And a little bit more about me… I’m a New York transplant, now living in sunny San Diego. I’ve traveled to 34 countries and counting. I’m a hotel junkie and love visiting new boutique properties around the world. In past lives, I’ve worked in Finance, Tech and Non-Profit. My husband and I both went to Wake Forest University, and I have my MBA from the Darden Graduate School of Business at UVA. My favorite travel memories include: celebrating my honeymoon on a private beach in Fiji, hiking to the sun gate of Machu Picchu with my family and seeing baby elephants on safari in Tanzania. While I can do almost anything for my clients when it comes to travel, I have a few areas of focus and expertise: Adventure, Wellness and Celebration travel. I am also passionate about sustainability and conservation and love to partner with travel companies (and clients!) who practice and incorporate these same principles into their operations and experiences.

When I’m not traveling the world or working on client itineraries, you can find me nose deep in a good book, dining out at San Diego’s many restaurants, working out at my local barre studio, or playing with my pug puppy, Deacon.

I believe that travel changes us at the deepest level – it challenges our perception of the world and it re-centers our priorities in life. As a professional travel advisor, my goal is to curate travel experiences that go beyond the expected and open your eyes to the wonder of the world that’s all around you.

Travel has always been my top priority and as a travel specialist, I can’t wait to share my passion with you.
