My Background

I have been lucky enough to have been in the travel business for over 31 years. I have met some amazing clients and am now lucky to call them my friends. I love what I do and cannot wait to make your trip one you will never forget. Being a part of Virtuoso allows me to offer you some amazing access and perks.

My Specialties and Favorite Destinations: I enjoy planning weddings, river cruises, and multigenerational trips. (I recently planned a trip to Hawaii for a family of 55!) I love Europe, and I’m a huge fan of the beach, especially those in Fiji, Jamaica, and the Turks & Caicos.

My Favorite Travel Experiences: I love music festivals and adventure travel. I’m a fly-by-the-night type of traveler, which has led me around the world, from attending The Masters tournament in Georgia to sipping kava with the locals in Fiji.

Where to Next: I plan on doing another river cruise in Europe.

My wife and I had to plan last minute travel for personal reasons, and airline seats were very hard to find.  Marisa helped us find solutions very quickly, at a fraction of the cost we would have paid on our own.  She did this with incredibly friendly and efficient service.  Her experience, courtesy and insight are outstanding.  Moreover, this is simply Marisa-as-usual.  We recommend her to anyone, and in the strongest terms..

All went exactly as planned!

As always Marisa hit it out of the park for us! The group that did the tour of the Vatican and our guide Frederica was excellent! All the tickets and tours were as promised and we had no issues at all. Our apartment in Positano was delightful and the folk who managed it there were great. For example, they knew we were celebrating our anniversary and brought some Champaign and fruit as we checked in! Just the way to plan a trip and have it executed! Thanks!

Our second trip to Ireland arranged by Marisa was awesome. Both times the extra perks and individual care were excellent. Marisa searched for the best deals and all her suggestions were great. We will never take another major trip without using Marisa to plan it. Excellent service and always cheerful responses!
