I traveled to Spain for the first time with my Spanish Club after graduating high school. Before I left, my grandma hugged me goodbye and whispered, “Enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” That moment ignited the spark and desire to make travel a constant in my life. Fast forward two years later, and I was back in Spain’s sparkling Catalan city of Barcelona for a summer-long marketing internship with a cycling startup and international business course with CEA. Luckily this was just the start for me pursuing my passion for travel, words and people.

I traded in Cava and Paella to finish my bachelor’s degree in Cross-Cultural Communication and Journalism, Advertising and Media Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Clearly Cava was still on my mind when I returned home, because after going abroad I started working as a wine concierge and marketing assistant for another startup in the states. Prior to graduating college during a pandemic, I was lucky enough to cross a collection of countries and cities off my travel bucket-list – Spain, The Netherlands, France, The Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico, and even Morocco to name a few.

I truly believe that travel is the best way to gain perspective and that “when you arrive in a place, you become part of that place.” After college I continued learning and sharing stories about new places in the world along with the new person it shaped me into while I worked for a travel technology company as a travel editor for digital and print publications. One day, I’d love to put my passion for travel, words and people to use and write a book about my travels in my 20s.

Milwaukee is a great city on a great lake in the Midwest I call home and now I’m living the desert dream. I picked my new place to call home in May 2021 when I moved to Phoenix, Arizona with my chihuahua named Mario. When I’m not working, traveling or writing about traveling, you can find me hiking, biking, baking or hanging out with friends. I also love reading a good memoir book and listening to live music outdoors!
