Hi! Welcome to Travelsprouts! I am a mother of two amazing boys and the wife to one amazing man in Los Angeles, California. Bobby and I took our first trip when our older son was 7 weeks old – a 5 hour flight to Hawaii. I was terrified! I had no idea what to expect, what to bring, where to go. How do I keep my son on a sleep schedule? What if he freaked out on the flight? How do I get those special baby diapers? How can I get some sleep!?
Luckily, I had my sister-in-law to turn to. Nancy coached me and I soaked it all in. I started accumulating packing lists, testing equipment rental vendors, evaluating travel products, and reading like a fiend. My friends asked great questions and had great advice (thanks, ladies!) and I researched a ton.
Why am I so obsessed? Because in that first trip (and the 70+ trips that have followed) after we experienced something truly special with our boys – the joy of just being together. No phone, no traffic, no distractions…just our family and all the memories we could handle.
Ok, so I’m also a bit of a nerd. A science major at Yale, a finance and strategy MBA, and a former strategy consultant with Bain & Co., I’m programmed to look for efficiencies, collect and assimilate data, and create a replicable strategies to improve a process. And I’m a bulldog when it comes to finding an answer. I bring passion and dedication to making things work better.
I hope that you find value on our site – and more importantly, I hope you get back out there. See you out on the road!!
