About

I am a brand strategist and designer who is passionate about helping people build their dream job in travel & lifestyle. I love wanderlust experiences and exciting adventures. I am a mom of two teen girls and a yellow lab, enjoy clean eats and fine wines, love hiking, tennis, swimming, yoga, and recently discovered my new profound love for snorkeling!

My travel style

Whether I travel for personal or business trips, I always seek destinations that are out-of-the-ordinary, adventurous, and soulful. I'm always on the hunt to find healthy food options, love to support local communities, and am influenced by culture, design, and authentic local experiences.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Exploring the beautiful coastline and art of Tulum, Mexico.

  • Snorkeling with sea turtles in Akumal and visiting healing cenotes for a women's birthday getaway.

  • Road tripping the California coast – from Santa Barbara shopping, wine tasting in Solvang, remote camping in Jalama Beach, and clam chowder touring in Pismo Beach to hitting old stomping grounds in Del Mar, San Diego area.

  • Exploring my backyard in the San Juan Mountains – hiking, glamping and hitting the spa at the Peaks Resort in Telluride, Colorado.

Dreaming of:

  • Exploring the most off-beaten-path snorkel destinations around the world.

  • Greece for the beauty, beaches, photos, amazing greek dishes loaded with olives and feta and hospitable people.

  • The Maldives to completely decompress, be somewhere very remote and relaxing and to find crystal clear waters for snorkeling.

  • Ecuador and the Galapagos to explore wildlife and biodiversity. Clearly, I have an obsession with turtles.

What’s one thing you can’t travel without?

My Hoka Sneakers.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. The Federales came searching for me while pool hopping in Tulum, Mexico.

  2. I led an outdoor courtyard yoga class in Telluride, Colorado to a group of drunken men who couldn't keep their pose.

  3. I've rafted through the Grand Canyon.
