Travel is in my blood. I love researching and planning vacations and have been doing this pre-Internet days. I remember my first international vacation at the age of 10 and relish my future travels. Ever since that first overseas vacation, I have been enveloped in a world of travel. In high school, I raised enough money to fund my first visit to Mexico with my Spanish class. In college and graduate school, I planned many independent trips to Europe and Asia. I still remember scouring through guide books and writing down lists of preferred sights, hotels, and restaurants. I put this much care and consideration into your travels. Aside from traveling overseas, I have lived in multiple locales, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, New York, Seoul, and Rome. Through these travels and time away from home, I’ve learned to connect with locals and gain a better understanding of how the rest of the world lives. Knowing different cultures, I can help travelers navigate the streets and feel like the locals. I’m also a mother of two young children, ages 3 and 5, who have traveled with me and my husband. As a mother, I have learned how to make travel comfortable for young children. Our kids have traveled with us to England, France, Korea, and throughout California. Having traveled with young children, I know how to accommodate the needs of families and multigenerational travel. My professional experience includes a Master’s Degree in Education and working as a high school social studies teacher for more than 11 years. As a history teacher, I enjoy sharing the culture and significant historical events with my students. Students and parents have commended my ability to distill history and make it easily digestible. For travelers, I help you prepare for your travels and would love to discuss the history of the region you plan to visit. Let me share my enthusiasm for travel with you!
