Certified Travel Specialist /Destination Wedding
I have been in the travel industry for more than 15 years and have extensive knowledge in planning dream vacations, Destination Weddings, Honeymoons and family vacations. I enjoy spending time and traveling with my family (especially my grandchildren) to new destinations. I have personally traveled to Disney World, Disneyland and Universal Studios, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Cozumel, Cancun, Belize, Honduras, Hawaii and Antiqua, and of course, Las Vegas.
Continuing education in the travel industry is one of the keys to look for when selecting a professional travel agent. I am a Royal Caribbean Cruise Line WOW expert and A Princess Commodore. Recently I also became a Certified Sandals Agent as well as a Club Med Specialist. These are certifications issued to a travel agent once the agent has completed their in-depth training programs. I specialize in Honeymoons and Destination Weddings in the United States, Caribbean, and Mexico.
As part of my travel education, when I travel with my family to new destinations I make a point of studying the destination and what it has to offer so I can share my experience with my customers and give them recommendations of what to do and what not to do. Because of my experiences I am able to recommend family affordable vacations all over the Caribbean and Mexico. I am familiar with a variety of All-Inclusive resorts to meet my customer’s budget and preferences. I love people and sharing their life’s story. My ideal customers are first time travelers, young couples just starting out and looking for a Destination Wedding, families and retired couples. I love helping them find their dream vacation. So, whether it be for a short weekend trip or the family adventure of a life time give me a call.

My Recent Trip Reviews and Recommendations
Sandals Royal Caribbean (courtesy of sandals.com)
Recently I visited the AM Resorts in Montego Bay Jamaica. What a beautiful place! The Secrets Wild Orchid/St. James resorts are by far some of the best I have been to. Beauty abounded inside and out. The food was fabulous and the staff...well let me just say I had 'No Problem Mon'.
On one of my recent trips to Cancun, I had the pleasure of staying at the Now Jade Riviera. I highly recommend this beautiful property with a great staff.
Also, now that the Hurricanes have passed, it's time to start going back to the Caribbean. Punta Cana in Dominican Republic is up and running with some fabulous resorts. Give me a call and I will be happy to get you booked at one of the Secrets, Dreams or Sun Scape resorts. I look forward to hearing from you.
