Instagram handle



What’s your claim to fame?

I am the founder and host of Toast Meets Jam, an interview series featuring the start-up stories of female founders

Window or aisle?

Aisle – I move around too much!


Beach or mountain?

City surrounded by beach & mountains (sorry if that’s cheating!)


Outdoors or indoors?

Absolutely outdoors


Your ideal vacation?

I live on the beach so I like my vacations to be active. I love exploring new cities especially by bike. That’s my favorite. A good vacation also includes ample of amounts of eating all the local fare (well earned after all of that biking ; )


A book or a magazine to bring on a trip?

I bring my Kindle and load it with at least 1 new non-fiction and 1 new fiction book before the trip


Top three travel essentials you always carry with you?

Water bottle, portable phone charger, extra headphones


What’s a place you’ve been to and fell completely in love with and why?

Cusco, Peru. I’ll never forget the feeling I had flying in over the Andes Mountains. The landscape was so beautiful! Then you land and it is all so incredible – the people, the food, the ruins, the alpacas! Perhaps one of the most magical places I’ve been.
