A few years ago I retired from a career that I was wholeheartedly passionate about. More than that… it WAS my passion. For 10 years I dedicated my life to being the best athlete I could be in the sport of Track and Field. That life is something I am truly grateful for. I had the opportunity to compete, travel the world, and wake up every day knowing I was following my passion and able to call that a career.
One of the things I always share with people when they ask what it was I loved about that career is the part about seeing the world. It is truly one of the blessings about participating in a sport that competes all over the globe. After visiting 6 continents and competing in over 30 different countries, it’s easy to get a hunger and appreciation for what the world has to offer and the many amazing places that are out there for us to experience.
Over the last couple of years I have thought long and hard about what else I am passionate about that I can make a career out of. I now know that this is it. I am a Travel Professional. I want to spend my time, energy, and resources helping people achieve their best travel experiences because that is what I know, that is what I love, and that is what I’m good at. I have seen so much of the world and I hope that never ends because it brings me a lot of joy. If I can share that joy with others, and help them create memories of their own they can cherish, then that’s one career I know is perfect for me.
The world is full of amazing places... you should go, and I should plan it.
