I have loved all things travel from a very young age. Studying other cultures fascinated me, which led me to the Catholic University of America where I studied international business. While there I spent a semester in Italy and got the chance to travel extensively throughout Europe.
After university I decided to travel some more and this time headed off to Brazil to visit friends. When there, I fell in love with the country and returned twice more to explore the jungles and beaches and experience the local cuisine.
I decided travel simply had to be a part of my career and Audley was just the place to work to help others feel that same excitement that I did. My first trip with Audley was to Peru and Brazil, which gave me a deeper understanding of these countries and a drive to share my experiences with others.

I'll never forget when…
One night, as I was reading in the outside lounge at the Inkaterra Machu Picchu, I heard some rustling in the bushes and watched as two tapirs trundled out of the jungle. They are such elusive creatures normally that it was a real surprise. To see two of these gentle, shy animals up close felt like such a privilege as I had previously only seen them at the Bronx Zoo when I was growing up. Being there in their habitat and seeing them wander so naturally into view was truly a treat.
