THE CURATED TRAVEL COLLECTION

Let me plan your ultimate dream vacation. Whether it be a family holiday in the jungles of Costa Rica or a romantic Hawaiian getaway, I know how to make it happen.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller

Magical moments and inspiring places make lasting memories. Whether swimming with sea turtles, hiking through a lush rainforest, lounging by a pristine swimming pool, or simply having a conversation over a delicious meal, the best stories come from holidays. At The Curated Travel Collection, we know this to be true from our own travels–and are experts at crafting life-changing experiences for our clients.

Experiences worth remembering

Discuss Your Travel Preferences

Via a phone interview with me, you’ll share where you’ve stayed before, and what you’re looking for now. Whether you’re seeking a smaller boutique hotel or an established large resort, unparalleled helicopter tours or world-class surfing classes, I take the time to discover what’s important to you and others joining you on your journey.

Review Curated Itinerary Options

Based on what you’ve shared, your designated agent will provide hand-selected and customized options for your trip–including where to stay, what to eat based on your dietary requirements, and which activities will satisfy your curiosities and passions. Whether you’re seeking adrenaline-inducing experiences or simply looking for some much-needed downtime and massage by a hotel pool, our detail-oriented agents work to finesse the perfect itinerary.

Ready, Set, Go!

Once you’ve confirmed your ideal itinerary, our agents confirm bookings and reservations and make sure you have everything you need to embark on your trip of a lifetime. As your go-to concierge, I’m just a phone call or text away from handling additional changes to the schedule through the duration of your stay.
