About Me

In 2013, I was laid off from a very average corporate job.  It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it allowed me to open Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef services.  I am now in the process of opening a new Italian themed coffee and sandwich café .    In 2015, I took my first trip to Florence and Tuscany and fell in love!

I was fortunate enough to make wonderful friends in Florence almost immediately that were more than willing to help me follow my dream of conducting Boutique Tours of Tuscany.  In 2016, I conducted my first tour. 

I absolutely love Florence, and I feel lucky to have so many wonderful friends there.  I believe that large group tours don't allow one to explore this region as it should be.  Quality, not quantity is the Italian way.

I hope that you will join me to experience Florence and Tuscany as a local, not a tourist.  Ci vediamo in Tuscany!
