My Background

We know that travel comes with a host of great benefits: you get to spend time with people you love; you get to see new things and try new things; you get to relax away from the pressures of work and everyday life; you get the thrill of realizing dreams you may have had for years and years. As it turns out, travel is the best way to spend your money. Of all the things you can buy, the experience of traveling gives you, by far, the most bang for your buck. All these great elements of travel have been proven to make people happier.

I am thrilled to have a job that allows me to make people happier! And, as a family travel agent, I am also privileged to be a part of bringing families closer together, It's really quite an honour!

I am so passionate about the work I do as a family travel agent. I get up every day excited to work with my clients to make their family vacation dreams come true, to connect with new clients and hear about the type of trip they are hoping to take, and getting messages from my clients telling me all about how great their vacations were shortly after they return home. I am so lucky to be able to say - I LOVE my job!

I have been a stay at home parent since my daughter was born in November of 2008. One thing that kept me going through the hard times (for me those were the baby years and especially during the rainy seasons) was looking forward to a family vacation. I've taken my family to Hawaii, Disneyland, multiple tropical all-inclusive destinations and on cruises. Traveling as a family has become very important and it seems my kids have inherited my wanderlust gene.

Once my kids were out of the baby stage I realized that I had time, energy, excitement and an untameable entrepreneurial spirit to start a business. I had a gut feeling that becoming a travel agent would be a good fit for me. I am very pleased to be affiliated with and trained by Travel Professionals International - Canada’s largest and leading network of independent travel agents.

I get so much satisfaction from my work as a travel agent as I believe travel brings the world together - making it a kinder, more accepting place for all people.
