Why Travel Beyond

The people at Travel Beyond have become like family to me.  The level of expertise amongst our team is truly astonishing, as is their passion for all-things travel.  We are also fortunate to work with the best clients, who share this passion for travel and the appreciation for the craft that is ‘luxury travel planning’.


BA in Communication Studies, Gustavus Adolphus College

Career History

I worked in the consumer marketing department at a large PR firm in Minneapolis as my first job out of college. While there, I had the pleasure of working on unique marketing campaigns for some well-known brands such as Coca Cola and Chevy.  My next career opportunity brought me to a local quartz countertop manufacturer where I worked in the marketing department as a Senior Communications Specialist. In 2008, I received an opportunity to join Travel Beyond and haven’t looked back since.

Where I’ve Lived Abroad

In college, I was fortunate enough to enjoy a study abroad program in New Zealand and Australia.

Most Memorable Travel Experiences

Jumping out the side of a tiny airplane while sky diving in Australia was definitely a memorable moment! I still can’t believe I actually jumped.

My first game drive in Botswana. I had an idea of what to expect (I guess that comes with working at Travel Beyond), but was completely overwhelmed and amazed by what it was actually like on safari. Being right there, so close to the animals in their natural habitat, and so far away from home was such a memorable experience for me. I will never forget it.

My Most Recent Trip

My most recent trip was to Kenya where I spent two weeks on safari with a group of wonderful Travel Beyond clients and two coworkers.
