My Background

I was born in Europe and have been an avid traveler my entire life. Since I’ve always enjoyed the planning of trips (the more interesting and intricate, the better), I decided to turn my avocation into a full-fledged career as a travel advisor. I’m a good listener and know how to ask the right questions, so I’m able to design trips that mesh well with a client’s particular desires and “travel personality.” It’s so rewarding when a client returns from a vacation raving about the special experiences (riding elephants in Thailand, a private after-hours visit to the Vatican) I was able to provide.

My area of expertise: luxury cruises to Europe, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and French Polynesia. I’ve also designed customized honeymoons in Hawaii and French Polynesia. Since I plan my personal trips around food and wine, I’m adept at creating interesting food-and-wine-themed tours for clients on their vacations. And because I’m a skier – I especially love skiing in New England, the Western U.S. and European Alps – I’m a wealth of information about the best ski resorts in those destinations. I also recently became a Tauck Academy Certified Agent by participating in an intensive six-day training program in the northwest United States and Canada.

Every once in a while, travel plans go awry – such as a cancelled flight due to weather. Should that happen, you can count on me to look for solutions and get your vacation back on track. My goal: to become your lifelong trusted travel advisor.

From planning to execution, every detail of the trip was done to perfection. Personal attention and follow through at the highest level. I look forward to working with Brigitte and Park Avenue Travel for all our travel needs.

Very thorough and competent. Would recommend her any time.

Brigitte is a highly effective professional, who is very helpful and easy to work with. She has been particularly important to us, because we have had less successful experiences with other travel agents. She gets our vote !

A five star agent for five star travel experiences

By: 2old4coach


Reviewed on: 28 Feb 2013

An agent with impeccable taste. She has traveled in five star comfort and knows the best of the best in hotels, ships and airlines. The personal touch and attention to every travel detail has made her my favorite agent. I travel the world and have visited 71 countries on every continent and this agent has helped me travel in six star style.

It was a real pleasure to work with Brigitte. She handled two complicated trips to Europe and one in the U.S. for us. She listened, asked good questions, made excellent selections, and was very patient - all with a sense of humor. In addition, PAT's backup really saved us when Brigitte herself was traveling, and we got caught in an air traffic controller's strike in Europe. Thank you Beth! We would highly recommend both Brigitte and PAT!!

This was our 8th Tauck tour, all of them booked through Park Avenue. We were a congenial group of 38. The trip provided the right amount of scheduled and free time and we thought the meals arranged by Tauck were especially good. While we had a fair amount of rain and low clouds, the sun came out whenever we wanted to take a picture. Tom O was a very knowledgeable tour director and we came away from the trip with a new appreciation of Canadian History.

Although Brigitte and I have never met and do not live in the same section of the country, I feel as if she is my local representative. She is a pleasure to work with and is very responsive to each and every inquiry promptly and efficiently. She was a great help in putting together our last trip to Croatia and I look forward to having her work on our next trip to the Basque region. I have recommended her to several friends and they agree...she and her Virtuoso agency do a great job.

We have been booking travel with Park Avenue for over 20 years, the last several with Brigitte since she joined the staff. Sometimes we know what we want to do and other times we look to Brigitte for suggestions. We have ALWAYS been delighted with the end result. She has gotten to know us well and takes our likes and dislikes into consideration as well as encouraging us to try new things. Her delightful personality is an added bonus!

We had a great trip to Sicily and greatly enjoyed British Air's World Traveler Plus, for which we thank Brigitte. Our return was delayed first by an eruption of Mt. Etna then a hurricane in southern England. We are glad to be home after six trips since June.

Brigitte is very easy to work with. Good suggestions, and quick response when unforeseen events require changes in plans. We had a situation earlier this year , where a snow storm in the east, left us grounded in Panama City. Brigitte got us home the next day via San Juan, while the others on the Tauck Tour were stranded for a few days.

Once again Brigitte has done a fantastic job planning and arranging our trip! She is a pleasure to work with. But what I really want to compliment her on is how much time and effort she put in to try and resolve an airline problem for us. Our return flight from Lisbon to San Diego was overbooked in Business Class by SIX seats and they were unwilling to reroute us or make any accommodation for us even though we had been confirmed with seats since December 2013. She spent days dealing with US Airways , even going so are as to elicit the help from Virtuoso's travel representative while we were in Portugal, and since we returned she has continued working on our behalf. I couldn't ask for a more dedicated and professional travel specialist. I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so. Virtuoso should be very proud to have Brigitte representing their organization.

Brigitte was recommended to me by a client of mine and I called her with not much time to work with as I was late with planning a trip to Italy. Brigitte could not have been more helpful! With not much time to work with she recommended some great hotels and arranged transfers and hotels quite quickly. We were working back and forth for a few weeks and she quickly returned my calls and even called directly to Italy to confirm our last minute arrangements. She even called me back in the evening and weekend to follow up on the plans. I would highly recommend Brigitte and her agency to anyone planning a trip. It was a great experience for using this business for the first time! Thanks again Brigitte. We had a fantastic vacation!!!

On very short notice Brigitte put together a wonderful trip to Jamaica.
