My grandmother still always tells me “Aproveita quando poderes” which is Portuguese for “Try new things while you have the chance.”And that’s what I have been doing my whole life...especially while traveling.Travel has always a passion of mine and it was a high school class trip to Spain and Morocco that made me want to make a career out of it.While studying at Johnson & Wales University, I took advantage of every study abroad opportunity. I spent a summer studying eco-tourism in Guatemala (now my favorite destination) and lived in Switzerland for a semester, studying international hospitality and marketing (and took advantage of traveling to every nearby country).After graduation, I joined Thomson Safaris, an African safari tour operator. I am currently a Product Manager for Collette, offering tours to all 7 continents on the globe, and am responsible for the design and creation of Collette's tours in Africa, India, Arabian Peninsula, Greece & Eastern Mediterranean.So far I have pinned Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, Poland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, UK, Greece, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Kenya, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, United Arab Emirates, Oman, India and many of the United States onto my map. I am always looking for my next travel opportunity, to get lost in a new, unfamiliar place, find a hidden gem, and “aproveitar.”
