As Miriam Beard once said, “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” Like Miriam, I strongly believe in the profound impact that travel can have in people’s lives. As your trusted travel consultant, I seek to inspire and help you to see the world with an open mind and an open heart through transformative travel. My current specialties include cultural travel in Europe and luxury cruising, and I have a keen interest in authentic experiences and sustainable travel.
My own adventures have taken me to incredible places in Spain, Italy, Greece, Ireland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Guatemala, Aruba and the Caribbean, and my experience continues to grow as I explore new destinations as often as possible. I studied International Affairs and Geography at the George Washington University and my knowledge constantly grows alongside the ever-changing travel industry. I currently serve on the official Advisory Committee for Signature Travel Network Embark, a community focused on new-to-industry professionals, as well as the Embark Steering Committee where I serve as the Blog Manager. I love collaborating and learning from my wonderful Connoisseur colleagues and other Signature travel consultants. Whether it be a local getaway or a leisurely luxury cruise, your dream honeymoon in Europe or a once in a lifetime safari adventure in Africa, I am ready and excited to help you plan and customize your next travel experience!
