My love of travel started in the backseat of my parents stationwagon, as we toured the U.S. on family vacations. I was the one who always had the map open in my lap, tracing the route with my fingers and wondering—”where would this road take us?”
I’ve been answering that question for the past 30+ years! For more than three decades, I’ve worked in travel and hospitality, doing everything from acting as a tour guide for Americans in England (where I lived for a year) to managing travel for exacting corporate clients. When I wasn’t booking travel for others, I was planning my own; my favorite adventures are the ones that take me to places just a bit off the beaten path, like Tahiti, Turkey, and Vietnam.
I’ve been around the block—and around the world—so I know exactly how to craft a vacation that wows you. And with travel feeling more complicated than ever, I’ll be here to guide you through it all. From learning the ins and outs of booking airline tickets (just call me the air maestro) to forging relationships with the best guides and hotels around the world, my experience and deep travel expertise means I’m a true, trusted resource for my clients.
My philosophy: Why do the same-old, same-old trip when you can forge a new path? That’s how I encourage you to approach your travels, too, whether that means picking a more underrated destination or adding in some unexpected—yet eye-opening—excursions on your trip. Let me help you discover on your own terms.
