From Montana to the World
Passiflora is the genus of the passion flower, a bright, intricate bloom with spiraling layers of petals and stamen. I found my first wild passion flower along a trail in the cloud forest of Costa Rica, where I was studying tropical biology as an undergrad. Since my time in Costa Rica, I have made a hobby of botany and a career of travel. I have worked in the travel industry since 2010, and have sent almost 5,000 travelers on successful adventures around the world. Raised in western Montana, I have lived and worked in Australia, Costa Rica, Peru, and Japan. Now, I call Santa Fe, New Mexico home base. I have been fortunate to travel throughout Central and South America, including the Galápagos Islands, the Amazon basin, Patagonia, and the wine country of Argentina. I traveled solo through Borneo, Malaysia, Laos, Thailand, and rode a train the length of Vietnam. Just last year, I spent 21 days rowing the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Up next, I’ll be heading to the Belizean Barrier Reef for a self-supported sea kayaking expedition! Let's work together.
One major benefit of having a sister with a case of wanderlust is the opportunity to visit a great many places. Without Sullivan’s keen sense of adventure, I would never have found myself in the jungles of Costa Rica, on the magnificent coasts of Japan, or at the very bottom of the Grand Canyon rafting down the Colorado River. I’ve seen whales crest from the desert coasts of Baja, Mexico, embarked on a 10,000 mile drive across the continental United States, and in 2019 will be travelling to Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands. My experience as a nonprofit organizer and communications manager provided the perfect foundation for a leap into the world of travel planning. I’ve planned over 300 trips, both domestic and abroad. Exploring the diverse landscapes, cultures, and cuisine of each place I have visited has brought me unparalleled awe and inspiration, and I strive to share that with Passiflora’s travelers.
