Vacation Specialist, Manager

What is your travel background?
I have been in the travel industry since 2005 and truly fell in love with it. I love making people's dreams come true and knocking those items off the bucket list. The travel industry is ever changing and ever growing, making it a unique challenge on a daily basis - no two trips are ever the same.

What is your BEST advice for travelers?
Let things happen. Sometimes it's those moments that we happen to have - instead of the ones we plan to have - that make the best memories and experiences. Just because something did not go right definitely does not mean it went wrong.

What is your favorite trip that you have taken? AND where are you planning to go next?
My favorite trip was to France - getting to see Normandy was a feeling I can never forget. I spent 10 days in country with my grandmother and the time with her was more valuable than anything I've experienced. I'm not sure what adventure I'll have next, but I'm ready for wherever it may take me.

What is your best travel memory?
My best travel memory would probably be swimming with sharks in the wild in Mexico. It was amazing and not the least terrifying as most people think. I took a boat for off-shore snorkeling along the Mesoamericana reef from Cozumel and, while snorkeling along one of the reefs, there was a nerf shark just hanging out! The shark didn't pay us any attention and I was able to swim and monitor the shark in the wild for a good amount of time.

How many countries have you been to?
I have been to 9 countries so far and don't plan to stop any time soon!
