As a travel advisor I love helping people to get the most out of their travel. I especially love working with people planning small ship & river cruises as we have taken many trips on the River and I have great insight into how to best travel this way. In addition, expedition trips and cruises are my personal favorite trips not only to take myself but I love sending clients out on an expedition!. Be it the Galapagos Islands, Antarctica, Polar Bear trekking or venturing off into the wilds closer to home this type of travel is fantastic for those seeking adventure and out of the ordinary experiences. Our personal expedition cruises to Antarctica (twice!) the Artic and the Galapagos Islands are our trips ever! Truly there are a lot of cruise lines saying they go to these places, but like river cruise there are cruise lines that do this type of travel better than others and I enjoy helping people find the best way to go.

I also love to explore on land - seeing things from the perspective of a Mountain Gorilla or trekking through a primeval forest bring a perspective to life that I believe is the true benefit of travel. There are a lot of options when you book your ultimate bucket list trips and it's important to me to match the right experience to my clients so that it meets and exceeds their expectations.

My passions in life are travel and the sport of curling. Yes the sport you see in the winter Olympics. I have been curling now for 11 years and love every minute of playing the sport as well as the sense of community that curlers have with each other.

I work with my clients to create a deeper understanding of their travel desires for the trip we are working on as well as the future. This allows me to build a relationship with my clients where I specialize in you and we map out a game plan of experiences as well as a budget for you and what you want to get out of your trip. Listening to my client's big picture travel goal for each trip allows me to make suggestions of best times to travel in a way that will maximize both their time and their investment while making their priorities in every trip a reality.
