Susan started her love affair for travel early in her childhood. She viewed travel as an outlet from everyday life looking forward to her next family vacation. While attending the University of Michigan, Susan lived and studied abroad in London. While living in London, she traveled all throughout Europe which opened her eyes to different cultures, people, languages, and experiences. After college, she earned her J.D. at Chicago Kent College of Law and practiced law for eight years as a prosecutor. She left the legal world to raise her two daughters and pursue her passion for travel by helping others look forward to their next vacation, whether it be a family vacation, bucket list destination, weekend trip, or girl's getaway. Susan is also a health enthusiast. She lives a healthy and active lifestyle and teaches boxing bootcamp classes in her spare time.

Favorite Travel Memory

I don't have a particular favorite travel memory because I love all my travels. My favorite trips are the ones I take with my family. I love spending time with family on vacation making memories, experiencing new adventures, and seeing the world through my children's eyes. My husband and I recently took our daughters to London, Paris, and the South of France which was amazing because it was my girls' first time abroad. However, I do love beach destination trips because it's a time to unwind and reconnect as a family.

Favorite Destination

So hard to choose one when there are so many. My favorite domestic destination is Aspen. I love the fresh air, all the outdoor activities (summer and winter), and the town is filled with great restaurants and shopping. My favorite cities are New York and Paris for the culture, museums, hotels, restaurants, shopping, parks, and history. I love the Caribbean for its crystal blue waters, sunsets, and laid-back atmosphere.

Why I Like to Travel

I love to travel because it inspires me. I love experiencing different places, people, and cultures. Travel provides education, compassion, and inspiration to me. The more I see and experience, the more I want to see and experience.
