My career in travel began as a hobby. After returning from the Peace Corps in 2006, I began to help my family members and friends with their own travel plans. I simply loved sharing my experiences abroad and I enjoyed assisting them as they created their own itineraries that were sure to be filled with many memories. In 2014, I decided that I should turn my passion into a career, and I never looked back.
Exciting News: I have transitioned from my pervious career into the travel world full time! In additional to planning travel I will be working to help persons interested in working in the travel industry determine if this is the right path for you. Visit: The careers section of my website.
