A longtime resident of Washington, D.C., Josie has traveled extensively since she was also two-and-a-half years old. Her passport holds stamps from all seven continents.

A combination of work and leisure travel have brought her all over Europe, India, Canada, Alaska, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Dubai, France, the UK, Ecuador, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, and Guatemala, (just to name a few!). And while Josie will continue exploring hotspots, favorite places are California, South Africa, Italy and, of course, Washington D.C. She loves helping clients craft their own trips to these destinations and beyond.

She started her career in the travel coordinating high-touch, group, incentive and leisure travel for the most influential business leaders around the world with the 25,000 member strong Young Presidents Organization. She continues to work extensively with this global network of young chief executives and its membership coordinating events, incentive travel and luxury personal travel. Additionally, Josie continuously travels with her family scouting the best destinations for her honeymoon, couple, and family leisure clients.

Traveling the world has been a persistent tenet in her life since her formative years. She is always looking for the next adventure to share with her clients. Be sure to ask Josie about her five World Cups, scuba diving between two tectonic plate in Iceland and the Great Barrier Reef, playing polo on elephant back in Nepal, camel races at the Pushcar Camel Fair in Rajasthan, and riding 110 roller coasters around the world. You’ll be glad you did!

What is your most memorable travel experience?

Playing polo on elephants in Nepal! This was a breathtaking once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget.

What does you perfect vacation day look like?

My perfect vacation day includes sun, sand, ocean, good food and great people! At the end of the day, I would be thinking of which clients it would be the perfect fit for, and sharing the experience them.

Travel Tip

  • Get to know the destination by asking the locals where to go! Josie always asks the locals to point her to the best restaurants, awesome spots to watch the sunset, the best coffee shops, etc.
