Why work with me?
I’ve spent the last twenty years in food and beverage, hospitality, travel, sales and pricing. I’ve brought it all together under one roof so that I may share my expertise with you through travel. I carefully craft travel in a culturally respectful way in order to offer you experiences that allow you to deeply treasure and, if desired, contribute to everything the world has to offer.
As a world traveler myself, I've visited 23 countries and have had the enormous pleasure of living in France, Italy and Morocco. So I deeply understand the needs (and wants) of a traveler.
The focus of my travel offerings is on what I love most and what I'm best at doing---fully-customized travel. Some of my personal favorites are warm beaches with calm seas, island hopping on sailing yachts in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Aegean/Ionian seas, delectable culinary and wine vacations in places like Spain, Italy and Portugal and deeply immersive cultural experiences like camel trekking in the Sahara with the Amazigh. I hope you might share your favorite travel experiences with me!
It is my great privilege and pleasure to put my years of business and travel savvy to their best use for you and to make the next travel experience for you, your family or your business more than just a vacation... A dream come true. A memory to share for years to come. A bonding experience. A transformation.
It is also extremely important for me to share with you that, both personally and professionally, I support BLACK LIVES MATTER and am a straight advocate and friend to all members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Please let me know how I can better support you and your businesses. Let’s collaborate!
You’ve found me somehow… Now what?
So often when we start thinking of taking our next vacation, we don’t even know where to begin…even if it’s just for a weekend getaway, much less a bucket list vacation. So I’d like to take away some of the confusion that might surround the planning process and make it as easy as possible for you.
1. I’ll send you my intake form. Or you can start now by completing it here. It’s a travel interest survey that will help me (and maybe even you) to understand what you’re looking for, whether I can provide it for you and if we are a good fit. If we are, then we’ll move on to the next step. If we aren’t, I will likely recommend a trusted travel colleague or partner who can make sure you can realize your vision.
2. We will schedule a 30-minute discovery call where we will go over your intake form together and get into a bit more detail about your hopes for your next travel experience. If we both agree that it sounds like we are a great fit for planning we move on to stage 3. You can schedule that here if you're ready.
3. You sign your Travel Service Fee Agreement and pay your planning fee. Then we are off to the races! I begin my research and planning phase to find the perfect solutions for you and will create an itinerary with various optional details based on your intake and our conversations. Once I deliver the initial itinerary with options, we will dial in your choices until it’s perfect for you.
4. When we have it exactly where you want it, you will formally approve your itinerary and we will sign a secure credit authorization allowing me to pay my suppliers for your itinerary. Depending on the timing of the items in your itinerary, we may need to do more than one as I do not keep your credit data beyond the stated dates of payment in the authorization.
Then all you have to do is have fun preparing and then enjoy your travel experience!
