My passion for travel began with the family trips I’ve taken from the Florida Keys to boat trips down the Canal du Midi in the heart of France. I’ve visited 48 of the 50 states and over 11 countries, but I’m dying to visit more. I spent a year traveling the country prior to getting married and in 2018 alone, I’ve visited two countries and taken several trips here in the U.S. Needless to say, I love traveling. Experiencing new cultures and ways of life and sometimes, just plain relaxing make up the top reasons to travel for me.
I have spent close to 24 years in the marketing industry working on both the client and agency side. Some of that time was spent living in Seattle, WA and then San Diego, CA before I found a home in Elmhurst, Illinois.
I’m looking forward to working with my clients to build their perfect vacation getaway. Whether it’s a romantic time with a partner, a girl’s trip, spring break with the family, a European vacation or an adventure trip, my goal is to listen to my client and deliver above and beyond their expectations.
A love for travel began with my first trip to Italy, where my eyes were opened to the beauty and excitement the world has to offer. Ever since, I've had a passion for designing travel experiences that create beautiful memories and energize the soul. The best way to accomplish that is by understanding the core of what type of experience you are looking for and being open to what new experiences can do to enrich your life. Whether it's a trip to a new country, the beach or the mountains, I've found that each experience awakens my soul and brings me to a place of appreciation and gratitude. Upon return, I am refreshed, energized and looking forward to the future.
As a mother of all boys, I love designing a vacation that strikes a balance between adventure, relaxation and quality time that results in memories that will be shared for years to come. I look forward to learning more about you and helping design your next memorable vacation!
