At the top of my travel list...

is New Zealand. It seems like a country you have to see to believe. The diverse landscape is unlike anywhere I have ever been. Not to mention all of the activities: hiking, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking... so much to do!

My favorite restaurant...

is the Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan's Island. I love the laid-back atmosphere, and everything on the menu is amazing.

My bucket list...

includes visiting all 50 states. There are so many amazing places to see in our own country. Without counting airport layovers or driving through, I have been to 24 so far – almost half way there!

My favorite place to take visitors...

is out on the water. Seeing Charleston from the water gives a unique perspective. Whether it is the river, intracoastal waterway, Shem Creek or the harbor, visitors will see Charleston in a whole new way!

On a day off...

I can be found taking the boat out with my husband and our dog to go fishing or to meet up with friends at the sandbar.
