A small-town girl from Canada, I've always travelled and worked abroad as often as I can. After working on my language skills (French and Spanish) and picking up a few university degrees (education, psychology, and graphic design), I packed my suitcases and ran off to New York City, where my love of boutique hotels was born. My next big move was to London, where I organised trips for jet-setting executives by day and planned my own European adventures by night. An encounter with the original Mr & Mrs Smith travel guides eventually led me (via Toronto and New York City) to my dream job in our Los Angeles office. At the end of the day, I believe travel is all about the amazing people you meet along the way.

Earplugs and eye mask for the plane, and a dozen pairs of shoes; I like to be prepared for all possible footwear occasions.
I wish I was...
In St Barths walking along the beach or swimming in the natural pools on the quiet side of the island. I’d head back to Le Sereno for a quick shower before dinner with friends at Tamarin or Bonito (and then a little boogie at Le Ti St Barth).
