Isabella Ott was born and raised in Vicenza (Italy), in a small hilltop village called Torreselle. Growing up in a bilingual household (American dad and Italian mamma), she developed a true passion for both cultures and has spent her life switching between the two in everything: language, food, traditions, etc. After graduating from high school, she moved to Venice to study languages, and has just recently completed her Masters in Linguistics at Ca’Foscari University. Isa adores traveling, and has been moving back and forth between Italy and the USA for most of her life. She is now based in Chicago, working as Sales Consultant at Olive Tree Escapes putting her knowledge of Italy to good use to build the perfect trips to the Bel Paese.
