My Story
I’m a client-turned-employee! After 20+ years of leading business operations in other industries, I am thrilled that my passion for travel has led me here. As a process engineer turned luxury travel designer, I can now apply my attention to detail to vacation planning and bring meaningful outcomes for my clients. I consider myself absolutely fortunate to be bringing their vacation dreams to life!

My Style of Travel
Ultimately, I’m in search of an experience—a feeling of connection to the people, history, and place. That’s what is fulfilling to me. Then throw in a few adventures, for sure! I wouldn’t call myself an adrenaline junkie, but I love a good thrill that involves something you can’t do just anywhere, like zip-lining in Thailand’s only rainforest and seeing wild gibbons.

Favorite Destinations
Tasmania, Australia: I would repeat every single moment of that trip in a heartbeat. Everything in Tasmania is so stunning, from the little towns of happy Tassies and the purest food I’ve ever tasted, to the snowy mountains with pristine rivers and loads and loads of wildlife. I’m in love with the wombats and wallabies!

The Cook Islands: These South Pacific islands are a total change of pace from the Caribbean, yet so familiar and comfortable!

When I’m Not Traveling, I…
Am on the water with my husband: on a boat just about anywhere, or at our floating house in Norris Lake, Tennessee. If I’m not on the water, I’m most certainly working on a project around the house—always looking for the next renovation and making our home a comfortable place for hosting friends and family! And no matter what we’re doing, our 4-legged kids are by our sides.
