Although I have had careers in social work, office management, and co-owning a home inspection business, my true passion for travel began during high school when I joined a school trip to Italy, Greece, and Turkey. In college I lived in Florence, Italy for a semester followed by backpacking all over Europe. What I loved most about traveling was the authenticity of the locations that I got to experience, which led to my never-ending desire to experience all kinds of regions and cultures.
I love traveling to new places and experiencing new cultures rather than going back multiple times to the same place. Nothing is as fulfilling to me as experiencing things I cannot experience or see at home.
When I plan a trip, I like to be very thorough, whether the time is planned or free flowing. I find that having everything delicately taken care of ahead of time creates a stress-free vacation, leaving all the time to absorb the experiences. When you plan with me, you will know that everything is diligently taken care of so you can enjoy a carefree vacation.
