Disney Destination and Ireland Specialist

I have 30 years of experience planning travel for individuals, groups, meetings and incentives, leisure, destination weddings, bachelorette and bachelor vacations and much more!  There is so much that I love about the travel industry, but nothing is better than when my clients can take time from their busy lives and experience the many joys this world has to offer. I have traveled the world to gain more knowledge and experience to better serve my clients. So give me a call to start planning your next vacation!

My Travel Specialties

Disney Destination Specialist

As a Disney Destination Specialist, I can help guide you to an amazing Disney experience. Who wouldn’t want to get a chance to feel like a child again? This is why I love Disney vacations. It offers a chance for the whole family to be together and feel the magic that Disney World and Disneyland have to offer.

The memories, joy and wonderful moments that you share as a family or group will stay with you forever. Bachelorette parties, family reunions, or even dance competitions can seem overwhelming to coordinate and plan. But as a group travel specialist, I can make sure every detail of the trip runs smoothly for you and the rest of the members traveling.


Destination Wedding Specialist

I love to see couples starting their lives together. Being able to share wonderful moments with family and friends while relaxing in beautiful locations is why I love destination weddings. There is no better way to start out a new life! Let me help you make the process of planning your destination wedding a smooth and worry-free experience!


Ireland Travel Specialist

My favorite international destination is without hesitation, Ireland. I love being in a destination such as Ireland, where you see people from all around the world who are just like us, yet so different. I have taken five trips to Ireland, and each visit is just as amazing. The castles and 700ft Cliffs are truly a sight to see. I always feel like it is time to go back. Ireland and its people make you feel right at home, who wouldn’t want to go back?

Every destination I go to for the first time is my favorite. But the destinations that I really love are the ones that come from my heritage. Ireland, Scotland, England, and Sweden. I can’t wait to discover more of these amazing destinations that reflect so much of who I am.
