I have a bachelor’s degree in Art Studio with an emphasis on Photography and Printmaking as well as extensive Interior Design experience. That led me to my love of seeing the beauty in designing and successfully renovating, managing and selling income producing properties. My number one job is being a mom to my two amazing children – my 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son. I am a New Englander hailing from the Boston area and now living in sunny Charleston, South Carolina. I am a second-generation Italian – my grandfather immigrated through Ellis Island from Sicily! Growing up in an Italian family I have always had a great love for food, community and culture. I adore traveling with my husband and children all over the world and experiencing new cultures, interesting food, and amazing adventures.
I have been unbelievably fortunate to have traveled all over the world to many different countries and almost every continent! Some of my favorite places include England, Scotland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Denmark. I have also visited Japan, New Zealand and Australia. My diverse travels have molded me into the experienced traveler I am today. Travel has made me so incredibly appreciative of the world around me. Some of my most favorite experiences have been driving Ferraris through Tuscany, having a multi-course champagne tasting during a private dinner in the Veuve Clicquot cellars in France and flying through the Milford Sound fjords in New Zealand and seeing the turquoise glacier pools in the mountains. Other favorite luxury adventures include hearing the chilling sounds of a bagpipe band materializing out of the dark evening at Hopetoun House in Scotland which was one of the filming locations in the hit Starz series Outlander and seeing the Phantom of the Opera live in the round at the Opera House in Paris. I have a passion for travel and love to try new things and visit new places – it’s always so exciting for me to touch down in a new location and hit the ground running to see the sights and taste the food wherever I go.
I love my job because I am able to help travelers make memories. I treasure the relationships created while designing travel; I enjoy listening to their wants and creating an amazing experience. It’s connecting with someone and truly understanding how to create the perfect meaningful experience.
