From a very young age, Michele developed a love for travel and seeing the world. Having spent her childhood growing up in Colombia, Michele was lucky enough to experience the transformative powers that travel can have from the age of 2 years old. Her parents, both born in Germany, were both fluent in four languages, and taught her the importance of experiencing different cultures and new places. One could say that travel is in Michele’s blood!
Michele is deeply passionate about helping others explore the world, and she is dedicated to making every trip special. Michele believes that travel should be thrilling, highly educational, and life-changing. She understands that travel gives people a sense of purpose, something to look forward to, and the chance the deepen their knowledge of the world through experiencing different cultures, religions, and history firsthand. She hopes that she can create travel experiences that allow her clients to get out of their comfort zone and try things they would never have done at home.
Before becoming a luxury travel advisor, Michele worked in New York City in the incentive side of the travel industry planning high level sales trips for large corporations. During her time as an incentive travel planner, Michele created hundreds of travel programs and meetings, and managed all of the specifics, both big and small, of each trip. She uses her experience and knowledge of the industry to ensure that no details slip through the cracks and that each trip is executed seamlessly.
