the founder and luxury travel advisor behind DeSalvio Travel.
I became a travel advisor because travel absolutely changed my life.
In high school and even in college, I was painfully shy and introverted. I lacked the confidence to try new things and struggled to get out of my comfort zone.
But that all changed with a life-changing trip to Italy.
Inspired by my travels, I moved to the Middle East to become an English teacher. I learned how to navigate rooms of people from all different cultures and I learned how to be brave.
I traveled solo to the Maldives and China, hiked the Everest trail, swam with sharks - each time surprising myself that a shy girl from the middle of nowhere upstate NY could jump into these fantastic adventures.
I grew confident and courageous because of the people I met, the experiences I had, and the cultures that taught me new lessons.
After traveling to nearly 30 countries, I became a travel advisor because I love helping my clients experience the transformational power of being in a new place.
My business is affiliated with the best and most respected travel agency in the country. Through their wonderful partnerships, I have access to the most exclusive hotels and travel experiences in the world.
I love helping my clients plan adventurous Honeymoons and family trips they'll never forget!
