After almost 30 years in the industry, Leslie started Nashville Luxury Travel with Jennifer Martin. From planning fabulous girls’ trips to France and Italy and family ski trips to Switzerland, to exploring India and learning to play polo on an elephant, nothing is out of the ordinary for Leslie! Leslie has traveled to India, Nepal, Argentina and has extensively explored the Caribbean and Mexico. However, her one true love is Italy, and Leslie knows what it takes to craft an unforgettable, Italian experience!
‘Luxury travel, personalized’ is what to expect with Leslie, whose mission is to deliver her clients’ itineraries with impeccable execution, out of the box suggestions, and hassle-free planning. Leslie always delivers extensive, hands-on research to find the most authentic experiences a country has to offer - like riding a helicopter to the top of a mountain for a picnic, complete with champagne and a view of Mount Everest. She strives to not only work with her clients, but to treat them like friends. Communication is a vital component that she believes is key to truly understanding her clients’ desires, and turning their dream vacations into reality.
Leslie attended college at Mississippi State University and also studied abroad at Oxford University in England. Leslie was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and after living in multiple different states with her husband and two children, she came back to the Volunteer State and settled in Franklin. When she isn’t working or traveling, Leslie loves spending time with friends and family, tailgating with the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and watching her husband, who plays music on the side, around Downtown Nashville.
Jen teamed up with Leslie Horn to begin Nashville Luxury Travel after running her own travel business several years prior. Travel has been a passion of Jen’s since she was young, making this career path come simply and instinctively. With each trip she would plan for herself, friends, and family, Jen realized she had an honest enthusiasm for the job. Once she discovered the incredible benefits and features she could offer, Jen decided to pursue her passion and became a travel advisor!
Jen excels as a resort specialist and takes pride in picking the perfect resort for each client, knowing every resort has their own personality that should be matched to each traveler. Jen strives to know her clients confidently enough to find the resort she believes will significantly enhance their vacation; believing that hotels are more than just a place to sleep at night, but a home away from home. Jen has also developed a clear niche for experiential travel. Peru, the Galapagos, and her most recent obsession, Africa, have been Jen’s absolute favorite trips! Jen loves getting to know her clients, partnering with them to create the perfect journey, unforgettable experiences, and not just one trip of a lifetime, but a lifetime of extraordinary trips. Jen’s creative planning tactics in doing just that cannot be topped outside of NLT.
So far, Jen has made it to five continents and over 36 countries. Jen graduated from the University of Kentucky and now lives in Brentwood with her husband and three boys. She loves to read, play tennis, and naturally, to travel with her friends and family!
