I am a wife, mom of 3, high school teacher, and avid traveler. My mom took my sisters and me on trips outside the South in high school. She sent me to France on a school trip after 11th grade, and I was officially hooked! In my teen and college years, my parents took us on some exciting family trips and I love following in her footsteps.
When my husband and I married, we took advantage of my school breaks to travel throughout Europe, the US, and the Caribbean. Once we had kids, we did our first big kid trip to the US Virgin Islands with our 2-year-old and haven’t stopped! Now as a family of 5, we enjoy trips to classic kid sites like Disney, but also national parks and international.

I know traveling with little kids can be daunting and overwhelming. I’m here to show you how to make it happen. It is not going to perfect and there will be hiccups along the way, but it is worth it in the long run. You won’t regret and I’m excited to help build confidence in your abilities to travel to new exciting places with kids.
As a tip- you can always start small with day trips and overnights to nearby locales. You don’t have to jump right into a week long trip across the country or overseas.
