Escorting tours for more than 20 years

I must have been born under a wandering star! I started life in South Carolina but moved to Brazil when I was just 18 months old. From that point on, I've just kept on going. While I've lived mostly on the East Coast and Texas in the US, it's the West and Southwest, along with the magnificent National Parks in that area that I specialize in. I love the history, the culture and the stories of the people who settled these areas, from the Native Americans to the melting pot of nationalities who make up the landscape today. And most especially, I love the stunning beauty and variety of our National Parks which have been so fortunately preserved for us to enjoy. When I'm not traveling, I serve on the Board of Directors of the New School in the Heights, a school for emotionally challenged children in Houston, and visit with my own children and grandchildren. And to make sure they continue the wandering tradition, I've already started taking my grandchildren on tours in the National Parks!
