As a Travel Adviser I offer concierge travel planning services to luxury leisure and corporate clients and help make the travel planning process enjoyable and stress free. Departure Lounge, one of America’s most innovative travel agencies, is a member of the exclusive Virtuoso luxury travel network, comprising the best travel partners worldwide that give my travel clients special VIP treatment and perks.
A recent empty nester, I live in Charleston, SC with my husband and our two dogs, while our daughter is living her best college life at NYU. Before working with Departure Lounge, I spent much of my professional life traveling all over the world. I have lived in 8 states and have travelled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Israel, and Costa Rica. I have also spent months at a time exploring Iceland, South Africa, Hawaii, and Japan.
Throughout my travels I have been able to gather resources and make local connections to add first-hand knowledge to your vacation and travel planning.
I love spending as much time as I can exploring a destination and getting to know the local culture. In 2007 I traveled across the U.S. and Canada for four months in an RV with my mother and then toddler, visiting 49 states and Vancouver Island. In 2011 my family and I spent three months exploring Japan followed by another three months in Hawaii. In 2017, I traveled on my own for six months throughout South Africa and Lesotho.
