I grew up on a small farm in rural Oregon. As an adult, I got the travel bug and love experiencing the sights and culture of other places. While cruising through the Mediterranean, I solidified my passion for travel and desire to share that with others. My husband and I have flown hot air balloons in Central and Western Europe as well as North America.  Scuba diving in the South Pacific and the Caribbean are always a treat for me.  Whenever possible, you will find me riding my motorcycle to explore interesting destinations. 

I have a profound love for life and sense of adventure. My wide-ranging experience, informed advice and influence with travel vendors throughout the world are what make me stand out in the travel field.
