About me

I’m an avid traveler but also a serious homebody. I have been to more than thirty countries (and counting) and lived abroad for extended periods of time.

Because I love being on the road so much, I used to think I wanted to cash it all in and live the nomadic life. Then I fell in love with my adopted home, Chicago, a beautiful, diverse city that’s always serving up something new. With its central location and two airports, Chicago also provides an excellent launching pad for my global adventures.

I have come to realize that I’m the sort of person who wants the freedom of a wanderer with the familiarity and comfort of a home base. I try to live my life like I’m always on an adventure, absorbing the fascinating diversity of the world around me and collecting new experiences during even the most mundane daily activities.

In my business, Global at Heart, I create personalized itineraries, provide resources, and share stories that help people weave the inspiration of their travels into their everyday lives.
