Invaluable experience. It's what I bring to my customers. I have been working in various sectors of the travel industry for the past 40 years. I began this great adventure I call my career at the age of 17 as a tour guide for Globus/Cosmos. With this company, I traveled to Spain, France and Greece, learning the languages and gaining deep insight into each country. I then went on to work for:

  • Iberia Airlines, where I learned how to plan travel by air to Europe, Africa and elsewhere in the world.
  • One of the first legal tour operators to Cuba, where I also learned how to arrange group travel to Nicaragua and El Salvador.
  • A multi-national European common market receptive tour operator, where I arranged incentive group travel, bus tours and individual tour programs to Florida for companies based in Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary and Switzerland.

I currently live in Florida, so I also have a rich knowledge of all that this major tourist destination has to offer. And I also have an intimate knowledge of New York City as I grew up in that amazing city. Plus, I studied abroad in England and obtained my masters of tourism in Spain.

In addition to my personal experiences, I have taken classes and courses to earn many certificates, including but definitely not limited to:

  • Aruba
  • Israel
  • Philippines
  • Spain
  • Thailand

I have also earned many product specialist certificates, including but, again, not limited to:

  • Avalon River Cruises
  • Beaches
  • Celebrity Cruises
  • Globus and Cosmos Tours
  • Marriott Hotels
  • Norwegian Cruise Lines

While I have experience booking all types of vacation, I do feel my specialties are arranging multi-generational vacations and the romance trips, including honeymoons and destination weddings.

I also proudly specialize in planning and booking fundraising vacations and believe in traveling for a cause as well as giving back to my community. In fact, my favorite quote is "You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

So if you're looking for an agent who will work hard to meet your travel needs, please contact me. I care about all of my clients like they are my family, and I will strive to ensure that you have a truly superb experience while on your vacation.
