Ciao from Italy, fellow sports fans!
While I would not call myself a sports fanatic, I have always enjoyed playing, participating and watching sports of all kinds. My first memory of organized sports was on the soccer field so many years ago. Since childhood, I have enjoyed many team and individual pursuits personally and have seriously watched countless hours (maybe weeks) of games and matches and races of all kinds! I could not feel more at home being on a team that just loves sports too.
I grew up in the Great Lakes region of the US and was lucky to have a haven for both youth team sports and the ability to learn how to ski and sail – passions that are still a part of me today. After high school, I moved to Colorado for college and really discovered my love of the outdoors in general. But also really found that having allegiances to professional teams can be really fun! Denver is a mecca for the professional sports enthusiast as they have almost every professional sport imaginable! It’s easy to attend a game any time you might want.
After living the mountain life for a couple decades, my soul has led me to experience living in a completely new culture. For now, home is located in the south of Tuscany. As a grateful dual citizen, I have been enjoying the journey and really hope to discover more and more of what Italy has to offer. Many of you might say “Obviously”… the Serie A football and you are so right! Our family has a little Juventus fan and our friends are lifelong, diehard Torino FC fans. It has been so incredible to see the dedication and the excitement that football brings to Italians first hand. In fact, being here for the Euro 2020 Final game and celebrating in the parks is something I will not easily forget.
When I'm not immersed in the soccer life, you can find me riding my bike, spending the day at the beach or skiing!
I am happy to say that I've actually been groundhopping with Paul. You can read more about our experience at a Fiorentina game here.
I am overcome with gratitude to be working with such a smart and professional group of people. I'm also thrilled to be able to help each of you, our clients, fulfill your football travel dreams.
