Loree Anne Paradise
I’m Loree Anne Paradise, an Epperly Luxury Travel Consultant and new mother. With a newborn at home, I understand how easy it is to be overwhelmed by the ebbs and flows of life’s daily challenges and routines. My philosophy encompasses the belief that everyone deserves a break from the “routine chaos” of daily life. Whether it be job responsibilities, the uncertainty of life’s next step or a packed schedule of kids’ extracurricular activities, the restorative nature of travel can introduce new experiences that open our eyes and help find a renewed sense of meaning.
My interest in travel sparked at a young age when my father planned “surprise trips” multiple times a year for my family. My sister and I would be told what to pack and anxiously held our breath as our minivan pulled out of the driveway. Our dad would tell us the location once we had reached the stop sign at the end of our street, and I have no doubt our excited yells could be heard throughout our neighborhood.
I love travel because I believe it helps to rediscover the people we strive to be. On a trip to Napa a few years ago, my husband and I woke up in our hotel during the middle of the night to the smell of fire. More specifically, what we smelled were the horrific Napa Wildfires of 2017. Fifteen minutes later, we met complete strangers in the parking lot of our hotel who graciously let us catch a ride in order to move south of the flames. It was a moment of complete chaos, but it brought us closer together and helped us prepare for future moments of stress and anxiety (also known as sleepless nights with a 32-week preemie infant). Not only did we taste incredible wine and see spectacular views of Northern California, but we learned how to better communicate and work together in a difficult situation — double win!
As a Type A lover all things logistical and planning, do not hesitate to give me a call to plan your next getaway! I look forward to working with you.
