My Background

As an avid food, wine and cultural travel enthusiast, I am blessed to have globetrotted throughout the United States, Caribbean and European ports of call over the past three decades. Armed with a passion to learn how the locals live, I love meeting regional residents to discover their special traditions, epicurean influences and historical treasures. I obsess over finding the most unique "best-in-market" experiences, creating once-in-a-lifetime memories for my family and clients. It’s ALL part of the magic -- the indigenous art, music, topography, archaeology and stories passed down through the ages that have become a part of my own tapestry!

A former executive for Marriott, Hilton and Bluegreen Resorts, I enjoyed marketing and serving over 500,000 Vacation Club owners to help make their "dreams come true" every year on vacation. As a proud graduate of Florida State University (GO 'NOLES!), I became a huge believer through the years in the educational value of introducing families and couples to new and different ways of life. And, as a wife and mother of a teenage daughter, I am seeing first-hand the rejuvenating relationship benefits of “unplugging” from our distraction-addicted society to genuinely connect with our family, our friends and ourselves during our adventures.

Traveling the world extensively for business and pleasure, I studied what makes vacations GREAT and worked hard to thoroughly document and research my trips, anticipating the best way to authentically absorb a particular region. I have learned the delicate balance of copious, detailed planning, yet leaving plenty of down time for in-the-moment spontaneity. As I periodically reread my plethora of travel journals and blog posts, I am reenergized by my discoveries.

Today, I specialize in sending travelers on exciting wine and food adventures around the world via cultural vineyard excursions and specialty cruise voyages. I work with Virtuoso's fantastic destination experts, resourceful suppliers and talented CSB Travel colleagues to design extraordinary itineraries with sought-after hotels, top-reviewed restaurants and sightseeing jewels. We also draw inspiration from our many well-traveled clients who provide us invaluable feedback on the exclusive journeys that we have curated on their behalf.

An active golfer, snow skier, boater and spa-goer (I have to work off the great food and wine somehow), I'm fortunate to have seen some of the most awe-inspiring vistas on the planet. There's nothing more fulfilling to me than being able to share these top-drawer experiences with others seeking to expand their horizons through transformational travel. I look forward to drawing on a lifetime of personal and professional travels to create an amazing memory-filled vacation for you!
