Stephanie’s passion for travel began at a young age, when she had the opportunity to explore various destinations with her family. Today, she maintains a genuine passion for crafting unforgettable, personalized experiences around the globe based on her clients’ specific desires, needs and preferences.
After graduating from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Managerial & Organizational Communications, Stephanie began her professional career in public relations at a five-star, five-diamond luxury resort. There, she realized that her attention to detail, passion for planning, incessant thirst for knowledge and desire to explore worldwide destinations were best suited for a career in travel advising.
Using her experience to plan her own customized travel excursions, Stephanie’s favorite part about her role is discovering her clients’ individual travel goals, then using her knowledge and expertise to craft personalized itineraries that result in extraordinary journeys and lifelong memories for each and every client.
