My Background

With a love for exotic and adventure destinations, my passion is taking a client’s innermost travel desires and pairing them with the perfect itinerary, taking particular pride in sincerely getting to know my clients and suiting their personalities to the appropriate level of relaxation, sightseeing, exploration and adventure.  I take equal pride in the relationships I have around the world and the benefits and considerations this offers my clients, inclusive of being a proud Virtuoso member and a Virtuoso Voyager Club Host.

I’m an aficionado of the Hawaiian Islands, where I’ve had the pleasure of visiting many, many times as a specialist since starting this wonderful career.  Two trips to Africa have been life changing experiences for me.  Some of my favorite activities include game drives in Africa, zip-lining in Costa Rica, scuba diving in St. Lucia, hiking in Patagonia, snowboarding in Canada, shopping in Italy and cooking classes in France.

Beautiful resort

By: Carolyn

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2015

We went to Live Aqua in Cancun Mexico. It was an awesome resort for an adults only all-inclusive resort. We enjoyed the cool jazz music by the pools and bed cabanas on the beach or pool, which came with a foot massage! There were good restaurants and we loved MB for the service and wine choices. It was a smooth fast ride from airport and took 20 minutes. I highly recommend this resort for a couple retreat.

Great trip to Venice and Dalmatian Coast

By: Jim In MD

Theresa did a great job in getting us Business Class with miles and stays at fabulous Hotel Danieli in Venice before and after small ship cruise to ports and islands in Croatia and Montenegro. Beautiful scenery, historic towns and many World Heritage Sites. All details were attended to so there was no anxiety and much enjoyment.

Great honeymoon

By: Randy

Reviewed on: 12 Oct 2015

Theresa was amazing in helping my wife and I plan our honeymoon. We were on the fence between two potential destinations (Maldives and Tahiti), and Theresa provided great options for each. Ultimately, we decided on the Maldives, and the itinerary Theresa put together made for the perfect honeymoon. She was knowledgeable and responsive. My wife and I strongly recommend her.

Well traveled and informed

I had no clue about where to go in Hawai, but Theresa has been there many times, therefore came to us with first hand experience. She planned the trip for Waikiki Oahu stay for four nights and even planned our Pearl Harbor tour. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency and had a blast. Then planned our five night Maui trip and even the Luau. Our stay at the Fairmont was magical with a fantastic view. Our final destination was for five nights at Big Island with a tour planned to go around the whole island. We were unexpectedly blown away with the sights around this half lava - half tropical island. Our stay at the Fairmont Orchid was just as magical with a breathtaking view. This was our honeymoon and everything was perfect perfect! Couldn't have planned it ourselves andTheresa is defintely the best choice!

Tauck Rhine Cruise

By: J and M

Reviewed on: 30 Sep 2016

This was our 12th trip with Tauck and they continue to provide great opportunities to see different areas of the world in a first class fashion. We started in Basel, toured beautiful Lake Lucerne and then started our cruise down the Rhine and Moselle rivers. We stopped in historic German, French and Luxembourg cities as well as some small German towns. The most beautiful part of the trip was cruising down the Middle Rhine with all of its picturesque towns and hillside castles and castle ruins. The newly commissioned ship was excellent and the food and wine were outstanding. Theresa's role was to arrange for the tour, a hotel stay in Basel and to obtain reasonably priced business class airfare between the US and Europe all of which she did very competently. This is also the 12th trip Theresa has arranged for us and we are obviously pleased with her friendly and professional ability to make everything work smoothly.

Great Service and Value

Theresa has worked with us for years and always provides great ideas and service within our budget. I had all but given up on going away this holiday when she called us and told she found us a great trip at our price point. She always follows up to see how things are going and makes sure we get little extras from the hotels where we are staying. We have recommended Theresa to friends and I would never work with anyone else.
