"It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have to still go and how much more there is to learn" 

After graduating from the University of Georgia with a BS degree in Marketing, Emma moved to Atlanta to work for a strategic marketing and communications firm. She found a love for building client relationships, but had an undeniable passion for the travel industry, leading her to pursue her dreams through Major Traveler. Through her travels, she has realized the value in stepping outside of your comfort zone and broadening your perspective, constantly seeking new destinations and unique corners of the world so that her clients can have memorable experiences.

Leah obtained degrees in both Social Work & Nonprofit Management and went on to pursue a career in Higher Education, in hope to help others. But her love for planning, especially trips, ultimately lead her to Major Traveler where she now enjoys helping other’s dreams of travel come true. Leah and her husband enjoy weekend getaways, exploring and eating their way across the country. And now as a new mom, she cannot wait to show her little one the world!


Leave room for spontaneous exploration and don't over-schedule your itinerary! 

Try any new food at least once

Roll your clothes (I promise it's a space saver!)

Always pack jewelry in your carry-on

At the end of your trip, make a montage with all of your photos and videos. You're much more likely to watch it again and again!
