My Background:

My entire professional career has been in the travel industry, giving me diverse experiences that literally span the globe! I started on the corporate side as a marketing coordinator for one of Russia's largest travel companies, progressed to arranging trade missions for U.S. and Russian Federation officials and entrepreneurs, and organized Ambassadors' receptions. From there, I decided to focus on a completely different challenge - running adventure expedition travel to the remote corners of the Russian Federation and Central Asian countries. My background in handling unique travel logistics prepared me to own and operate Houston's premier luxury, concierge travel advisory company - River Oaks Travel, which provides our clients with the best in class concierge travel advisory and support services.

Travel Experience:

Moscow born, and now Houston based, through my extensive background in the travel industry I have been fortunate to explore many incredible places in the world. My favorite travel destinations are as varied as they are many, though I have a particular fondness for active, adventure, and luxury expedition travel. I love experiencing new destinations firsthand with family and friends, but always view each new journey with our clients in mind. By combining on-the-ground experience with extensive educational training, I am able to create private guided itineraries worldwide that take our clients behind the scenes and to locations others would only dream of. Whether it be England, France, Portugal, Italy, Eastern Europe, African Safaris, Japan, Canada, China, the Caribbean, Mexico, and (of course!) Russia, I happily and excitedly personalize these travel destinations for all my clients.

How I work:

My team and I work exclusively for our clients, not for suppliers - we truly believe that your interests come first. The process begins with a simple interview to learn more about your travel wishes, and after our collaborative process you end up with a unique travel portfolio curated to your travel style. Whether you're looking for help on a single trip or exploring how to turn your dreams into a long term Wanderlist travel plan, I would love to learn more about you.

We charge travel planning fees based on the complexity of the travel design project, both to maintain transparency and cover the extensive time that we dedicate to every itinerary. Planning fees start from $350 per trip, or we offer our yearly membership subscription that gives you unparalleled access to my team's extensive travel planning and concierge services. Regardless of where you decide to travel, our unique process is designed to provide added value, time management, unique ideas, peace of mind, destination knowledge, and personal industry contacts to make your experience one-of-a-kind.
