An adventure to Chile sparked her passion for the wild and vibrant cultures of South America, and she has since traveled extensively throughout Central and South America. After several years living and working in Cusco, Melissa now resides in the Sacred Valley of Peru. A fanatic of Incan architecture and traditional Andean textiles, when not planning adventures for her clients she can be found gardening, attempting to learn the Andean language Quechua, and hiking with her dog, Chasky.

Melissa's Client Reviews:

Melissa was amazing!!!! Our pre-trip video calls really allowed her to hone in on our interests while traveling to make sure this was perfect. We are thinking through logistics of another South American trip just so we can use Melissa again.Jude Rasmus
