My Background

Traveling the world is my passion. The word is so vast and each year I visit a new location, checking it off my bucket list.

I have 4 teenage children who have traveled with my husband and me since they were babies. I am a true believer that experiencing and discovering the world first hand has instilled an everlasting bond while making extraordinary memories with my family. From watching the sunrise and biking down Haleakala, square dancing in Colorado, horseback riding while watching the bison in the Tetons, touring the castles in Portugal, watching the sunsets in Oia, tapas tasting in Barcelona, rafting in the Okavango Delta with the hippos, and vineyard hopping in South Africa - all of these experiences have taken us away from being constantly connected to our phones and internet, and instead enjoying real "old-fashioned" time together as a family.

I am committed to my clients by diminishing their concerns, questions and confusion, transforming their vacations with freedom and ease, all while creating a vacation more magnificent than their last.

Excellent...she made the process of scheduling tours and restaurants, and booking the hotel seemless.

Deborah has made each trip she has booked for us special with her attention to detail and special extra touches. In addition to the fabulous Virtuoso amenities, she gives us a bottle of our favorite type of wine (which she always remembers) and for our anniversary an enlarged framed photo from our wedding was waiting in our room. She checks in to make sure everything is going smoothly. We cannot wait until we are free to travel overseas again. We have a lot of big trips for Deb to plan.
