parisian cafés and tea in Istanbul’s Spice Market. I’ve barged in Burgundy, been on safari in Africa, and climbed the ruins of Machu Picchu.  Each destination was captivating and made up of the most wonderful people and cultures.  Although my quest is not over, now as an independent travel consultant my desire is to put that firsthand knowledge to work for those who likewise relish all that traveling has to offer.

When I decided to strike out on my own in 2007, I chose to partner with Travel Experts, a host travel agency also located in Raleigh.  One of the most important benefits of our partnership is having direct access to Virtuoso, the industry’s leading network for leisure travel. As a member of Virtuoso, I can tap into exclusive products, services, and worldwide contacts that allow me to offer my clients a higher level of travel experiences. As a Virtuoso traveler, you are recognized as one of the most prestigious guests in the world!

So now that you know a little bit about me, let me learn about you and what type of travel experience you are looking for. The opportunities are truly endless so let’s design that perfect journey together.
