I have been a hairstylist for 18 years, and have spent the past eight years traveling the world – ready for a career change! I recently became a Mrs. and dog mom, which are both things that light up my world.

Home airports

SMF is the closest. For international flights, I use SFO, OAK or LAX.

My travel style

I love diving into culture and experiencing the local side of things. Unless it's absolutely amazing, you will rarely catch me in a museum. I am more likely to be at a local watering hole making friends and changing my itinerary based on their recommendations. I'm known for staying in touch with people I meet on my travels, and traveling to see them every year or so to share a vacation in another country. These are the things that light me up. I also have a huge passion for photography since my husband is a photographer. We love to spend all day just wandering a city, capturing its beauty and stopping at cafes along the way.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Tomb raiding, pyramid exploring, river cruising and desert four-wheeling in Egypt.

  • Wine tasting in Tuscany on a girls trip.

  • Hiking waterfalls and exploring rice fields at sunset in Bali.

  • Stuffing myself with tapas while wandering the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

Dreaming of:

  • Hiking Machu Picchu.

  • Snowboarding in Chile and Argentina.

One thing I can't travel without...

My packing cubes and passport – duh!

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I saw 30 countries before I turned 30.

  2. The only continent I haven't been to is South America.

  3. My least favorite place I have been to is Athens.
