River and Ocean Cruise Expert
The goal to “make people’s dreams come true” is the reason I first entered the travel industry and this has never changed. In the past I have handled travel arrangements for all corners of the world, but am now specializing in cruise vacations, as well as vacations to Hawaii, Alaska, Australia/New Zealand and European tours.
Cruising has always been my first love and I was among one of the first travel agents in the Pacific Northwest to earn Elite Cruise Counselor Certification with CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association). In addition I have earned specialist certifications from many major cruise lines, most recently completing the Viking Cruises Specialist certification. I believe these is a cruise for everyone, and I strive to match the right client with the ship and the cruise experience that best suits their lifestyle, interests and budget.
My other areas of specialty are Hawaii, Alaska, European tours, and most recently Australia/New Zealand where I have earned Aussie Specialist Certification through the Australian Tourist Board.
My travels have taken me to many corners of the world and my personal cruise experience includes over 135 cruises ranging from river boats to mega cruise ships and most every type of vessel in between. I joined Julie’s Travel Desk in 2000 after managing an agency in downtown Portland for 18 years.
So whether you want to take a European River Cruise, find the perfect Alaska cruise/tour, visit the Australian outback or meet a Kiwi in New Zealand, please call or email me so I can help to make your perfect vacation dreams come true.
