Global reach. Local detail
I work alone but alongside and with the combined wisdom of my colleagues at Departure Lounge, our supplier and hotelier partners, and the worldwide suppliers and partners of the elite invitation-only Virtuoso network. These relationships provide both industry level insights as well as local, on-the-ground knowledge, service and access at your destination to give you unrivaled access, experiences and amenities that are unavailable to other travelers.
Constantly updated expertise
Along with site visits to destinations and properties, I meet with suppliers, tourism boards, and vendors daily. When I am not traveling to meet them in person, I spend roughly several hours each week on calls, Zooms or webinars, updating my knowledge about specific locales, properties, travel restrictions and protocols, trends, and adventures. See below for some of the certifications and specialities I have developed.
