Corona del Mar, California Travel Agent
Luxury Travel Advisor
I grew up in Chicago and later earned my undergraduate degree from Arizona State University. I began my career in the travel industry as a hotelier, representing some of the finest and most highly acclaimed hotels in the world. Through these unique experiences, I was led to my ultimate career path as a professional travel planner. With my passion for travel and incredible attention to detail, planning tailor-made journeys for discerning travelers is a natural fit.
As a woman who loves to travel near and far, I feel that travel opens us up to new perspectives, provides personal growth and offers much needed enrichment and balance in our busy lives. I focus on taking the ordinary to extraordinary, living by the following phrase, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” This is the motto I reflect on when planning itineraries for my valued clients.
In my free time, I love hiking, listening to live music, doting on animals and enjoying time with loved ones. I'm an adventurer and always up for a challenge! In fact, despite my fear of heights, I have skydived, zip-lined and most recently bungee jumped off of the Kawarau Bridge in New Zealand. Needless to say, some of my personal favorite places to travel are more active destinations with exotic journeys and sightseeing.
I attribute my success to the strong relationships I have with my clients and the partnerships I've created with suppliers. My travel company, Luxury Ventures Travel, recently partnered with Protravel International to take our industry recognition to the next level. I am honored to have been named by Travel + Leisure as one of their 2017 “Rising Stars” and also excited to have been recently nominated by ASTA - American Society of Travel Agents as “Millennial Advisor of the Year” in 2018. I love what I do, and am excited to share my love for travel with others.
