My Background

Having grown up around the travel industry-thanks to a father who worked for an airline-I was lucky enough to enjoy family vacations that were far from ordinary right from the start, and visited countries such as India, China and Hong Kong.

After college, I worked for travel agencies in Nebraska and Arizona, before leaving to pursue a career in outside sales. I never lost my love of exploring the world, and that's why I'm excited to be back working as an advisor and sharing that passion with my Protravel clients.

During my travels, I have learned to expect the unexpected and appreciate the experiences that come from any surprises. What's better, for example, than wandering the arrondissements of Paris and not caring if you get lost because of all of the new discoveries to be found down every cobblestone street?

I have a deep appreciation for history, culture and art, which has lead me on trips to more than 50 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Malta, the Cinque Terre and the Medici Villas & Gardens in Tuscany.

I am particularly familiar with Italy, having visited six times over the past seven years. Two of my favorite places are Florence for art history and shopping, and San Gimignano for opera at the Piazza Duomo on a star-filled summer evening.

I value my client relationships and my number one goal is to turn your travel dreams into unique, unforgettable and seamless experiences.
