Head of Marketing and Human Resources
My husband Darren and I have many similarities in our career paths! I left a rewarding career as a lawyer, most recently in Manhattan and previously in Boston, to turn my love of travel into a profession. I grew up in the small seaside town of Duxbury, Massachusetts but always had eyes focused overseas. First, on my birthday list, every year was a trip – cruising the Mediterranean, exploring Europe, seeing wildlife in Africa… I am fortunate that I have now been to so many of these destinations about which I once dreamed and that I can now call travel my career. And, like Darren, I love to share my knowledge and experiences!
I have a special place in my heart for Southern Africa. The combination of safari, culture, and gorgeous beaches ticks every box. However, special parts of Europe will always be my first-discovered gems. I spent many summers traveling through Italy and staying on the Amalfi Coast, where I fell in love with the culture, food, and beauty. I am honored to call many locals my friends. I also have a soft spot for St. Barthelemy…the beaches, shopping, and European flair make the island the jewel of the Caribbean in my eyes.
The most exciting aspect of Travel Sommelier is that we are continuously exploring and discovering new locations and niche products around the world. We love to share our “hidden gems” with our clients! Our mantra is not to send you anywhere unless we have first-hand knowledge that a given product is unique, unforgettable, and best-in-show.
