British-born, European-educated, and currently residing in the States, Fiona has an abundance of anecdotes to dazzle dinner parties with tales from her countless travels.
Born in the countryside of Kent–a stone’s throw from London–Fiona caught the travel bug young and left England to pursue her education across Europe. She was schooled in France and Italy and later lived in Spain and Switzerland. Each move gave her the opportunity to immerse herself in a unique cultural landscape and fueled her passion for continued exploration. Fiona’s fascinating upbringing, savvy communication skills, and sociable nature have naturally led her to pursue a career in travel–an industry where her strengths lend themselves to creating incredible trips.
Fiona recognizes how precious time is and goes out of her way to make sure her clients’ most valuable resource is well spent. Her consultation process begins with gaining a firm understanding of what travelers are seeking in an escape. This conversation ensures that each trip is tailor-made to be memorable, whether it’s heliskiing in Canada, exploring the breathtaking architecture of Paris, or simply sipping a margarita on the beach in Turks and Caicos. Fiona understands that every getaway corresponds to a client’s particular needs and works happily to not just meet those, but exceed all anticipated needs before they arise.
The trip I remember most vividly was a week I spent in Rome. Even today, everything from the buildings to the warmth on my skin to the scents swirling in the streets stuck with me. One morning, my friends and I watched the city slowly come to life with warm cornettos and cafe solos from above ground. Only so much planning can be done when it comes to travel, sometimes the best memories are unplanned with the right people at your side.
My perfect day depends on how I feel while traveling. Lately, the day has begun with a slow, peaceful breakfast – how often does that happen in our day-to-day lives? – followed by some sort of activity, which could be a run or walk to discover new surroundings, sightseeing, or a sport, depending on whether I’m near water or in the snow. A mid-afternoon lunch is accompanied by uninterrupted reading and a good cocktail, followed by a late al fresco dinner with my nearest and dearest family and friends. I make sure to end the night with dancing, every time.
