About Me

I was introduced to nature and the outdoors at a very early age growing up in MT. I enjoy activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, camping, skiing, rafting, skydiving….you name it! As an adult, I continue my quest for adventure and exploring National Parks, Ancient Ruins, Historical Monuments, and “The Wonders of the World”. 

I have booked personal and business travel all over the World on 6 Continents and over 80 Countries for 10 years. This experience booking travel began with my appointment as a business manager for a World Renowned Neurologist in Reno, NV. I helped with the extensive paperwork and documentation for travel visas, last minute changes, putting out fires, and being a point of contact during travels. 

Whatever your desires might be from cruising the Caribbean, All-Inclusive Resorts, biking through Europe, hiking Peru or exploring unusual destinations, I am here to assist in making your vacation a “memory of a lifetime”.
