European and Cruise Travel Specialist
I believe that top-notch service is just as important as getting to the destination. Planning a vacation can be time consuming and confusing. Striving for for a pleasant and trouble-free planning process, I will provide you with a quality experience. I have access to an abundance of suppliers that offer a wealth of amenities and booking incentives, and I will work to tailor your vacation to the way you enjoy traveling.
I am passionate about travel. I love to travel and I love planning your travel. Over the years, even when I wasn't in the travel industry, I was relied upon to help others plan their vacations and always offered tips and advice. I was told many times that I should become a travel agent, so when the opportunity presented itself, that is exactly what I did.
I can assist you with planning cruises and Disney vacations. I have been cruising since 1991 and have departed from both American and European ports. I love Disney because of their impeccable service and standards and have been visiting the parks since 1995. Because Disney is always striving for the best experience, it is a priority to remain abreast of their technology and the way they use it to enhance your vacation experience. I'm here to help make your Disney vacation a seamless and enjoyable experience.
Are you one of the millions of Americans descended from Italian immigrants? My passion for traveling to Italy began when I planned a family trip to visit our relatives still living in Sicily. With only stories to start with, the Internet helped me locate our relatives living near Palermo. With the help of a translator, we were able to contact them and, ultimately, spent an entire day together learning about and visiting where our family had come from in Isnello, Sicily. We also gathered several generations of family ancestry from the local government office. We came home with our hearts bursting and so many stories to tell. Now, as a travel agent, I help others connect with their families or ancestral cities in Italy. This is probably the most rewarding part of my work. If you have a passion to visit Italy, I'm here to help you make that dream a reality.
When you work with me, you will find that I'm very personable and will provide you with excellent service. I plan your vacation like I plan my own. Before you leave, you will have everything you need to feel confident with your schedule throughout your vacation. And, during your travels, you are not alone. I will be here should you need anything while traveling. Hopefully, we'll develop a long-term relationship, as I have come to do with so many of my clients in the past, as both business partners and friends.
Where it all began...
With Our Italian Family in Isnello, Sicily
One day, I knew I would return to visit my family in Sicily. So I threw myself into learning the Italian language. I became involved in our local Italian language Meetup and have been taking weekly lessons with a local group, Italia in Ohio, since 2011. In 2013 Italia in Ohio asked me to start planning their study abroad language learning group trips. I have accompanied and lead the group to Rome and Salerno, on the Amalfi Coast, to study at the Accademia Italiana Salerno.
