I grew up as an only child to single mom on a very middle-class income. We struggled to keep food on the table let, alone have any extra money for vacations. I would always see such beautiful photos and movies of places around the world which fed my internal desire to explore and see what the world had to offer. My interest in travel inspired me to study Hospitality and Tourism Management in university yet I was a broke college student with just a wanderlusting soul.
I am an author, speaker, and have been in various media outlets including Forbes, Business Insider, Skift, Yahoo! Finance, Corporate Wellness Magazine, Jetset Magazine, USA Today, and the Washington Post
After graduating with my tourism degree, I worked various jobs and saved enough money to pack a bag and set off to see the world. Travel became my greatest professor. It taught so much about myself, the world, and what I wanted out of the life. I met thousands of travelers worldwide and learned why they traveled and how travel was impacting their life. I grew to understand the power that travel had on our mind, body, and soul. Still struggling to find my ideal travel job, I was inspired to start my own travel coaching business. I created my dream career that aligned with my love of travel and enabled me to use my unique travel experiences and areas of expertise to help others in a way that resonated most with me.
I founded The Travel Coach Network, a growing community of travel coaches and entrepreneurs, so I could inspire, teach, guide, and support other passionate women travelers to create and grow travel businesses that align with their own personal travel experiences and expertise. Every traveler is different and can help people travel in a very unique way.
I love helping women entrepreneurs use their passion for travel to transform their client’s lives while becoming change-making leaders in the travel industry. The travel industry is male-dominated and it is a part of my mission to change that. As a travel coach and consultant, my chosen area of focus is helping companies enhance their business travel and corporate wellness programs with the data-driven mental and overall health benefits of travel. It is my mission to reshape how and why people travel.
