My Background

My introduction to the travel industry was in 1989 when I graduated from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary.  For me, a career in travel opens the door and  gives me the opportunity to encounter the world, to share my experiences with friends and help them create memorable journeys and dreams of their own.    I truly value all the relationships I have built over the years and believe that together we can create lifetime experiences that will be cherished forever.

My focus is working together to make my clients are  comfortable and satisfied with the journeys on which they are about to travel.  I am proud to be a Certified Travel Consultant for the past 24 years and am the recipient of the 2007 Travel Professional of the Year Award for Alberta and the Northwest Territories. 

 I personally have traveled extensively throughout the world and would love to share my experiences with you.  A few of the places on my list are Tahiti, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, India, Turkey, Armenia, Israel, all places in Europe as I had back packed and later when back on a Mediterranean Cruise, Northern Baltic Cruise, Iceland cruise, and two river cruises.   Other areas are China, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea,  Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan.  I have also been to Peru, Mexico and of course various cities all over North America and the Caribbean. 

I have a passion to travel, learn the history of my destination, and see it all.   I would love to share with you and have the opportunity to help you orchestrate your dreams and adventures..  Please do not hesitate to call me or email me with your future travel plans - let's start creating today!!  

cheers Lesley

Puts the excellent into excellence

Personable, knowledgeable, accessible, conscientious..I could go on and on. Lesley is far and away the best travel person I've dealt with. From the initial phone call to getting on the plane all of the details were taken care of--her approach lets one travel with confidence knowing that there is little chance that anything will go sideways and if for some reason it does, Lesley will be there to make it right. She is simply brilliant--the best!!

Leslie is always friendly, eager to get the best deal and best flights that work with my schedule (no matter how crazy the request might be) whenever I book with her and she takes the time to explain things and ensure I understand all my options. She's quick to return messages and email, and she's so easy to work with. Would recommend her (and have) in a heartbeat :)

Lesley was a true professional,competent and knowledgeable. She provided us with excellent service which resulted in us having a wonderful holiday with no unforeseen hitches. She planned our flights, our cruise, our transfers and excursions explaining each to us in explicit detail before our departure. We found Lesley to be a warm and sincere person to work with and would definitely use her again in planning our next vacation.

Leslie is simply the best. She has bent over backwards for me to get me what I want. I also am aware of her kind and heartfelt assistance for a friend of mine whose father died in Turkey. Leslie moved heaven and earth to make that terribly painful time as simple as possible for the whole family, who happened to be on a cruise.

Lesley has been our travel agent/advisor of choice for many years. In fact, we've never thought of seeking anyone else out because of the consistently good service she provides. We try to travel internationally at least a couple of times every year and complete a lot of research about where we're going to visit. Once we have an approximate plan in place we consult with Lesley who is always able to add value by bringing forward suggestions that make sense because they're aligned with what we're seeking. That's great service.

Lesley went above & beyond to help a group of ladies go on a vacation together.  She arranged purchases to be delivered on board ship, filled out all info required by the ship which I'm sure is not part of what she is supposed to do.  Hotel arrangements were made for us.  And followup done.  A definate asset to your team

Lesley booked our 15 day Princess Panama Canal cruise for us. We had family coming from three different locations. Lesley managed to have us all meet up in Toronto within 1/2 hour of each other so we could head to Fort Lauderdale together. Everything we needed for documentation was provided, and Lesley answered all my pre-cruise questions (and I ask lots of questions). We have used Lesley for over eight years now and recommend her to everyone. Our friends in BC even use her. Best travel agent ever! and best cruise ever.

I just returned from a visit to Israel and Jordan and it was absolutely amazing. Lesley, who had toured the area in recent months, had so many excellent suggestions for things to see and do. She connected with an Israeli tour company that arranged the group and private tours that I was interested in. I would recommend Israel and Jordan to anyone, especially now in Jordan where tourism has suffered as a result of perceptions about security. In particular, I found it reassuring to work with experienced guides who ensured that I felt safe during my three-week visit. This is the third trip I've planned with Lesley's guidance, and I certainly will be working with her with any future travel plans.

Lesley was fantastic in helping us plan my husband's milestone birthday. Planning began in April 2016 - she kept us informed, provided options and was diligent about each detail. When we finally embarked on our Alaskan/California Adventure - it was spectacular. Her knowledge as a travel advisor and ability to help us on a couple of sticky situations was such a relief. Travel is bound to have the odd issue or challenge - that's just life - nothing is perfect. With her help we faced each issue and resolved them to everyone's satisfaction. It was so special - Thank you Lesley as usual you are a wonderful advisor and know us so well to understand our needs away from home.
