Vacation Specialist

What is your travel background?
I got into the business back in 2007. I had been a cruiser for about a decade at that time and I decided that I wanted to book travel, especially cruises, for a living since I was referring so many friends and family to cruises. And that is how it all began!

What is your BEST advice for travelers?
Price and Value are two completely different things! That saying, "you get what you pay for" can be so very true. I prefer to help my clients get the "best bang for your buck" when it comes to vacation planning. We all work very hard so we should be able to vacation for a reasonable cost and have a great time.

What is your favorite trip that you have taken? AND where are you planning to go next?
To date, my favorite trip was a Western Med Cruise in June of 2012. We stopped in Naples, Italy and took an excursion to a bucket list place, Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. I huffed and puffed climbing up that volcano. I didn't realize I was that out of shape! Making it to the top and seeing that view made it all worth it! Having experiences like those on each trip is why I love travel so much. The next trip, well the next big one anyway, is to go to The Philippines (so I can show my family where my mother grew up) and then a stop in Tokyo, since my kids really want to go there.

What is your best travel memory?
Coming around the corner in Paris and seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time. Amazing!

How many countries have you been to?
24 countries, including many of the Caribbean nations.
