Providing you the comfort to travel confidently

I am a traveler. I have been a traveler my whole life. It's in my blood.

Read a magazine interview about how I turned my childhood love of travel into a career here  or See my feature in Virtuoso Traveler magazine here.


     A few years ago, my husband and I, with our two young children, traveled for a year all over Europe. We took the kids out of school and toured 22 countries. Recently I've turned the corner on seeing 67 countries. I've gone to cooking school in Rome and Provence, swum with the sharks and rays in Tahiti, explored the ruins of Machu Pichu, and confronted the Oracle at Delphi. 

As a toddler, I camped with my family in the Boundary Waters Wilderness. When I was six years old, my family left Minnesota in a Volkswagen pop-top camper and drove through Central America all the way to Argentina and Brazil. And then all over Europe and Africa. We were gone a year and a half!

 My experience running a successful design business, combined with my Communications degree from Northwestern (with a concentration in the Medill School of Journalism), makes me a natural in my ability to assess my client's specific wishes and needs and craft a desirable itinerary.

Travel, I think, should be more than just seeing new places. It should be an education. It should be exhilarating. And it should be unforgettable.

I provide customized, world class, and thoughtful travel services to my clients, imparting on them the comfort to travel confidently and the inspiration to see the world through travel experiences that create special life memories.

 I will combine my creativity, inquisitive nature, common sense, and lifelong love of travel with your vision of an unforgettable trip, and you will be on your way to collecting memories.
