Writer, professional jetsetter (I'm a flight attendant!) and dance floor/music festival enthusiast. Primarily NYC-based, but frequently hanging out on the West Coast.
I love a healthy balance when I travel – mixing the perfect amount of adventure with relaxation, partying with wellness, sightseeing must-sees with off-the-beaten-path discoveries. I want to see all the top spots while also diving deep into the local experience and exploring a destination through residents' eyes. I have ample experience as a solo traveler, but am also the go-to person amongst my friends to plan group trips. I'm also a firm believer that where you stay can make a huge impact on your travel experience. I deeply value the unique experiences and amenities that great hospitality can provide.

Shelley was extremely helpful in organizing our in-country trip. She was the one who pointed us to Nayara in the first place, and helped with everything from airport and in-country shuttles to reserving activities. She was very quick and helpful in responding to all our questions, and provided a comprehensive itinerary before our departure that was a useful reference throughout our trip. Thanks Shelley!

Shelley went above and beyond to make our experience top notch! She took care of making dinner reservations, coordinated an early check in for us (which was an incredible perk) and made the entire experience seamless. She provided us with many options for our travel and we were pleased with her recommendations! Can’t wait to work with her again.

Please see the above comments. We highly recommend our travel advisor, Shelley DeHekker. She provided us with details and information about several hotel options with rates and amenities that were clear, and timely. She also gave us recommendations for things to do in Copenhagen. We loved her suggestions.
