Family and Multigenerational Travel

I've been a professional travel adviser for over 6 years and I have had the good fortune to travel much of my life and I consider it an honor to share my extensive knowledge, experiences and love for travel with family, friends and clients.  My travels have taken me to much of the Caribbean, United Kingdom, Europe, Iceland, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and a good part of the Continental U.S.

Firsthand travel is vital, but I am also a big believer in education.  The travel industry is continually growing and evolving and it is crucial to stay current.  I am a certified specialist with: Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Universal Studios and Resorts, Atlantis Resort Ambassador, RIU Resort Properties, Disney Aulani Resort, Hawaii Destination Specialist, Collette Vacations Specialist, Hurtigurten Specialist, Aussie Specialist and Anchorage Wild Expert.  It is so important to keep up on the latest news, trends and create lasting relationships with vendors and destinations which enables me to offer my clients a much more personal and in depth travel experience. The Internet is an amazing tool which brings the world right to our finger tips, but it doesn't offer the personal insight and expertise that working with a travel adviser does. And it will most likely cause information overload. I pride myself on taking the time to listen to my clients needs and desires and create personalized itineraries to suit them.  I understand my client's time and resources are precious.  My goal and what I strive for is to make sure you get the most from your vacation: to get to truly enjoy a destination to its fullest and the time spent with loved ones. 

Having relationships and access to vendors and companies that won't be found from a Google search or on Expedia or Costco is what sets me apart.  I welcome the opportunity to offer my expertise, advice and services to you while planning your next trip.

My motto: Explore. Dream. Discover.

I invite you to:

Let me become a small part of the next destination you want to explore.

Let me learn about your dream vacation.

Find out what corner of the world you have yet to discover.

Hawaii Specialist

Ko Olina, Oahu
Ko Olina, Oahu

I am a certified Hawaii specialist. I have taken extensive courses on the Hawaiian Islands and have been to both Maui and Oahu (working on getting to the other islands soon).  Each island has it's own personality and beauty.  Let me help guide you to find the perfect fit for your vacation needs.  And if you must see all the islands at the same time I can advise you on the cruises available that make it possible.  Hawaii is a must see destination and the best part is no passport required!

Land and Sea Adventure in Alaska

I cannot even begin to put into words how majestic and awe inspiring Alaska is.

Our 10 adventure began in Fairbanks.  From there we rode the Alaskan Railway to Denali National Park. On the train we sat in the famed domed cars and were lucky enough to see the peak of Denali ... Read more from my Land and Sea Adventure in Alaska story.

Wonderful trip!

Reviewed By Beth F - Bristow, Va | Traveled to Cabo San Lucas ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
In the past, we’ve always planned our own travel. We decided to use a travel agent this year and Shannon was referred to us. She was amazing to work with and we couldn’t believe how easy she made it for us! We had a wonderful time on our trip and will definitely be calling Shannon to help with the next one!

Paradise in December

Reviewed By RSharpe - Bristow, VA | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
We have used Shannon to plan a number of our trips including a Panama Canal cruise for 2 and a family vacation in Hawaii for 7. In both cases, all of the arrangements, accommodations and travel plans came off without a hitch. She saw to every possible detail and made both vacations anxiety free. We would not hesitate to recommend her services. In fact, even now, she in in the process of planning an Alaskan cruise for our entire extended family.

GREAT TRAVEL AGENT

Reviewed By Kelly C. - Freedom, WI | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA
Shannon was exceptional to work with. She helped plan & organize our family trip to D.C. in May of 2018. She gave me many options of hotels to pick from, giving us the pro's and con's of some different locations, according to our plans during our stay. She gave us tips about getting around, helped explain the Metro system to us and even sent us admission cards for the Metro to get us started!! She was wonderful and SO helpful!! I would definitely contact her again in the future!! I would certainly give her name out to friends and family. Great job! Thank you!
