As a Virtuoso Travel Advisor my goal is delivering customized travel experiences that create unforgettable memories for my clients. Whether it’s an African safari, a trek to Machu Picchu or just a weekend getaway, my desire is to fully understand my clients’ wishes and expectations so I can deliver the most impactful travel experiences.

Planning unforgettable experiences goes beyond making reservations and arranging logistics. By leveraging my experience as a seasoned traveler and Virtuoso Advisor,  I frequently suggest experiences my clients may not have previously considered. There is no greater joy than listening to clients excitedly tell me about their travel adventure stories.

My experience with the hospitality industry began early, when I helped my family run their own restaurants. This experience was enhanced by majoring in Hotel and Restaurant Management, where I gained further appreciation for the industry and an uncompromising client focus.

Over my thirty plus years in the industry, I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Australia, Africa, the South Pacific, India, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and the United States. The relationships I have cultivated with Virtuoso travel partners worldwide are critical to the luxury travel planning I specialize in, including active adventures, luxury cruises, guided tours and fully customized itineraries. Several of the certifications I’ve acquired during my years as a Virtuoso Travel Advisor, include :

  • Certified African Travel Specialist, Adventure Travel, Tauck Specialist, Disney College of Knowledge Graduate, Family Travel Specialist, Spa Specialist

The first step to an adventure where memories are made is to stop by for a consultation. We will work together to build the perfect itinerary to help you cross that unique item off your bucket list, recharge your batteries, and get in touch with your inner traveler.
