A Word From


When people travel they grow. They become happier, build self confidence, make new memories and experience new things. I have this incredible passion bringing people together with a new destination and experience and I truly love creating memories.

I have traveled as long as I can remember. I’ve visited 60 countries and have taken hundreds of travelers to Europe over the years. I graduated Georgia State in 1998 and knew I would continue to stay in the travel industry. In 1996 I opened up a full service travel agency near Helen, GA and to this very day I truly enjoy matching up the traveler with the right trip.

In 2013 I met with local businesses and officials to come up with ways to bring the wine industry and the tourism industry together. I decided to take a leap of faith and created a wine tour experience. The ingredients were perfect for me, I was in my hometown, it brought together travelers and locals, it was fun, and it included wine! I created an all-inclusive wine tour, bringing out all the best options from previous travel experiences. Travelers enjoyed beautiful scenery, had fun tour guides, enjoyed unique wineries and made wonderful memories.

The tours grew from one bus to multiple buses in just a few short years. I received an award of Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 by the White County Chamber of Commerce. I continue to work hard with my team to strive for a level of excellency and commitment to our travelers and local community.

After a short time, I also realized that there were so many types of travelers and the standard full day wine tour was simply not one size fits all. We added unique and private tours to the lineup. I also learned that the wine tours really do bring people together, and in one year we doubled our private tour business. Families, friends, co-workers and special event tours. We now have found a way to fill every need on private tours, whether its a tour with a wine expert, chocolate tasting or even zip-lining (we recommend doing this FIRST before drinking wine).

I still am a full time travel consultant, and have clients from all over the world. I also look for new ways to grow the wine tours. I love traveling and am always looking for the next greatest adventure. My favorite trip? An Arctic Expedition around Svalbard, Norway. My favorite wine? Let’s just say, I’ve only met a few I haven’t liked!
