Louisville, KY, USA

Like talking to a friend who’s just visited, Erin uses her first-hand knowledge and extensive insider relationships to pull the strings behind the scenes, allowing you the comfort of knowing nothing’s left to chance, unless, of course, that’s entirely the point. She aims to understand your unwind, whether it looks like the exclusive swim-up suite on an unnamed island in Greece, or getting wrapped up in culinary immersion on the side streets of Mexico City. From her home in Louisville, KY, Erin curates exceptional trips using her trusted connections at SmartFlyer, personal recommendations, and deep industry knowledge.

Favorite Memory

FORESTIS making my “perfect day” dreams come true. Starting with waking up to an incredible sunrise over the mountains (viewed from bed), a yoga class, and breakfast leaving nothing to want, then out to adventure for the day (hiking, biking, and exploring, with a little getting lost), an idyllic lunch at a mountain chalet, and then back to the hotel for a late afternoon pool, sauna, sunset apertivo and a beautiful dinner with perfectly paired wine to top it all off.

Insider Tip

Don’t be afraid to travel in the “off season”! A quieter hotel has extra secrets to share.

Next Dream Trip?

I’d like to do a tour and will attempt to narrow it to three: Marbella Club since every client raves, Sublime Comporta because I think I want to live there, and Villa TreVille because it’s Villa TreVille!

Cannot travel without...

Unfortunately for me/fortunately for clients, my laptop. But also, running shoes – for me a run is the best way to explore any destination.
