Beverly Hills, California Travel Agent
Well-Traveled, Expert Travel Advisor
Born in India, raised in Hong Kong and Singapore, and educated at Tulane University in New Orleans, I had seen a lot of the world even before becoming a travel agent. I continue to expand my horizons every year, and have traveled to almost every continent and dozens of countries. My personal travel experience and deep understanding of the travel industry enable me to create seamless journeys, tailored to your personal style and preferences.
After graduating college with a degree in finance, I spent four years as an equity salesperson with Goldman Sachs. However, my real love has always been travel and tourism, so when I was offered the chance to join Protravel International in its London office, I jumped at the opportunity, later returning to the U.S.
My experience in the fast-paced and demanding world of Wall Street taught me to be attentive to the needs of my clients and to respond in the most efficient and cost-effective ways while maintaining high standards of quality and excellence. It also taught me the value of a good travel agent who can handle all the details of the trip so their travelers can focus on getting their business done or enjoying their vacation.
I enjoy planning both corporate and leisure travel, and often handle both for the same clients. On any given day, I might be planning a last-minute business trip for a Wall Street mogul, making travel arrangements for a Hollywood production team, or creating a personalized itinerary in New Zealand for a family or a honeymoon couple.
I am very detail-oriented and organized, but more importantly, I take the time to understand your unique point of view so that in addition to providing what you request, I can offer creative suggestions to make your travels even more memorable.
I know what a great feeling it is to be treated as a VIP with privileged access, so I try to make this happen wherever possible. At many top hotels around the world, my clients are greeted by name and offered VIP treatment that includes value-added extras such as free breakfast and Wi-Fi, food credits or other amenities. And while availability can never be guaranteed, I love when I can arrange for you to be greeted by name and offered an upgraded room at no additional cost.
Plus, whether you are traveling on business or vacation, I will be monitoring your trip to ensure that everything is going to plan. If you are hit with a flight cancelation or other unanticipated bumps, I am available to smooth the way and can leverage the clout of Protravel to maximize your budget and provided with priority VIP treatment.
No matter what your travel needs, you can rest assured, I plan each trip as though it were my own, seeking out the best deals and looking for the hotels, restaurants, and activities that best suit your needs and wishes.
