Travel Adventures!

I want to share my love of travel with you in an effort to inspire you to find your own adventure.  My wanderlust began after traveling to Russia to adopt my daughter. Read more about that here. Traveling to far away, exotic locations is amazing. But exploring close to home and not spending a fortune is also very rewarding.  My backyard has beautiful beaches, unique wildlife, delicious restaurants and amazing sunsets!  I enjoy traveling with my kids but also love solo travel. We all crave new experiences and travel lets us tap into that craving. It expands our perspective and gives us time to reflect.Life is an adventure…What are you waiting for?

“Stephanie was awesome in helping plan a girls trip to Asheville NC! She recommended a quaint Air B&B with hosts who were fantastic. With her guidance we rented a car and drove through the beautiful hills and went to the Biltmore house. We also signed up for a food and drink tour which took us to several local restaurants in Asheville. Over all it was one of the best trips I’ve taken and would definitely love to go back!  Thanks Stephanie!”

“Stephanie’s Warrior Workshop taught my co-workers and I practical tips and strategies to protect ourselves from being assaulted. As a realtor who is often alone in homes during open houses and showings, I need to know how to protect myself.  Stephanie’s class was hands-on, empowering and lots of fun!”
