My Background

My life and career choices have been shaped by my curiosity about other cultures, and I love to see that spark of interest in my clients. I view the arts (followed closely by food) as central to how a society expresses itself. These perspectives inform my travel planning paradigm. Every country offers multiple aspects of itself - ancient & contemporary, tangible & intangible, natural and man-made - that I help my clients discover.

To me, travel at its best - beyond experiencing adventure in beautiful, iconic sites - imparts meaningful connections with a community, an understanding of culture and heritage of a place and of the local peoples’ stories. Travel is undeniably a force for good, for empathy and understanding. I intend that my clients’ trips be purposefully additive experiences for both them AND their destinations: I seek to make every journey matter.

A former banker and international non-profit professional, I'm a collaborative consultant at my core. I’ve seen six continents; sent clients to all seven; and my heart remains tied to my adopted 2nd home of Australia, where I spent 10 formative years, obtained dual citizenship, and forged lifelong connections. Oceania & Asia are regions I know well and love, but my global bucket list is both endless and ever-changing. Isn't yours?

People don't take trips. . . trips take people. - John Steinbeck

Very Highly Recommended

By: Hester

Reviewed on: 20 Nov 2013

Stacy did an excellent job planning several trips for our family. Her travel experiences and interests are broad and deep. Her excellent attention to detail provided experiences that matched our expectations.

Fantastic service

By: Spingirl

Reviewed on: 05 Aug 2015

Stacy was extremely helpful in planning our trip to the San Diego area. She suggested that we stay at the beautiful Hotel del Coronado, made all the bookings, ensured that we received special amenities (such as late check-out and points as Virtuoso travel customers). We were treated like special guests, thanks for Stacy's contacts at the hotel. Stacy also created sample itineraries for the days that we stayed - keeping in mind that we were a multi-generational group. There was something for everyone. Her responsiveness and customer service are unparalleled. She helped us have a truly memorable trip. I highly recommend Stacy.

Stacy planned a 2-week trip for my extended family of six to Spain. She was able to take our diverse interests and plan a trip that was perfect and stress-free. The trip was planned around my dad's 80th birthday and with Stacy's help, it was a trip that we will have many fond memories of for years to come! Thank you Stacy!!

I can not say enough about Stacy's ability to insight what we should look for in a hotel with her "spot on" recommendations. We just returned from Seattle after staying in a virtuoso property and were delighted with every aspect of the hotel. Our experience was wonderful and Stacy was a big part of that. She is helpful and professional in every way, and someone we will consult again for future travel.

This was the most positive travel planning experience I have ever had. Stacy spent an enormous amount of time and energy researching several travel options/itineraries for us.

First Anniversary Trip to Italy

By: Laura

Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2017

It's hard to put into words how amazing it was to work with Stacy. From the beginning, she took the time to get to know us and our travel preferences to be able to direct us to the best properties for our needs. She was flexible in meeting over the phone and in person, she always seemed to be available for us. She helped us narrow down the properties in a manageable way and helped us choose the most amazing places we have ever stayed. She handled pricing and sourcing every logistic from transport to hotels to touring options. She passed them along in a digestable way, like a "menu" that made it clear and concise for us to choose what we wanted. The travel app she set us up on was amazing! Everything we ever needed was included in that app. The other thing that was incredible was that she followed along with every day of our trip behind the scenes making sure things were going smoothly. I cant say enough about working with her and cant wait to work with her again.

Long weekend in Miami

Stacy's support and attention to detail is always off the charts and our most recent trip was no exception. She always invests the appropriate amount of time upfront to clearly understand what we want to get out of a trip and then she brings us outstanding options to consider. Stacy will be our travel agent as long as she will allow us the privilege of being her clients.

Spring Break Europe

Stacy is a great trip advisor. I was so pleased with Stacy’s communications with me before, during, and after our trip. It helped me to be able to relax, in what could otherwise could have been very stressful. Our connection from Paris to Florence was canceled due to a French Strike. Stacy found us a very nice and welcoming boutique hotel within walking distance the The Louvre and many other sites which added to our adventures!

just what we wanted

By: momof2

Reviewed on: 22 Apr 2018

Stacy was a delight to work with, offering several (but not too many) options for our consideration. She honestly weighed pros and cons of a few all-inclusive resorts, and we were happy with our choice. She hand delivered some documents, and from her own vacation texted to be sure we had arrived and checked in happily.

London/Paris anniversary trip

By: Kristin

Reviewed on: 22 May 2018

Stacy was enthusiastic, flexible, informative & inquisitive. She asked questions to better tailor our perfect trip. How much did we want to squeeze in? Day trips or wander city at leisure? On what details did we want to spurge or save? She gave options for hotels, but not too many. She was realistic about planning enough but not too many activities in each day. When I frantically texted about a time conflict for two tours, Stacy contacted the tour providers, made suggestions for plan changes and followed up afterwards, even getting a refund for the tour whose time caused a conflict. Grateful to have had Stacy plan both this trip and a trip to Italy... Contact her, you'll be glad you did!

Sedona and Grand Canyon

By: Stacy's fan club

Reviewed on: 25 Aug 2018

The only reason our trip was as amazing as it was is entirely due to Stacy's exceptional advice and guidance. We started with a thought that we wanted to take our teenage children to the Grand Canyon. Stacy suggested we split the trip and spend some time in Sedona at a resort we most likely never would have considered if planning this trip on our own. She then suggested some amazing side adventures like guided tours and a hot air balloon ride that resulted in this trip being what can only be described as an amazing lifetime memory we will cherish. I can't imagine ever planning another family trip without Stacy. She is an amazing professional that has consistently exceeded all our expectations.

Hurricane in Hawaii

Stacy was very concerned about our well being while being in Hawaii during Hurricane Lane. She reached out to us constantly to check on our safety, and even contacted the hotel to be assured there was no danger to us. She booked our spa appointments before our arrival and ensured we received the room location we requested. Would never travel without her service and expertise. Makes us smile whenever we speak!
