Always and forever, granddaughter of Italian immigrants, consummate style fashionista and foodie, I find beauty in a simple meal, a destination, architecture, fashion and spaces –just to name a few. Perhaps my grandparents passed on the travel “gene” to me during their voyage to America in the 1930’s.
Contemporaneously, I find that my travels have given me a front seat to the simple beauty found in the countryside of Tuscany, the arrondissements of Paris, Gaudi’s cathedral in Barcelona, and the list goes on and on. Travel is education. I believe it reveals an intellectual curiousity, that begs for more. As a curious soul, destinations, people, culture, architecture, markets, and ethnic foods speak to me. The more I explore, the more I yearn to do so.
As a Director of Human Capital for many years, I am now taking the knowledge, wisdom and lessons learned (aka transferrable skills) to my next journey, travel liaison. Always having a destination on my calendar, excites my soul. Travel nourishes the mind, body and soul. Join me-no age limit!
“Travel isn’t always pretty, it is not always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts. But that ‘s okay. The journey changes you. It should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
If I were a horse, you would say I’m bred for this. My mom, Annie Collins, took me (against my will) on a summer trip to Europe when I was 15. Her parents were living in Portugal at the time. I came back a changed kid, and I guess you could say I’ve been travel obsessed ever since.
Freedom Travel has given me the opportunity to explore this awesome world of ours, and raising a large family has helped me become a master planner/organizer and the ability to get people where they need to be. I’m passionate about my family, exploring and adventuring, and anything with 4 legs. Put on your tennis shoes- it’s time to go!
