It all started when Julie was an exchange student living north of Rome, Italy.

Her passion for travel developed beyond going places to discovering the soul of a locale through cultural immersion. It’s what led Julie to launch a boutique travel design business as a way to share her travelogues with like minds who have a wanderlust for the extraordinary, unexpected and exclusive—in every sense of the word.

Julie has traveled to 30 different countries (and counting) as mystical as Peru, distinctive as Iceland, and faraway as Australia. Her wealth of firsthand insights also includes ski trips to Switzerland and Austria and a long list of winter escapes to Caribbean islands like Anguilla, Antigua, St. Barths, Grenada and the Dominican Republic. Of course, she’s also hit treasures in the U.S. and neighboring gems in Central and South America.

In addition to sheer love of travel, Julie’s early career in international marketing brought her to cosmopolitan cities in Europe, Asia and Australia where she sharpened her skills in event planning. It’s this blend of professional organization, on-the-ground connections and her zest for immersive travel that makes her expertise so valuable. Moreover, as a mom of three, who’s been traveling with her little ones from toddler to teen years, Julie knows the ins and outs of orchestrating kid-friendly family excursions.
