Katie can’t remember a time that she wasn’t inspired by travel. After her first family trip to Europe in high school, she fell in love with the rich histories and breathtaking scenes across France and Italy. Her semester abroad in Rome was entirely fueled by the travel bug, with trips that took her everywhere from Dublin to Istanbul.
After she graduated, Katie’s passion for exploration propelled her to spend a month driving across the United States. Experiencing such a variety of cultures in her own country inspired her to become immersed in something entirely new. Shortly afterward, she picked up and moved to León, Nicaragua, where she taught English to locals of all ages. Now that she’s back in the Boston area, Katie is always looking for ways to keep exploring; she’s excited to help DuVine guests to do the same!
A native of the Boston area, Julia grew up hiking, biking, and skiing around New England. From a young age, trips with her family instilled in her a love of adventure, food, and travel. Many of Julia’s first memories include tasting good food, biking in Vermont, and enjoying summers at the beach on the Cape.
Her first time out of the United States was in Montreal, Canada, where she tasted steak tartare for the first time and began a lifelong love affair with French food. After that, Julia took a family vacation to Rome and Florence where she explored her Italian heritage. A favorite experience was cooking wheat pasta and drinking fresh peach nectar. This trip cemented Julia’s desire to travel and she has since visited cities from Paris to Prague, drinking wine and exploring cafés along the way.
Julia now lives in Somerville and enjoys running, lifting, and spending time with friends. She is excited to be joining the DuVine team and sharing her love of food and travel!
Like a true Italian, Albi spends her free time chilling in the town square, eating mama’s cooking, and chasing tail. At times, she can also demonstrate the characteristics of a Calabrese—testa dura!
Having recently graduated from Puppy Kindergarten, Albi has not yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. Though she enjoys her Pay-Per-Lick internship, she sometimes falls asleep on the job. As a half sheepdog, she’s a natural guide, shepherding the team along with love and attention to detail. She’s a real team player and always one sniff ahead of everyone.
Bobo, a native Swede, has spent her whole career in the sometimes-crazy word of travel. Before joining DuVine, she worked for the world’s leading educational tour company, managing teams and products in Switzerland, India, and Boston. Whether skydiving in Las Vegas or swimming with great white sharks in South Africa, Bobo’s thrill-seeking nature is always leading her off to unique activities and destinations. She has traveled all over the world, but the big ticket item on her current bucket list is to conquer Mt. Kilimanjaro (once she can find a brave enough travel companion)! Closer to home, you will find Bobo skiing the Vermont slopes in winter or challenging anyone to a round of golf in the warmer months— unless she is busy doing her absolute favorite thing: hanging out with her two young sons!
