I was born in Europe and have been an avid traveler my entire life. Since I’ve always enjoyed the planning of trips (the more interesting and intricate, the better), I decided to turn my avocation into a full-fledged career as a travel advisor. I’m a good listener and know how to ask the right questions, so I’m able to design trips that mesh well with a client’s particular desires and “travel personality.” It’s so rewarding when a client returns from a vacation raving about the special experiences (riding elephants in Thailand, a private after-hours visit to the Vatican) I was able to provide. My area of expertise: luxury cruises to Europe, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and French Polynesia. I’ve also designed customized honeymoons in Hawaii and French Polynesia. Since I plan my personal trips around food and wine, I’m adept at creating interesting food-and-wine-themed tours for clients on their vacations. And because I’m a skier – I especially love skiing in New England, the Western U.S. and European Alps – I’m a wealth of information about the best ski resorts in those destinations. I also recently became a Tauck Academy Certified Agent by participating in an intensive six-day training program in the northwest United States and Canada. Every once in a while, travel plans go awry – such as a cancelled flight due to weather. Should that happen, you can count on me to look for solutions and get your vacation back on track. My goal: to become your lifelong trusted travel advisor.
