Disney, Family and European Travel Specialist
Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
My favorite memories are traveling with family, a legacy I have striven to pass on to my sons and students, helping them learn about the world by exploring it. One of my greatest joys is helping families craft vacations that leave a lasting impression for generations to come.
What sets me apart is my genuine love for families and the memories that they are making. As a teacher, I inherently invest into the lives of the students with whom I am privileged to share my classroom. As a travel agent, the experiences of my travelers are of paramount importance. I live vicariously through your travel, and I want it to be the most memorable time of your life.
I pride myself on keeping up-to-date with the most current trainings possible for my suppliers. I am a College of Disney Knowledge graduate, a Travel Specialist with Universal, and I hold a Shamrock Certification from CIE tours. I am currently working on training for Italy, the Mediterranean, and Europe.
As I have grown older, I have increasingly embraced the ideals of the Transcendentalists: men and women who believed in living life to the fullest. As a teacher and someone intensely invested in family, helping others to plan their adventures and helping them to live their lives to the fullest fills my heart.Next Adventure Vacations was born out of my love for travel, family, and making memories.
I believe that time invested in a well-designed vacation – whether couples, groups, family, or solo – is an investment in your relationships, your legacy, and your quality of life
My Clients are my Priority!
When I work with clients to design travel experiences, the people who are traveling are my inspiration. I craft family vacations that children will remember for the rest of their lives, tropical getaways for couples that bring them closer, and trips for friends that create bonds for a lifetime.
I am here for you before, during and after your travel to ensure quality value, experience and protection in your vacation.
