How long have you been traveling?

I have been traveling weekly for about 10 years now.

How do you avoid getting sick?

I wash my hands a lot and carry alcohol wipes to clean my devices. A bit OCD, but it works.

Aisle or window?


Tips on how to nap on a plane?

I don’t!

What’s your favorite airline and hotel?

American Airlines and Marriott, preferably The Ritz Carlton.

What is your favorite/worst thing about traveling?

The best: experiencing new places, restaurants and spending time with my friends in the cities where I travel. The worst: I miss my furry baby, my own bed and regular hair dryer.

What is your longest trip to date?

16 days, Chicago to Singapore to Dubai to London to Chicago.

The saying goes ‘you don’t really know someone till you’ve traveled together.’ What’s your take?

It is very telling how a person travels. You can definitely pick up on personality traits

Do you have a travel horror story?

Business trip to Dubai via London. I arrived in London after an 8-hour flight to be told I could not continue to Dubai on my passport because it expired in 5 months and 25 days. I missed the 6-month rule, so I had to change flights and get to the US Embassy for an emergency passport. Very costly and when I arrived in London, I had to go into a 10-hour meeting without sleeping for 48 hours.

Favorite destination and why?

The Caribbean. So many faves: beautiful water, beaches and more. I am a beach girl at heart.
