My Background

After a career in commercial real estate and starting a family, I decided to pursue my passion for travel and become a luxury travel advisor. My love of travel began as a child when my parents would spend the summer traveling around Europe. This passion bled into adulthood where I enjoyed adventure travel with friends and as a solo traveler. As I started my own family, I was convinced that travel was one of the greatest gifts I could give my children. I choose to make travel a central part of our lifestyle as a family. The travel experiences that I have shared with my husband and with my two children have enriched our lives and have allowed us to try new things, see new places and appreciate new cultures and customs.

As a travel advisor, I encourage clients to embrace the region they are travelling in and to seek out the unexpected adventures. I think having some plans of “must do’s” is important, but to allot time to get lost, explore, eat and drink authentically. I provide unrivaled customer service and planning, but keep the itinerary unique and unparalleled.

Specialties: safari, adventure, cultural travel, and family travel

Best Travel Advice: plan and research but leave yourself open to discovery and “getting lost” along the way

Passionate About: authentic cultural experiences, outdoor adventure, my family, reading, sports, music, film and theatre

Most Memorable Travel Experiences: watching lions hunt in Botswana, skiing the Matterhorn in Switzerland, hiking Machu Picchu in Peru, horseback riding in Montana, wine tasting in Argentina, walking into the pyramids in Egypt, eating street food in Vietnam, riding elephants in Thailand
