Growing up in that melting pot called “The Big Apple”, I dreamed of visiting every country to experience the unique wonderment of their local vibe through language learning, cuisine, music, art, historical/cultural immersion and more.
Thus my wanderlust began! My favorite trips so far have been to Kenya, Spain, Ireland, Portugal, Morocco, Turkey, Mexico, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. There’s still so much more to explore! World travel continues to broaden my experience and global perspective, cultivating my own compassion and understanding for others. This is why it’s become my passion, which I now love to share with others.

While I’m happy to work on any kind of travel itinerary my clients’ heart desires, I’m especially focused on eco-friendly, sustainable wellness travel. Being a city kid from the concrete jungle, I was blessed to spend five summers at Center Church’s Camp Asto Wamah at Columbia Lake, Connecticut where I was taught a deep respect for nature, communal living, personal introspection, and social responsibility. Having caught the bug at an early age, I’ve carried these values with me throughout my life so they’re naturally incorporated into the way I prefer to work, play and travel.
I believe that successful, well-curated travel planning requires a bit of resourcefulness, a keen attention to detail,  some tech-savvy and most of all a commitment to top quality outcomes. I’ve blended my wanderlust with 20- years of project management experience to curate uniquely customized itineraries for the discriminating client. I offer high-touch luxury service so I’ve got your back from Bon Voyage to Welcome Home!
