Luxury Travel Advisor
My experience in the travel industry spans more than twenty years. Over the course of this time, I had the opportunity to serve in different positions in the industry, including corporate travel, leisure travel and briefly worked as a hotel sales manager. My broad range of positions over the course of my career has helped shape my business as it is today.
I arrange groups large and small for families and friends traveling together on vacation, as well as corporate incentive groups. After taking a short break from leisure travel and arranging corporate travel in the late 1990s, I returned to leisure travel in 2002 and many of my loyal clients have trusted me with their family vacations for over 15 years.
I am a Charter Member of Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialist Association, a Certified Sandals Specialist, Jamaica Travel Specialist and many other resort and cruise certifications. I earned my certification as a Hawaii Destination Specialist through the Hawaii Convention & Visitors Bureau and love to plan detailed multi-island itineraries. I continuously attend webinars and training courses to stay educated in the industry. Most recently I attended GTM West (Global Travel Marketplace) in Nevada, connecting with the best cruise lines, hotels and tour operators worldwide.
I also enjoy creating multi-country trips throughout Europe, with customized itineraries featuring fascinating cites such as Rome, Florence, Venice, Amalfi Coast, Santorini, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Munich, Prague and Budapest.
One of my great passions is working with engaged couples to plan their once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon vacation. I am honored to be a part of my clients' special trip and I enjoy spending time working with each couple to recommend the right resort or destination for their dream honeymoon.
I can't wait to help you plan your next dream vacation!
From a business perspective regarding the services you provided and facilitated, you executed perfectly. I will, and have already referred many people to you, and will continue to do so.

No Secrets to a Poor Resort and Avg Service
It is unfortunate that you were not satisfied with the service at Secrets Maroma Beach. As for my service, I worked closely with your group leader and the hotel, arranging a nice discount for the entire group instead of a room upgrade, which was in the group contract. With group travel, travelers are required to book at the same time. This is the only way the hotel knows you are part of a group.
