“I recently moved to the United States. My history, my upbringing, and my culture are all part of me, and they are what I bring to my role in the travel industry.

I take great pride in knowing that I put my heart and soul into creating memorable travel!”

“Long ago, I stopped worrying about what people thought of me, and I chose to live an authentic life. As a result, my life is now filled with creativity, imagination, love, adventure, and kindness. I try to bring my passion for learning, whether it’s about literature, art, history, culture, or ordinary folks, into every trip I plan. I am enthusiastic about creating travel that creates an extraordinary experience.”

“The phrase mise en place has stayed with me since I attended culinary school. Literally translated, it is “putting in place” or “setting up.” What it means, though, is setting yourself up for success by being prepared, mindful, organized and thinking things through from start to finish. I choose to apply that to all aspects of life, from cooking to travel. I am most authentically myself when I can set in place experiences that bring success and joy to all.”

Lauren was born in San Francisco and raised in Sonoma County’s glorious wine country.

Joleen

“For me, being authentic is a fluid way of life, a way I choose to live every day. I am tied to my roots in New Zealand, and “The Kiwi Way,” but I easily mesh and blend into American culture. Travel is about adapting, about being open to new experiences, while remaining true to your authentic self. When you’re aware of your true nature, it goes with you wherever you travel, enriches your travel, and allows you a fresh awareness of life.”

Joleen was born and raised in New Zealand, and she has lived in several distinctive places. She believes travel is an engine for good.

Jorie

“My authentic self is compassionate, and I strive to bring that quality to everything I do. I plan travel with a deep awareness of my clients’ needs and desires. I genuinely care about their experience. (This probably comes from my “Midwest nice.”) This aligns well with our destinations because most of them are about dipping into another culture while creating a “feel-at-home” experience. I always want our clients to feel warm, comfortable, and cared for.”

Jorie was born and raised in the Midwest.

“My true self is that of a global citizen. I have lived and studied in France, the Middle East, and Beirut. I majored in Colloquial Arabic and Swedish at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I love to cook and experiment with various types of cuisine. Global music is my passion, and I founded a center whose mission it is to immerse children in the world of music. The intersection of cultures, cuisine, and art is a joy, and my goal is to bring that joy to others.”

Lonna was born and raised in San Jose, California and now lives, and loves, the bounty of Sonoma County.

Jennifer

“I am thrilled by Authentic Vacations’ specialized Irish travel. I play the cello, and one of my favorite pieces of music is Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides (Fingal’s Cave) Overture. It is about the composer’s boat trip there—you can almost feel the salt spray on your skin in the opening measures! Ireland always inspires me to remember how beautiful nature is.”

Jennifer was born and raised in Colorado and considers music, all kinds of it, to be an authentic blessing.
