My Background

My interest in travel began as a child road-tripping around the United States.  I spent my junior year in college studying abroad in Lyon, France, and then ventured throughout Europe.  In the years since, I've visited more than 90 countries, with an emphasis on Europe and South America.

I love arranging special interest itineraries-immersive wine tasting in Tuscany, historical and cultural travel throughout France-as well as escorting small groups on river cruises, whether they're the classic European routes or more adventurous journeys such as China's Yangtze River and others in Southeast Asia.  But my favorite destination is the one that I'm heading to next.  To me, travel is about novelty.  It's discovering a new destination and staying put there long enough to engage with the locals and to get to know and understand their culture.  I look forward to sharing that with you.

Meg was very knowledgeable about England, its transportation systems and she answered our questions confidently. We would certainly contact her again regarding future trips. She has also been most helpful in dealing with United Airlines regarding our request for a refund for the last leg of our trip which was ultimately cancelled at the last minute at 11 p.m. We very much appreciate her efforts in this regard.

Meg always goes "the extra mile" for her clients. She is very helpful and friendly. Because of her own travels, she is very knowledgeable about places to travel to, what to see and do. She is very accessible to her clients. My sisters and I have used her for 20 years. We've referred several friends to her and they've praised her and thanked us for the referral. I would continue to highly refer friends to her.

It was the day before Christmas Eve and I needed to get home. All the flights to anywhere were full. Thankfully Meg was working. I emailed her (from a bus crossing the arctic tundra) my situation and asked her to find a flight out of Anchorage that would get me home for Christmas provided I could get to the airport Christmas Eve. She not only found a flight, I ended up with decent seats, and I made it home in time to spend Christmas with my family.

Meg recommended a great getaway for my husband and I. She was very resourceful and found a vacation that met our expectations. For our trip, we went to the Memories Resort in the Grand Bahamas.

We requested help for a trip to Scotland and England which involved internal flights recommended by family which we were unfamiliar with. All went well (even the weather!) except for the cost of checked baggage on a Flybe flight from Inverness to Birmingham. We were charged 40 British pounds per checked suitcase! We protested and the staff person sympathized but we were trapped. A family member had checked us in so I do not know if it would have been possible to pay ahead. In that case, the cost would have been less but still higher than in the US. We were told that this is a common practice with the so-called "low cost" airlines; Ryanair was recently called to task by their customer base. . We were fortunate in having family to drive us around and really appreciated being met by a driver at Heathrow. Our agent had recommended "comfort" seating on Delta Airlines and those seats were greatly appreciated, especially on our return journey.

Meg helped my mother and I plan a great Canadian cruise! She took care and patience with us, as it took over a year to finalize our travel plans. She was honest about her reviews of the itineraries, ports and ships that helped lead us to our decision on cruising with RCCL's Legend of the Seas. Meg is always quick to respond to phone and email communications and willing to go the extra mile in tying up all the finer details. I love that she follows up after travel with a "welcome home!" and genuinely wants to hear a review of how our vacation plans worked out. She is an asset and whenever someone needs the expertise of a travel agent, I don't hesitate to pass along her as my contact. Thank-you!!!

Meg assisted my out-of-state and long time high school friend and I in planning our Caribbean cruise on RCCL's Liberty of the Seas. She was quick to respond and discuss options to make the travel experience the best it could be- I think it worked because my friend (who was a first time cruiser) is all ready to plan another cruise! Meg is always organized and a step ahead with details; she was even able to help us find a last minute deal on an upgraded stateroom and assist with pricing for our spontaneous friends that decided to join us on our vacation three days before sailing. Meg is top-notch and always willing to go above and beyond throughout the vacation process, from brainstorming destinations to follow-through post vacation bliss. Thank-you!!! :)

Meg. Was. AH-MAZING! I got married aboard the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship Grandeur of the Seas, while at sea. Working with her was a breeze, and she was very attentive and got back to me each and every time I would email her within the hour. (It was kinda amazing how on top of that she was) Working with Royal Caribbean's outside company they use for all the weddings, Royal Romance, was not as easy, but Meg worked her magic several times to get people to call me back, or reply to emails when I hadn't heard from them in over a week. If I didn't work with her, I know I would of had a much worse experience, and probably canceled everything because of how poorly that company communicates. My guests who were in the group (16) all had the same wonderful experience with her and that makes me feel comfortable when I can let someone else take care of things and not have to worry that they wont get the same service I am getting. An A+ and 5 Gold Stars! I couldn't have done it without her!

My husband recently went to Fr. Poly.

Perfect trip!

Meg set up the perfect travel (including accommodating last minute changes). Our travel to Germany included business, as well as personal and Meg was able to accommodate plane reservations (including a last minute change due to business calendars), as well as train and other hotel reservation changes. The hotel in Frankfurt (Mecure Kaiserhof) was convenient to the train station and clean, but no air conditioning and on a busy crowded street. The hotel was convenient and clean, included a good breakfast and had free wifi. The Le Meridien in Stuttgart was wonderful and hotel was beautiful. We received a great price for the stay, but should warn travelers that the breakfast is expensive and mediocre. There was a lot of construction around the Le Meridien due to the building of the new train station, but you are near the paved walking trails and an abundance of parks, along with a convenient walk to the city center which contains lots of shopping and restaurants. Great trip overall!!

That was an amazing trip with lots to do. After discovering so many fun places in Croatia I want to travel more! With all the history I learned I'm excited to see things outside of the United States. The service was incredible!! Meg gave me some pointers and I was set. The plane schedule was perfect for all of the customs and airport security! She found a great deal with Delta after a few days of deciding on details of the trip. The hotel she picked was quiet and comfortable and they gave us the one with open windows on the canal in Venice. Thank you Meg for your suggestion.
