Get to Know Our Founder

Updated: Sep 3, 2020

Hi my fellow travelers drooling over endless wanderlust instagram profiles and dreamy Pinterest pins… Welcome to the club!


I started off just like you, with an innate desire to explore far-flung places where I could experience the authentic culture. Then I took that big leap to finally journey abroad and saw all my fantasies come wildly true beyond belief. I never let go of that passion and when the time was right, I let it carry me forward to start Creative Edge Travel where I now lead immersive trips in Italy to help people connect with locals on a deeper level and have a more meaningful travel experience.

First trip to Italy?


In 2011, I went to Cortona to study art and teach 2nd graders (stepping inside the classroom is definitely an immersive experience!). Some of the partners featured in our itineraries are local friends I met on that first trip!


Favorite experience in Italy?


Picking cherries in the countryside with an 87 year old couple and their son- it was so simple but so special to take part in that age-old tradition!

Favorite Italian dish?


There is SO much variety. I’m always trying something new, but a go-to classic is homemade spaghetti with a spicy garlic-tomato sauce and fresh parmesan! Then there’s ricotta and spinach ravioli with a walnut cream sauce…& the tortellini in a cream and prosciutto sauce with peas…ok so I can’t pick just one!
