Personalized Travel Designer & Advisor

I am a designer at heart. I love taking chaotic details and distilling them down to organized, beautiful, personal experiences for others. I edit and organize travel choices into trips that fit my clients and how they want to experience the world.  I combine that with expert advice that keeps unpleasant surprises and stress at bay.

I call this traveling smart. I save my clients time, hassle, money, and often from misleading resort pictures on the internet.

Having grown up globetrotting with a large (and slightly crazy but ever-so-loveable) extended family, I am particularly passionate about group and multi-generational travel.  I think the world is best savored when shared and remembered with others. Travel brings people together.

I have…
• Helped a group travel to Southwestern China and experience everything from authentic cuisine to riding a yak.
• Designed a personalized trip to the foot of the Ganges River all the way to shadow of the Taj Mahal.
• Walked many first-time Disney-goers through the planning process to make Disney easy and magical. (You didn’t know there was a planning process for Disney? We need to talk.)
• Found the perfect balance of exotic beach and once-in-a-lifetime adventures for anniversaries, milestones, and honeymooners.
• Personally traveled all over the US (including Alaska), the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, Peru, Chile, Australia, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Great Britain, South Korea, China, and a whole lot of Disney. I aim to grow the list. 

I look forward to helping you travel smart and travel well.

Helping Others Get Home

One of my favorite things about travel is its ability to give back. I believe that travel has enriched my life and I should return the favor. Part of the proceeds from my work goes toward refugee, orphan care and adoption worldwide. I believe in helping my clients get home to the places they love and using that to help others have forever homes.

Destination Wedding planning made easy!!

Reviewed By JJ - Orlando, Fl | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Working with Mandy made our destination wedding planning process so easy and stress free. She helped us make the key decisions on location, resort, excursions, transportation, etc. Mandy managed all the details for us and our 50 guests. That's no small feat, especially when dealing with international travel. Mandy was the point of contact for all of our guests and we (the couple getting married) didn't have to deal with any of the guests questions or travel details. Mandy is super responsive, helpful, and has great advice and insight. We will definitely be working with Mandy again!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Fabulous family trip

Reviewed By Kyle - Fishers | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
I have been our family's travel planner for many years and found it to take way too much of my time and be more stress than needed. A friend recommended Mandy and it was so wonderful! She asked me what our preferences were for travel, and was able to pick the ideal resort. Every detail was handled beautifully and all I had to do was set the alarm to make the flight. The rest of the vacation went off without a hitch. Even when I was worried about a possible weather delay, she was reassuring that even if that happened, it would all work out well - which it did! I will continue to use Mandy for our family's travel needs and sit back and relax. Thank you Mandy!

She made the vacation planning so easy!

Reviewed By Johnna - Indiana | Traveled to
We will never plan our own vacation again! Mandy took our preferences and ran with them---giving us options that met our criteria and our budget. She always updated us with the newest sales and promotions, and helped us to get the most for our money. We really appreciated the traveling advice she gave us, especially the tips for managing our way through the Cancun airport! I was so impressed with the amount of knowledge she had about the resorts, and she made it so easy--all we did was provide the money. We will definitely be using her for all our future trips!

Happy 15th Anniversary to us!

Reviewed By Nicki - Rocky Mount, Virginia | Traveled to
Mandy helped book a trip for my husband and me or our 15th wedding anniversary. She came up with some fabulous options and we chose the Dominican republic. The price was reasonable, the accommodations were awesome, and the weather was perfect. We were so thankful for Mandy's insight and knowledge since neither one of us had ever been to DR. This was also the first time we had purchased trip insurance and we are so thrilled that we did. Our flight from Charlotte got canceled and we ended up having to rent a car to drive back to Virginia. Mandy didn't miss a beat and had the paperwork rolling immediately. We ended up being reimbursed for the two flights and the rental car! So thankful for Mandy and her expertise!

Disney trip planning made easy!

Reviewed By Rachel - North Carolina | Traveled to
Mandy is the best! We were planning our first trip to Disney World and felt totally overwhelmed. Should we stay at a Disney Resort or off site? What days should we visit which park? Do we need a meal plan? What the heck is a MagicBand??? Mandy answered all of those questions and helped us plan a Disney vacation to remember! She shared several options within our budget and helped us understand how all of the 'extras' work...and there are A LOT at Disney World. She was quick to get back with us when we had questions, was thoughtful in her suggestions and highly knowledgable. We were able to plan a trip that felt tailored to our family. I would definitely use her again in booking any trip! Thanks Mandy!

Mandy takes the stress out of travel planning!

Reviewed By GapFam - Central Indiana | Traveled to
We have booked four vacations with Mandy and are so happy to have had her help. We have used her assistance for family travel and special occasion travel both in the United States and internationally. Mandy was knowledgable about our desired destinations and very quick to provide a range of options within our budget. We have not had any issues with any of our bookings, but I feel confident that if we did that Mandy would have helped immediately. We highly recommend Mandy's services. She makes travel planning something our family looks forward to!

I wouldn't book with anyone else!

Reviewed By Lauren H. - Noblesville, IN | Traveled to
Mandy booked a trip to Northern India for my husband and myself. I cannot say enough good things about our experience working with her. She covered all the bases and then some! From planning our flight times to have the least amount of jet lag to lining up a trip to ride elephants in Jaipur she thought of every detail. She was so prompt to get back with answers to all of our questions. A true joy to work with. I have and will continue to give her name out to all our friends looking for a great travel agent! We are planning another trip in the near future and we will be using Mandy again without a doubt!
