I lived in Boston, Mexico City, and Geneva, Switzerland all before high school.
While living in Switzerland I was lucky enough to travel throughout Europe on the weekends. Taking in all the history, learning how to ski, and having the opportunity to travel to Egypt and Lebanon.
I have been traveling almost all my life; I believe it’s in my DNA!

I’ve also spent a lot of time driving across the States. After graduating from Willamette University in Salem, I started my career in travel. I began working for agencies in Berkeley and Palo Alto, California, before coming to Oregon. I have been working at Willamette International Travel since June of 1983.
It’s hard for me to choose my favorite place, although I am partial to Europe after spending so much time there while growing up.
Everywhere I go I enjoy seeing the people and cultures as well as history of the area. When I travel I am always reminded how “young” the USA is in comparison to so many countries around the world.
As my family reminds me, I have been to every continent except Antarctica, although there are still other places I’d love to visit.
Working in travel has allowed me to take the “trip of a lifetime” every year.
