Hello! I’m the newest member of the Lisell Travel team, Jodie Hoffman. Originally, I am from the Chicagoland area but have lived in Texas for the past decade. My husband and I are in the Frisco area with our two young boys!
When I am not traveling or dreaming up my next adventure, I run an in-home salon that services hair extensions and eyelash extensions. The beauty business has kept me active and occupied for almost ten years now, and I’m ready to take on my other passion of traveling.
So far, I have been to many destinations across the U.S., Caribbean, and Canada, as well as parts of Europe, but I would have to say, my absolute favorite trip was backpacking through Thailand with the love of my life. We spent a 3 week honeymoon exploring Bangkok, riding elephants in Chiang Mai, cruising Phuket and the Phi Phi Islands and relaxing on the beaches of Koh Samui. It was such an adventure filled with lots of food and new experiences!
If I were to put a place on my “bucket list of travel” it would be New Zealand. There’s something about a small island, on the other side of the world, that has both mountains and beaches that really intrigues me. I’d be ready to explore in a heartbeat!
Although my time helping others plan travel has just started, I have already gravitated towards specializing in coordinating family trips, planning out girlfriend get-aways and sending couples to relax and recharge. Whether it’s navigating a Disney destination with your little ones or sweeping your significant other away on a romantic weekend adventure, I love being a resource to help plan out new memories for family and friends.
