Profile details


Former executive that achieved my goal of retiring early to travel the world. Have been to 22 countries with my husband (and favorite travel partner) by my side. Enjoy hiking, biking, pickleball, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Travel style

My best travel days include a long, challenging hike followed by relaxing on the beach or in a geothermal pool. My itineraries are action packed -- filled with seeing the local sights, taking in nature’s beauty, learning about the local culture, and finding off the beaten path moments. I am always looking for unique opportunities to push myself outside of my comfort zone and experience the wonders of this world.
