Hey, sassy globetrotter.

You don't travel to just scratch the surface, throw up a few instagram stories and call it a day. You travel because nothing on earth makes your heart smile brighter or fills your soul with more satisfaction than an epic adventure in a foreign land... and yes, you better believe it will be well documented on instagram. 

I have a theory.

It's that great travel experiences act like a bridge between the person you have always been and the person you've always wanted to be.

Why? Because they extend an open invitation to expand your horizons, grow your perceptions, fortify your courage and reawaken your sense of awe and wonder... An invite, to be your true self on a grand scale. 

Wether you are looking for a fun filled weekend romp or an epic multi-continental, adventure saga, I'm here to help you bring your dream vacation to life - let me tell you how...

my travel story

Born and raised on a homesteading farm in northeastern BC, my curiosity and passion for exploration were cultivated and nurtured from a very young age. As a young girl, the wilderness was my universe and I spent every waking moment exploring and interacting with it. With a Dutch immigrant father and an Irish-Newfy mother, I was exposed to the robust tapestry of Maritime and European cultures from a young age.

My mother, ever the explorer, rode her bicycle across Canada at 18 years of age and instilled in me this same wanderlust and passion for the unknown. She would take my younger brother and I on backroads adventures that would make the modern helicopter parent blush. From dirt road access only Mexican villages to multi-day backcountry hikes, I learned to connect to nature and culture through people, art, food, folklore, and tradition. 

At 17 I traveled throughout western Europe for 3 months before entering University to study Spanish. Two years later I moved to a small coastal Mexican village and fell even deeper in love with the culture and way of life. I came away from my year in Mexico a fluent Spanish speaker and a raving fan of the Mexican people, their culture, and way of life. 

Flash forward quite a few years later, I'm still a voracious traveler exploring off the beaten track Mexico yearly, together with a rotating cast of other international destinations. Combine that with an all over the map entrepreneurial track record as a life coach, event planner, communication specialist, marketer, project manager, photographer, and writer, and I'm just the person you want looking after your next worldly adventure, be it big or small.

My skills, combined with those of my brilliant Personal Travel Management family, cover the entire globe ten times over and will change the way you travel forever, for the better.
