My Background

I was raised in Mobile, Alabama and am a graduate of the University of Virginia. Having grown up with parents in the industry (and grandparents too!), I’ve loved starting my own career in the Travel Industry.

Travel has been an important and special part of life for my family, and cruises in the Caribbean and trips to France and Italy sparked my interest at a young age. Traveling has instilled in me an appreciation for other cultures, leading me to study languages and go on mission trips abroad. I also developed a love for cooking and foreign cuisines- I think I was the only one of my friends eating (and enjoying) pâté as a snack at age ten!

I’ve lived over a year of my life in Italy, studying abroad in Siena in college and working for a Virtuoso on-site based on Lake Como. It was during my semester abroad that I first discovered my interest in planning travel which led me to make it my career when I graduated.

Easy planning

Frances was a pleasure to work with on our trip to France. We traveled with our two younger children and she made every detail seamless and tailored to the needs of each family member. Her suggestions were perfect for the amount of time we had and the services she recommended and reserved for our family turned out to be 1000 times more helpful then we could have imagined. All in All Frances made our travels thoughtful and stress free. We all had a lovely time and her services were invaluable! We look forward to booking future trips with her assistance.

Peru-Spring Break 2018

She was great. It was my first time working with a Virtuoso advisor and she was fantastic, very patient, professional and so responsive. I know I ask a lot of questions and need a lot of details at times and Frances was always very nice and helpful. Our trip was customized just right for our family and we LOVED our guides with Lima Tours. We especially loved INKATERRA Hacienda Urubama hotel. The service and location was my favorite. We actually had a medical event with my son and right away Frances reached out and the entire team accommodated our requested changes. We brought back lots of memories and pictures and wonderful experiences. These were all enhanced because of Frances and her team at McCabe.

From start to finish, Frances helped us plan our dream honeymoon. She was able to remain within budget and find us accommodations that exceeded our expectations. We dreamed of honeymooning in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora. She offered us staying in a garden bungalow in Moorea then finishing off our honeymoon in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora. It was great experiencing both locations in Tahiti. A couple of months prior to our honeymoon, Frances provided a two lists of excursions an activities we could plan along with recommended dinner accommodations. We had many options to choose from. Also, during our honeymoon, she followed up with us to see if we needed any help with our planned excursions. It reassuring to have in her in contact while we travelled. I would definitely work with her again and have already recommended her to my family and friends for their future travel.

Perfect trip planned by Frances, would recommend her to anyone looking to go to Europe. The trip was flawless and couldn't have asked for a better planning experience.

Honeymoon Trip

By: Betsey

Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2018

This was the second trip that I have worked with Frances on and will continue to work with her on trips moving forward. Frances is not only knowledgeable in this area of work, but responsive, provides suggestions, and detailed. My honeymoon couldn't have been better or more organized. While away, there was potential for an issue with transportation. Frances notified me and stayed on top of the potential issue until it was worked through. I look forward to planning our next trip with Frances!!

Working with Frances was a great experience. I have always planned our trips in the past, but I really needed some help with this year's trip. Frances' recommendations were spot on! She was responsive, made sure we met all our deadlines, and was a great resource. Thank you!!

Frances is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to work with-- even going above and beyond to have the hotel print our tickets/vouchers when we left our travel packet at home. We never missed a beat!

Trip review

Frances was often less than responsive. Often it took her days to answer my emails and never provided helpful guidance regarding locations and resorts unless asked or generic information from the websites. She ultimately got the basic trip details done to our satisfaction but I felt that she just didn’t care that much.

Always very responsive

Frances did a great job in working with us for this year’s family vacation. She communicated well and provided good direction and options for our family of 9 including a baby. Her follow-up ensured that everything committed happened as planned. We highly recommend her and will use her again for future travel to Europe.
