Helen Papa - TBH TravelMy prior career as a CPA and CFO gave me a strong business background; my love for travel and desire to provide great guest experiences are the foundation of TBH Travel.

I use my expertise, research, and contacts to create personalized travel for my guests. I am proud of TBH Travel and the amazing professional advisors that make up our team.

Larissa Converti – Travel Coordination Manager

I grew up in a multicultural home with parents who instilled a love of travel and culture from an early age. I speak Korean, Italian, Spanish, and English, and believe in harmonizing authentic immersions with curated, luxury experiences.

Most of my travels have centered around Europe, Asia, and Latin America. I am excited to build unique and transformative travel journeys for others.

Stacey BaroneI founded Travel by Stacey, LLC in 2012, as an independent affiliate of TBH Travel. With every trip planned, I stay true to my mission of helping clients “Travel Intelligently” and creating lifetime memories through highly personalized travel experiences.

In addition to understanding today’s world of luxury travel, the skills that were important in my prior career as a lawyer – attention to detail, research skills, and client advocacy – are equally valuable to my current clients. I am focused on creating strong, successful relationships with both clients and travel professionals throughout the world. Whether you are a new or seasoned traveler, this focus helps turn your travel dreams into reality.

A graduate of Cornell University (Go Big Red!) and an avid photographer, I travel often for both business and pleasure, obtaining valuable first-hand knowledge which I utilize to customize my clients own memorable travel experiences.

Melanie Thomas - Luxury Travel AdvisorMy travel career began in 1993. I have found that the best part of being a travel advisor is to work closely with my clients to make their travel dreams come true.

My favorite trip to plan is a romantic getaway. I believe that choosing the right resort is the key to a successful getaway. My husband and I have traveled extensively and have had the privilege of staying in some of the finest and most unique resorts in the world. Having first hand experience of these exclusive properties makes it possible for me to recommend the perfect resort to match your travel dreams. Whether it is a beach vacation in the Caribbean, Mexico, Bali, or Mauritius, or a boutique property looking out over the hills of Tuscany, I will work to find the perfect resort for you.

The other travel sector I am passionate about is adventure travel. Nothing can top the thrill of bicycling in New Zealand or the life altering experience of seeing the big five on an African safari. The memories created on an adventure vacation will stay with you for the rest of your life.

I believe that our lives are enriched and broadened by traveling the world. Contact me and together we will work to create a dream and life enhancing adventure for you.

Myra Collins - Luxury Travel AdvisorI have been in the travel business since 1989. As a travel advisor affiliated with TBH Travel and through our affiliation with Virtuoso,

I look forward to sharing my experience and creating new and exciting itineraries for my clients.

Hannah Fitzgerald - Luxury Travel AdvisorBorn and raised in Louisiana, I have always been fascinated by different cultures. Fortunately, I have had many opportunities to travel and learn about the various cultures all over the world.
