My Background

Michelle recently joined the Departure Lounge team as an independent contractor and founded TriBeCa Traveler, a New York-based boutique travel consultancy specializing in personalized, one-of-a-kind itineraries and experiences. She is the publisher of BonVoyageBaby, a luxury family travel site, as well as an AFAR Local Expert for NYC, a member of the International Food Wine and Travel Writer’s Association, and a sometimes contributor for other travel and lifestyle publications.

Over the past 10 years, Michelle has planned trips of all kinds -- ranging from a simple ski break to Jackson Hole with private instructors, spa treatments and dinner reservations to much more complicated once-in-a-lifetime trips, like one to Longyearbyen and the North Pole last spring, where her clients went dog sledding, snowmobiling and even spent a night at Barneo Ice Camp, a Russian-operated drift station on the frozen Arctic Ocean near the North Pole.

With two young kids of her own, Michelle's specialty is family travel. Her 10 month old daughter has already been to 5 countries (including Argentina,Uruguay, Italy, Spain and Turkey) and her 4 year old son, 12! As a family, they've stayed at some amazing properties and have had some amazing experiences -- hiking Mt Etna last summer, truffle hunting through an Istrian forest and attending the Sapporo Snow Festival, to name a few.

A luxury hotel expert and a foodie at heart, Michelle loves to create high quality experiential itineraries for her clients and advise on the very best properties, shops, restaurants, and experiences particular to a destination. For her, personalization is key, and understanding that one trip does not fit all is truly important.
