Disney Destinations Specialist

Walt Disney once said, “We work hard to do the best job possible.” Working hard comes easy when you’re doing something you love, and I LOVE the process and excitement of planning any Disney trip! I have been to Walt Disney World more times than I can count and have successfully completed Disney's College of Knowledge and the Disney Institute: Disney's Approach to Quality Service to make sure I know all things Disney! Let me share my love of Disney with you by helping you plan your next dream vacation! My services are 100% FREE and include Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Lines, Adventures by Disney, and Aulani.

Not only will I take the time to get to know you and your family to select the best vacation options, but I will also monitor your reservations to make sure you are getting the best price possible. If a discount becomes available after you book, I will automatically apply the savings for you!  

While Disney is the D in my DNA, I can also provide my clients with endless travel possibilities.   My 100% FREE services also include Universal, Sandals and Beaches Resorts, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Carnival Cruise Lines, Apple Vacations, Funjet Vacations, Southwest Vacations, and so much more!  If your wanderlust has given you an itch to travel, I am here to be your partner in planning!
