I come from a family of travelers who are all curious, adventurous and always looking ahead to the next amazing experience. My parents both worked for the airlines, and after many years at Air France, my father opened his own travel agency. My introduction to this industry was during my summer breaks from school when I helped in the office, filing brochures and delivering tickets back in the day when they were paper!

I spent my junior year of college in France and when I came back, I considered the foreign service or teaching. Those plans did not quite materialize and I was back in my father’s office before I knew it.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my career in the travel industry ever since then, and I am so grateful for the opportunities it has afforded me to not only travel, but to learn and meet people from all walks of life. River cruising is my favorite way to see the world because it provides a convenient way to visit so many cities and smaller towns without the logistical challenges of a land only itinerary. That being said, I also love coordinating complex multi-city experiences for my clients. I excel at organizing all the moving parts, from choosing the perfect hotels to planning fantastic tours and ensuring seamless transitions between destinations.

I consider travel a form of diplomacy that allows for meaningful connections that defy distance as well as cultural, political and economic differences. Our world is full of incredible treasures awaiting our discovery and travel endlessly encourages us to explore it with childlike wonder. As Robert Louis Stevenson once wrote, “The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”

I look forward to helping you find happiness and wonder through travel.
