After graduating from Ithaca College with a Master’s Degree, my professional career began as a physical therapist in large urban hospitals and healthcare settings in New York and California, and then as Director of Rehabilitation for a skilled nursing facility in Montana.

After more than a decade of working with a Brownell advisor to book all of our travel, my passion for luxury hotels and resorts combined with an entrepreneurial spirit led me to pivot to a career in travel. Now, luxury travel is my business and my pleasure and I couldn’t be happier.

I live in the gorgeous mountain town of Whitefish, Montana with my husband George, our 14-year old son Johnny, and our Australian Labradoodle Daisy. When I’m not working or traveling, I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, golf, and yoga. My favorite type of vacation? Luxury beach resorts (and Paris)!
