Coming from a multicultural background, the spirit of travel is part of Lalka’s DNA. Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Miami, FL, she grew up speaking Spanish with her father, speaking Polish with her mother, and learning English in school. Lalka’s diverse upbringing has prepared her for a life of travel and exploration. Her first trip abroad was as a 1-year-old visiting Peru and she treasures that first passport with her baby picture! Throughout her life, Lalka lived in major cities with easy access to international travel, giving her ample opportunities to explore the world. Each of her journeys to 27 countries holds a special place in her heart, like her two-week tour of the Greek isles on a chartered 55’ sailboat, her skydive experience off Mission Beach in Australia, or her week-long excursion along the ancient Inca route to visit Machu Picchu in Peru. Every milestone voyage was carefully curated by Lalka so that she could focus on her passion for exploring her destination while fully experiencing the local culture without worrying about avoidable travel challenges. She truly believes that the journey is part of a person’s life-long learning experience and essential to a life well-lived. Prior to becoming a professional luxury travel advisor, Lalka was first a successful event producer in New York City for nearly a decade, working with high-profile clients and Fortune 500 companies to create and oversee experiential marketing programs that connect trendsetting consumers, influencers, and major media to elite brands. Following her entrepreneurial instinct, Lalka then identified an opportunity to combine her business management and planning skills with her love of animals and co-founded SoHo Hound in Tampa, FL, a 24-hour pet-concierge business that consistently received local accolades for its services and earned Lalka recognition as one of the “Top 10 Under 40” individuals by Tampa Magazine. Since selling SoHo Hound, Lalka has turned her attention to her passion for creating authentic travel adventures and making them available to others. Her ability to manage complexity allows her to design culturally-rich journeys through careful and thoughtful planning, allowing her clients to immerse themselves in a memorable luxury experience. Bring her your wish list and you’ll find Lalka to be a trusted partner who can provide you with exclusive access and exceptional service to create your unique travel experience.
