My Background

I may be a new member of The Society of International Railway Travelers team, but my interest in trains started when I was a little girl playing with my father’s model railroad sets in our basement in Louisville, KY. I grew up in a family that valued traveling, and I have loved visiting England, with a brief foray into Scotland. (No, we missed out on getting first-edition signed copies of Harry Potter, much to my regret!) I was graduated from Centre College in Kentucky, a small liberal arts college that emphasized the importance of reaching beyond one’s home borders. I was an English major at Centre, but I elected to study a language brand-new to me – Japanese – and to study abroad in Japan.

My four-month home-stay program showed me an entirely new way of viewing the world. From the Kinkakuji Temple in Kyoto to the Akiyoshido cavern in Mine City, each day was exciting. Even though I was an “outsider” to my Japanese host family and friends, they welcomed me wholeheartedly as they shared their culture with me. I now firmly believe in the ability of travel to enhance people’s open-mindedness and respect towards others. As a result, I’m excited to be working with IRT to help make our clients’ travel dreams come true!
