My Background

I am an expert travel agent with the South Pacific as my specialty!

As a child, my father brought home a TWA calendar from a business trip. The glossy photos of iconic TWA destinations immediately struck me. Several years later, my grandparents moved from New York to Florida and I took my very first ride on an airplane alone at 8 years old to visit them! To this day, I still remember the excitement as I took my first steps inside the airport and from that moment on, I was hooked. I knew then and there that I wanted to grow up doing something in the travel industry.

That first flight from Newark to Florida would be one of my shortest journeys that I have taken. Far flung travels have taken me to: Tahiti (9 times and counting!), Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Europe, cruises and taking in the beauty right here in the wonderful United States. My family and I lived in Japan for nearly 3 years while my husband served in the US Navy in Yokosuka (3hrs drive from Tokyo).

During my nearly 30 years (and counting!) as a travel professional, crafting finely detailed journeys from the simple to sublime luxury designed to give you worry free unforgettable trips around the globe. Whether it is a destination wedding, honeymoon, anniversary, family vacation, group travel or simply a getaway, I have firsthand experience, deep industry knowledge and personal connections around the globe, to make your travel dreams turn into real experiential journeys to remember and share with your family and friends! Your Virtuoso benefits may include upgrades, early check in/late check out, meals, wine/champagne, tours and more! These present tremendous additional values not available to the general public when you book with me, your expert Virtuoso travel advisor.

My husband and I just returned home from our 2-week honeymoon to the French Polynesia all booked by Deborah and it was beyond amazing! Her knowledge level and experience traveling to this area is remarkable. We stayed in Moorea and Bora Bora at exceptional resorts that Deborah helped us decide which was the best fit for us. All of our excursions, travel details, etc were organized in a detailed travel itinerary which made our honeymoon seamless. We highly recommend Deborah and Virtuoso Travel!!

The title we chose for this review says it all. Friends of ours recommended Deborah to us us after returning from a wonderful trip to Tahiti that she had arranged for them. We found her to be all they said and more! We've had trips planned for us before, but none compared to the complete package she gave us. We had several phone conversations in which we talked about what we were looking for. She listen carefully and tailored it to be exactly what we wanted, and then some-and that is an understatement! The whole adventure went off without a flaw. Our bucket list has several more must visit places on it and we will to call on Deborah when we are ready to plan them!
