My Background

I am an expert in crafting upscale vacations that allow you to relax and enjoy the finer nuances of any destination. I am trusted to design exciting adventures for my clients, some of which have worked with me for over 30 years. I have been fortunate to assist with the exploration of the world in many forms: relaxing vacations, honeymoons, family trips, and most importantly, bucket list adventures! Discovering what interests each client and incorporating those elements into their adventure is very important to me as I organize their worldwide journeys. I believe it is essential to understand what is important to each traveler in terms of accommodations, sightseeing, and interests in order to tailor their trip to match what they envision.

I am a proud Virtuoso advisor, which allows me to provide my guests with exclusive access, benefits, and frequent complimentary upgrades not accessible to the general public. Through my Virtuoso affiliation, I have a network of global contacts that I work with to make sure that my clients have the finest private sightseeing as well as suggestions for the best restaurant or other accommodations that serve their personal passions. I have hosted many Virtuoso Voyages and I am able to share those experiences with my clients.

I believe in the importance of continuing education through coursework, certifications, and travel. I consistently network with suppliers that cater to my client's interests in order to broaden my knowledge of products, places, and services.

Due to my personal travel and industry expertise, I have been published in Virtuoso’s ‘Best of the Best’ publication and other travel broadcasts.

The three things I love most about my profession are exploring the world and having new experiences, sharing those insights with my clients so I can curate a trip to make their dream vision a reality, and my personal favorite part, hearing about their trip when they return from their adventure.

I am an Accredited Cruise Counselor from the Cruise Lines International Association with specialist status on most cruise lines. I am a destination specialist for the Caribbean, Western Europe, Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, Walt Disney Vacations, Four Seasons, Belmond, Ritz Carlton, Sandals/Beaches, and snow skiing. I have worked with clients to plan around the world private jet tours and have had a lucky few who have visited all 7 continents!

Travel Experience: The majority of European countries, many countries in Africa, China, Russia, Mexico, Costa Rica, 95% of the Caribbean islands, most of the United States including Alaska and Hawaii, as well as Canada. I am very knowledgeable about ski destinations in the US and Canada in addition to golf in the US and Caribbean.

Cruise Experience: Regent, Seabourn, Silversea, Crystal, Windstar, Holland America, Disney, Princess, Norwegian, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Uniworld.
