My Background

I am passionate about travel and learning as much as I can about this beautiful world we live in. My first travel business was in college; planning, selling and chaperoning spring break and summer trips. During my 20’s, I traveled through Europe on a shoe string budget. I have had my own business as a Group Retreat Planner and Facilitator for 15 years and I love to plan group and multigenerational travel. My family and I are all scuba certified and go on three week, luxury vacations around the world each summer as well as special scuba trips and ski vacations.

I'm a perfectionist and a connector and it makes me very happy to have a part in helping people plan truly memorable vacations. My attention to detail, industry knowledge, global relationships, and personal experience will add tremendous value and make your travel planning more enjoyable. I can validate your own research, and offer insightful recommendations to tailor each trip to your preferences, interests, and budget. Allow me to make your travel planning more efficient and save time and money.

As a Virtuoso Travel Advisor, I have access to our global network of hotels, tour operators, cruise lines, private guides, and more to create personalized, customized trips for you. If you book through me, I can access Virtuoso exclusive experiences such as private shore excursions or behind-the-scenes tours, plus lots of hotel perks, such as room upgrades, spa and dining credits, and free breakfast. My affiliate, Travel Edge also has preferred partnerships from hotels, air, tours and cruises with exclusive discounts and extra amenities.

I’d love to plan your next travel experience at a time and place that suits you. Personal connections are important to me, and I’d love to collaborate with you and bring your dreams alive.

If you are interested in taking your travel planning to another level, I am one of a few select Virtuoso Wanderlist Certified Advisors. Wanderlist is a Travel Portfolio Plan to build your bucket list and curate the best trips for your family over a few years time. Its a deeper relationship with my clients where I specialize in you and we map out a game plan of favorite places, types of travel and experiences as well as a budget for you and all your extended travel companions. I then offer suggestions of best times to travel where and I keep abreast of your needs long term by looking out for special offers and opportunities within the travel community.
