Director of Operations

I love working on special projects that make our team and our company more productive. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is making sure we set benchmarks for ourselves and measure our progress to keep us focused on the big picture. We are big on goals around here. I like to celebrate our successes and make people feel valued.

MY EXPERTISE:
Researching and improving software systems, designing charts and dashboards to help us better manage our business, and selling trips (especially to Antarctica) whenever I can!

WHY I LOVE WORKING IN TRAVEL:
Since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of exploring the world. I would post pictures around my room and imagine myself in those places. I’ve always had the opinion that we should try to see as much of this beautiful earth as possible because we only have one life to discover it. Working in travel is a dream come true because it brings me one step closer to that goal.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL MOMENT:
Reflecting on my incredible safari experience through Botswana and realizing that I’d never felt so connected to my purpose. I loved seeing first-hand how travel helps to employ the local people and how it helps fund conservation efforts for animals and environments. I’ve never been so grateful to work in this industry.

MY FAVORITE QUOTES:
“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” -Pablo Picasso
