My Background

I have been working in the travel industry since 1978, when I started working for Delta Air Lines.

My career now, as a travel advisor, is my dream job--every client is different and every vacation I plan is different. I have a great long-term perspective on the travel industry and it help in understanding my clients needs and desires.

Every vacation I plan is memorable, I treat each one as if were my own and that's why they are so special. Travel is my passion.

My Specialties:

I try to visit 2-3 new destinations each year. I find Italy and Ireland both to be so appealing that multiple trips are always full of new surprises. I have many clients who travel as multi-generational groups and I know the importance of making sure everyone, regardless of their age, has something special to experience.

I have traveled to Cuba multiple times and consider myself an expert on travel to Cuba. With all the changes coming to this wonderful destination, it's good to have an expert on your side.

I am very experienced selling and planning cruise vacations. There are so many choices these days. It's my job to help clients decide what is the best option for their vacation.

My WOW Travel/client moments:

  • coming out of the subway at the Coliseum stop in Rome, it's right there It never gets old!
  • a client couple taking their last trip to Paris due to illness and getting them upgraded to the Eiffel Tower suite at the Shangri-La Paris, she called me crying with happiness. It made me realize how wonderful my job is.
  • the sound of the wheels of the airplane being lowered for landing....a new adventure begins!

September was a joy to work with. She planned our Italian Adventure down to the minute. We worked together for several months to ensure the best vacation possible. She is very thorough and was great following up on our requests. We trusted her little blue folder with our lives during the trip and found it to be very helpful in keeping us on track. I would definitely recommend her to friends and use her services again when we plan a big trip.

I was planning a spontaneous trip to NYC and looked at hotels on Trip Advisor. I saw onein Soho that looked good but thought I should check in with September who plans most of my trips. She came up with a different hotel in the same area. It was so much fun! September always comes through with the best advice. she is also so thoughtful and works to get us perks wherever we go. She is the best!!

We love September, she takes care of everything. She handles our elderly parents and reassures them. She has great ideas and follows up on things. I can just send an email with what we want and she figures it out! I would highly recommend her to everyone.

Excellent! However, I sometimes think she rushes payment on travel as many of our Backroads trippers had signed up two weeks prior! Also, Hotel in Queenstown was not ideal.

I could not be happier than I am with the service that September provided. She helped me with my trip to Vietnam and it was incredible. Thank you

It was a pleasure working with September. She provided exceptional service, giving us several cruise options and then taking care of all the details, including trip insurance, once we made our decision. Our Galapagos cruise was fabulous and exceeded our expectations.
