Originally from Kansas City with an event planning background, I moved to Italy in 2010 and began working in food and wine tourism. I lived in both Florence and Rome and got to know the neighborhoods and met local guides, artists, chefs and shop owners. In 2013 I decided to start Slice of Tuscany full-time in order to provide comprehensive and first-class Italian vacations – all details considered throughout Italy and no stress for you.
I want to share my passion for Italy with fellow travelers. My goal is to create unforgettable experiences that give you a slice of real life, eliminate the stress of travel planning, and make you want to come back for more. There is so much to see, do, eat and drink in Italy that one trip is never enough.
In 2014 I met my husband to-be in Florence. He's an American with an Italian name (go figure) and was stationed in Italy at the time. In 2015 he proposed and in 2016 he moved me to the United States. I now work from home in Arizona and travel to Italy several times a year both with clients and for research.
