Hello! I am Van, owner of Travel Theory.

I LOVE to travel. My passion for travel started years ago with my family trip to Thailand. As a little girl growing up in Vietnam, I was amazed with the breathtaking views, the warm, welcoming people and the taste of local fresh fruits. I moved to the US in 2001 and continued my passion for travel by exploring new destinations, meeting new people, embracing local cultures and tasting local cuisines. Now as a mom of three boys, I love creating lifelong memories with my family through fun and meaningful travel experiences.

I enjoy turning my clients’ travel dreams into reality and listening to their stories when they return. When I am not busy researching for my clients’ dream vacations, you can find me chasing kids around at a nearby park or spending quality time with friends and family.
