Always trying to cross new travel destinations off my list. LA-based with frequent visits to Texas. Latina. Dog mom. Event planner. Philanthropist. Good human.

My travel style
I've lived many lives! One of them being Chief of Staff to a famous musician and another to a famous athlete. This kept me on the road for 95% of my life for the last 13 years. If there's anything I'm good at it's building unique itineraries that range from luxury European travel to adventurous beach travel to a wellness retreat in Costa Rica. I love researching cities I've never been to and putting an unforgettable itinerary together.

A pilot let me drive the plane on a hopper flight in Mexico.
I once traveled for work by plane to 39 cities in 40 days.
