(Read a recent interview with Sheree here)
Sheree M. Mitchell has traveled to 40 countries, lived on three different continents and speaks English, Spanish, and Portuguese. In 2014 Sheree gave up her career, car and apartment, rented a small storage unit and embarked on an ambitious year-long solo sojourn around the globe.
Since 2002 Sheree has designed and directed language and cultural immersion programs in the U.S., Costa Rica, Spain and France. As a direct beneficiary of these types of programs (she studied Spanish and lived with local families in Spain and Costa Rica) she knows first-hand just how quickly immersive travel can change your worldview. In 2015, Sheree launched Immersa Global, a boutique travel company that specializes in curating experience-based journeys and professional development programs.
Since 2015, Sheree spends three to four months a year in Portugal designing exclusive culinary and wine routes for American enograstronomic tourists. Her most notable work took her deep into the southern part of the country (O Alentejo) for three months where she designed an off-the-beaten-path food and wine experience where no such program existed before. She works with many of the country’s culinary superstars, small regional cooks, speciality food producers, and well-known winemakers.
Sheree's currently co-designing The Ambassador's Tour, where she and former U.S. ambassadors around the world provide exclusive, behind-the-scenes experiences in business and politics for American business leaders and selected young leaders. She's also designing 12-day immersive experiences in Portugal, Costa Rica and Israel for American university students that explore the meaning of global citizenship, as well as a innovative, off-the-beaten path food and wine programs in Portugal for discerning Chinese tourists.
Sheree is regularly invited to speak at travel shows and conferences on her experiences in immersive and enogastronomic tourism. She is also invited to contribute regularly to international print and web-based publications.
