Travel is my life. For as long as I can remember I’ve dreamed of destinations and packing for trips. I can still remember hiding in the back of my parent’s station wagon pretending I was in Hawaii when we picked up the babysitter. My best childhood memories were of trips we took in the US and the Caribbean. Watching my parents skillfully navigate a variety of travel situations provided me with tools I didn’t appreciate at the time; my father talking his family of 4 onto a plane in a packed San Juan airport on New Years Day when travel was ceased for days due to snow. Or, watching my luggage-less mother make flawless arrangements after arriving in Germany with a group of Girl Scouts to find all included food had been re-budgeted to cover a last minute change in airline.
One of my proudest moments was having to add pages to a 2 year old passport.
As a mid-aged woman who made my first international trip alone at the age of 15, I have a lifetime of travel expertise gained from navigating the world. You can benefit from what I’ve learned – and the mistakes I’ve made.
When I’m not traveling, I’m employed at one of America’s largest magazines. Thanks to having one of the largest sales quotas in the magazine industry, I am known for creatively entertaining clients and my restaurant picks. I approach each business trip like an adventure, and do the brief research necessary to maximize my free time.
There is nothing I would rather do than travel, plan trips and provide travel information to friends, family, on places like Tripadvisor and here.
