About Us

How It Works

Step 1: Connect

I offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation to get to know each other. We will brainstorm ideas, tap into your travel likes and dislikes, past trips that have inspired you or left you disappointed, and go over important considerations like your budget, timing, and who you’ll be traveling with. I will listen closely to determine how I can best deliver what is important to you. By the end of this consultation, we will have a greater understanding of how we’ll work together.

Step 2: Design

After our call, you will be sent a Client Agreement to review and accept and an invoice for my services fees.

After receiving my planning fee and signing of terms & conditions, I will begin researching your itinerary. I will be working with my exclusive, vetted industry contacts to craft an itinerary just for you. You’ll receive 2-3 options from me. I can recommend hotels, tours, activities, etc and together we will determine the best options for your trip. *My service fees are non-refundable and due prior to beginning work on your itinerary.

Step 3: Manage

Once the destination and activities have been selected, and I feel confident that I have nailed down an itinerary and experience that meets your expectations, I will book, confirm and finalize the elements of your trip.

I also keep track of all the moving parts of your reservations, like when your deposits are due and important travel documents you must complete. As we count down the days to departure, I will stay engaged and connected with you, keeping you in the loop of any changes or new information that might be of interest.

Step 4: Depart

Look at you making those memories of a lifetime!

You’ll be off living your adventure while I am here living vicariously through you. This is YOUR time to travel and enjoy! Please reach out if there are any concerns while on the trip. If ever needed, I will put you in touch with a local contact who can assist with any itinerary changes, questions or emergencies.

HAVE A PHENOMENAL TRIP

Step 5: Welcome home

Welcome home! I can’t wait to hear about the highlights and experiences of your trip! Your feedback is important to me, as there is no better way to understand my clients’ experiences, then through your own eyes and words.
