My Background

My dreams began to come true after I married my husband Mike, and we took a three-week trip to Europe. I fell in love with planning the itineraries and exploring the exciting cities, as well as discovering charming, hidden gems along the way. Travel allowed me to experience the different cultures, art, and architecture the world has to offer.

However, it was discovering a passion for food and wine on that first trip to Europe that shaped my future. I started a successful catering business and small cafe, studied at the Culinary Institute of America, and became a wine educator and sommelier – all due to a desire to recreate the ambience and pleasure I found while enjoying fabulous meals and wine abroad.

I can now help make other people’s travel dreams come true in my role as a travel advisor. Whether you share my love of discovering food and wine through travel or simply want to take in the beauty of the world’s best destinations, you can have an experience that will be truly memorable……together we can create it. My favorite travel quotes is 'Live your life by a compass not a clock'
