Active adventure, Culinary & Culture Specialist

 "Love what you do, do what you love."  Those words from Ray Bradbury ring true for me in my career as a travel advisor. 

Navigating foreign landscapes, people, cultures, cuisines, smells, transportation systems and geography is thrilling for me.  My curiosity of the world runs deep and I strive to place my like minded clients in the middle of it all.  

2019 brought me to Africa, South America, Europe, Mexico and throughout the U.S. in search of unique contacts and suppliers.  2020 will take me to Mexico, Machu Picchu, California, Colorado and more.  In turn, I then custom design itineraries that place you in the midst of where you can experience your vacation unlike the masses.  

As a travel advisor I am eager to share my enthusiasm and expertise with clients.  My goal in building a fantastic itinerary for you is to take the necessary hours of trip planning out of your hands and make the process easy and enjoyable.  I strive to exceed your expectations, and sneak in a meal, side trip or adventure that will be unexpected, yet one of the highlights of your vacation.     

Whether you are looking to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro, relax on a tropic beach, cruise rivers or oceans, tour Italy for the wine crush, plan a group trip, or trek through the jungles of Africa or Asia, I am eager to build an authentic experience that meets your dreams. 

I look forward to travel advising adventures in 2020 and hope you will be part of the journey!

White knuckle ride over the Chicamocha Canyon!

ProColombia, the tourist board for Colombia brought 70 travel advisors to Colombia to meet with suppliers and experience some of the beauty that is Colombia.  I was lucky to be selected for this fantastic trip.  My group of 8 biked down the rocky dirt roads of the Andes, ending up at "Shangri La,"...

Otherworldly Adventure in Tanzania!

Carol was so helpful - found an amazing tour that worked with our timeframe and was a great fit for my husband and me . She was alway very easy to reach and very responsive. She kept in touch on a regular basis before we left providing reminders of what to pack/bring along with updates from the tour company. Would recommend Carol hands down!
