I've always had a wanderlust for exploring different cultures and destinations. My technical background and marketing positions with high tech companies in Silicon Valley allowed me to spread my wings and fuel my passion for travel. I ultimately succumbed to the strong pull of far away lands and started Concierge Vacations Inc.
My interest in Wellness was piqued as I got older and more focused on mindfulness, fitness, healthy eating and spirituality. Wellness Travel doesn't have to mean just yoga and meditation. It involves being active, eating well, and nurturing your mind, body and soul. It can also address specific issues such as weight loss, stress management or ailments which need medically supervised programs. As a certified Well-Being Travel Specialist, I enjoy exploring Wellness destinations, cruises, and resorts worldwide and keeping updated with the latest Wellness trends. I especially love exploring the healing properties of water as I'm drawn to islands and tropical destinations.
I also have a fascination with Southeast Asia and India, not only because it is where I was born and spent my early childhood years but also because it's where the wellness, yoga, and spirituality movement began. I've since gone back and experienced the country both as a local and as a tourist and I've found that the diversity and hospitality of my homeland is unparalleled.
I've always been drawn to the ocean, so I've done quite a few island vacations myself. As a Tahiti Specialist, I find the South Pacific offers incomparable clarity in the water and is only 8 hours from California! I love to combine city and beach destinations so you can see the sites and culminate the trip with a relaxing island break before heading home. Maldives, Seychelles, Mauritius, the islands of Thailand are great examples of this.
Regardless of where in the world your travels may take you, I'm happy to create a customized itinerary so you can focus on enjoying the journey. I love melding culturally immersive VIP experiences with luxury accommodations so you get a feel for all the facets of a country and culture.
