I began by helping family and friends plan their vacations. As I'm a stickler for detail and my inclination to research way more than was needed, more and more people turned to me for help. My passion for travel grew after I took my first cruise in 2009. I loved the inclusive feel and the ability to visit multiple destinations while only unpacking once. I was raving about my most recent cruise at work one day and a co-worker said, "Why aren't you a travel agent?" And that was my ah ha moment.
Being a San Francisco Bay Area resident, you can find me exploring Napa and Sonoma Valley wineries, relaxing on a beach with a book or attending local sporting events and concerts.
I am an independent travel consultant with an insatiable fernweh (wanderlust). I created Sunset Travel Consulting to bring you the kind of travel that I love. Exciting, breathtaking and full of personal experiences that will leave you your own case of fernweh and maybe with some leftover sand in your suitcase.
