Founder and Worldwide Travel Agent
Hey Ya’ll!! Thank you for spending time learning more about our amazing company. To know a little more about me — the Founder: I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend but more than that- I am a jet setter!
Where do you live?
I am based in Charleston, SC but work with clients all over the globe.
Do you have a favorite thing about traveling?
Researching, Eating at new restaurants and staying in Unique hotels!
What’s your favorite food?
Mexican- give me chips, salsa and a margarita and I am a happy girl! PS: Tequila tastes better in Mexico!
Do you have a bucket list trip?
Absolutely!! My dream is a full week in Provence at a cooking school, drinking french wine and channeling my inner Julia Childs.
Do you have advice for travelers?
Sooo much! But my main one- be flexible! Save your pennies and create experiences with your family instead of buying things. Take time out of your life to restore your relationships by traveling together. Show your kids the world and give them a sense of culture and diversity. Travel often, it will renew your spirit and keep you humble.
Do your husband and son love to travel as much as you?
We all live with our suitcases packed and ready to go! Our family is always ready for an adventure.
You call yourself a “foodie”- what does that look like for you in terms of traveling?
It.is.Everything !! I have been known to plan my personal trips around food/restaurants. We love eating our way through new cities. From Florence, to Napa, to Vermont- I research and plan itineraries with breakfast, lunch and dinner in mind. Make sure you catch my famous “Foodie Friday” on our Facebook Page to learn about hidden gems! I love supporting local businesses and we rarely eat at national chain restaurants-locally or when traveling.
Why did you name your company, “The Hello Agency”?
In the South, no matter how busy we all are- a simple “Hello” from a stranger can change the course of a person’s day. We want to be a company who builds a business on hospitality and by offering personalized service. We know everyone has a different idea of what they are looking for in terms of their vacation and we are here to help guide you throughout the process- from the moment we say Hello- till we follow up with you after you return.
