My Background

I grew up traveling; my parents had me on my first cross-country flight at age 1. When I was 8, a flight attendant on a long haul between Germany and the US gave me the paper flight map; to this day it hangs over my desk as a reminder of the powerful connections that result from travel.

Growing up, I always wanted to be an architect. After graduating from Miami University, I moved to Scotland to pursue a masters in Classical Archaeology & Ancient History.

A family vacation on a Lindblad Expeditions ship in Alaska opened my eyes to a new world. I went to work for Lindblad, on board the ships, for three years.

I find the world fascinating. I collect old maps/globes, and I read the news every morning over coffee. When I discovered that my passion was a mixture of travel and education, I booked a one-way ticket to New Zealand, threw my computer and camera in a bag, and set off to solo road trip across NZ, Australia, and Asia. 9 countries, 19 months, and 163gb of photos later, I returned home.

To me, travel opens doors you never knew were there and opens your eyes to the many threads that make up your life. Let me help you plan your next adventure!

Awesome Trip!!!

Sarah planned a wonderful trip to the Shetland Islands for a Viking festival--Up Helly Aa. She realized as we planned the trip that it also coincided with "Burns Night", the annual dinner in honor of Robert Burns, Scottish poet. She was able to secure tickets to one of the top Burns night dinners in Edinburgh, a kilt and tartan filled festival of Scots, with fabulous food--the Prestonfield House is one of the top hotels and restaurants in the city. She arranged the airport transfers from the airport to the hotel and back again--prompt, courteous, and very knowledgeable drivers. She handled the cancellation of our flights (the whole airline shut down its flights) to Shetland promptly and was able to quickly book us on alternative flights with another airline at no extra cost. In Shetland, she had arranged for us to get hard-to-come-by tickets to one of the halls for the dance celebration after the fire festival. We had a fabulous time, and I would recommend it to anyone!
