Travel consulting is in my blood- I come from a family of travelers who are all curious, adventurous and always looking ahead to the next amazing experience abroad. My parents both worked for the airlines, and after many years at Air France, my father opened his own travel agency. My first foray into this industry came through helping him during school breaks by filing brochures or hand delivering tickets- yes, paper tickets! I spent a year studying abroad in France during college, which inspired me to consider entering the foreign service, either through teaching or translation.

When I returned from Europe, all I could think about was how to get back. I helped my faither in his office while I worked on my plans, and the rest is history. 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 and 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 so many other things- through travel.
