Hello! I’m Erika! I was born and raised in New Jersey (South Jersey – there IS a difference). After high school, I went into the Air Force. From there I went to tech school (Morse Systems Operator) in Massachusetts. And then off to Italy. I lived in Italy for 3 years in a town called Carovigno on the heel of the boot. I fell in love with the culture and the people. It was truly an amazing experience. We traveled all over Italy and Spain just meeting people and learning. This is where my love for travel began!

After Italy came back to the states and lived in San Antonio for 4 years. Seemed like a good time to move again so I headed up to Kentucky. My parents had just moved there from Minnesota (where I spent most of my summers as a kid). After meeting my now husband we moved to Colorado where we stayed for 18 years. Which was the longest I’ve ever lived in one place! I’m now in Montana where we have been for the last 4 years.

As you can see I can’t seem to sit in one place. I love a change of scenery and to meet new people and experience the cultures whether it is here in the states or a different country. I have been to all but 3 states. California, Alaska, and Hawaii. I’m determined to change that in the next few years.

I’ve worked for American Airlines as well as Rail Europe. I’ve been an event planner for much of my career and have always been in the position to book travel for my co-workers and clients.

I opened my event planning business PlumTree Events here in Montana about 3 years ago and have decided to expand my services. Actually just officially offer what I have already been doing for everyone!
