Senior Luxury Travel Advisor
Melissa is a consummate world traveler having traveled all over the world and has lived in Hong Kong and Beijing. Her personal motto is “Have passport, Will Travel.” She has a vast knowledge and experience of domestic and faraway destinations particularly the Nordics, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. Her in-depth knowledge, experience and passion for the Nordic region has earned her a place on Travel + Leisure Magazine’s “A-List” where she is the recommended travel advisor for Nordic travel planning.
Melissa is passionate and enthusiastic about designing all details of her clients’ trips from pre-travel media viewing lists, providing concierge services to creating during-travel recommended tasting lists from the destination’s local and unique foods. She incorporates local experiences and flavors into her trip planning so that clients can have an immersive experience and gain a “feel” of the destination.
When not flying off to further her knowledge and experience of a destination, Melissa can be found researching all things Nordic and streaming the latest Nordic series while eating Swedish sour candy.
My Insider Travel Tip
I love to check the local tourist board websites to learn about any new openings or events/festivals that might be upcoming. These sites can be a wealth of knowledge with insider information not available anywhere else.

My family and I were so very impressed with Melissa’s depth of knowledge, attention to details and willingness to work with us. Melissa was determined and unwavering in her support of our visit to Scandinavia by curating our itinerary based on her advice around local experiences. Her ability to reconfigure our trip details and availability while we were abroad to make sure that we had the best possible experience was key to making it a truly memorable family vacation!
