The seed for starting a travel business was planted on my first trip to Alaska over 20 years ago. My husband and I had sabbaticals from our engineering jobs in Silicon Valley, and we spent more than a month traveling throughout the state. Planning every detail of that trip was one of the most fun and fulfilling projects I ever had, and I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the travel industry, specializing in adventure travel. Shortly afterwards we started a family, and I immediately realized the need for travel advisors who really understand families. Today my clients are of all ages, and enjoy all types of travel.
