An independent agent with Magical Moments Vacations in Findlay, OH, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Disney Destinations Travel Agent

It is my desire to be the one place that business and leisure travelers will go with confidence to find a personalized travel planning experience based on their dreams, comfort, and price preferences. I provide consistent, professional, and friendly service by consulting, researching, booking, and planning WITH the client to save them time and stress, usually at no additional cost.

I am a travel agent affiliated with Magical Moments Vacations, an Earmarked Authorized Disney Vacation Planner agency. For the last 2 years, I have been the #7 sales agent out of 230 in my agency.  My agency a Platinum level Earmarked agency, meaning one of the very best in Disney's eyes!

There are so many Disney Travel Planners out there. What sets me apart from the others? I treat every client with the respect and service that they deserve. I don't charge any fees to plan trips, except in the instance that air-only is required. I provide personalized itineraries for Disney vacations. I handle your deadlines, your reservations, and am available for advice and questions morning, noon, and night. 

How It All Began...

I have always been a planner for as long as I can remember. It's sort of an obsession for me. I also love traveling. I can vividly remember the first time I went beyond the normal 20 minute drive to visit my grandparents. It was with my church youth group as we traveled 3 hours south of my hometown to St. Louis, MO, for a day at Six Flags. I was overcome with emotion when she saw that "Welcome to Missouri" sign. I didn't care if those around me saw me crying. I had just accomplished a huge milestone in my life. At the time, though, I didn't know that it would later be a huge part of my calling.

Over the next 10 years, I would travel with my church youth groups and music groups often for conferences, outings, and concerts. I couldn't get enough!!! I sailed through high school, college, and started work in the career world. I had dabbled with the idea of being a travel agent, but never once pursued it. I seemed to find contentment in the jobs that I had in the corporate world and as a Realtor.

When I became engaged to my high school sweetheart in 2000, my fiance', Shane, asked me if a trip to Disney World sounded like a good honeymoon. Thus began my third obsession....Disney. It was shortly after I returned from their 6th Disney World trip in May 2013 that I was surfing the Internet one evening and dreaming about our next trip when I noticed a friend of hers had posted about her awesome Disney Travel Planner. A light bulb went off in my head. A Disney Travel Planner? What?! Is there really such a thing? I spent the evening researching and then applying to two companies. By the time I woke up the next morning, I had been hired on by Magical Moments Vacations as an independent travel agent.

My intentions were to do this as a fun "hobby," or side job. However, over the next 6 months, I had so many people asking for quotes and booking vacations with me that I realized that it was destined to be much more than a hobby. Today, this is my full-time career, and I love every minute of it!
