Stemming from a lifelong curiosity and passion for the world, I started my career in the travel industry after graduating from college over 24 years ago.
I am continuously inspired through my travels and value immersive experiences.
Ecuador & The Galapagos Islands: My most recent favorite travel experience was taking a mother/daughter trip for my daughter’s high school graduation present to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Experiencing the Galapagos variety of unique plants and animals found nowhere else in the world was like none other. Understanding the delicate ecosystem and all of the conservation efforts was humbling. The highlight of Galapagos was snorkeling in Darwin Bay on San Cristobal Island. We were surrounded by numerous sea lions, sea turtles, and manta rays and repeatedly experienced schools of fish circling us. It was magical. We also were fortunate to travel through the Andes Mountains. We hiked one of the most beautiful trails I’ve experienced to this day, Sendero de las Isla in Papallacta, Ecuador. Visiting the Amazon Rainforest was the grand finale.
Costa Rica: I have a heart for Costa Rica, its biodiversity, and the kind-hearted people. As a family, we enjoyed exploring the flora and fauna of the Tortuguero Rainforest, as well as experiencing the jungle, Arenal Volcano, and the Tabacon Thermal Hot Springs. It was a family favorite vacation offering relaxation, education, and adventure.
Rome, Italy: I adored roaming the streets and getting lost, taking in the unique scenery around every corner, eating exceptional Italian cuisine, and exploring and appreciating a city that felt like a living museum.
Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Tetons National Park are just a few of my favorite National Park experiences.
From start to finish, I enjoy getting to know my clients. To understand what they seek to experience and take away from their vacations. To share in the excitement of planning while creating the perfect stress-free itinerary. My ultimate goal is to have my clients return home with a greater cultural understanding, new experiences, and memories that will last a lifetime.
