About Custom Travel Advisors
It was studying abroad in Italy and Greece while attending the University of Georgia that first ignited my passion for travel. After those transformative months , I went on to earn my BA in history, with an emphasis on Italian and European history, then my MBA at the College of William and Mary. After a brief career in the corporate world, I knew in my heart my future was in the world of travel. My passion is helping others make the most of their precious vacation time.
I opened a cruise-only travel firm in 1994 and evolved into the full service, land and cruise advisor that I am today. I use my extensive destination background – in Europe, the Caribbean, South America, the South Pacific, Alaska and Southeast Asia – to give clients the advice they need to make each day of their trip the most memorable it can be. With my connections through Virtuoso, I provide access to the world’s best luxury hotels, cruise lines and tour operators, complete with exclusive amenities clients can’t get anywhere else.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, reading, traveling (of course!) and cycling.
Travel has been a passion of mine for most of my life. My stepmother, a successful travel advisor, immersed me in travel as a child and it has been a passion of mine ever since. I studied abroad in Florence, Italy, when I was a student at Georgia College and State University. On that trip, I was able to soak in the culture and experience Italy like a local. On the weekends, I jumped on trains to explore the country. After my studies in Florence, I explored more of the Mediterranean onboard a luxury cruise ship.
When I graduated with a degree in Exercise Science in 2017, I began a career as an exercise and nutrition counselor. However, my love of travel (and my stepmother Susan) inspired me to transition to a career as a travel advisor! It felt like a natural move for me because I am always looking forward to the next trip I have planned. Whether it’s sipping red wine in Italy or exploring the jungles of Costa Rica, I am constantly inspired by travel, and I hope to share that inspiration with my clients. When I’m not traveling, I love cross fit, weightlifting, hiking with my Australian Shepard Kingsley, and sharing time with family and friends.
My love for travel is rooted in my love of meeting people, which is why I am always excited to connect with a new client. The best part of being an advisor is that it allows me to bring my clients’ dreams to life. Traveling can change a person’s perspective, and it is my aim to help make that happen for my clients, one experience at a time. I want to provide my clients with luxury experiences that are carefree, unique, and reflected on with a smile. Luxury is not about the price but about the customer service and quality, and I work hard to make sure my clients are satisfied at every turn.
