Taylor offers her clients first-hand knowledge and a deep passion for vacation planning coupled with her fresh-faced and energetic approach to travel.

A New Jersey native, Taylor moved to New York City in 2010 to attend New York University. There, she studied Cultural Aesthetics and Travel in addition to pursuing a minor in Italian. Taylor has been traveling extensively since a young age; her early travels brought her to the western part of the United States and the Caribbean while her recent travels have been primarily within Europe. Taylor previously lived in Florence and it was during her time in Italy that she developed a deep passion for the country and the culture. To this day, Italy continues to be her favorite and most-requested destination.

Taylor is constantly discovering new hotels and resorts to share with her clients. That being said, perhaps her most valuable assets when planning travel are the relationships that she has developed with other industry professionals, as she has been working in the hospitality space for 8-years and counting. These relationships have been fostered through involvement in of the industry’s most exclusive events, including Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas and International Luxury Travel Markets in both Cannes and Mexico. It is these lasting connections, her attention-to-detail and intense dedication to servicing clients with excellence that contribute to her success as a luxury travel advisor.

She’s fallen in love with California and has been able to discover the many benefits that the Golden State has to offer! Through her explorations, Taylor has recently honed her expertise on California road trips as they are one of her favorite personal hobbies. She can’t wait to share the secrets of the West Coast, along with the dozens of other areas of specialty, with her clients!
