A little bit about me...
Let me begin by saying, I truly love what I do and believe it is my calling! I started TripBoutiq in 2008 after a career working for a top airline and have traveled my entire life.
Right out of college, I lived in London for seven years and during this time, I embraced life in this great world-class city in addition to traveling throughout Europe, making weekend trips to Amsterdam, France and Italy. When I returned to the US, I began my career in management in the airline industry. I also shared my passion for travel with others. This blossomed into launching my travel business where I dedicated myself to helping clients with their most important trips with loved ones, making special memories of a lifetime.
Over the years, I have worked with thousands of clients to plan luxury honeymoons, destination weddings, family vacations, and other types of trips to Mexico, the Caribbean, Tahiti, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
These trips have included a custom itinerary for a large family group to Italy with private drivers and professional guides throughout, including private tours of the Vatican and Colosseum in Rome, a tour of Pompeii, a luxury villa stay in Tuscany with private Vineyard tours, tours of all the famous sites in Florence, including the David in the Accademia Gallery. This dream vacation ended in Venice complete with tours of St. Mark's Basilica and the Grand Canal.
Another memorable trip was for a young couple and their parents to Australia and New Zealand. The highlight was a surprise wedding proposal under Sydney Harbor Bridge captured by a professional wedding photographer I arranged for this very special occasion.
A unique trip I planned for a multi-generation family reunion included a very large luxury villa in Kalkan, Turkey on the beautiful Mediterranean Coast complete with infinity pool and private chef! This custom vacation included tours to Xanthos, the capital city of ancient Lycia dating back to the 4th century BC, as well as Kekova Island, the sunken Lycian City, and a private gulet (traditional wooden sailing boat) tour with stops at deserted coves along the beautiful Mediterranean coast.
I have earned numerous certifications in travel and have attended exclusive Romance and International Travel Forums deepening my knowledge of destinations around the world. I am also a certified member of the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association (DWHSA) which is the world's largest network of romance travel specialists.
Without a doubt, my goal is to combine my love of travel and attention to detail to deliver an unforgettable vacation experience to each and every client I work with. My passion is to share the beauty, diversity and excitement of great travel destinations with my valued clients like you!
