My Background

A native of Drabenderhöhe, Germany, Denise has spent much of her life traveling the globe, gaining crucial travel experience in some of the most respected destinations in the world.

Experience through a six month collegiate residency in Nice, France has provided a refined appreciation of the beauty and romance in the French language, its people and its landscape.

Leading three separate 45 person + educational tours through Europe, she provided the travels of a lifetime working closely with local guides in the countries of Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and France.

Through experiences at magnet destinations such as The Great Wall of China, The Colosseum, Brandenburg Gate and Sagrada Familia to more intimate travel within Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Canada, and Mexico, Denise has cultivated the world knowledge and experience that is essential to successful travel advising.

Denise’s travel planning experience is extensive and real. Her first job in the industry was as a cross-trained agent for a major airline, planning, booking (and re-booking!) hundreds of customers through good times and bad, coupled with the complete planning, booking and execution of each of the three separate European tours mentioned above, Denise has most likely “been there, done that” when it comes to planning and executing travel itineraries.

Her formal education includes a dual degree in International Affairs and French Language from Transylvania University in Lexington, Ky and a Master’s degree in Foreign and Secondary Language Education from The Ohio State University.

She continues to bring her excitement for global culture awareness and travel to her two children with bilingual (English/German) education and world adventure at every opportunity.

Honing a passion for caring, communication, and attention to detail, Denise takes great pride in exceptional travel experiences for her clients. She looks forward to each client’s next travel pursuit as her own.

Denise holds a Hawaii Destination Specialist Certification.

Denise was fantastic! She handled every aspect of my reservation and offered many suggestions that made the trip with my daughter super easy. She was knowledgeable on many fronts and even helped dig up answers to the passport questions i had. The trip packet that she created was amazing and she took her time explaining every detail of my itinerary. I went into this trip with the comfort of knowing what to expect and what to do.

Picture Perfect Trip!

Denise was fantastic! From the time I met her until the time our trip was over (and after) everything was absolutely perfect. She listened to everything and made wonderful suggestions that fit both my husband and me. She checked in to make sure everything was good, she set up the most wonderful pre-trip booklet (which I LOVED) and explained everything so there was no question. I dream about this trip often and I have Denise to thank!

Italy Trip

By: Tanya

Reviewed on: 23 Jan 2019

Denise did a great job of narrowing down what we really wanted to do and see on a first time trip to Europe. We had nothing specifically in mind so Denise was able to put a few different opportunities together and we figured out we really wanted to see Italy. I think the best thing was the final booklet she put together for us and the travel packet of individual maps for each excursion we were doing. We had a fantastic trip and memories to last a lifetime thanks to her organization.

Fantastic. Was always available for me, was incredibly accommodating, very personable and was a very responsive person. I will be recommending her to anyone who travels and needs a travel agent!

Dream European Excursion

By: Carrie T

Reviewed on: 13 Sep 2019

Working with Denise was the best decision I ever made when planning my Europe trip for this past summer. I sent her bare minimum requirements and she did all the leg work. Denise sent a manageable volume of information based on our preferences, where we were never overwhelmed, but still had plenty of options. The activities she presented and hotels she had chosen based on our needs all exceeded expectation. She was available 24/7 for questions before, during and after the trip. I also had some strange requests (ex: finding me a list of gyms to workout at during the trip) that she did not question and figured out for me right away. She also went above and beyond to get me reservations to a Michelin star restaurant even though many were closed for the holiday. I would/am using Denise again to plan any dream vacation and would recommend her whole-heartedly. She cares about you and your trip and will make it something special to remember!

Denise is the Best!

Denise went above and beyond to book this trip for us as she offered sound advice with every detail. I have recommended her to several friends and will book with her in the future. We could not have been more happy with Denise because without her guidance I could have never been able to navigate all the particulars. This was a trip of a lifetime for our family and she was the best! Thank you Denise, it was everything we imagined and more. You're the BEST!!!!!
