I specialize in playful yet sophisticated, personally-tailored, leisure and corporate travel.
From flights, hotels, and private transportation to restaurants, tours, and that little something extra, l will take care of every aspect of your travel needs. With 13 years in customer service and 8 years in corporate travel and events, you can be confident I'll effectively manage every detail, no matter how small. Plus, I have access to all the goods – think upgrades, amenities, VIP status – that SmartFlyer and Virtuoso have to offer.
I am based in Atlanta, my true home away from home, but would not be the adventurer that I am today without growing up in Baton Rouge. Southeast Louisiana taught me to seek out unique cultures, foods, and people, and my family showed me the importance of travel. For me, travel is about embracing those small yet profound moments. Its power is in its subtleties, the lagniappe as Cajuns say.
I love boutique hotels with local vibes. The smells of a Parisian perfumerie. The joyful sounds of Jamaica. The bright, bold colors of Portugal's Pena Palace. The etiquette and tradition of Japanese culture. The thrill of trying wakeboarding for the first time. The buzz of Florence's Central Market. And racking up as many memorable sunsets as possible.
I crave off the beaten path adventures and that feeling you get when you know you're about to experience something that will change you. I feel just as much at home camping in the Smoky Mountains as I do at a 5-star resort and spa. And I would love the opportunity to work with you!
[It's all about relationships]
And thanks to my affiliation with SmartFlyer, a full-service travel agency catering to high-end corporate and leisure travelers worldwide, I've got them. Specializing in luxury hotels and resorts, this extensive network allows negotiated preferred partnership amenities, upgrades, and VIP status for a distinguished client base.
As a member of Virtuoso, I have access to the best in travel, with a portfolio of nearly 1,700 preferred partners – top hotels, cruise lines, tour operators, and more.
A relationship built on trust, honesty, and eventually history ensures travel plans are detailed to individual preference and style.
New clients are required to schedule a complimentary 30-minute call prior to kicking off a trip. Travel is extremely personal and subjective. Therefore, I want to take some time to get to know you. I ask in return that clients always keep an open and honest line of communication with myself.
[Time is a commodity]
Working with me will save you hours researching online, eliminate call hold times, ensure you make the most of your time on your trip, and ease moments of doubt. I remain only an email or call away and when traveling, my clients can reach me directly through their itinerary, allowing them to savor every moment.
[The travel market is always evolving]
This requires travel advisors to be on their game, in the know, and well connected.
I communicate daily with colleagues, suppliers, and my traveling clients to ensure I have the most up-to-date details on properties, destinations, and services. Trends change, properties age, and perceptions adjust. Therefore, each trip is tailored based off my client’s current interests and needs.
[I value my clients time and expenses equally]
And consider our relationships to be mutually beneficial.
I thrive only when adding value to your trip. You can choose anyone to be your travel advisor, so I know I have to bring that little something extra. My access to industry intel, preferred partnerships, and accessible benefits are only a small piece of what sets me apart. As for the rest? It's those little things, those little moments, the lagniappe.
