After a successful career at one of the highest-rated Platinum Country Clubs in America, I began a new journey with Martha Rhodes Travel, drawing on my creative talents, my passion for travel, and my lifelong desire to be of service to others. Exploring our world has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and that wanderlust for adventure and exploration is still at the core of who I am.
I grew up in Virginia, spending my childhood in Richmond and the Hunt Country of Northern Virginia. My studies focused on architecture and history and I am grateful to have been able to travel widely, making extraordinary memories and building friendships along the way that will last a lifetime.
Whether I was witnessing the Whirling Dervishes in a Mevlevi Sema Ceremony or participating in a sky lantern ceremony in Thailand, learning about Iberian ham from a Cortador de Jamón in Spain or the techniques of glassblowing at Mount St. Helens, enjoying Sunday brunch at The Peninsula Hong Kong or experiencing the spirit of mateship in Australia, my most memorable adventures have all been elevated experiences that have established emotional and meaningful connections between me and the people and places I’ve grown to love.
When I was young I always dreamed of visiting France. Although I had opportunities to visit over the years, I wanted to wait until I was with the right person, so on my first visit to Paris I married my best friend in a rowboat on the Grand Canal of Château de Versailles. As I saw it, if we were embarking on an adventure of a lifetime together, then exchanging vows in a rowboat at such an iconic location seemed right for us. After deferring my first visit for so long, I have now been to France seven times; I consider it my second home, and the friends I’ve made there, well they’re family now.
I look forward to bringing my passion for meaningful travel experiences to assist you in planning your next unique adventure!
