Travel today is more complicated than ever. Between entry protocols, testing and quarantine requirements, last-minute schedule changes, extreme weather events, and geopolitical tensions, it is my job to stay on top of everything so that my clients are able to travel safely and with minimal hassles.

I attend to my clients before, during, and after each trip, all the while delivering authentic, destination-immersive travel experiences. From weekend getaways to world tours and bucket list adventures, I can add tremendous value to your travel plans.

I use my skills as a former librarian and technical writer to ask the right questions in order to do the right research so that I can recommend the right vacation experiences for my clients. I hold certifications as a CTA (Certified Travel Advisor), VTA (Verified Travel Advisor), and ACC (Accredited Cruise Counselor).

Before recommending my clients to any destination, I make it a point to thoroughly research the destination and find the best vendors. As a result, I have completed certifications with many suppliers and destinations, including, AMA Waterways, Aruba Certified Expert, Rivera River Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Globus, Cosmos, AMTRAK Vacations, Rocky Mountaineer, Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and counting…

Recent world events have really demonstrated the value of having a competent travel advisor in your corner. When you dial my number, you will speak to a real person. When you email me, you don’t get a computer-generated response. You get a personalized response. I’m always available to my clients. My only goal is to design the best vacation for you.

I have transformed my passion into a fulfilling career as a travel advisor. Let me help you transform your dream vacation into reality

I’ve always loved the thrill of arriving at a new port and discovering all of the nearby histories. Cruising is my favorite way to travel, and I’m passionate about seeing new sights and exploring new cultures. Cruises allow you to experience so much while only unpacking once.

I have a lifelong love for cruising and want to help everyone enjoy their dream vacation with ease.

I’m certified with multiple cruise lines and have experience booking countless routes around the world. Whether you want a scenic Caribbean cruise or a small river cruise through exciting destinations, I’ll book everything to your exact specifications.

I’ll work with you to customize your trip so you can have the time of your life anywhere in the world. I work with families, couples, solo travelers, millennials, and groups of all sizes in countless destinations.

From the Caribbean islands to Europe and beyond, I’m ready to help you set sail today!
