Jackie’s travel style is a mix of five-star meets free spirit, and her mission is to travel the way she lives – and inspire her clients to do the same.

With wellness guiding her life, Jackie is passionate about infusing wellness concepts into luxury travel itineraries. She believes that “wellness is wholeness” and creates opportunities for restoration and exceptional experiences. Jackies specializes in designing trips that are both transformative and rejuvenating. What wellness looks like for each traveler is a balance she and her clients strike together.

Jackie’s favorite ways to familiarize herself with a new locale include staying at unique hotels that offer a sense of place, connecting with her guides, meeting locals and other travelers, and exploring culinary traditions. As a native Chicagoan, she is no stranger to fantastic food and five-star city getaways. Still, at the same time, she is always dreaming about those extra special trips – like hiking from refugio to refugio in the Italian Dolomites, the nostalgia of Belmond’s rail journeys, or the life-altering magic of an African Safari.

FAVORITE QUOTE
“And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of  awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, in dimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.”
