My journey into the travel Industry started at a very young age. I was born and raised in the Caribbean—an area rich in colours, music, tastes, and sounds. As a child, I would look at the world map and dream about experiencing the language, cultures, and history in those faraway destinations.
My interest in languages, geography and world history led me to a career in International Education; and after coming to Canada as a young mother, I continued to explore, instilling a love of travel in my children. It was the experiences while travelling and the people I have met from all over the world that led me to transition from my career in education into a transcendent and rewarding profession in the travel industry.
My favourite destinations tend to be near the ocean. Think powder sugar sands and turquoise clear waters. But I also love cities with rich history and architectural gems that are, in themselves, outdoor museums. I specialise in a wide range of travel products that include premium and luxury cruise lines, small group tours, and customised family travel.
I believe the best travel stories happen unexpectedly: finding a picturesque spot while searching for a way back to a main street in Athens, accepting a chef’s invitation to lunch at his home patio in Saint Tropez (true story), or missing a highway exit and discovering a hidden village nobody knows about in central Mexico.
