My Background

Growing up, I always daydreamed of traveling to spectacular places, but never had the opportunity to. After spending a few years in finance, I realized something was missing. The early 2000s were a turbulent time in the travel industry, but I decided to take the leap and join the business. My passion for discovery kept me going, and now I couldn’t be more excited to see how travel has changed. I’m always in search of the one-of-a-kind spot, everything from the best pub in London to a hole-in-the-wall gem in Amsterdam. For me, travel is about authenticity – it’s always about taking the road less traveled, discovering treasures along the way, and getting down to the nitty-gritty of a destination. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have these experiences, and as a result I’m able to tailor every trip to my client’s needs, whether it’s a lazy beach vacation or a cultural tour through Europe

While the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman is a huge hotel they have about 800 people on staff and we never waited for a thing. The service was attentive and very friendly. For a big place they had a lot of amenities pool side to make you feel like you were at a high end boutique hotel. They have a great Beach (albeit crowed) and a fantastic Tennis program for kids of all ages. Great for a family trip. A lot to do for everyone.

Made everything easy for an awesome ski trip!

Melissa helped my wife and I put together an awesome trip to Utah for 4 days of stress free skiing and relaxation. We didn't have to worry about one part of our vacation, making it much more rejuvenating!

Fabulous trip, Melissa did an exceptional job planning and coordinating the various modes of transportation and excursions. We had a wonderful, stress free trip. The JK Capri Hotel was a small, boutique hotel, great food and impeccable service. Ravello was breath taking and we plan to return and visit both places again. Paul loved the boat trip, and it was a highlight of the trip. Melissa is patient, kind and professional, she truly understands customer care, and is an expert in the travel industry. Thank you!!!
