Leisure Travel & Disney Specialist

"The profession for the passion..."


I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to choose a profession for the passion. Traveling has always been a hobby and a great interest of mine. My husband is an avid and competitive sailor. Together we have traveled to many tropical destinations touring the high seas on a catamaran. I love being his first mate! It is very gratifying to find my clients the perfect dream vacation. 

My specialties are planning all-inclusive vacations in the Caribbean and also organizing family trips at a Disney park or cruise. I really enjoy planning honeymoon’s for the newly wedded couple’s. I love that this is the beginning of “our” relationship to planning vacations for anniversaries and possible family vacations.

When it comes to Disney World or Land, I leave no stone unturned when booking your Disney theme park vacation for your family. I have had intensive training of the Disney products, and been certified as a Disney Destination Genius from Disney. I take all that I have learned from my trainings and the experiences with my own family enjoying Disney World and cruising with the Disney Cruise Lines to customize my clients perfect Disney Vacation.

When I travel, I engage myself in every aspect of the trip to learn the destination to pass onto the client. As I most recently spent a week on the Hawaiian island of O’ahu and been certified as an O’ahu Master Specialist.  I spent the week on the island traveling to different resort properties, restaurants that the locals would go to, and exciting ways to explore the island.  I look forward to pass on all that I learned of the island to the clients I work with. 

As well as the knowledge I gain from my travels, I am also keeping up to date with the latest travel industry products by attending travel conferences and trainings. I have completed many online trainings for products such as: Palace Resorts, RIU, Disney, AM Resorts, Karisma, and Couples, to name a few.

Top 3 Travel Experiences

Jamaica

One of my most favorite trips was my honeymoon in Negril, Jamaica. Staying at Couple’s Negril. It was also my first All-Inclusive experience. It was truly a relaxing, romantic, pampering, refreshing experience. It set the tone for my love of the all-inclusive resort. 

St. John Virgin Islands

I have been to St. John twice and it's better every time. The people are amazing, and the views are spectacular. Taking a catamaran to the Soggy Dollar is so carefree. And you can't go wrong with a Pain Killer made by the bartender Mic.

Oahu

The island of Oahu has so much history, beauty, culture, and activities you could ever want. My favorite part of the island is the north shore. It is so quaint and beautiful. It truly was awe-inspiring vacation.

Prettiest resort and so relaxing!

Reviewed By JaD - Tulsa, OK | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Deanna was great to work with. Told her what we wanted and somewhere on a beach and price range. She sent back an email with about 3 suggestions and we checked them out online and picked Cancun. Live Aqua was the best all inclusive. Beautiful very nice and beach and ocean were a gorgeous teal. Will definitely return.

Great Travel Agent

Reviewed By Leslie - Racine, WI | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
She was extremely efficient and responsive when booking our vacation. Ensured that the two couples that were traveling together received rooms together on the resort and similar flights since we were coming from different locations. Would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again on our next vacation.

Best Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Beth - Greencastle, IN | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
I cannot say enough great things about working with Deanna. She was so helpful with everything, especially with us living out of state. She took the time to answer any and all questions that I had (and there were a lot!). She also took the time to meet with my mom and I to discuss possible locations for my honeymoon (my fiancé was working and couldn't make the meeting). She made sure to follow up multiple times and assist in any way possible. I cannot recommend Deanna enough! Working with her and the entire staff at LaMacchia was amazing!

Another "Bucket List' location achieved. Machu Pi

Reviewed By Deb - Racine, WI | Traveled to Machu Picchu ~ Peru ~ South America
She was very pleasant to work with. She was not familiar with the locations I wanted to go to, but she did not let that deter her from providing help and getting answers to questions. Globus was a great company to travel with.

We survived the family vacation!

Reviewed By Kim - Kenosha, WI | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Deanna is fantastic. Always available and replies quickly to any questions or inquiries. Takes cares of problems immediately. We had an ever changing flight with United and each time there was a problem, no fault of Deanna, but she resolved it quickly. She's friendly, upbeat, and very knowledge with Disney. She listens to our needs and gets us exactly what we are looking for. I would definitely recommend Deanna!

Great Agent; Medicore Resort

Reviewed By LThomas - Kenosha, WI | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
This is not the first time we have worked with Deanna, nor will it be the last, in planning our vacations.

One thing we commented on while at the resort was the value that Deanna was able to provide us in helping us secure a resort based on what we wanted to accomplish during our trip. It was obvious that that was not the case for a few others at the resort. Our goal was to do nothing while on this vacation... it was meant to be a quiet, restful trip of nothingness - The Excellence is a great resort for that. Unfortunately, not everyone got that same message.

Although the staff at The Excellence was nothing short of fantastic, the food was decent (not spectacular), the grounds were well maintained, etc. I would not return to this resort. The floor above us sounded like they were having an all-night party with Irish Dancers with the amount of hammering that took place to the wee-hours of the morning. The WiFi was awful which was EXTREMELY frustrating.

Amazing Trip!

Reviewed By Woody - Oconomowoc, WI | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Deanna was a pleasure to work with as she was attentive to our needs and responsive to our many questions. With this being a very important and meaningful vacation (our honeymoon), we had a tough time making a decision as to where to go, as everywhere seemed to be 5 star! . Deanna was extremely knowledgeable about the resorts and locations, which made our decision to choose the Hard Rock in Riviera Maya easy. I'm sure I was a more difficult customer seeing as I had many questions, but Deanna never showed any frustration and was always eager to help. If you're looking for insight and pro-activeness regarding travel, do not hesitate to reach Deanna!

She listened to what we were looking for and was "spot-on" with her recommendations. The only vacation I ever had that everything went incredibly smooth.

Best Disney Trip EVER!!!!

Reviewed By Brittaney ?? - Park City, IL | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Deanna helped my family, and I plan our trip to Disney World. She got us the best deals! We stayed at the All-Star Music Resort on Disney grounds, and the rooms were clean! We were treated like stars, and love every minute of it. We had free transportation to all of the parks. We were advised to buy the meal plan for each person in our party, and that was the best thing we could have done. We ended up with so much food and snacks! With the meal plan, we were able to have themed meals. The Ohana luau was fantastic, make sure you go hungry! The resort was amazing and huge, both pools are accessible, and the lifeguards were so family friendly! One perk of staying at the resorts is that you don't have to hall all of your new treasures around with you. We were able to buy things and have them shipped to our room for free. That was a big help. If you're going to Disney, Deanna is the person to go to :) It was seriously y a trip to remember. -Brittaney ??
