Shared Adventures is a boutique travel agency dedicated to helping clients travel better. We’ve built a team of smart, well-traveled professionals with varied backgrounds and specialties, and we know you’ll love working with us!
A native New Yorker who fell in love with Rhode Island (and her RI-born husband) while in college, Ann now lives in the coastal town of Wakefield, RI and travels every spare minute that she gets. She has always lived by the mantra that “Life is Short and the World is Wide” and – in 2006 – that inspired her to leave a corporate career in advertising and marketing and start her own business helping other people fulfill their travel dreams. That first business (Annie’s Escapes) grew and evolved into the Shared Adventures team that it is today. Along the way, Ann has earned many industry accolades, including being named a top-selling “Platinum” agent with Travel Planners International for 10+ years in a row, being voted “Best Honeymoon Planner / Statewide” by the readers of Rhode Island Monthly, and earning multiple Wedding Wire “Couples Choice” and The Knot’s “Best of the Knot” awards.
Ann specializes in honeymoons and complicated multi-stop trips to Europe, Hawaii and French Polynesia. Her “super power” as an agent is her ability to craft itineraries that bring together a couple’s seemingly contradictory wish lists and priorities, and come up with a shared adventure that makes everyone happy!
You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
