Ready, Set Pto

Hi friends! I launched Ready, Set PTO back in 2018 as a way to share my travel itineraries to help & inspire others to get out there and plan their next adventure. Don't let having a 9-5 job stop you - learn how to maximize your vacation days to still be able to check things off your bucket list!

I'm based in Los Angeles, CA. When I'm not traveling or planning my next trip, you can find me hanging at the beach, at my favorite dive bar, hiking/camping, or snowboarding at Mammoth! I always strive to make life fun and to get out of my comfort zone.
