At age 20, I sold my car and used the money to buy a ticket around the world. The rest is history.

As a small child, my family’s farming operation employed agriculture students from Europe and they would share stories of their homeland. As I grew older and spent more time with these students, my interest in experiencing foreign destinations soared.

I’ve always felt that travel is what I was destined to do! One of my fist jobs was working at Sacramento International Airport where I was a daily witness of departing passengers waiving teary farewells to loved ones, or balloon, flower and banner carrying greeters welcoming arriving passengers to the capital of California. Another role that added value to my livelihood was living and working on a resort island in the Whitsunday chain of No. Queensland, as well as working at a cattle station in Victoria, Australia.

My avocation as a travel professional entails working with a variety of individuals, interests and budgets – which constantly keeps me on my toes. From organizing a private night game drive in the Timbavati area of Limpopo, or wine tasting in South Africa, Australia or New Zealand, I can assist you in planning a journey to these destinations that include activities and adventures I can personally vouch for. Happy clients mean repeat clients! I’m always grateful for referrals, it’s the highest form of a compliment.

I try to live by Mahatma Ghandi’s mantra: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” In keeping my family’s tradition alive, I still oversee visiting international exchange students and host them in my home!
