Short Bio: I am a stay-at-home Momma with a passion for travel and exploring the world. To finance my passion to explore the world, I became a hard core collector of miles and points which has enable my family and I to travel the world. We just came back from a month long adventure throughout England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland which was completely paid for with miles and points.

My full time job is Momma. I homeschool, coach sports and constantly run around after my children. I also manage my own travel resource site, milesmomma.com.  The Miles Momma site is geared towards helping the average leisure traveler learn how to collect more miles & points than they could ever imagined possible. With the resources and tools provided on my site, the average person can learn how to travel the world for next to nothing. My desire is to show average people how they too can achieve the dream of travel. Traveling the world isn’t just for the wealthy!

Most embarrassing travel moment: When I forgot a pull-up for my toddler son who wet the entire seat while he was sleeping on an 11 hour night flight to Italy. I had to put my tee shirt on him to walk off the plane. He looked so cute though walking in the long t-shirt and wasn’t bothered by the fact he had no underwear or pull-up on.

Worst travel moment:  Got food poisoning in Kauai from fish at the Hilton right before boarding the 5 hour flight back to California. I was throwing up the entire flight home. It was by far my worst travel moment I’ve ever had. I must have been in the bathroom the entire flight.

What’s your dream destination: Everywhere I go is a dream because I never imagined I would be living the dream of traveling the world. I’m so grateful for every place I’m able to see in the world.

Favorite travel charity: Passports with a purpose

Best travel tip:  The more you plan before you go, the better trip you’ll have. Time wasted in a hotel, train station or on the street trying to figure out what to do or how to get there is no fun especially with children. Also, use Google Earth when planning out trips to actually see what it looks like where you are planning to visit or stay. Take a walk around the neighborhood virtually and see if it’s what you were thinking before you go.
