My Background

I began my career in travel in 1983 after completing Traveline's School of Travel. I joined Traveline's family of advisors until 2011 when I became Director of Leisure Services . Direct Travel purchased our agency. in 2016 so that we can continue to handle our clients' travel.

This industry has certainly changed over the years but our clients' need for great service has remained constant. We specialize in creating customized vacations and unique travel experiences for the individual. I am a Certified Travel Counselor as well as a Specialist on Caribbean, Mexico and South Pacific destinations. I have traveled to the best diving locations throughout the world. I look forward to helping clients find their perfect trips and have them return stating " we exceeded their expectations".

The ship, the staff, the itinerary were superb. The weather was 90% but didn't dampen our fun!

We have been with Jennifer for many years and she has come to know our likes and dislikes. Jennifer is a good listener and provides options for our review. She pays attention to details and keeps us updated. We have also recommended her to many of our friends, some of who have used her services, too,

We have been working with Jennifer for many years. She now knows what are demands and what are are our limitations. She always comes through to plan a travelling plan suitable to our age and budget. We traveled all over the world with tours and also on our own -- either just two of us or with our family or our friends.

Wonderful Trip

By: Happy Camper

We went on a family trip of 12 ( from age 5 to 75) to Alaska this month (7/2018) with Jennifer’s help. It was a land trip starting out from Fairbanks then to Denali via Dome Rail. The same train took us to Anchorage. We picked up two SUVs and spent rest of trip touring Girdwood and Seward. She did a wonderful job to coordinate the trip since part of family lives in West Coast. The trip went seamless. Jennifer has done other trips for us over the years. But, this trip was outstanding because of the length, size and ages. Thank you Jennifer.

She was amazing. I walked into her business, not knowing anyone and said “ I want to go to Alaska”. She immediately took care of me and gave me lots of options and suggestions for our trip. After we decided what tour, she planned and set up the whole vacation including the airfare etc . She also added an excursion that was outside of the tour, she kept us informed. She was very organized, knowledgeable and we had absolutely no problems . She did it all for us, so easy !!!

Disney Dream

Working with Jennifer is fun because she has so much experience and knowledge. Our trip was great and effortless due to Jennifer's planning. From the minute we arrived the day before our cruise to actually not waiting more than 5 minutes to check into the ship was amazing. This was a special anniversary trip and Jennifer made it so much more special.

Great Trip to the West

Working with her was easy and her suggestions were great. We learned a great deal and would use her again. She does care how your planning and trip goes . I would suggest a little earlier information to us before the trip and make sure you go over everything again so we know what to expect and can make personal plans a bit earlier, say 45 days before we travel!

Jennifer was great. We had 7 people, coming from 3 locations and she managed to get all of us on coordinated flights that arrived...and left...within an hour of each other. We were amazed at how well-coordinated everything was. Would definitely use Jennifer for our next trip.
