I’ve been lucky enough to have traveled since I was a kid (who doesn’t love family road trips?!) My parents always made sure that even during the long days of riding in the car to New York or California, we visited a special place along the way, even if it wasn’t in the direct route we were headed. These trips lasted easily into my early 20’s.

After I graduated from the University of Houston, I took a six week tour of Europe with one of my best friends. This was my first experience out of the United States, and when my travel itch really began. I started to travel as far and as often as my measly college graduate salary would let me.

After working in the corporate healthcare industry since college, I decided that it wasn’t what made me truly happy. In 2010, I began working as an agent part time, while still holding my full time job. Seven years later, this transitioned into a full time position here at Modern Vacations.

One thing I love about planning travel for my clients is the memories I know they’ll return with. Travel is about more than just the “best deal” you can find. For me, it’s about the value in the experience and the memories you create along the way. I love helping people find that. And I love hearing about it when my clients return. I have a lot of personal knowledge from my own travels that I love handing down to others.

I’ve now traveled to over 25 countries (many twice!), and almost always find myself at the beach. Other passions of mine include animal rescue (I am a lover of pitties) and my family. I also enjoy home DIY projects, refinishing outdated furniture, and gardening. I am a proud mama to two rescue pups, and wouldn’t have my life any other way.

Although I am one of the newest employees here, I’ve never felt more at home. Many people aren’t lucky enough to find the perfect career or the perfect company. But I am grateful to have found both!

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson
