My Background

I’ve been in the travel industry for over 12 years; my background was initially in administrative services, but I have always had a strong interest in travel. While I can book travel experiences all over the world, I tend to specialize in cruises (both ocean and river), with even more focus on river cruises in Europe for groups and individuals. I also specialize in finding resorts and hotels that offer something truly extraordinary.

Sometimes in the travel world, we view it as “DIY” (planning your own trip) vs. “using an advisor.” Obviously I believe you should use an advisor, but I don’t think it’s either/or. When I work with clients, I let them control as much of the planning as they want to do. I will suggest itineraries and be available to consult when it is most convenient for them, that could be evenings and weekends or regular business hours, but the planning process has to involve both sides.

I love to focus on the small details and make sure all the components are in place. That creates unforgettable experiences, and because so much of this business is word-of-mouth referrals, it can lead to new relationships. I consider my best reward in this job to be the tremendous feedback I receive.

Personally, Venice and Vienna are two of my favorite cities to visit.
