My first international trip was to Ireland at age eight. Every year since, I’ve been back to see family and get to know more of my heritage and the country. I’ve fallen in love with the people, the scenery, the music and even Irish soda bread.
These trips ignited a passion for travel and experiencing new cultures, and after university I moved to Florence, Italy and worked for a company which helped young adults travel and experience different countries all over Europe.
Upon returning to Boston, I wanted to continue to share my love of travel with others and I’m excited to be a UK and Ireland specialist for Audley, especially because of my personal connection to the region.
When I am not gallivanting around the world, I have fun in Boston by kayaking on the Charles River, taking photography lessons and exploring new restaurants with friends.
I'll never forget when…
I managed to arrive for my whisky and cheese-pairing experience in Killarney a day late but Patrick, the bar owner, stopped what he was doing and brought me in for an impromptu session anyway. He sat down with me and explained the whiskey-making process, the different tastes and his personal preferences and made me try a whiskey and chocolate together after I mentioned I had a sweet tooth. He would have been totally justified in turning me away but instead was so warm and hospitable, so animated in his delivery and so knowledgeable as we walked through the pairings. I was left feeling quite humbled.
