A San Diego-based mama & creative soul who never fully unpacks from her last trip before the next one begins.
I spent most of my early adult life traveling and exploring art, people, and cultures as a solo traveler. I learned the art of slow and being quick to listen and observe. Today, I am a mama of two and my specialty is traveling with family while still engaging in enriching, educational and meaningful travel experiences. I have a passion for organization and structure as well as for play and creativity, and this shows in the way I approach travel. I want to make it approachable and memorable for others, no matter your life stage or budget.
