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, arts, music, culture, food….you name it! I love learning about new cultures and the people that make them so magical.  I continue my quest for adventure and exploring new destinations such as beautiful beaches, lush gardens, cultural events, historical monuments, museums, and local arts, music & regional food festivals. 

For over 11 years, I have booked travel all over the World on 6 Continents and over 60 Countries. 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”.
