It has been said that travel in my DNA and I guess it really is. Since birth, I watched my Mother travel on glamorous fashion buying trips worldwide. At age 13, my cousin smuggled me along on an 8-week High School study tour of Europe and I was hooked.
My career path took me into mortgage banking and I worked for 25 years to build my own successful company through dedication, relationships and a high attention to customer care. It afforded me a lifestyle that included as much travel as I could possibly fit in! In 2007 the real estate crash abruptly took that career away, and I stood there with my strong work ethic and a passion for people in one hand and my passion for travel in the other. I jumped into a career as a Travel Advisor with both feet and never looked back.
A perpetual learner, I consistently study the business aspect to go along with my being a citizen of the world. I hold many certifications: most notably both an Elite Cruise Counselor and Luxury Cruise Specialist, two of the highest certifications from CLIA (the esteemed Cruise Line Industry Association) as well as many luxury hotel and resort specialties as well. I attend some of the top Industry Conferences so I can develop lasting relationships with the best minds in the travel industry worldwide and I continue to travel as extensively as possible (by land, sea and river) so I stay best equipped to guide my valued clients in doing the same.
A serious foodie and wine lover with a thirst for discovery and local culture and over 60 countries under my belt all add up to my having “insider knowledge” and connections at my fingertips so I can curate personalized travel experiences for my clients. I live for custom crafting travel experiences for busy professionals or retirees who "have earned it" - and I am rarely happier than when coordinating a special celebration trip or a multigenerational family escape. Please consider me your personal travel planner and destination specialist and allow me to custom design an escape just for you!
