Do you want to provide a transformative travel experience for a team or group?

I can help you create a unique experience that enables and empowers your participants to dig deep into self-discovery, develop self-awareness, connect with other group members in an intimate and meaningful way, and engage with cultural communities respectfully and responsibly.

program evaluation

If you’re a school, organization, or business offering an existing travel program, I’ll help you evaluate whether or not you’re maximizing your potential to provide a transformative experience.

We’ll lay out your program’s goals and objectives, evaluate what you’re doing to meet them, and outline what else could be done to provide a high-impact experience that will stay with your participants for a lifetime.

We’ll design a travel experience that provides your participants with powerful personal growth, meaningful relationships, and effective intercultural skills development.

program facilitation

If you need an outside expert to lead a series of workshops throughout the trip. I can facilitate sessions customized to your needs, allowing you to focus on program management and logistics.

This is ideal for programs focused on cultural immersion, volunteering or studying abroad, offsite company retreats, co-living or co-working experiences for digital nomads, etc.
