Travel is in her blood. There's always more to explore and Valerie can't stay put for too long without heading out on a new adventure. Fueled by coffee, she's always ready to hit the skies onto somewhere new. She began Cultured Travel after 10 years of living internationally where she developed a deep love and appreciation for unique cultures around the world. Experiential travel has been a way of life for Valerie. She brings her personal experience and passion for immersive experiences into her travel design. Each client itinerary is created with the same attention to detail and thoughtfulness as if she were planning her own.

Valerie's Favorites


Bali. The unique culture, friendly people, beautiful beaches and exotic jungle will call her back again and again.


 Most days she prefers black coffee. She knows that's really basic but hey it's what she likes. ;-) If it's a hot day, she likes to treat herself to a Nitro Cold Brew!

Pass time: 

Skiing in the winter and then hiking as soon as the snow melts. Nature is her happy place and being active outside is how she recharges.


Her husband and their 3 curious and playful children.
