I’m a foodie, wife and mother to two incredible, grown people! Adventures of Empty Nesters began as a blog when the kids left the nest and I decided to take a new adventure with my life. Read more and get to know us here.

My travels are eclectic and perfect for couples, singles or small groups.

I love exploring both the U.S. and the rest of this big, beautiful world to discover what is unique, interesting and innovative within each destination. I share these stories as a way to open doors to new ideas and experiences and inspire everyone to find their version of an exciting and adventurous life.

Collaborating is My Favorite.

I partner with luxury brands and media who are socially responsible, protect our planet and connect with cultures and community. To see the companies I work with, click here.
