MOST EXOTIC PLACE YOU’VE HAD A PASSENGER FROM:

Zanzibar

CRAZIEST OUTING YOU’VE HAD ON A TRILOGY TOUR:

Anytime we have rough weather, the day becomes that much more interesting. This winter was an exceptional one with regards to bad weather and one day in particular will always stand out. It took us over three hours to get home from Lanai (standard is about an hour and 45 minutes), high water alarms were going off, the whole boat was soaked and cold.. add to that a couple of sea sick guests, and well.. it was an adventure.


FAVORITE SNORKEL SPOT ON MAUI:

I rarely work at Honolulu bay so going there always feels like a treat

WHERE DO YOU GO ON VACATION?

When I’m not going to weddings of friends, I like to travel internationally. My last big trip was to Argentina, my husband and I got engaged at Iguazu falls, wine tasted in Mendoza and spent a couple weeks exploring Patagonia. This year we enjoyed our honeymoon in Madagascar and the Maldives!

WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAY OFF?

I’ll spend my days relaxing and reading or adventuring and going on hikes. I’m up for anything!

FAVORITE RESTAURANT ON MAUI:

probably Merriman’s... you just can’t beat the view!

BEST PART ABOUT WORKING FOR TRILOGY:

The breadth of knowledge that is required keeps you always learning and always progressing, to me it’s the most challenging since I did not start working here with a large mechanical base of knowledge. Continuing to improve on that and other aspects keeps things interesting.
