Travel has been a driving factor in my personal life and career for over a decade. My specialty, and the area that is most near-and-dear to my heart, is Latin America.

In addition to spending the last decade thoroughly exploring South and Central America, I have also been lucky enough to travel through Europe, Asia, and a bit of Africa. I have now visited 41 countries, and that number continues to grow every year!

I have been an avid traveler since my first trip abroad – a year spent in Chile as a high school exchange student, where I became fluent in Spanish and enamored with Latin American culture. After graduating from high school, my love for travel continued to grow as I took a gap year and backpacked around Europe and Southeast Asia. While in college, I went on a few international trips, before embarking on a 6-month long backpacking trip through Central America post-graduation.

When I travel, I enjoy exploring local markets, trying foods that are specific to the region, and seeing live cultural performances as much as possible. Being able to plan luxury vacations with Scott Dunn is a dream come true for me, as it allows me to combine my knowledge and love of travel with my passion for service.

My hot picks

My top tips

  • Do a local city or food tour whenever possible, especially on the first full day in a new location. It’s a wonderful way to get tips from a local expert, find hidden gems in the city, and try some incredible delicacies that cannot be found elsewhere.

  • If you are a foodie like me, a few days in Lima is a must. From street food to 25 different Michelin star restaurants, there is truly something for everyone.

  • One of the best things about going south of the equator is that the seasons are reversed. If you love the sun and want to get out of the cold US winter, plan your trip between November and February for some awesome South American sunshine.
