I travel, therefore I am ... full circle journey back to my roots! I was an International Studies/Political Economy major at The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia where I studied Japanese in addition to several years of French. I was an exchange student in high school, participated in the Model UN, took my college junior year abroad studying at the Sorbonne, lived a 10 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and visited Norway and the Netherlands. I met my Juilliard-educated former husband in Jamaica, and we honeymooned in Japan. I dreamt of working in the foreign service or anywhere abroad upon graduation from college. Instead, my transition year at Nordstrom where I fully embraced the deep dedication to customer service ended up lasting 7 years, in a place where I say I was born and raised in my career in sales and service. Working at Nordstrom has influenced everything I have done professionally ever since.

It took my 2nd daughter, Catja, to reignite my dreams of travel and adventure which I put on hold so I could raise my four fabulous children as a single working mom. She spent her own junior year abroad in London and upon her college graduation went back for her Fulbright year at the University of Roehampton. I took my youngest, Mikka to visit her sister over the holidays so she could spend her New Year's birthday both in London (NY's Eve) and Paris (NY's Day)! Taking a break from her residency at Boston Medical, my firstborn Alaia and my son, Viggo, from his mechanical engineering studies at Virginia Tech traveled to the United Kingdom as well, and now the travel bug has been wholeheartedly caught and enthusiastically embraced by all my children! Someday, I would love to take all of them back to the Philippines where I was born and to Spain where their del Prado family is from, and Denmark where their Christensen great grandfather sailed from on the Danish Merchant Marine!

As a luxury travel advisor, giving the experiences of travel to my children, my family and friends, and creating the very best vacation adventures for my clients making their dreams of travel come true is a love language all its own!
