After graduating from Michigan State University in 1998 and doing a month-long tour of Europe, Sandi realized she had found her passion in traveling. Since then, she has cultivated this fervor by exploring the world as much as possible. Living abroad in both London and Copenhagen for 6 years allowed her to travel the world extensively and shaped her decision to move out of the accounting/finance arena and develop a career in travel.
Sandi loves to visit and explore new countries and loves sharing these memorable experiences with those who travel with her. She visited her 60th country at the end of 2017, and there is no slowing down in sight!
Besides travel, Sandi’s passions include photography, fine dining, wine, hiking, and adventure. She constantly tries to incorporate as much of this as possible into her personal travel. As a result, she is a consummate source of knowledge on the hottest restaurants and hidden gems in each city. “Go where the locals go” is something she takes to heart. She feels lucky to be able to work with discerning clients who value this expertise and to help them plan their family trips abroad, couple getaways, and create memories of a lifetime.
