"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


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.


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.

Deanna was very helpful and knowledgable about our destination, a place we had never been before. She gave us many very good options to chose from. 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. I would call on her again for her help in the future!

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.

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!
