Guide at a Glance
Lafayette, Louisiana, United States
Food Tour, Lifestyle
All-Inclusive Taste Tour
I am a native of St. Martin Parish, with deep roots in this area. My ancestors include the Latiolais, Melancon, Serrette and Zeringue families. My first language was French and I consider myself Acadian even though my heritage is French, Acadian, German and Anglo. I graduated from Cecilia High School and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and currently live in Henderson. I am the mother of two grown children and the grandmother of six.
I first became involved in Acadiana tourism in February 2013 when I retired from public education. It was an easy transition which allowed me to continue my role as an educator, with an emphasis on the history and culture of Acadiana. I own and operate Journeys with Ginger, planning and escorting day trips and short destination trips and often volunteer as a travel counselor at the Visitors’ Center. I enjoy being a lifestyle guide.
I joined this tour company when the owner contacted me for advice about adding a driver guide to help with tours. I realized after a short time that I share a passion for Acadiana’s unique culture and food with her. I feel blessed to have been given this amazing opportunity to share what is so special about Acadiana and its people.
