Travel is my life's work and great joy.
I am the founder and owner of ‘TASTE Tour & Travel’ and an Independent Travel Consultant at 'St. Armands Travel'. I have been involved in the tourism industry for over 30 years, specializing in culinary travel, and have organized and led tours to over 40 countries.
My New England and Italian heritage helped inspire my love of food and wine. I believe local culinary experiences are an essential part of any journey, a connection to the land and the people that is as important as the sights themselves.
As your Travel Professional, I offer you my experience as travel agent, guide, tour operator and fellow traveler to make your trip a unique one. Whether I create an individual itinerary for you, book your next getaway or you choose to accompany me on a group journey with fellow explorers, I will be looking out for you from start to finish and help create the memories you will have forever.
Travel is my passion. Are you ready for a journey? Then let's go!
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us.
I am a proud member and supporter of Slow Food and was honored to be a Host Delegate to the inaugural ‘Slow Food Nations’ conference and festival held in Denver in July of 2017.
