Travel is my first love and have worked in the industry for over twenty years. I took a 10-year break from travel to hone my culinary skills as a chef. I am now combining travel and my second love; cooking, regularly attending cooking schools abroad. These trips include Provence in the south of France, Tuscany in Italy, Yucatan in Mexico, and South American Cooking in Buenos Aires Argentina. As a travel agent I have sailed multiple cruises from the largest ships to 40 passenger gullets in Greece. My passion for exploring the unknown has taken me to China, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and the whole of Europe. I am originally from Dearborn, Michigan, a resident of Fayetteville, Georgia since 1994 and an active member of the Fayette Chamber of Commerce.
