I was fortunate to have the opportunity to spend my senior year of college abroad in Germany. I spent that year exploring much of Eastern and Western Europe. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Tourism Management, after writing a thesis entitled Literary Tourism.
After two internships with the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida I decided to return to Buffalo to be near family and look for a job in the world of tourism and hospitality.
I worked for a time in leisure travel, moved to corporate humanitarian travel, and jumped back into leisure when I missed it too much! I hope to be at my current agency for a very long time.
I've always immensely enjoyed writing as a hobby, and I'm excited to share my thoughts, advice, and experiences as a full time travel professional.
Be sure to read more about how and why I got started, as well as some insight into my blog name here.
I am also a contributing writer to UpstartNY.or, an online magazine highlighting and celebrating the entrepreneurship and current resurgence of Buffalo and the surrounding community. You can check out some of the work I've done for them here.
I am lifelong resident of Buffalo NY.
