After driving through South America and Europe in a VW camper as a child, travel was in my blood. Since then, I have taken cooking classes in Rome, yachted the Panama Canal, and consulted the Oracle at Delphi. It was only natural for me to turn my passion into my profession.

I graduated from Northwestern University with a concentration in the Medill School of Journalism. I spent the next 20 years raising my children, working in PR, and running a boutique design business. In 2006, my husband and I pulled our children out of school, took off for a year, and drove through 22 countries in Europe. Sharing my love of the world with my children is one of my favorite travel experiences, and I love to help other families create special memories through travel.

I work side-by-side with my clients, creating custom itineraries and VIP-ing them prior to their arrival. Let me help you see the world in a new way. Life is meant to be lived well.
