Balance is where it’s at for Vicki!  A commitment to living a healthy life to the fullest leads her to destinations that combine wellness with exploration.  Take that amazing hike, sweat your heart out at a Soul Cycle class, walk/bike as many trails as the day allows… Then onto savoring wine and local farm to table cuisine!  Cities speak her language, but the beach and mountains call to her often as well.  New York City, Rome, and Stockholm are favorites.  The beaches of Turks and Caicos, St. Lucia and those that meet 30A in Florida fill the need for sand and surf.  The anticipation of a trip and the details of planning feed her slightly OCD soul.  Vicki is the one you want behind the scenes of your next vacation.
