My Path to Better Well-Being Began Years Ago...

I'm Deanna, an American-Italian living and working in NE Italy.

Some years ago I was experiencing burnout from working long hours in the field of Sports Medicine.
I loved my career field, yet I knew it was time to make a change.

There was a need for a better balance in my life & as it turns out, Italy was calling!

In 2001, I moved near my Italian family for the adventure of a new job, to travel more & to experience Italian life more deeply. And to explore my other lifelong hobby, photography!


Over the years, I left my workaholic ways behind and built a life around wellness, travel & photography. T & I is an extension of those experiences. 

My work draws on years of experience as a Teacher, Certified Athletic Trainer and most recently, an ICF Accredited Travel Coach.

My mission is to help people to tune-in to their inner guidance & embrace travel as a way to cultivate well-being, learn, grow, heal & transform.

My work sits at the intersection of wellness, personal growth & travel.

And so...

My Story

What I Believe About Wellness...

I believe wellness is a pathway to optimal living. An intentional way to live.

A pursuit of energy, balance, fulfillment & a little sanity (or some days a lot)! It's about showing up every day, for better or worse. And nourishing our minds, our bodies & our dreams. So we can meet our full potential.

I believe that travel greatly enriches life & is one of the best investments we can make in ourselves. It's an ideal avenue for well-being, personal growth & transformation. To redirect us back to ourselves when needed. And it's an endless source of inspiration.

As for me...

I am simply trying to live my best life. Doing my best to thrive.

Looking for inspiration & wanting to share the thoughtful things I find along the way. Things that are worth experiencing.

Everything I have learned about health & well-being has grown out of my professional experiences, along with a mix of hard work, experimentation & listening to my own intuition.

There's certainly no magic formula. Some days I get it right, and others it's more of a work in progress. But, it's given me a solid toolkit to build on & if my approach resonates with you, then I'm happy to share everything I know.
