Interests As a child of a disabled parent travel was limited to the summer road trips from suburban New York to an uncle's house in Ortley Beach New Jersey. It wasn't until her last year in college that she took her first plane ride to Florida. Knowing from that moment she would be a travel princess her career and personal life have been centered around her love for a great concept and her love for new places. During the day she and her beloved agency-mates spend countless hours helping travelers find the destinations they emotionally connect with and in her spare time she pursues the same for herself.
