Travel has always been my passion.

Prior to my new-found SmarFlyer life, I’d been busy traveling the world as a Travel Director for several international meeting planning companies – which only furthered my craving for experiencing the world!

I began my career in the travel industry 18 years ago as Marketing Manager for the Florida Sales office of American Express Publishing, covering Florida, the Caribbean, Central/South America and Mexico for Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine and Departures Magazine.

As a Smartie, I love nothing more than sharing my personal experiences and love of travel with my clients so they too, can discover their own passion for travel!

What is your most memorable travel experience?

Africa – Experiencing life as a local in Nairobi, spiritually uplifting safari on the Serengeti plains in Tanzania and culture and physical, beauty of Cape Town South Africa.

What is your strategy for overcoming jetlag?

If possible, I allow myself at least one extra day to acclimate.

Favorite Travel Tip

Put the phone/camera down for 1 minute. Take a deep breath and experience the beauty of your surroundings. Then go ahead and snap that memory!
