My Background

I’ve been traveling my entire life and bring a wealth of experience to my job as a traveladvisor.

Originally from Germany, I grew up with Europe as my playground-- my family drove allover, every summer. I was a flight attendant for seven years and lived in Australia, the UK and India while managing daily flights within Europe, Africa,the Middle East and the Orient. Since 1983, I’ve lived in the U.S. and worked in travel coordination and advising, first in incentive and group travel and then totally focused on leisure travel. My husband, Chris, and I have owned our own travel business since 1993, first a full-service agency in Miami Beach and most recently CKIM Group, Inc. in Sebastian, Florida. It is great fun to be able to focus on our passion of yacht charters and share that passion with our clients, as well as share our expertise in Caribbean villa rentals. I especially enjoy planning unique adventure travel using the VAST collection (Virtuoso Active and Specialty Travel), helping clients experience such thrills as gorilla trekking in Uganda, biking through Tuscany and climbing Kilimanjaro.

I am a certified wedding and honeymoon specialist and am an expert in planning destination weddings—I’ve planned everything from an elopement in South Africa to a wedding party of 80 in the British Virgin Islands. Thanks to our affiliation with Virtuoso, I am able to go “all out” with added extras that ensure that everyone’s happy.

Whether I’m planning a wedding, an anniversary, a family reunion, or a weekend getaway, my goal above all else is to exceed my client’s expectations. Let me “go the extra mile” for you and help you get to know the world!
