Why We Travel
Since 1995, STAT has facilitated life-changing experiences for more than 300 women.

Erin Leider-Pariser began her wellness career as a fitness instructor in Los Angeles and trainer to the stars in New York City.

For the past 25 years, Erin has led STAT trips around the world and looks forward to all the adventures to come.
