Stephanie’s earliest memory flying over the Egyptian Pyramids instilled a passion for travel that continues to this day. A childhood of living globally, speaking multiple languages, and soaking up the culture worldwide inspires her daily life. After working for the Sundance Institute & Festival, Stephanie completed the Boston University Culinary Program and treasures her time spent over the stove with Jacques Pepin and Julia Child.
Based on the North Shore of Chicago, Stephanie has been traveling the world with her two children and husband for the past twenty years to feed their souls.
Stephanie is a detail-oriented Luxury Travel Advisor who specializes in both family and couple travel with a strong focus on authentic and noteworthy experiences that create memories of a lifetime.

Stephanie is an active travel photographer and proud member of the Lyric Opera of Chicago Women’s Board, Governing Member Ambassador of the Brookfield Zoo, Lurie Children’s Founders Board, Lake Forest Garden Club, and a Sustaining Member, Women’s Board of Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital.
