If you learn something new every day, you can teach something new every day.


Having been born and raised right outside Washington, DC, attended school in Philadelphia, and lived and worked in NYC and its suburbs for the past 25 years, I have a strong connection to the Northeast Corridor.  I have been forever curious, earning a degree in Japanese while simultaneously studying Decision Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania; and a long career at Martha Stewart Living honed my techniques for fastidious research, in-depth analysis, and passionate storytelling across a wide array of subjects.  As a mother of two teenagers and former Girl Scout leader, I have discovered countless ways to have fun while traveling and feel that kinesthetic learning – hands-on, participatory, active involvement using all the senses – creates for the most engaging experiences.  My most memorable travel adventures include looking, listening, and tasting what makes each place unique.  

Every place has multiple layers – its initial foundation, important milestones in time, its current inhabitants, and its context within the wider world.  While I may be new to officially leading tours, I have been immersed in NY life for a quarter-century and have much that I have learned that I would love to share with others.  Most importantly, I love to have fun and meet new and interesting people – so let’s connect!
