“The love of travel is a mix of anticipation, experience, and looking forward to the next adventure.”
It’s been said, travel is 1/3 anticipation and planning, 1/3 actually traveling, and 1/3 looking forward to returning home. For me, the last 1/3 has always been looking forward to the next adventure or returning to the destination I have just come from.
My grandmothers and my mother taught me to seek out opportunity no matter where you are, from seeing a show at a local playhouse to making a homemade picnic from the farm stand. This life lesson has shaped the way I view my surroundings, the way I travel and actually, the person I am today. It gave me an open mind to allow the world to educate me, teaching me gratitude and understanding.
I wholeheartedly believe research is the foundation to an incredible and highly successful travel experience. I love fitting a custom itinerary together like a puzzle. When planning a vacation, your passion becomes my passion. I will search extensively to find the most efficient route, the most experienced guide, the most authentic adventures and the most innovative luxury travel experience possible.
When it comes to travel types, I’m happy to plan any and everything for my clients. Read below for a few of my favorite personal experiences that I can’t wait to tell you more about!

My travel planning specialties:
Traveling with family and planning a family journey is extremely rewarding. Serving in my past on the junior social staff at the Cloister on Sea Island, working as a nanny and as a labor and delivery nurse has enriched my life and my understanding of family. Now, as the mother of two, I am privileged to see the world through their eyes.
When I work with families I listen to their unique needs and expectations and most importantly, their priorities. If the priority is to cater to the children, that is exactly what we will do. If the family prefers a more balanced approach, this is accomplished. It is my job to make sure each and every family member is extremely happy, no matter how big or small.
It is my pleasure to thoughtfully plan vacations for couples, whether it be a romantic getaway, an anniversary celebration, your honeymoon or simply a trip for just the two of you. Having taken many treasured getaways of my own to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, US major cities, Morocco, Vietnam and Europe, I have the firsthand knowledge it takes to properly turn your dreams into reality that will far exceed your wildest imagination. Imagine every detail looked after, from arranging lunch on a private island to private yoga for two, so all you have to do is enjoy each other and your time together.
I am also here for group travel, willing and able to provide leadership services and fully escorted travel services. Whether it’s a family reunion cruise, a group bike tour, a girls shopping trip to Italy, or anything in between, I can assist in organizing a group and coordinating all of your group’s needs.
I will leave you with the saying, Happiness is pretty simple :
Someone to Love
Something to Do
Something to Look Forward To
Let’s start planning your next adventure and give you something to look forward to! I can’t wait to hear from you.
