A Bit about me…
Travel is my passion! I just can’t get enough!
I am a fairly adventurous traveler and although I am experienced in planning all types of travel, I have focused my niche in immersive, experiential travel. I love to travel with small groups and deeply explore the destination. I want to be in the destination long enough to speak a bit of the language, maybe frequent the same cafe for a few days, and feel part of the local life. I love trekking because you get close, not just to the people, but the land and traditions. After spending over 35 years in organizational development in the call center industry and hospital quality management, I truly understand what it takes to go the extra mile, how important my clients are, and how to manage and grow a small business. I am excited to work with you to help you plan your next adventure, traveling anywhere in the world! I can’t wait to meet you, even if it just in a virtual way! Let’s plan your next trip together!
Don’t Just Take My Word For It, Here Is What My Client’s Say…
Small groups and custom itineraries are my specialty!
My groups are typically 10-15 travelers. We aren’t a ‘big bus’ tour and don’t want to be. We don’t just look out the window and drive by the sights. Typically, my tours are custom and private. The advantage is, we can say, ‘stop here, we want to see this’ and we stop and explore, even if it isn’t in the plan. Yes, we have an itinerary, but we also feel it’s important to take advantage of unexpected moments that arise. My tours attract travelers who are flexible and adventurous. A bit of spontaneity is a good thing!
You should know, my fellow travelers are like you, they don’t want a canned tour, they like a sense of freedom on their trip, they understand the value of flexibility in travel, and they love the idea of working with a travel planner who understands and respects their travel values.

I’ve Got You Covered
The world has become a smaller place. Ease of transportation and access to far off places has caused over tourism and with crowds come challenges. I encourage sustainable travel, from filtered water bottles to getting off the beaten path, to volunteerism, there are many things each of us individually can do to preserve our world while we enjoy it.
Accommodations With Character
Don’t want to close your hotel room door and feel like you could be anywhere in the world? I don’t either. I seek out hotels with a bit of character, and a local feel.
Have a bucket list a mile long? So do I. The tours I design bring you to these dreamed of places. Even when you go somewhere more touristed, I will find bucket list things for you to do and see.
