Ada, Michigan Travel Agent
Luxury Travel Agent
I began my career in the travel industry in 1997 when I joined my family’s publishing company, Ginkgo Press, which publishes international culinary travel guidebooks. Utilizing my graphic design degree and business experience, I provided all creative and marketing support for the company’s award-winning Eat Smart Culinary Travel Guides. In 1998, our business began offering culinary tours to the destinations featured in our guidebooks and have since expanded to include destinations not yet covered in an Eat Smart guide. Since the inception of the company’s tour business, I have worked intimately with destination management companies and tour operators to create luxury culinary and cultural travel experiences for my clients.
Myself and my business partner/mother provide leadership expertise on all of our tours. Turkey is my favorite destination because of its culinary and cultural connections to the ancient Greek, Persian, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. We currently offer culinary and cultural tours to Croatia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Morocco, Portugal, Norway, Peru, and Sicily. Becoming a luxury travel advisor with world-renowned Protravel International was the natural progression in my career. My strong customer service experience, combined with excellent organizational and research skills, allow me to create the ultimate travel experiences for my clients. I pride myself in helping singles, couples, friend groups and families find exactly what they are looking for in their travel needs. I can assist with dietary restrictions or choices and can make special arrangements to accommodate most limited mobility situations.
