My Background

Liana has been planning itineraries and traveling the world for as long as she can remember. What started as an unlikely obsession with luxury hotels when she was just a teenager, grew into a true passion for the travel industry that has continued in earnest throughout her entire personal and professional life. Liana completed a masters degree in hospitality management from Cornell University, and has had a 10 year career working in luxury hotels in New York City, most recently with Rosewood Hotel Group and Four Seasons. Liana decided in 2018 to make the leap and begin booking travel full time in order to put her lifelong knowledge and passion for travel to work for her clients.

Liana has traveled most extensively through the Caribbean (favorite island: Virgin Gorda) and Europe (favorite city: Vienna) but has visited over 35 countries and continues to discover new destinations every year. When she is not traveling, researching, or planning itineraries, Liana loves spending time at home in her West Village, NYC apartment. She is an avid reader, an animal lover, a perpetual student of art, history and architecture, and an advocate for small, sustainable farming practices, such as those practiced by her family’s farm in the Hudson Valley.
