My first memory of travel
I visited my grandparents every summer, I remember packing my suitcase before school was out so I could be ready when the day came. It wasn’t far to travel but the idea of packing a suitcase and the excitement of travel was what I remember.

My first trip abroad
It was a girls trip to Barcelona, Spain. We explored, shopped and had unlimited amounts of seafood and paellas – it was a wonderful trip.

Recent trips
Australia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Iceland, Croatia, Germany, Netherlands, France, Dubai, Thailand and Italy.

My favorite place to travel
London and Kenya as I have family there and it’s always great to see them – both of these places hold great memories.

My dream vacation
Bali has been on my MUST visit list for a while now and I cannot wait to unplug and relax.

My ultimate survival bag for international flights includes
Headphones, iPad loaded with games and some good magazines.

My travel tips to make a long flight seem not quite as long
I can get pretty restless on long flights, so if anyone has great tips please let me know.

My favorite destination we sell
New Zealand. Even though I haven’t been to this country yet, it strikes me as somewhere I will fall in love with immediately. My colleagues always say “it’s about the journey and not the destination” and I cannot wait to start my journey.

My best travel advice
Don’t sweat the little things as they can put you in a bad mood and can ruin your vacation. Some things are completely out of your control.

If I weren't in the travel industry, I would be busy making a living doing
Volunteering in different locations around the world and giving my time to people who need it most.

I fell in love with travel
When I returned from the most amazing safari in Kenya staying at luxury lodges, I saw the Big Five and it was out of this world.

What I love most about my job
Seeing clients excited about their trips.

My happy place
Loitoktok, Kenya

My favorite travel companion
My husband - He's easy going, loves to relax and we have great fun together. I'd love to take a trip with Barack & Michelle Obama, somewhere relaxing so we would have plenty of time to speak and debate. What I do when I'm not at work I enjoy working out, going for morning runs in Prospect Park in Brooklyn and meeting up with friends whenever possible.
