I began my career in travel as a Luxury Travel Advisor after 12 years in the economic development field. You could say though that I started my travel career at the age of 4, when I accompanied my father, who has been in the travel industry for over 35 years, on a site visit in Paris. From that point on I enjoyed searching out the best hotels all over the globe. Having visited over 50 countries and counting, I continue to travel extensively with my husband and two young sons researching the best hotels and experiences for our clients.

Favorite Memory

Favorite travel memory- Lunch at the beach club at Borgo Egnazia. Epitomized vacation, taking a leisurely bike ride to the beach club for what was a lunch that is true to the term dolce vita. Course after course of fresh seafood, vegetables, pasta, and of course with bottle after bottle of wine. This three-hour lunch where we were able to slow down, enjoy the food and the conversation, all while looking out over the sea, is what makes vacation memories.

Insider Tip

I always recommend not making Capri into a day trip from the Amalfi Coast, and instead staying over at Capri Tiberio so that clients can really experience the true Capri after the throngs of day tourists are gone. That said, one of my favorite ways to experience a day on Capri is on the water. Charter a private boat for the day and head for lunch at either Lo Scoglio Da Tommaso or La Conca Del Sogno. Always finish the meal with a Sgroppino!

Next Dream Trip?

I personally am most excited to visit Marbella Club. It is a client favorite and has the most amazing 50,000 sq. ft. kids club. I know my own children would love to experience the activities like cooking, gardening, perfume making, etc. And the beach is gorgeous!

Cannot travel without...

My running shoes! Going on a run is always my favorite way to explore a new destination.
