What’s your favourite travel destination in the world?
Working in the travel industry makes this question very difficult but if I have to pick one, I would say Paris since that is where my incredible life partner asked me to marry him.

Plan everything or keep it flexible?
Flexibility is the key to enjoying the unexpected pleasures of life.  There have been countless trips that were derailed for one reason or another but those trips turned out to be the best trips ever.

Which three guests would be at your ultimate dinner party?
Lizzo, Tina Fey and Amanda Gorman.  That would be one fun and interesting dinner!

Fancy restaurant meal or homecooked comfort food?
Home cooked comfort food made by my daughter and me.  Our favourite is ratatouille.

If I wasn’t part of Travelport’s SLT, I’d be…
Coaching a girl’s high school lacrosse team.
