Leisure and River Cruise Travel Specialist
I have been a travel consultant for 23 years and I have experienced many aspects of the travel industry: traveling to many unique areas of the world, teaching Travel and Tourism at Reading Area Community College, achieving my ACC and CTC (Accredited Cruise Counselor, Certified Travel Counselor), and becoming the manager of Berkleigh Travel, a full service travel agency located in Kutztown, PA.
My passion was discovered through my experiences in Europe and in Mexico. For me, travel is about the people and their cultures .... the smells, the colors, the music and the tastes of the local cuisine. I am most happy when I am experiencing small children playing in a town square in Oaxaca or listening to mariachi music in Guanajuto, Mexico. Eating pici pasta in Lucca or sipping a glass of wine while relaxing in the main square of San Gimignano is an experience worth repeating over and over again.
Six years ago I discovered my love for river cruising. Chugging along the river on a European Cruise is just the right pace to enjoy the landscape dotted with castles, vineyards and small villages. I have been on five European river cruises and hands down it is the best way to see interior Europe.
Twenty two years ago I combined my passion with my profession. Planning travel and experiencing travel is what I do and what I love. Life is short and the experiences are many. Let me help you plan your travel passion.
