I have over 7 years experience in helping people to plan their dream vacations. I have sent people on everything from custom planned trips, to all-inclusive vacations, to guided tour vacations. I listen to my clients needs and find the best supplier for them. Trainings are attended regularly to help me keep up on the current offerings from suppliers. I also attend webinars and in person trainings to learn more about destinations like Japan, the Caribbean, and Australia.
I have always been interested in the world around us. Many years ago I attended Bradley University as an International Studies major to learn about the different cultures and countries of the world. Today I still pursue that interest by sending my clients to those same countries. I only wish I had realized sooner how great it is to help people plan their dream vacations.
The agency where I previously worked was a CLIA (Cruise Line International Association Member) and I have continued that membership with my own agency. I have a CLIA CCC certification and I have extensive knowledge of the different cruise companies both river and ocean. I myself have been to the Caribbean several times and to Alaska on cruise ships. I have certifications with Viking, American Cruise Lines, Uncruise and Disney Cruise Lines. I have attended trainings on many of the river and ocean cruise suppliers and will continue to expand my certifications. I have also been on ship inspections with several of the companies that I have not sailed on.
My travels have taken me to Germany, England, Austria, and Italy in Europe. I went last year to Iceland in the winter and hope to return in the summer to enjoy the long days. I have traveled to Mexico and several Islands in the Caribbean. I have also explored most of the cities of Canada including Vancouver and Toronto. I planned a 100th birthday party for my Grandmother at Disney World and have been to Universal Studios on both coasts of the United States. I have traveled most of the United States and can help my clients find hidden gems in most of our great country.
I have planned custom tours to Japan, Australia and several cities in Europe. Helped clients go on guided tours to many areas of the world including Eastern Europe, Peru, Africa, the Galapagos and Easter Island. From Mexican All-Inclusives with contract air to Sandals Luxury vacations in Barbados and St. Lucia, I have planned them all. From short 3 day trips to 2 week safaris, I can help you whatever your budget.
Wherever you want to travel in the world, I hope that you will consider letting me help you to get there.
