Western Europe, New Zealand, River Cruises .
Time is a valuable asset, and one of my greatest loves is helping clients travel to their dream destinations, create family memories, and enrich their lives.
Traveling has been part of my life; the family vacations in the station wagon from my hometown of South Bend, Indiana were followed by studying for a year in Belgium and another year in France. After a career with the U.S. House of Representatives, I enrolled at the International Institute of Travel in Washington, DC. For the past 32 years, I live in the rich international community of the DC metro area, while sharing my passion for travel.
As a Certified Travel Consultant (CTC) and Master Cruise Counselor (MCC), I specialize in
- luxury travel
- river cruises
- multi-generational trips
- group tours.
I have planned many milestone celebrations, educational family adventures, and group tours for clubs and churches throughout my career. I am particularly proud of a recent New Zealand vacation I organized for a family of five who flew on three different dates, visited all the natural wonders possible and vacationed from 14 days to 40 days.
Additionally, my familiarity with all-inclusive river cruise experience allows me to help clients maximize their vacation time by planning the best tours and dining.
I’ve visited Europe and the Mediterranean many times; favorite spots include Spain, Italy and the Greek Islands.Istanbul, Turkey has a cherished place my heart. Its history, architecture, sights, sounds, cuisine and friendly people made me break my rule of not visiting the same place twice
I enjoy getting to know my clients. I listen closely, ask questions, present appealing options and handle each and every detail promptly and efficiently. I look forward to helping you plan your own vacation of a lifetime.
