Nora grew up outside of Philadelphia hearing tales of her parents’ journeys in the early days of international travel. They crossed the Atlantic leisurely by steamship and continued their journeys throughout Europe over multiple summers. After a spontaneous backpacking trip around Europe in 1972, Nora, too, was hooked. Upon returning to the States, she immediately began her career in travel, typing itineraries and delivering airline tickets. Over the past four decades, Nora’s career has evolved with industry changes - from basic reservationist, to agency owner, to today, where as a luxury travel advisor, she devotes her time to handcrafting every aspect of her clients’ dream vacations.
In 2013, after living in New York City and working in the world of publishing, Nora’s daughter, Liz, returned to Atlanta and joined the team, bringing a revived passion for adventure, design, culture, and local culinary experiences. Whether jumping off the cliffs in Anguilla or sampling the local flavors of Cambodia, Liz skillfully curates unique experiences for our younger clientele, who may be experiencing the benefits of using a travel advisor for the first time!
