I founded my tour business, Provence Cultural Tours, a few years after moving to France in 2003 and have been enthusiastically leading cultural tours and foodie forays ever since!
I thank my parents for giving me an appreciation of the countryside, having been raised on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I have always been keenly interested in fine food and wine, how things are grown and produced.
After graduating from the University of Boulder, Colorado, I began a career in Marketing, but my passion for the culinary arts, led me to eventually manage a French Bistro, and launch a career as a food professional, first in the US, then in France. I am an avid world traveler, who loves discovering the cuisine and wine of other countries. At home in Provence, I enjoy meeting local people in Provence, farmers, foraging in the countryside, and spending time around the table enjoying meals with family and friends.
