About Me

I started a personal blog called Weekend Jaunt in December 2010. I would keep track of all the places I visited for both business and pleasure using the following pillars: eat, play, chill and stay. Then in 2016, I partnered with OutMatch Associates to share my travels with a larger audience. Today, Trip Jaunt serves as a resource for the xenophile (like me!) who has an insatiable need to explore our planet responsibly while leaving a minimal footprint – only taking memories.

Here at Trip Jaunt, we write about destinations that we have travelled to. If you don’t see a destination, it’s on our list and we’ll get there! Our goal is to give you enough information and inspiration to plan your next adventure! Check out our first-hand perspective in our Destination Guides or peruse our travel articles from accommodations to wellness and everything in between.

I did not set out to be a travel blogger (and vlogger), it happened organically. Travel has always been a big part of my life. In fact, I started organizing trips for my fellow classmates in high school to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for Spring Break and Mt. Ste. Anne, Quebec for Winter Break. Till this day (even during COVID), I continue to curate trips for a discerning group of travellers who want that once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Aside from my passion for travel, I am a recognized communications strategist, who is known for being at the forefront of emerging industries in a leadership capacity. I produce projects from ideation to execution creating an exceptional work environment bringing out the best in the team. Having a plethora of award-winning skills gained in my decades of experience, I bring a multifaceted approach with an incredibly keen and experienced eye to everything I do.
