What makes you interesting: I haven’t let motherhood slow me down and I work to inspire other Moms to continue pushing boundaries, even with kids. Travel is one of the most interesting and fun ways to push boundaries. Instead of sitting at an all inclusive, I believe families will have more fun, learn more and transform more by traveling deeply and independently.

What is your most favorite travel memory: Hand’s down my favorite travel memory was the month we all spent in Central America this summer. Too many adventures to pick just one. 

What does “Travel” mean to you: Any time you leave home your traveling. When you get out of your daily routine your traveling. Pushing boundaries and getting out of your comfort zone is traveling. Returning home having learned something or seen something new is travel.

What is the longest period of time that you have been away from home: I’ve lived overseas for stretches of a few months, so I guess that’s my longest time on the road.

What has been the most useful thing you have brought on a trip: It seems simple, but I only travel with facial cleansing cloths (never liquid face wash). This saves room, weight, you can check them, and they double as exfoliant and make up remover wipes.

Best travel advice: Just get out there and travel! Make it a priority. Traveling will enhance your life more than anything else in the world. This is especially hard for busy Moms, but just doing it, leaving home together is the first, and most often the most difficult, step.
