Vinal Desai Burbeck, CTA (Certified Travel Associate) is the founder of Wanderlark, a travel & event planning company. She started Wanderlark for one simple reason: she believes that a positive experience has the power to generate more long-lasting happiness than any material object. As its Chief Experience Officer, Vinal creates customized, unique experiences ranging from budget-friendly staycations & bachelorette getaways in the U.S. to luxurious vacations & honeymoons in Italy (and everything in between). Before founding Wanderlark, Vinal was a senior account manager at Google, where she led digital marketing strategy for live entertainment clients. Prior to Google, Vinal held a variety of positions at her alma mater, the University of Michigan. Currently, she is loving life in Ann Arbor, Michigan but tries to explore, eat and drink her way through other cities as often as possible.
