As Pravassa's founder, I've been leading travelers around the world on wellness tours since 2009. Creating group and individualized itineraries for people and companies that are looking to restore productivity and creativity is my passion and my presence on-site enables clients to reach their full wellness potential by facilitating individual relaxation, stress reduction, and life-balancing education. When not on the road, I contribute to columns in The Huffington Post and MindBodyGreen and am a regular speaker at conferences around the country. My first book, Living Well on the Road, is now a #1 Amazon Bestseller.
