I am a travel expert and have spent over 20 years in the industry. I grew up in the travel industry and have developed a passion for travel and seeing the world. I was fortunate enough to grow up traveling and seeing many types or resorts, cruise ships, and destinations from a young age.
My passion for travel led me to focus my education in the industry. I have a degree in Hospitality Management from San Jose State University with an emphasis in Travel & Tourism. During my early hospitality career I spent 8 years in theme park management, 2 years in hotel operations, as well as internships with the Walt Disney company, Paramount Pictures and a tour operator customizing in high end vacations.
With my return to the industry as a travel consultant I have been focusing my career on cruising, family vacations and incentive groups. I have been able to get a lot of first hand knowledge of traveling with children from cruises to theme parks to island destinations. I have experienced many different cruise lines and resorts with my family and have seen what works and does not work well with children.
I have continued my professional education with becoming a Signature Travel Expert, Kauai Master Specialist, Authorized Disney Vacation Expert, and have an Accredited Cruise Counselor certification with the Cruise Lines International Association. I have also obtained the highest level of certifications from individual cruise lines including: Princess, Cunard, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Carnival, Viking, and Uniworld. I have become a Destinations Specialist in Hawaii, Vancouver, Switzerland, Alaska, and Canada.
