Me in a minute

I haven't been Everywhere but it's on my list!

My favorite thing to do is to go where I have never been! As a travel enthusiast I have visited 17 countries around the world to date. My work experience and interaction with numerous multinational clients has been intriguing and stimulating. Global expansion of Withers on a worldwide basis has intensified my desire to further expand my horizons, explore our international locations and delve into learning more about our clients and the places they call home.

Discovering and exploring a new beautiful place by immersing myself in the culture, connecting with the people, experimenting with unfamiliar food and customs and basking in exotic and breathtaking scenery cannot be adequately described - it can only be experienced. The glory of foreign travel ignites a great sense of childlike wonder in me. It opens my mind, heart and eyes.

Adventure awaits - I haven’t been Everywhere but it’s on my list!
