My Background

Having been a travel agent since 1992, you could say it’s more than just a job for me. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to 35+ countries, so it really is a passion!

My specialties are luxury and family travel (I’m a Disney-accredited agent). I’ve also helped a lot of parents with 3 or 4 kids plan their holidays; and multigenerational families with the grandparents coming along too. Everything from your typical school break holiday to unforgettable experiences such as the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu.

I like to tell clients that I know when to spend the money – and when to not. That’s very important and they appreciate my honesty!

Off-the-beaten-path is also a favorite of mine, from the Robinson Crusoe feel of Australia’s Whitsunday Islands to Beaune in France – a small historical town country in the wine country near Dijon.

Away from the office, I love downhill skiing and running, and am a proud co-founder of the Shoebox Project which supplies small luxuries to women in shelters.
