About me


Welcome to Traveling Tots and Co, a space dedicated to the incredible adventures of traveling & hiking with children.

I am Richelle, an avid athlete, traveler & nature enthusiast who has embarked on countless journeys across the globe. I believe that wunderlust and outdoor exploration should never be put on hold just because we have little ones.

As a women who married later in life and prior traveled the world, completed in multiple Ironman Triathlons, focused on an advanced career and was a free spirit, getting married and having children (2 beautiful little girls) flipped my world upside down, however  I decided early on not to put life on hold. 


My Background

I am a doctor of pediatric Occupational Therapy with a focus on neonatal development and early intervention.

I believe my expertise in motor, cognitive, social & behavioral development has guided me in the ability to provide practical advice on planning family friendly activities, kid friendly hiking itineraries, packing essentials, and navigating the challenges and rewards of traveling with toddlers. Together, we will discover the best ways to nurture a love for adventure, cultivate curiosity, and create unforgettable family moments.
