From the moment I arrive at an airport until I land back home, I feel completely exhilarated….and a funny fact:  I love to spend time at airports! There are so many fascinating people traveling from place to place, so many languages one hears, so many cultures one sees…and this is just the beginning…of a great travel experience!

My parents, who were both born in Berlin, Germany, lived in five countries, spoke four languages, instilled in me the passion for traveling at a very young age.  I was born in Paris, lived in Bogota, Colombia for 16 years, studied in Florence and London, and spent many summers enjoying our second home in the Cote D’Azur (South of France).  

My travel career began in New York City, where I worked for 14 years planning and organizing high-level, global incentive trips for corporations. I loved every minute of my job and I am beyond happy to be back in the travel industry as a personal Travel Advisor. 

As an experienced traveler and seasoned professional, I am deeply passionate about sharing my love for exploring the world and dedicated to making every single trip I plan for my clients, exceptional, memorable and meaningful!
