Cruises, All-Inclusives, Europe, Hawaii

I have been in the travel industry since 1978 and have thoroughly enjoyed helping clients book their DREAM vacation or just a quick getaway to visit family or get much needed rest and relaxation.

My favorite vacation basically is every trip I've taken as each new destination holds unique and interesting experiences.  I particularly enjoy cruising, mostly because you visit several destinations in one trip without complication or frustration.  I  have been to Ireland, England, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Columbia, various Caribbean Islands and the Panama Canal.  My most memorable trip was my first trip as a travel agent.  I cruised from New York to The Bahamas and when we cruised past the Statue of Liberty she was so beautiful!

After extensive study I have earned The Travel Institute certification of Certified Travel Counselor and the designation of Caribbean Destination Specialist.  I'm currently studying for the Hawaii Destination Specialist designation.

I love the continuous ongoing learning process this business demands of me along with all the awesome, wonderful people I meet, both my clients and people I meet through work and travel.

I'm not a "spring chicken" but will probably be involved with travel until my mind fails me or I'm unable to walk or get around without assistance.  Being a travel agent has provided me with a life I could never have dreamed of otherwise.  

Dedicated to your needs

I would LOVE to help you book that special cruise!

I take special interest in every trip I book for my clients as though it is my own trip.  I am diligent in checking every detail from the trip beginning to end.
