I’ve always loved traveling and sharing my experiences with friends. How fortunate I am to have a career that dovetails with my passion! Creating customized itineraries for people who truly want to explore the world and understand its people and cultures is extremely rewarding for me. I make it a point to really <i>listen</i> to my clients, to understand the “why” for their trip. Since I’ve traveled extensively (to date: 50 countries and 47 states), I can leverage my destination knowledge and strong industry relationships to design detailed itineraries full of rich experiences. Anything’s possible – from a Bar Mitzvah in an Alaskan Tlingit Indian Spirit House to special access to the Vasari Corridor in Florence. I’ve arranged it all. While I’m well-versed in all areas of the globe, I have particular expertise in travel to Africa and Italy. I’m also adept at planning multi-generational trips [and those revolving around art history and the culinary arts, two special interests of mine]. It’s extremely important to me that I deliver a high level of customer service. To do so, I’ve assembled a team of talented travel advisors – all with great experience and contacts – to assist me. Thus my clients, and the many friends that they refer to me, can expect personalized and responsive service 24/7. I’m very involved in the travel industry. I participate in several advisory boards and was honored to be nominated twice as one of five Most Admired Travel Advisors within Virtuoso. Whether you’re looking to expand your horizons with a visit to a new-to-you continent or you’re a seasoned traveler wanting to push the envelope and explore off-the-beaten-path destinations, I enthusiastically look forward to working with you.
