Born and raised in Colorado, I developed a love of travel at a young age. I studied Arabic and international politics at Georgetown University during which time I studied abroad in Morocco. I feel in love with the warmth of the people and the weather. So, I moved to Casablanca to work for Experience Morocco shortly after graduating. When I am not introducing guests to the wonders of Morocco, you'll find me in the ocean surfing.

How did you get involved in travel?
"My family always focused on traveling instead of giving gifts, so from a young age I discovered the wonders of exploring foreign cultures, histories, and geographies. I joined Experience Morocco because wanted to contribute to an organization that is building tolerance and understanding through travel. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"One of my favorite experiences was spending Eid al-Adha, the Muslim holiday when families sacrifice a sheep/goat/cow, with a local family in Rabat. I did not grow up religious and rarely eat meat, so I wasn't sure how to feel about the holiday. But joining the family in their living room for the sacrifice and discussing with them the significance and traditions of the holiday was a once in a life time experience. "
