It was studying abroad in Italy and Greece while attending the University of Georgia that first ignited my passion for travel. After those transformative months , I went on to earn my BA in history, with an emphasis on Italian and European history, then my MBA at the College of William and Mary. After a brief career in the corporate world, I knew in my heart my future was in the world of travel. My passion is helping others make the most of their precious vacation time.

I opened a cruise-only travel firm in 1994 and evolved into the full service, land and cruise advisor that I am today. I use my extensive destination background – in Europe, the Caribbean, South America, the South Pacific, Alaska and Southeast Asia – to give clients the advice they need to make each day of their trip the most memorable it can be. With my connections through Virtuoso, I provide access to the world’s best luxury hotels, cruise lines and tour operators, complete with exclusive amenities clients can’t get anywhere else.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, traveling (of course!) and cycling.
