A love for traveling is in my blood. My family has owned a travel agency since I was a child, so I was fortunate to grow up exploring the world and knowing from an early age that I wanted to share my love of adventure with others.
Although I enjoy booking all types of trips for my clients, my true expertise lies in setting up adventure travel itineraries.
For example, I recently put together an exciting biking, hiking and kayaking tour in Slovenia combined with an Oktoberfest trip to Germany for one client. And a 3 week African Safari and Mount Kilimanjaro hike for a honeymoon couple.
I am also passionate about sustainable travel and helping my clients immerse themselves in the local culture. For one group of adventurers, I booked an Inca trail and Wayna Picchu trip and their accommodations during the trip were local guest houses and hostels.
I have, in fact, become the go-to person for adventure and sustainable travel in my office. In addition to having traveled to many different countries -- including but not limited to Turkey, Russia, Germany, Greece, Central America and Italy -- I graduated with honors from SAIT in Travel and Tourism and have certifications for Sandal resorts, Monograms, Disney, Globus, Avalon and Hawaii.
In addition, I consider myself a Costa Rica expert as I have had the pleasure of exploring this country extensively firsthand.
One of my favorite quotes is: "We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us." I believe this quote perfectly captures my belief that traveling is not just about visiting tourist attractions but about sampling the life of the locals so you can truly appreciate the unique culture of a region.
My goal is always to craft one-of-a-kind journeysfor my clients that will reward them with priceless memories and that could even change their perspective of the world. I do this by trying to get to know my clients intimately, learning their likes and dislikes and discovering what exactly they are hoping to get out of their vacations.

Alicia planned a 25(ish) person wedding to Mexico that I was in. We didn't have to worry about paper work and everything was ready for us to go. She found us the best accommodations she could given the price range the couple was looking at (in my opinion) and did everything in her power to make everything go smoothly for travel and the wedding itself. We had no complaints and she was great to deal with! I would definitely recommend...Read more
