My Background

I started my travel company in 2008. When my daughter moved to Australia it was a natural that I become a certified Aussie Specialist and share my Australia destination knowledge with other travelers. Subsequently I expanded my certifications to include the 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist and South Pacific Specialist.

In my long-time career as a museum docent in my hometown of San Antonio, I realized I could share my love of art, history, culture, food and wine with others by helping them to travel well. It led me to start planning culture-focused, small group tours, as well as independent trips for couples and families.

Why You Should Use Me:

I am a lifelong learner on a mission of discovery and exploration- I am very education and culture-focused while keeping travel fun and active. I truly enjoy sharing art, history, and culture from around the world with travelers. I've been to over 20 countries, love itinerary planning, and love discovering new places and experiences.

My Specialties:

I have been to every state and territory in Australia, which adds depth to my Aussie Specialist Training. I am also a 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist as well as a South Pacific Specialist.

I also love Europe, cruises, and designing trips for independent travelers and small groups focused on art and culture.

I’ve done a lot of family travel – for a family wedding, we took 35 people on a cruise from Turkey to Athens. We organized private shore excursions and the captain actually performed the wedding on the ship.

My Favorite Travel Destinations:

Aside from Australia and New Zealand, I love Italy and am going back again next spring. I also love Belgium, but am always excited about my next destination.

My “Wow” Travel Moments:

  • Seeing Uluru (Australia) at sunrise and sunset.
  • Sunrise at Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia
  • Snorkeling and swimming in French Polynesia.
  • Make-your-own chocolate experience in Brussels.
  • Swimming with whale sharks in Western Australia

Special Moments For Clients:

For a small group we organized an anthropology/history tour of the Yucatan. We booked a Carnival cruise down to Cozumel and had a professor with us to do private tours of the ruins, lectures on the ship. It was the perfect price point and people had a great time.

For a special event- we worked with the chef on board the Azamara Journey to create a special wedding cake that fit the theme of a wedding in the Greek isles.
