Food and wine obsessed. Former pastry chef, current elementary school teacher and mother to three kids. Have never met a winery I didn't enjoy. Southern California-based and teahouse aficionado.
Luxe adventurer – thread count matters, people! I love a gorgeous pool and spa, and hotels with amenities and great on-site dining. Centrally located to minimize driving and change my perspective/see things like a local for unique experiences. You will usually find me trying the newest restaurant, local cuisine and visiting small business-owned bakeries/cafes. I want to feel rejuvenated after travel – so spas, full glasses of wine, relaxing walks on the beach and casual strolls through town are staples. I personally have three travel "categories" that keep me fulfilled and help me enjoy the people I love the most in my life. First is family trips with my husband and three kids. These trips are for making memories and modeling for my kids how to safely, enjoy travel and see the world. Second is taking solo trips with just my husband and I to keep our connection and marriage strong. We like to getaway no less than every couple of months, even if it's just for a night or two sans kids. Third, is my girls trips with my four favorite ladies. We've been friends for over 20 years. We make the best memories, have tremendous fun and side-splitting laughs. Whatever your travel needs are, I am your girl to help bring your travel dreams to life.
