My Background

I love to travel and share those experiences with people! My favorite destinations are the "undiscovered" and "off the beaten path".  I enjoy getting to know people through the process of planning their trips.  Since I've been a travel advisor for 27 years, it's obvious I enjoy my career.

I am a Certified Travel Advisor, an accredited Virtuoso advisor and Disney Specialist.

She is always attentive and very prompt to our requests. She always arranges 5 star stays for us and the whole trip runs so smoothly from our airfare to rental cars to tours and hotel accommodations.

After getting a contract on my house, I was not able to take this trip. Denise had done an excellent job of helping me plan and then got the best rates on air, hotel and car rentals. She also helped me cancel this trip. I am still awaiting the refund for the airfare, but I'm certain it will come. I will definitely use Denise again! She's the best.

Denise was so helpful. I was not sure what I wanted to do as far as a vacation but she showed me many options and took her time to find the prices for each and acctually enjoyed helping me to find the perfect vaction. We absolutely loved or trip and my 2 daughters acctually cried when we came home. I had never booked a cruise before and all of the information on the internet was confusing and she made it so easy. We are so thankful for her time.

ABSOLUTELY---actually, I have!

I recently completed TWO separate trips this holiday season. The first one was a challenge because I was "catching up" with two other folks who had booked themselves via the internet.While Denise chuckled the whole while, she WAS able to hook me up and book the exact match.(there were at least two unnecessary stops/layovers.)On both trips, she even booked my seats---at the window, just as I like. Thank you for the opportunity to praise her!

The best travel agent ever!!!

Denise has been my travel agent for 14 years and there is no trip, no request that she doesn't attack with enthusiasm and diligence. She is always professional, tries to find us the most cost efficient plan and yet arranges first class accomodations and tours. I love her and would recommend her to anyone without reservation. She always goes above and beyond my expectations.

Highly Recommend

Travel Arrangement Experience

We had been talking about this trip for "one day in the future".  When that day came and was actually a reality, Denise took care of everything smoothly so all I had to do was be excited.  This was an awesome vacation and I appreciate all Denise arranged for us.

Very patient!

Disney has too many options for one person to figure out and get the best experience your first visit.  Denise was very patient with my questions, researched for me and had great advise!  Could not have done this without her.   The prepaid meals, photos, etc were her suggestions and a fantastic one!  (I also booked the entire trip for the wrong week, she had to redo everything, bless her heart). 

Solid Work

Denise did a great job in booking my trip. I was all the way out in California and she took care of everything. When I got to Texas everything was waiting for me and in order. Thank you Denise! We had a great trip!

We had a wonderful trip, thanks to Denise's helpful planning. She made arrangements with limited time to do so. She also helped us with things that we would not have thought of with her professional advice and expertise. I have used her before and will use her again in my travel plans since I have complete confidence in her ability to provide thoughtful and personal arrangements.

The Mountain of Alaska

By: JA

Reviewed on: 14 Sep 2015

Getting to see the Denali Mountain, three times, was a rare treat. Most people don't get to see it because of the weather. Carol, a Athabascan local and guide, saw it ten times during this summer season. Now she can add 3 more times. It's a creation thing. The train to Whittier goes through a tunnel and there sat the Grand Princess. Get off the train, walk across the street, get on the ship. On this trip you're like a kid in a candy store, buy some more. Now that's called marketing.

Great planning!
