Raised in California, I was working in the restaurant management side and decided I wanted a different career path. I started working with Protravel in 2005 located in Rancho Bernardo as an administrative assistant while learning about the world and travel industry. I realized I had a passion for travel and assisting people arrange their perfect trip that I decided to stay in the industry. 13 years later my business partner Maureen Rouleau and I decided to open our own office called Grand Journeys.
