Wanderlust is in my soul. With 12+ years of experience & insider knowledge of over 80 countries, my passion is curating authentic & memorable holidays for discerning clients. I enjoy elevating my clients holiday- whether it be to an exotic destination, a kid-friendly family vacation, a getaway with friends to a private villa or a romantic beach getaway- being able to suggest off-the-beaten path cultural gems, introducing my clients to local designers & artisans, chefs & unique experiences throughout their travels. The secret to my success is developing a personal relationship with my clients- getting to know them so that I can suggest destinations & ideas that they themselves have yet to think of. And always striving to exceed expectations.

With over 20 years of experience, I am considered a pioneer in “wellness tourism,” as noted in Fast Company and The New York Times and a "wellness expert to watch" per Condé Nast Traveler. Named one of Condé Nast Traveler Top Travel Specialists 2021.

When I am not planning travel for my clients I am typically getting my passport stamped in faraway places while hosting clients on a travel, wellness & lifestyle journey through my other company, Escape to Shape: Adventures in Wellness- expertly curated small group experience-based vacations that combine travel and exploration around the world with nutrition, wellness, fitness, and local flavor for a uniquely balanced experience. I spend my free time exploring exotic markets & vintage stores around the world; teaching yoga to adults & kids (often virtually) or entertaining friends at home in Hudson, NY. I am passionate about yoga, meditation, Pilates, hiking, art, connection, giving back to the communities that I visit - and of course, travel.
