I am a certified travel agent based in New York City, and every day I look for new ways of creating the best trips for my clients! I have always loved traveling and adventure, and I knew that I wanted to share the magic of vacations with everyone I met.

Before becoming an agent, I worked for the New York magazine Black Diaspora. It featured Caribbean celebrities, politicians, plus news and articles about daily Caribbean and international life. For seven years I served as the managing editor and lead contributing travel writer.

My articles centered around the best worldwide destinations including the US, Caribbean, Africa, South America, and more! During this time, I made contacts with some of the world’s leading travel brands and associations, and I continue to use these contacts today to get the best insider benefits for my clients.

I eventually decided that instead of writing to others about the beauty of traveling, I would serve people directly by booking and assisting their next vacation. I became certified as a Travel Specialist from NYC & Co and joined the Caribbean Tourism Organization. Soon after, I opened my own agency called Island Eventures which promotes Caribbean events and adventures.

Today, I specialize in destination weddings, group and family tours, and custom vacations of all types to numerous worldwide destinations! I love creating eco-friendly tours to the Caribbean and beyond, and my main goal is that everyone returns from their trip smiling and ready for more!

With years of experience, I am able to make the booking process simple and enjoyable. I find that when people book on their own it often leads to stress plus a lot of wasted time. With my help, you will:

  • Have an itinerary that allows you to maximize your time
  • Get the ideal room and travel routes
  • Have personalized assistance before and during your trip
  • Support for any itinerary changes or questions while abroad
  • Plus much more!

I want everyone to experience the pleasures of traveling, and I love helping people craft their dream vacations. I have booked luxury cruises in Europe, safaris in Africa, plus romantic getaways and honeymoons in the Caribbean. Every destination has its own special beauty, and I will work with you to ensure that you experience the best of it!
