I was a college biology professor. I have always loved wildlife and spending time in nature whether teaching or traveling.
My favorite travel experiences combine local culture, spending time outdoors and observing wildlife. My kids and I have visited the Tiger Reserves in India, swum with Whale Sharks in Mexico, and hung out with kangaroos on the beach in Australia. We have been lucky to experience many amazing outdoor activities in our travels including hikes in Norway, Nepal, and a winter hike through the snow to a frozen waterfall in Slovenia. We also enjoy taking cooking classes and meeting local artists when we travel.
Connecting with families and helping them craft their dream vacations is one of my favorite parts of this job. I love using my knowledge and passion for travel to plan one-of-a-kind experiences. Family travel provides many opportunities to create special memories that last a lifetime, and I am grateful to play a role in creating those experiences.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
Our offices are closed for the holiday. We will respond to your request on Monday, November 28th. If you are a Ciao Bambino client experiencing an emergency while traveling, please leave a voicemail on
