Don’t leave your vacations to chance—especially if you’re after a life-changing, one-of-a-kind, bucket-list adventure. Let me design something truly transformational, just for you.
Here’s what you can expect on a Florecer journey:
Every Florecer journey is imbued with luxury—but this goes beyond the luxury of fine linens and indulgent amenities (though you get those as well!). A Florecer traveler craves the luxury of truly personal service, like checking into a hotel where the concierge greets you by name and the staff learns your preferences, or a private tour guide who plans out your day according to your own interests and desires.
This is the luxury of intimacy over anonymity, personal care over being treated like just another number. And of course, you get the luxury of having a personal travel advisor to plan it all for you and troubleshoot any issue that arises.
In my career as a landscape designer, I work closely with talented architects and interior designers, which further expanded my eye for exceptional detail and extraordinary beauty. I apply that same design lens to your escape, hand-picking unique properties that exude warmth, style, and a strong sense of place.
I want you to walk into your hotel suite (or cliffside villa, or overwater bungalow) and say, “wow.”
And: I’ll ensure your stay feels distinctly of your destination—not like it could be plucked up and plopped anywhere in the world. Because where you wake up each morning, and rest your head each night, sets the stage for a truly extraordinary escape.
Let’s make your next vacation your best vacation—and the one after that even better. I’m in the business of crafting unforgettable itineraries, and my clients don’t have time to waste on getaways that simply don’t leave an impression.
So, toss out the same old-same old and start checking off your bucket list now. Expect immersive experiences that play to your passions, local-led and private excursions that take you off the well-trod path, and moments of discovery that thrill you to the bone.
When we have our first consultation call, I'll ask you a lot of questions, to get to know you, and your travel style. What was your favorite vacation and why? What has gone wrong on a past trip? What makes you feel really pampered and special? These things help me customize your trip just for you.

Plus, I can offer experiences that you simply can't get by searching the web. VIP access to tickets and events, local experiences, trusted guides, and everything else needed to make your vacation a once in a lifetime trip.
I have never worked with someone who was so attentive! Prior to my trip, the airlines kept making changes and Julie was right there with knowledge, advice and assistance. The hotels she steered me toward were absolutely magnificent--I'm not someone who wants a super luxe hotel; I want a boutique experience with great service, kind staff, and a unique feel. I got exactly what I wanted because Julie listened and understood! For the day-trips we planned, Julie managed it so that every detail was handled--excellent, knowledgeable tour guides and experiences that met my every expectation. And finally, I'm so glad I listened to Julie about not planning out every day of my trip. It was so lovely to have a couple of days to just walk around, shop with street vendors, stop for lunch at newly discovered places. The whole trip was simply magnificent!
Julie knows her stuff! She pulled from her extensive travel experiences and connections to ensure that our trip to San Miguel de Allende was perfect. Her recommendations for us - from lodging, to dining, to excursions - were spot on. I'd definitely arrange travel through Julie again.
Julie arranged a perfect trip for my husband and I to Guanajuato, MX. She provided a variety of activity options, left some flexibility built in, had all internal transports paid for (even including the tipping - so nice not to have to worry about that), and had great recommendations for food and drinks.
Our trip to Guanajuato was the just the right mix of sightseeing, adventure and relaxation. I would not hesitate to trust Julie with a future vacation. 5 stars!
Julie is the most wonderful assistant to make a life time of memories! My family and I just took an amazing trip to Guanajuato, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. With her assistance and her knowledge of flights, hotels, places to eat and things to do, it made our trip the most amazing experience. She really knows her stuff! Talk about customization...She customized the trip for each person and took to heart what each person likes to do. Obviously she put a lot of work into making our vacation something we couldn't have done on our own.
Alaska trip: Couldn't have been better.
