Bushra was born in a small town called Alley in the mountains overlooking the city of Beirut in Lebanon. She studied at the Lebanese American University, where she gained her Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs and Diplomatic Services. Bushra married in Lebanon and soon after moved to Marbella in Spain, where she lived with her husband and two boys for 14 years. During her time in Spain, Bushra worked in the property industry, where she managed the day-to-day running of a large real estate company on the Costa Del Sol. Her love of languages made it easy to add a fourth language while living in Spain. She now speaks Arabic, English, French, and Spanish fluently and is currently self-learning Russian. Bushra moved once again in 2015 to the Gold Coast in Australia, where she resides with her family.

Traveling the world has been Liz’s destined inheritance from day one. Between her father’s Southern roots in Tennessee to her mother’s land of Ancient Greece, she was born into an exotic, jet-setting way of life to parents who were global nomads. Since early childhood, Liz has acquired a collection of passport stamps. It was only natural that her compass led to working within the travel profession.

From Silicon Valley to Music Row, Liz has tailored memorable travel experiences for Fortune 500 CEOs, hit music makers and celebrities. As a Certified Travel Specialist, Liz earned her wings working for American Express Travel first as a top-producing Pacesetter agent, then as an Elite Team Leader and a Branch Manager, all the while catering to discerning Platinum & Centurion Cardmembers. While spearheading bespoke natural history travel programs for one of the world’s leaders in nature travel whose clientele ranged from exclusive environmental protection organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, The Audubon Society, and the World Wildlife Foundation, Liz developed a deep respect for our planet and the protection of all its fragile and beautiful natural wonders.

With 34 years of professional travel planning under her belt, including traversing the globe to over 65 countries and living in multiple foreign locales, Liz has gained exposure to many diverse cultures and always immersed herself in unique local experiences – ranging from diving on underwater archaeological photography shoots in the Aegean to promoting the preservation and natural habitat of the wild jaguar population in the Cockscomb Preserve of Belize. Liz is happily married to an adventurous husband who compliments her intense passion for exploring the world. The cultivation of her amassed industry experience curated the perfect launching pad for Liz’s personal journey now with THIRDHOME.
