Some of my earliest memories include those of the gifts and trinkets my grandmother would bring back from her travels around the world. She would tell me stories of exotic, far-away places that captivated my heart and imagination. In my mind’s eye, I can see my 4-year-old self promising her future self, “When I grow up, I’m going to travel the world, just like my grandma.”

When I was in high school, I got the opportunity to travel abroad for the first time as an exchange student. I lived in a small village in central Spain with an amazing group of people who – still to this day – I consider my second family. It was truly a life changing experience, the catalyst to a life filled with international adventures, and one of the many reasons I’m a travel advisor today.

Traveling changed my life. I want to help make it change yours!

By combining my love of travel and my passion for detail and service, I have discovered my sole purpose: to encourage your curiosity about the world and to ensure that your time away is PERFECT!

Perfect is a tall order, but I know how incredibly important it is to spend your time away well. Rest assured that your precious time is safe in my hands. I understand how to make every moment count…because it does!
