Through my travels from Australia to Zambia, Myanmar to
Mozambique, Botswana to Bali, I have gained a special insight and expertise in luxury travel. In over thirty three years in the travel business, with more than twenty trips to South Africa alone, I’ve developed a unique niche for creating individual, multi-generational, honeymoon and adventure itineraries. These individualized lifetime dreams have included a 40th birthday celebration in St. Barts with private jets; a 3 month family vacation throughout Southeast Asia combined with East and Southern Africa and an extended family trip for 22 involving cruise, hotels, touring and transfers.

With certifications as a Specialist in Southern Europe, Luxury Cruise Specialist, Spa Specialist, and South African Fundi Specialist, I have additional tools and expertise to create the perfect trip for each client. My visits to most of the islands of the Caribbean, Hawaii, Tahiti, and even the Seychelles and Maldives have added to my personal knowledge. I have served on several hotel Virtuoso boards, and have maintained contact with many of the General Managers of our Virtuoso partners. My six grandchildren have also given an added personal dimension in multi-generational planning! As a former musicologist and concert pianist, I’m always interested in arranging access to concerts, opera and other cultural events for my clients. I also serve as an accredited Voyager Club host for Virtuoso on Crystal, Silversea, Seabourn, Regent and Azamara cruise lines.

Over the years my greatest satisfaction is in fulfilling and exceeding my clients’ expectations. Travel opens the world to us all, allowing us to explore and grow with exposure to new people, new sites and new cultures. It is my mission and my goal to fulfill our Virtuoso promise, and “orchestrate dreams.”
