Your Personal Travel Consultant

With a background in international education, I have helped plan over 50 student group trips and guided the students along the way on everything from deciding their destination to budgeting to successful packing. I have planned and organized trips for up to 15 people to both international and U.S. based destinations and am thrilled to have the opportunity to also help you plan your dream trip!

How It Works
Tell Me About You & Your Trip
Initial Consultation
First Draft Itinerary
Fine-Tune the Details
Enjoy Your Trip!

You’ll start by sharing your travel preferences with me in an easy 5-minute form. This helps me to better understand your travel style and makes me aware of any special requirements upfront.

I’ll respond with any follow up questions and we’ll chat through email, phone, or Skype (your preference) to discuss rates and next steps.
After we chat and get to know each other better, I will create a draft itinerary for your review.
See something I missed that you really want to do? Or are you not so sure you want to try that adventure activity we talked about? No problem! I’ll make sure your final plans are exactly the way you like.
With your finalized itinerary in hand, you’ll be all set to make your bookings and head off to explore your new destination!

Keep in mind that all bookings for hotels, transportation, activities, etc. must be made on your own. I will provide you with all the details necessary to make your reservations in a seamless process.
