Introducing Our Experience Curators

The quintessence of Cuvée, our Experience Curators are our heart and soul, delivering “The Art of Discovery” to our guests, every day.

The integrity, honesty, and respect within our Cuvée team are the reasons I’m very proud to be part of this family.

The satisfaction of having such an enormous impact on our guests and striving to exceed any expectations is extremely gratifying and is the reason I am lucky to say that I love my job with Cuvée.

With a love for travel and a passion for curating lifelong memories and relationships, Shannon brings her unparalleled guest service experience to the team.

We make their “rêves” come true.

My favorite moment of every guest stay is when our Cuvée guests walk into our St. Barts villas for the first time and run outside and are breathtaken at the beautiful Caribbean views. The beauty of St. Barts is “magnifique” and I’m so lucky to be able to share it with our clients.

I love forming connections between people, concepts, and places.

Helping others make their dreams a reality and assuring that things run smoothly is so satisfying for me. Discovering the world through travel is a passion of mine that I love bringing to others!

As a 20-year inhabitant of Telluride, Lisa’s happy place is at the top of Telluride mountain. A master of the San Miguel county real estate and rental industry, Lisa has been inside nearly every home in the region. Dog mom to Scooter and Willie, she’s our resident Telluride expert, always living, working, and playing on and around the mountain.

After designing unforgettable memories for guests at The Little Nell, Kristen brings over seven years of hospitality experience to the Cuvée team. Kristen enjoys the active Colorado lifestyle and spending time outdoors.

Born and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley, there is nothing more fulfilling than sharing the secret adventures of the beautiful place that I call home. I find excitement in curating unique and memorable experiences for guests. When I am not in the office you can find me hiking, skiing, exploring the outdoors, or spending time with my family.

Aloha, my friends!

Our Cuvée ohana is the definition of the Hawaiian generosity of spirit. And, here in Hawaii and throughout the Cuvée world, we value family, personalized luxury, and every attention to detail. Knowing that I’ve made someone’s day brings me tremendous levity and gratitude, something we call mahalo here in Hawaii.

From Argentina, Giuliana join us with her creativity, organizational skills and wide background in customer service to help guests get a unique experience in one of the most magical destinations at the Rocky Mountains.

As a Colorado native, I knew I’d found my forever home, once I arrived in Aspen. Beyond snowboarding in the winter, and backpacking during the summer, my favorite part of our beloved valley is the opportunity to always try new things!

The land, our history. The roots, our essence. Italy, our home.

The passion and indissoluble bond I have for my homeland bestows upon me a profound responsibility to help our guests explore Italy’s beauty, discover hidden villages, and share Tuscan anecdotes.

Life is best experienced next to the ocean and soaked in the sun.

Connecting with guests and building a uniquely personal experience for each family is an absolute joy for me. I am passionate about the beauty of Los Cabos and love sharing this incredible place through moments curated by Cuvée.

I love being part of the Cuvée family.

I put my heart and soul into creating long lasting memories for our guests in Los Cabos. Whether they’re enjoying the beauty of this paradise, exploring this incredible land, or experiencing a delicious and authentic meal in our beautiful villas.
