My Background

Fifteen years ago, I sold my interior design business to become a travel advisor and fulfill my dreams to see the world. I’ve since been to all seven continents by Land - Sea - Air and Rail. I love inspiring my valuable clients by going beyond their expectations and offering them Dreams they never thought possible. To me it is all about the "Travel Experiences" and long lasting memories to be cherished and shared with others. Inspiration is what I hope to offer you - be it as simple as a trip to see a city you have always longed to visit or as complex as a multi-generational adventure "Anywhere in the World".. I believe every Vacation should be a trip of a lifetime and a Inspirational journey. I hope you will allow me to make your "Dreams Come True" - call me at 832 381 4647 - rings at my desk !

My Inspiring Moments:

  • Arriving at the Mena House in Cairo late evening, opening the curtains to see the spectacular pyramids dazzling in the evening light
  • Seeing the sun rise over Machu Picchu
  • Whale-watching in Alaska from the Balcony of my cruise ship

My Specialties:

  • Europe. Each city has its own special culture and history. I love strolling down a street in Paris, taking in the aromas from the sidewalk cafés; discovering new trattorias and gelato stands in Rome; and getting caught in the rain in London.
  • Ocean and River Cruising - you can always feel secure with what’s planned every day. In port, I can help you realize the beauty of the cities or plan a private excursion to the countryside.

My Travel Certifications:

Regent Seven Seas Cruise Specialist, Crystal Cruise Specialist, Viking River Cruise Specialist, Uniworld River Cruise Specialist, Princess Cruise Specialist, Disney Cruise Specialist, Destination Europe Specialist, Destination Wedding Planner.

Joan has been my "go to" agent for years. She is an amazingly accurate detail person who finds the best means for us to travel. When we had to return early from our last trip, she was right there with the needed information----"only an email away" is her motto. I count on her from a short week trip to visit my kids, to a month long cruise/tour. She's the best.

I knew that I wanted to go on a photo safari but had no idea what how to evaluate all the options out there or what to look for. Lucky for me, Joan has sent a lot of people on safari and found the perfect trip for me. She has been my travel agent for many years and takes note of what I like, don't like, must see, etc. She is very responsive and responds to my calls/e-mails very quickly. She is knowledgeable, professional, thorough and helpful.
