My lifelong love of travel began during my first international trip to Europe as a high school student. I was captivated by the majestic cities and charming towns of France, Monaco, and Italy. Between the different cultures, architecture, history, people, and food, this trip sparked my passion for travel and inspired me to continue exploring the world.
Planning trips for myself, friends, and family has always been one of my greatest personal joys. My husband and I have traveled extensively to destinations throughout Europe, French Polynesia, the Caribbean, and the United States. Some of my most memorable travel moments include exploring the island of Capri by land and sea, enjoying a southern Italian cooking demonstration and lunch on a local family’s terrace in the hills of Ravello, cruising along the Danube River through Austria’s Wachau Valley, and watching the sunset from an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora.
I decided to turn my passion for travel into a career after more than 12 years in tax and data analytics. The strong attention to detail required throughout my professional career translates well to planning seamless travel for my clients. My goal is to create lifelong memories by crafting itineraries tailored to each client’s unique travel interests. My company Dolce Vita Travel, an independent affiliate of Avenue Two Travel, a Virtuoso member, has access to a deep network of relationships around the world to produce exceptional experiences.
While I enjoy planning travel across a wide variety of destinations, I specialize in luxury travel within Europe. My primary areas of expertise include hotels, culinary tourism, cultural exploration, ocean cruising, and river cruising. From our initial consultation to your return home, I’ll be within reach to ensure peace of mind throughout every step of your journey!
