I was born and raised in Sweden and have worked and traveled extensively all over the globe. Through my travels, I have gained considerable experience in international logistics, administration, yacht racing, and cruising. I have over 30,000 offshore miles logged including two Atlantic crossings. I lived and worked over three years onboard the iconic 1934 America’s Cup J-class yacht Endeavour as a Chief Stewardess and race crew. Notable regattas include St. Barth’s bucket, Antigua Classics and the momentous America’s Cup Jubilee in 2001 in Cowes, England. After Endeavour I lived in New Zealand, Switzerland and Spain attending culinary school and working as a Charter Chef on superyachts based in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

I have always had a passion for sailing and in 2004 began working in team logistics for USA’s BMW Oracle and the French Team K-Challenge in the 32nd America’s Cup in Valencia, Spain. After the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger elimination, I became the boat manager for the VIP spectator boats. The high energy and multinational environment were a natural fit for me.

Having moved to San Diego as a young adult, I studied and received a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, San Diego. I returned to San Diego in 2007 after 8 years of traveling and have remained in the yachting industry. Joining Fraser in 2018, I'm excited to help my clients explore the world and fuel their passion for travel.
