I’m a born and bred Midwesterner, a former social worker, a wife and a mom. Traveling with my family of five is one of my greatest pleasures, be it a road trip to an off-beat site, a visit to a national park by rail or a flight afar for a complete change of pace. It’s not easy: my middle son has type 1 diabetes, celiac disease and a life-threatening peanut allergy. Family vacations and the planning involved take on a new dimension with these medical struggles.
As a social worker, I honed the skills necessary to find resources and connect people with what they need. This was my favorite part of the job! As a curious person, I’m always in pursuit of information, usually related to nutrition, health and travel. And as a traveling mom, all of these aspects of me journey together, ensuring many safe, enjoyable (and affordable) trips for my family.
