Twenty five years ago I changed careers from higher education to working in the travel industry as a professional travel advisor - I have never looked back! Ever since I can remember I always had a love for travel and adventure. I was able to incorporate a way to blend this love into a professional career.
My ultimate goal is to create detailed and customized travel experiences for my clients I truly am a Virtuoso and do "orchestrate dreams." Planning a typical "vacation" simply will not do! By creating this "experience" for my clients, I enable them to experience an impactful journey of a lifetime.
Travel has shaped my world. I provide a lifetime of experiences and expertise to the client. While the "world is my oyster," Italy is one of my passions. I have lived in Italy for many years -specifically in Rome and Venice. I understand the history and culture that is Italy. I continue to visit every May and Italy will always be my passion. I speak the language fluently and am of Italian descent.
My second passion are my travels to Africa - from Botswana, to South Africa to the Serengeti Plains and Beyond! I love animals and am devoted to wildlife conservancy and giving back to the native peoples of this glorious and mysterious continent. My travels have taken me to Africa many times and I have a unique understanding of the camps and lodges.
Travel + Leisure Magazine has also awarded me the distinction of being one of their "A List Travel Professionals." This designation has been awarded to me for the past ten years. I am honored to be one of the Top 125 Travel Consultants in the Nation.
I have been fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world and have experienced many cultures. My most memorable experiences include Australia, New Zealand, the majority of African countries,The Caribbean, South America, North America, and of course extensively throughout Europe. I am blessed with a career that I love and have never lost the passion or zest for being a part of this wonderful profession. It is my intent to bring this love and passion to every trip that I plan.
Through the years I have developed a strong network of Virtuoso partners including vendors and hoteliers that I now call "friends." These people are a part of my "travel family." This travel network, combined with my lifetime of experience traveling the world makes me a valuable asset to my clients.
Let me create your next dream!
