I am a Chicago native and University of Iowa alumni, who has been traveling extensively, on and off, for the past fifteen years. Through a study abroad program to Sydney, Australia, I discovered a true passion (or borderline obsession) for traveling.
While planning my flight to Australia I discovered that I could stop in Fiji on the way there and New Zealand on the return. I didn’t know much about either of these countries other then I really wanted to go. Fiji was the first in many adventures I would take on my own.
After graduation, I backpacked Europe, Iceland and Africa before settling into my first career as a sales and marketing consultant for an Australian owned Travel Agency. My next career working for a marketing agency brought me to Austin, TX where I met my husband. After getting engaged we decided to throw our belongings in storage and head south to Mexico on a road trip. We spent 8 months traveling in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama and Belize. Driving our car gave us freedom to come and go as we pleased and see places not easily reached by plane or bus. It was also a good test to make sure we wanted to see our engagement through!
With 31 countries under my belt (our honeymoon to Ecuador and The Galapagos was #31), I’m always thinking about the next adventure for myself and my clients. Years of both business and leisure travel booking experience have given me the ability to handle any type of traveler. I guarantee a speedy response time, meticulous research and outstanding customer service before, during and after your trip. Let me handle the details and legwork, so you can relax and enjoy traveling!
Little Corn Island, Nicaragua. The island had no motor vehicles, beautiful beaches, wonderful people and delicious lobster dishes for $6.00. Although not unknown, I felt like I had discovered a place that most people had never heard of or been to.
