Family Vacations & Honeymoon Travel

10 years ago I would often say that I didn't understand people's interest in travel.  I had no desire to go anywhere.  Until I did!  So I became a travel agent in 2013. Now I believe there is not enough vacation time to see all of the world out there to see.  I have a bucket list a mile long!

I am always working to increase my knowledge of this business.  I am a Certified Travel Agent, United States Tour Operators Association certified, a Disney Travel specialist & certified by the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Association just to name a few.  Honeymoons are an important part of my business.  They are special to me since the day my first bride & groom returned from their honeymoon & sent me a thank you for helping her have the honeymoon of her dreams.  I attend bridal & wedding events often and it is one of my favorite things to do.  

Since 2015 I started doing groups and that is now a large part of my business also.  I have planned group trips for high schools for their seniors and girl's trips to Chicago, New York City and in 2020 I have a group heading to Paris.  I love this part of my business. 

I also enjoy helping families arrange an affordable vacation.  From Disney World, Florida, Myrtle Beach & California to Cancun, Los Cabos & Punta Cana.  Every trip is special to those families and to me.  Making memories as a family is so important.

My favorite place to travel to?  I would have to say Alaska! But, I am also hooked on California.  I have visited San Francisco, LA, San Diego, Napa Valley and loved them all!  That is just in the United States.  

Travel is my passion.  I can't wait to bring you along for the amazing journey!

Cannot believe her attention to detail!

Reviewed By Chris - Allendale, MI | Traveled to
Joy helped me plan a trip to Cancun and I had to take the train to Chicago to fly out of Midway, stay in a hotel the night before and the night I returned from my trip. She was amazing with her attention to detail. She planned every step of the vacation, even down to printing the directions on the walk from Union Station to get on the L in Chicago to get to my hotel! I'm old school, so she printed every thing I needed, put it in a folder in the order I would need it & I was set! I have never received such service!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
