My name is Andrea Soueidan, and I am the founder of Altitude Connections. I guess you could say that I have been making connections all my life - between people, between an individual and his/her goal, between persons and places. I meet someone and I just seem to intuit where that person would like to go on holiday, where that person needs to be in order to grow, who else I know that could help that someone on their way. From my all-encompassing vantage point, my altitude, I visualize the links, the lines that join the dots. I think, in their way, my two children help me do this. They ground me in my searches, my hunt for the common bond. Perhaps, too, other children call to me, the less fortunate, for I have actively donated my services for over ten years to the St. Jude’s Children's Hospital of Chicago - a part of my life that gives purpose and meaning and satisfaction.
