Multi-Year Award Winning Travel Advisor

“You have to go in order to know.” This is something I believe VERY strongly in. How can someone recommend a destination if one has never visited it and become immersed in the culture?

2023 marks 11 years as a full-time travel professional. I have personally visited Cancun/Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, & Los Cabos close to 100 times since 2012. I’ve also hopped a plane to the Hawaiian Islands over a dozen times. Jamaica is also close to my heart, as I’ve been to the land of "no worries, mon" eight times and visited various other Caribbean islands including the beautiful Dominican Republic and Aruba. All of these beautiful destinations are my areas of expertise and I have spent years developing relationships with the resort sales staff and their tour operator partners, getting to know them and their properties inside and out, all in an effort to better service my clients.

My passion is helping couples plan their destination weddings at all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, but I also book romantic trips for couples, social groups such as friends getaways, corporate incentive groups, and reunions. Resorts realized that partnering with travel advisors to bring destination weddings to them was a match made in heaven; after all, we are the ones who know the ins and outs of the properties and already the relationships with the resort staff from sending business to them over the years.

Prior to joining in the ever-changing travel industry, I worked 23 years in the media (radio & television), most of it spent helping other businesses grow by asking questions so I could understand their needs in order to recommend the best course of action to reach their own sales and marketing goals. A big part of my job was also planning events and promotions around my clients, which has really come in handy as a Destination Wedding Specialist. I believe transitioning into the travel industry was such a natural progression for me: it married my love of helping people find the best fit for their needs with my passion for travel, and it has been "happily ever after" for me and my new career choice ever since!

I look forward to helping create lasting memories through travel for you, your family, & friends!

La Casa de la Playa in Riviera Maya

"Our wedding brought everyone together in paradise. Instead of one night of celebrating, our best friends & family from both sides were able to bond & create relationships, so by the wedding night, everyone was family.” – Chelsey & Mark G.

"We booked our one year anniversary trip with Erika! Not only was the trip amazing, but the assistance in choosing a location and service until the time we left was also fabulous! We will definitely continue to use her for our future vacations!" - Shannon & Josh C.

"We've been wanting to take a trip to Mexico for the beach but it's so difficult due to my latex allergy. Erika was amazing making sure we found the perfect resort that would be safe. She's gone above & beyond what we expected." - Lori & Keith S.

For Business or Pleasure - Ask for Erika
Reviewed By Heather S - Charleston, SC | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Erika is available to answer any question I have (even the silly ones)! She is a great resource for all of my business travel and I use her for personal travel as well! She's been great helping us plan our upcoming Disney vacation and is dedicated to helping us have a great time and remain within a budget.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

Amazing and care-free trip
Reviewed By Andy - Dallas, TX | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I’ve never used a travel agent before, as I never really saw the value. But having Erika manage all the details of this trip made it so easy and fun! She’s my first call for any future international trips or vacations.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

Attention to detail with a variety of bookings
Reviewed By Matt L. - Frisco, TX | Traveled to Mexico
Erika has been working with our company for 6 years, not only booking and managing all travel for our employees (up to 50 at one time) but also planning and executing company incentive trips to Mexico and staff off-site meetings around the US and Canada. Her attention to detail and patience with the multiple changes that come with corporate travel is second to none. Because of her work ethic and relationships that have been forged, other employees have trusted her to book their personal trips. I highly recommend Erika for both leisure and corporate travel needs.

30th Birthday Extravaganza!
Reviewed By Adrienne - Dallas, TX | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Erika is so helpful, she takes all of your cares and worries away when she books a vacation for you. She was always available to answer any questions I had, and kept in constant contact with not only me but also my friends who were traveling with me. I have never felt more calm traveling out of the country. She truly makes sure you are taken care of from the time you book, til the time you get home. She also has lots of fun suggestions on how to make the most out of your trip.

My first trip with Erika, I was a bridesmaid in a friendswedding that Erika helped coordinate. My second trip with Erika was for my 30th birthday. She was so helpful in picking the resort for my birthday. She gave me tons of options with all of the pros and cons for each so we were really able to pick what was best for our group. We found the perfect place, and it was truly the best vacation. . She also gave suggestions for a remarkable birthday dinner that we will never forget! She knows it all!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.
