My Background

As a traveler envisaging your next adventure, your expectations are high, your aspirations unique, and your time precious. And while the world seems to be getting ever-smaller, the head-spinning range of options for ensuring your once-in-a-lifetime experience multiply by the day.

As a professional travel advisor, my stock-in trade are customized, well-crafted trip itineraries that deliver big on richly memorable moments, relaxation and peace of mind, and optimal return on your hard-earned leisure time. I employ a collaborative planning process toward fostering long-term, trusting relationships with my clients. I provide a highly personalized, value- and advice-driven service that consistently exceeds travelers' dreams for their vacations.

I was a banker and a non-profit consultant before embracing travel advising. Growing up in the DC area forged my lifelong interest in politics, international relations, and travel. My early career focused on the Asia-Pacific region, in which I have traveled extensively over three decades. I lived in Australia for 10 years, a transformative time in my early adulthood. Just recently I checked off a trip to my sixth of the world's 7 continents . . . be assured that my direct experience is broad.

One thing I tell clients is that information is not the same as verified, experience- and relationship-based knowledge of the type I as a Virtuoso advisor offer. Time, expertise, the right kind of research, strong networks and a bit of pizzazz are the key ingredients that make all the difference in a trip organized and supported all the way through by a professional. And did I mention incalculable value?

Even if you love doing travel planning yourself, I cordially invite you to contact me to talk about your next journey. It's always worthwhile running things past an expert!

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

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!!

Stacy reviewed options for our vacation with us and looked into several possibilities. She made arrangements for us at Dove Mountain that were perfect. We would definitely use Stacy again for future trips.

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.

Stacy listened to my needs and was able to very quickly put an incredible all expense package together that fit my families needs. She then stayed with me to the final steps of planning, offering her expertise and assistance. She is very personal and attentive.

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.

Stacy is wonderful to work with. She is a great listener, the most important quality for a travel advisor. She asks great questions, the next most important quality for a travel advisor. And she communicates wonderfully, both with me and with the property. We could not have been more pleased and are planning another trip with Stacy next month!
