About Me...

Do you ever wish you could capture a feeling, put it in a tiny box and revisit time and time again? I remember waking up before the sun came up when I was seven years old. I put my clothes on, brushed my hair but it all felt different; more alive. We were embarking on a flight to the exotic land of Orlando’s Disney World!

I didn’t come from a family who journeyed on African safaris or European Spring Breaks; it was more amusement parks and outlet malls. It didn’t matter, I was beside myself with excitement wherever we went. That feeling of peaking anticipation has stayed with me and returns with every trip I take and luckily the destinations have gotten a lot more interesting.

I share that same enthusiasm when a client embarks on their journey. The morning of a client’s private cooking class, I am elated awaiting to hear what they made. I’m up early awaiting the bright, beautiful photos of my client’s iceberg trek. I can’t wait for the video of the deep dive in Belize or the bungee jumping in New Zealand. I love to feel their excitement from across the pond when they are met with sparkling wine and welcome note in their hotel room after a long day of connecting flights.

Just as my travels and experiences can inspire and energize others, my client’s experiences give me the same unadulterated joy I felt grabbing my suitcase for Disney at seven years old. I love being the connection to a person’s journey that gives them that unique feeling of pure joy that is so hard to recreate…until the next trip!

    Easy, Helpful, and BEAUTIFUL

    Meredith made our honeymoon beautiful AND easy! We were so busy with COVID wedding drama and plans so the last thing on our agenda was our honeymoon. Meredith planned an absolutely fantastic trip! She remained transparent and communicative-- and most importantly-- very patient and flexible when we asked her to go back to the drawing board numerous times. She's very knowledgable and has extensive networks. She's willing to tailor anything and everything to your tastes and budget. And if you are clueless, her suggestions are so helpful. We had an amazing time thanks to her! Highly recommend!

    Planning ALL my travels with MRT

    I love working with MRT. She listened to what we wanted but helped us brainstorm on some better ways to go about our trip pacing. Loved all the hotels, tours, drivers, dining recommendations, cooking classes etc. she plans travel for a few friends and family members now and they have all been just as happy as we have been
