Sheree M. Mitchell has traveled to over 40 countries, lived on three continents and speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese and some Italian. In her early-thirties, she gave up a comfortable life and career in her native Florida to embark on a year-long solo sojourn around the world that changed the course of her life. Today she’s the founder and president of Immersa Global (USA) and SMM Advisory (Portugal), two boutique firms that specialize in designing and executing very unique and exclusive travel experiences for well-traveled, discerning clients. Mitchell is considered a thought-leader in highly-curated travel as well as in extended solo (female) travel. She speaks regularly at travel and tourism conferences throughout the U.S. and Europe. Most recently, Mitchell has been invited to design projects that use tourism as a vehicle to connect cities in the U.S. with cities in Portugal at the municipal and national level.
Mitchell’s passion for curating unique travel experiences was first discovered in graduate school when her professors challenged her to design a two-week study abroad program in Costa Rica for other students. Since then, she has successfully curated high-end student and adult small group travel to Spain, France, Portugal, Costa Rica, Miami, and most recently Israel. (Learn more here.)
Mitchell says that international travel has been a lifelong investment and her most important personal asset. It has empowered her to define global citizenship on her own terms as well as design a life of perpetual globetrotting that most would consider impossible.
Her favorite saying is, “Be daring enough to dream big and resilient enough to make it happen.”
I love networking with other people from around the world who enjoy global travel as much as I do.
It's anywhere where I feel welcome and happy.
