I’m originally from Central Wisconsin, where I grew up on the family farm and then graduated from college in Madison/Milwaukee. All through college, I had this burning desire to travel. My first flight was to Europe in 1986 and then I was hooked. I spent a year abroad – 11 months longer than what I had planned! When I returned, I took a part time job at a travel agency while I was still going to school and waitressing. The travel agency job won out- that was 20 years ago. Lake Forest Travel has been my work home for the past 15 years and I find it so exciting to help my long time clients figure out what destination they should explore next!
My travel passions are skiing and warm beaches- very different! Since my husband is a ski fanatic, he has pushed my daughter and I to ski every year so I am extremely familiar with almost all the top ski destinations in the US. My most recent ski adventures have been in Breckenridge, Deer Valley, Jacksonhole and Vail… – all amazing and very different for every level of skier.
I am sure my love for warm beach vacations comes from the fact that is the opposite of where I grew up…- far cry from the farm land in central Wisconsin. I recently explored Nevis, next to St Kitts in the Caribbean for five days, and before that, enjoyed time in Jamaica as well as the Club Med Sandpiper resort in Florida.
