New York, New York Travel Agent
From Art Dealer to Luxury Travel Agent
Art was my first love, but planning travel is my passion, and it draws on everything I have studied and enjoyed in life. My 25 years of travel industry experience have equipped me to handle corporate and leisure travel for individuals as well as meetings and special events.
I am both left- and right-brained, so I enjoy the operational, detail-oriented aspects of being a travel agent as well as the creative and imaginative parts of my job. For example, I can help you articulate the kind of trip you are yearning for, envision all the activities and experiences that will create that dream experience, and then get very detail-oriented to ensure that everything fits together in the most seamless and wonderful way possible.
Similarly, if you are planning a corporate event or a family celebration, I can take charge of all aspects, from finding the perfect setting to negotiating contracts for function space, food and beverage, and sleeping rooms as well as budgeting and making sure everything goes to plan.
Born in Paris, I studied to be an auctioneer at The Louvre and majored in international law and legal studies at the Panthéon-Sorbonne. My first career was as a private art dealer in Paris and the south of France. My life in travel began when I got a job at the New York office of Air France handling corporate travel agency contracts and VIP arrangements. Protravel International was one of the major agencies I worked with. They recruited me; I said ‘yes,’ and I feel like I have found my happily-ever-after.
I enjoy working directly with corporate and leisure travelers equally. They are like two sides of a coin. If you are traveling for business, I try to make you feel as at home as possible while you are on the road. If you are a leisure traveler, I help you create memories that you will cherish forever.
Whatever your reason for traveling, you will find that I am there for you 24/7 to ensure that your trip meets and exceeds your expectations.
