James Mueller, Trip Host. James serves as a Trouvaille host for our Ireland and Isle of Man cultural adventures. His story began 20 years ago with a simple question: "Do you want to go to Ireland?". At the time, James was a post-graduate who enjoyed Irish ceili dancing on the side. Who would have guessed that one request by his then-dance instructor to plan and execute their first trip would lead to over 100,000 miles of driving through Ireland, plus excursions to England, Scotland, the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, and Austria? Now a certified Irish dance instructor and adjudicator, Jim shares his 20 years of travel experience in Europe with Trouvaille.
Sarah Nolan-Hardersen, Administration. Mrs. Nolan-Hardersen originates from England, has lived much of her life in New Zealand and Australia, and emigrated to the U.S. in 2016. Her background is primarily in public health, community programs, and sustainable development. She assists Trouvaille by assisting in the development of company policies, graphic arts design, and blogging.
