NYC-based health policy professional with Texas and Georgia roots. Forever traveling to find the best hiking trails and coffee beans.
My travel style can be described by two words: balance and hedonism. An active day of art and culture, lying on the beach, sensory food and drink tasting, breathtaking natural views while hiking and biking – you name it, I want to try it all! I love curating unique and novel itineraries with just the right pace, and fostering opportunities to connect with individuals who are local to the communities I visit. Having traveled frequently in the past decade, I'm comfortable planning itineraries on a variety of budgets and strive to maximize the value of every dollar. I love getting to know people and their preferred travel styles, and can't wait to translate that into your dream trip.

Misha's travel photos
Misha went above and beyond to put together the perfect Italy trip for my partner and I. From bike tours to food tours, museum visits to local restaurant recommendations, to setting up the rental car and train tickets, Misha did it all! We truly cannot thank her enough for allowing us to truly relax and enjoy our time off and not worry about "what do we do now?". We'll be using Misha from now on for our travels and cannot wait for the next trip. Thanks Misha!

Booked travel to Italy

We hired Misha after seeing her profile on budget-friendly travel, and I couldn't recommend her more! Initially, we were surprised by the planning fee, but after seeing the service she provided us, we never questioned it again. Misha was highly organized and so efficient with her communication. She clearly detailed each step during the planning process and was able to meet with us on Zoom when needed. The details, insight, and recommendations she provided us made our first European vacation a huge success - seriously, we did not encounter a single mishap along the way. Misha ended up booking four different stays for us across various cities and countries and she also helped with a car transfer service when we had trouble booking ourselves. She offered to contact the concierge at each place for further reservations and activity booking as well, but we did not require that. She was in communication with us during our trip for small things and truly made the travel planning so easy for us. This was our first time using a travel advisor, and I would certainly go back to Misha and Fora again!

Misha was such a wonderful advisor to work with! Her assistance was invaluable, as we had multiple destinations, transfers, and transportation, and it was our first trip to Italy. When there were some technical hiccups booking our vacation rentals, Misha was on top of things and quickly provided alternate suggestions for re-booking. The itinerary that she provided and her list of recommendations helped us narrow down the seemingly limitless options to a list of priorities that she had gleaned from our conversations. We are so thrilled with the trip and her assistance, we would highly recommend working with Misha to anyone who is planning to visit Italy!
