Melissa joined Elli Travel as an Independent Affiliate in 2018. As a luxury travel advisor, Melissa combines many of the things she enjoys most – travel and research, learning about different cultures, working with friends and meeting new people. Her love of travel began at an early age when taking frequent treks cross-country in the back of her parent's station wagon. That love has never wavered, and she continues to enjoy adventures with her husband, one-on-one trips with each of her children, and trips with family and friends to destinations around the globe, including trips in North and South America, Europe, SE Asia, East Africa, and the South Pacific. She strives to use that personal knowledge to make each client’s dream trip a reality.
Leveraging her relationship with her vast network of travel partners around the world, she creates journeys that form lasting memories. A skilled listener and a great organizer, there is no project too small or too large. She dedicates the same attention to detail regardless of scope or budget, striving to figure out what will make each trip unique for her clients.
She lives in Larchmont, NY with her husband, their three children, a cheeky bird, and two very high-strung pups.
