Describe a typical day

There really is nothing typical about my working day, because every day, hour and minute is different.

Being different is something we embrace. We are unique from other wholesale companies; one aspect being how dedicated our entire team is to working exclusively with our travel professional clients.

Each morning starts by thanking the clients who made new quotes or bookings the day before. Then, throughout the day, staying engaged to ensure all details are exactly what the clients expect.

What is luxury to you?

To me, luxury is a feeling of comfort and convenience, not necessarily opulent or extravagant. I find luxury in personal attention to details, including active listening or making a personal connection with a smile or eye contact from those welcoming us to their hotel or destination.

What do you value most when you travel?

Hospitality is everywhere, so I always appreciate when the locals are receptive and appreciative of having international visitors.

Meeting new people and learning about new destinations is the best takeaway I get from travel.

What do you want people to know about you?

Growing up, our family would relocate every three to four years, so my life and surroundings were never routine. This cycle has followed me into adulthood, and I have now been in the same house for over five years, finally!

But I always like to change up my interests and projects. If things start to become stagnant or repetitive, I will start to make changes and try something new.
