My Background

Stephanie’s earliest memory flying over the Egyptian Pyramids instilled a passion for travel that continues to this day. A childhood of living globally, speaking multiple languages and soaking up the culture worldwide inspires her daily life. After working for the Sundance Institute in their summer Playwrights and Film Laboratories and the Film Festival, Stephanie completed the Boston University Culinary Program and treasures her time spent over the stove with Jacques Pepin and Julia Child. She still pinches herself that she shared a cup of tea with Julia in her famous kitchen.

Based in the North Shore of Chicago, Stephanie has been traveling the world with her two children and husband for the past twenty years. She believes that traveling can feed your soul! She is a detail-oriented Luxury Travel Advisor who specializes in both family, and couples travel with a strong focus on authentic and noteworthy experiences that create memories of a lifetime. Stephanie is as comfortable tasting new food in a remote village as she is sipping champagne at a luxury resort and can coordinate all types of experiences.

She has been given a Masai name by the tribal elder, has hugged a panda, hiked the great wall of China, scuba- dived with Manta Rays, slept under the stars in Kenya, and Oyster’d in Tasmania. She enjoyed an epic high altitude brunch on a peak next to Mount Everest, hiked in the Annapurna Mountain range of Nepal, explored the cold war sector of Berlin with her 13-year-old son in a Russian Trabant and danced with the retirees in the Pavilions of Beijing's Forbidden Garden.

wonderful trip to London

It is always a pleasure to work with Stephanie and her attention to detail always makes the difference. The tours she was able to arrange were amazing and I doubt many people would have the opportunity to see Churchill's war room with the director or the changing of the guard at Wellington Barracks and meet some of the men including the commanding General of the Coldstream Guards! I was also able to see the houses of Parliament and many rooms closed to the public. it was a wonderful trip! Stephanie also has a wonderful relationship with my hotel the Goring and I was treated in a extra special way.

Stephanie is a miracle worker! She worked miracles for us when we decided to go to Europe 2 months before our departure date. Last minute, She planned an amazing trip for us staying at wonderful hotels, private tours with tour guides, pizza making classes, gladiator classes, sandal making classes, on top of wine tour and lunch, day boat trip touring the Amalfi Coast, etc... she booked last minute flights getting all 9 of us, flying from different cities, to meet in one city so that we could fly to Italy together. She went above and beyond to insure we had the best trip possible. She moved quickly puttng this trip together and quickly again when we had to cancel this trip. She was able to get most of our money back. She worked tirelessly for us throughout!. She responds propmtly to emails and phone calls, has wonderful ideas, has great connections, and is very creative . She is a miracle worker and we will definitely have Stephanie plan all future trips for us!

Once again Stephanie is awesome to work with! She listens to our travel desires, like and dislikes, and preferences. She is creative and tailors our tips to meet our travel desires. Upon travel day we leave with no questions unanswered, no concerns, and no scrambling at the last minute for any kind of travel information. Our travel, transportation, dining reservations, activity reservations and tours, hotels, and flights are ALL taken care of. If we have specific interests we would like to partake, she will research the best places and set it up. She takes into account if it is a family vacation and will suggest and advise accordingly... What works for what age groups, what might be too much for certain age groups, suggests ideas good for kids, suggests activities for grownups, etc. It feels to us that Stephanie plans for us as she would plan for herself and her family. There is no holding back on what incredible experience she sets up for our travel experiences.

Stephanie was outstanding and was able to adeptly accommodate our range of traveler needs for a trip that included kids as young as three as well as grandparents. She truly customized the trip to suit what we wanted so that it was exactly what we wanted to do but with the ease and benefits of an excellent agent arranging and coordinating it.
