I have spent most of my life adventuring and exploring. I’ve always had a passion for travelling, even as a little girl was looking through travel catalogues and road tripping with my family. I have had the opportunity to visit over 30 countries worldwide, which has led to developing a passion for travel guidance and helping others see how to travel differently with a focus on wellness. I am a true wanderlust yogini and global adventurer!

Professional Background

I graduated from University in Canada with a Bachelors of Commerce degree specializing in Tourism Management and was quickly put to work in a fast paced, demanding corporate job within the Tourism and Concierge industry working for an elite lifestyle concierge company that was partnered with many Fortune 500 companies. I have worked in various capacities focusing on Recruitment, Customer Experience, Marketing and was a Virtual Personal Concierge for many VIP clientele as well as a Certified Travel Consultant.

My Story

After over 10 years of the “daily grind”,  I experienced “corporate burnout”, and luckily learnt to de-stress through the powers of yoga and meditation and living a more holistic balanced lifestyle focusing on mindfulness. I realized something was not aligned and decided to follow my heart and dreams choosing to live the life that I had envisioned!

A life changing yoga retreat to Costa Rica in which I learnt self-care, is when I began my desire to share this journey with others.  I left the corporate world and returned to live temporarily in Costa Rica ; travelling the country and exploring various wellness destinations and connecting and guiding others.

Definitely an authentic Wellness getaway and experience! Beautiful picturesque zen surroundings, doing yoga or meditation daily, eating healthy good local fresh meals, being comfortable and cozy, outdoor activities, being around water and nature, amenities with a wellness focus, spa treatments and of course lots of local adventures and explorations!

2.   What is your most favorite travel memory?

Road tripping with my family travelling across the US in our family station wagon exploring local zoos & aquariums, rivers, mountains, beaches and theme parks. The ultimate fam jam roadtrip adventure, there is nothing better than jumping in the car and exploring the path unknown!

3.   What is the scariest trip you have ever taken?

By far that first solo trip to Costa Rica that ultimately became the most life changing experience!  I would love to tell you more about my personal unique journey and experience and why you should take a solo trip in a personal consultation!

4.   Stranded on an island… what are three things you would pack?

A Journal and pen, My travel Essential oils (of course doTERRA being my favourite!) and a stack of Nat Geo magazines so I could look at all the beautiful photos!

5.   Finish this sentence: If I couldn’t ever travel again, I would….

Totally Dream as if I could!  Look at travel photography, magazines and read all about travel.  And of course help to inspire others to travel to the place of their dreams.

6.  Where are your favorite places to travel?

My absolute favorite destination around the world are Bali, Indonesia; Ilha Grande, Brazil and of course all over Costa Rica (Lake Arenal being my favourite area!). I’ve now spent four winters in Costa Rica and there is a reason I continue to go back and love it! All these places all offer raw beauty, wellness options and adventures.
