Adventure Travel Specialist
Silvertta Ski Tour - Austria and Switzerland
I am a mountain adventurer. I live and play in the mountains of Lake Tahoe, California with my husband and our 2 children.
I bring my experience and passion for exploring the outdoors to adventure travel planning for you!
Experiencing a destination means exploring the outdoors through hiking, biking, kayaking, sailing, climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing (the list is endless, isn't it??) and diving into the local culture through food, the people, and the sights.
Travel logistics, especially when traveling as a family, can feel overwhelming; I get it! I have experience planning multi-generational family groups and planning and traveling with my own family.
What I can do for you:
- Understand your interests to create a custom itinerary that speaks to your adventurous spirit. We will work together refining the itinerary till it's just right.
- Take away the feeling of being overwhelmed. With impeccable attention to detail and the care I take with your vacation planning; you'll be able to relax and enjoy the planning process.
- Save you time. Why spend hours on the internet searching when I will do that for you! My first-hand destination knowledge and local contacts can cut through the "noise" of too much information and find just the right experience for you.
- Be your travel advocate. Relax, knowing that I am working for you and what is in YOUR best interests for your dream adventure vacation.
I can create your adventure dream vacation to:
- New Zealand
- The Alps and Dolomites
- Ski touring and Ski Resort Vacations
I am dedicated to helping you realize your dream adventure vacation! I am detail-oriented and have years of experience as a project coordinator. I come to adventure travel planning from a background in environmental education with an MS in Natural Resource Management.
My next destination:
I am one of 100 U.S. travel advisors selected to participate in Corroboree West 2019! I'll be traveling to Perth, Western Australia in October for a few days of intense workshops, trainings and learning the latest on adventure travel in Australia. Then I get to go to Australia's island state of Tasmania for a 5 day Wildlife and Wilderness familiarization trip (where I get to experience a trip as a client!) - so, so, so excited!

My Travel Stories
I had an opportunity to ski in the Lofoten Islands of Norway and what a treat!
The islands are above the arctic circle on the northwest coast of Norway and with help from the temperate waters of the Gulf stream, Lofoten has a milder climate than other places at similar latitude, such ... Read more from my Summit to Sea Skiing in Lofoten Islands, Norway story.
