I was raised in Central Illinois and attended Ripon College in Wisconsin. Currently, I reside in Chicago.
I inherited my love of travel from my parents. Both are world travelers and they wanted to share that passion with my brother and me.
My first memorable trip was to Ericeira Portugal. We stayed for 3 months and everything about the trip was fabulous. My mother still remembers finding me on the phone reconfirming our flights on TWA from St Louis to Lisbon. I was 6! She said “I think you will work in travel someday”.
My travel career has come full circle. I have owned an agency, worked as a Director of Leisure Sales for two Virtuoso hotels, and in 2012, I transitioned back to the agency side.
I love matching people with places. Memorable travel experiences are built from listening to your clients and understanding their needs. Personalized service is key. I love creating long lasting memories for my clients.
On my radar for 2014 — New Zealand, Belgium, Chile and Argentina.
