Vacation Planning Specialist

For many years I was helping people with vacation ideas and planning as a hobby. I wasn't a travel agent, but I helped many people organizing their trip. After years of doing this as a hobby, my husband encouraged me to become a certified agent. I turned my hobby into a dream, of becoming a vacation planning specialist. I have been in the industry for several years. I have personally traveled to many places to acquire first hand knowledge of the destinations. 

Planning dream vacations that make long lasting memories for clients is a passion. I enjoy matching my clients' to just the right travel experience to meet their needs, and more importantly, exceed their expectations.

Throughout the years, I have traveled to the South Pacific islands of Tahiti, Hawaii, and Fiji. I have also explored most of the islands in the Caribbean along with several areas of Mexico as well as Central America. Some of my further away international trips include Europe, Peru, Qatar and India.

Travel is always a special thing in people's hearts. Travel doesn't just allow us to see unique places and cultures, but builds memories that last forever with our friends and families. My goal is to help my clients with a guided process to create a memorable journey, whether it is a trip with a group, vacation with your family, or a romantic hideaway.

I pride myself in working with the best tour operators, hotels, resorts, transportation companies and cruise lines in order to ensure you are getting the best value and experience. Lets build memories that will last a lifetime!!!
