Christina would love to talk about travel with you! She developed a serious case of wanderlust at a very young age, and quickly filled up her passport studying abroad in Spain and subsequently backpacking across Europe. She was hooked on the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of travel. As luck would have it, she married someone who was equally enamored with travel, and they continued seeing the world, visiting Japan, Thailand, Mexico, and all over the USA. In a spectacular turn of events, Christina’s husband was offered the chance to move abroad with his company. With three young children in tow, they hopped on a plane and embarked on the journey of a lifetime. Seven years later, having lived in England, Canada, and Australia – and having traveled to 15 countries more – they finally moved back to Christina’s hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to put down some roots.

Some favorite family adventures over the years include exploring the halls of Buckingham Palace, riding camels through the desert of Dubai, touring the souks of Morocco, island hopping in Fiji, learning to make gelato in Italy, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and soaring above Mt. Cook, New Zealand in a private plane.

Years of planning family adventures all over the globe gave Christina the desire to become a travel advisor and help others design travel experiences to create lasting memories. As a busy mom herself, she knows that your time is precious. She aims to simplify the travel planning process for you, saving you countless hours of time and hassle. Using her organizational and project management skills from a prior career in corporate finance and promotion marketing, she is ready to work with you to create a custom family trip, romantic retreat, girlfriends’ getaway, or a bucket list adventure you won’t soon forget.
