Why Travel Beyond

I love to travel and wanted to help others achieve once in a lifetime trips to once in a lifetime places! I knew I wanted to find a place to work that I could feel happy every single day. It honestly doesn’t feel like work at this point when you love what you do and I feel very fortunate to work with such an amazing company and team.

Education & Career History

I graduated in 2014 from the University of Wisconsin Eau-Claire with a degree in Communications and minor in Event Planning. For a few years after graduation, I worked in the property management field from single family homes to downtown rentals.

Most Memorable Travel Experience

As of now, my most memorable travel experience would have to be my honeymoon in Singapore and the Maldives. During our layover in Singapore, my now husband and I did a side car excursion through all parts of the city – the new, the old and everything in between. It was a great way to see the city from a different view point and in the short amount of time we had. Even though we were there less than 24 hours – it was one of the highlights of our trip.

In the Maldives, we wanted to be out on the clear blue water, so we planned a private jet ski safari! We were able to go out on the water with our private guide and see dolphins swimming and dancing on all sides of us. For lunch, we snorkeled around a private island and I have never felt more at ease in that moment. Being one with nature like that is a moment I will never forget.

My Most Recent Trip

My colleague and I recently returned from Botswana and Zimbabwe in April 2023. We visited properties all along the Okavango Delta and Linyanti Concession and ended our two-week adventure with a couple nights in Victoria Falls! This trip was so special and different from any of my other trips to Africa. The water activities in the Delta were endless and a unique way to experience the animals. We really took the time to slow down and immerse in our environment. For me, the highlights of this trip were our scenic helicopter ride over the Okavango Delta and seeing Victoria Falls in person.
