While travel has not always been my profession, it has always been my passion. After completing my education in Business Administration, I began my professional life as a school administrator working at a technical school, a four-year college, and then a school for the deaf, helping students and clients reach their professional goals and continuing education, while also raising 6 children of my own. For a while I also owned and managed a full-service salon. Through all this I never missed an opportunity to travel, exploring Italy, Paris, the Caribbean, and Hawaii with my husband and loving absolutely every moment of it. I always knew one day my passion for travel would lead me to my current profession.

Since becoming a Travel Specialist, I’ve had the opportunity to travel more extensively, and I’ve loved every moment of every country I’ve traveled to. In each destination I learn more and more which allows me to bring this knowledge and experience to you as my client. I can share the destination, experiences, culture, food, and best transportation methods with you so that when you arrive at a destination you feel comfortable and confident navigating each new place!

Being a Travel Specialist has allowed me to pursue my passion for experiencing the world. I have traveled to Italy several times (it’s my love), Greece, Austria (magical), France, London, England, Costa Rica, Germany, Amsterdam, Philippines, Jamaica, Mexico, Switzerland, and Ireland.

I truly believe there is a type of travel or destination out there for everyone, whether it be domestic or international travel, ocean cruises, or river cruises. I am passionate about planning vacations for people who want to see the world, experience and embrace different cultures, and make memories that will last a lifetime!
