Shannon was born and raised in the Midwest with a real passion for travel. She’s being living among the green rolling hills with her husband and daughter.

She has a real passion of helping people plan their dream vacations to all destinations. She especially loves planning for couples’ honeymoons to unique and unfamiliar destinations. When Shannon’s not behind her computer planning trips, she loves to spend her spare time with her family, trying new restaurants, redecorating her home, and thrift shopping for unique finds.
