My Background

I left the corporate world over 22 years ago to follow my absolute passion for travel and became a leisure travel consultant. I have been to 137 countries and to all continents and US states. I have been to all but 4 European countries and am an Aussie and New Zealand specialist. I love Africa and have traveled there 7 times.

One other specialty is cruising - I have been on 36 on rivers as well as oceans. I also have been involved with adventure and history travel for many years.

I was one of the first travel agents to earn the new VTA certification from ASTA. I have my MBA from Stanford and am one capstone away from my MLS from Rice. The only thing that approaches my passion for travel (besides my kids and beautiful new granddaughter) is history. My primary specialty is European history, especially the UK, but I present at history symposiums on many topics and love to teach people where to go to make history come alive! I would love to curate an experience for you!
