About me
I_`ve traveled extensively and always looking to explore new areas. I specialize in high-end luxury cruises, tours and experiential travel. My favorite trips have been to Patagonia, the Amazon, Australia/New Zealand, The Polar Bears in the Arctic, Vietnam and Africa! My bucket list consists of the Northern Lights, India, China, a Gorilla trek and the Galapagos.
In 2014, i was honored to be in the Top 25 All Stars for Travel Agent Magazine and in 2016 I was awarded one of the Top 10 Luxury Travel Advisor Trendsetters. I also am certified with Tourism Cares as a Global Travel Advisor- making a difference in the world and supporting clients through good giving and volunteering.
Why I love my job
I've had a passion for travel since I was a child because my parents always tried to take us on a trip each year. I love creating an experience that exceeds expectations and leaves my clients coming back for more. It's a crazy business we're in, but one that is exciting and fulfilling. Designing a bucket list trip for someone, a honeymoon, multi gen adventure or a weekend getaway is what I embrace. There's no other business I'd rather be in!
Favorite Destinations
IT's hard to pick just one! My all time favorite destination is Africa. It's life changing. I've been to East and South Africa and Botswana. The sunsets are like no other, the people are the most loving in the world.
In Africa, you marvel at the animals. The giraffes elegantly walking along beside you, the iridescent colors in the birds. The lions lounging around or searching for prey. And the majestic elephants-I could watch them all day! It's hard to describe the magic of Africa until you go. You can't return from the Serengeti unchanged! One of my favorite sayings was from Will Smith who said "It feels like God visits everyplace else, but lives in Africa.
It should be on everyone's bucket list!
About my most memorable vacation
My most recent vacation was to New Zealand. The beauty of this country is astounding. Yachting in the Bay of Islands is amazing! Cruising the Marlborough sounds and eating fresh clams and mussels cooked right on the boat, wine tasting at some of the best wineries and then cruising on the Abel Tasman watching schools of dolphins chase us. The lodges of New Zealand are incredible. The Matakauri Lodge in Queenstown is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed in. Service, food and the accommodations are 5 star all the way. Sitting outside having lunch and viewing the Remarkables Range in the background is breathtaking. The Kauri Cliffs Lodge up in the Bay of Islands is a golfers dream with views that go on forever. The activities are endless. One of my favorite things to do is jet boating in Queenstown! And I'd go back again and again to the Marlborough region and sounds. The Kiwi people love Americans and are so kind and helpful! With more sheep than people, you never have crowds!
