Growing up in southern California, Carissa’s family loved to travel. Summers were spent visiting national parks on the weekends and exploring destinations like Europe, Australia and New Zealand—sometimes visiting five countries in ten days. The travel bug was certainly instilled in her at a young age. After high school graduation, Carissa moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to attend university for four years and earned a Masters degree in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology. Living and studying in the United Kingdom gave her the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Europe and beyond, changing her life forever and inspiring her to pursue a career in luxury travel, sharing her passion for the world with her clients.
Carissa has now worked in the travel industry for nearly ten years. It is her pleasure to collaborate closely with her clients crafting their dream vacation. She believes there is a perfect destination for everyone whether it be an exciting overland adventure, a relaxing cruise or a luxurious city experience.
Carissa is proud to have been nominated for Virtuoso’s Rising Star Award in 2013 and named one of Travel Agent Magazine’s “Top 30 Under 30” advisors in 2014.
It is an absolute joy for Carissa to share her personal experiences and connections with her clients to create lifelong memories as they explore the world.
