I began my career in the travel industry 18 years ago and have loved helping my clients create memorable travel experiences.

Favorite Destinations: It’s hard to pick just one! I love sharing my experiences from my travels to Peru, Morocco, Greece and the Caribbean. I also love cruising whether it is in the Caribbean or Mediterranean.

A highlight of my travels was the wonderful Scenic Danube River Cruise I took from Budapest to Nuremberg... a truly unforgettable experience! There is nothing like watching castles and villages go by as you relax on your cabin patio. Other highlights from my travels include an Insight Tour of Ireland where we kissed the Blarney Stone and spent the night at the Dromoland Castle. A Trafalgar Tour of Spain is another trip I will always remember... this is where we explored the Alhambra Palace, traveled to Gibraltar and were entertained by Flamenco dancers!

Last year I was lucky enough to take an adventure based tour to Peru where we stayed in the Amazon jungle, visited Machu Picchu - one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and visited the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Peru is such a beautiful country and there is nothing more surreal than seeing Machu Picchu for the first time.

I just recently returned from an amazing trip with Exodus Travels exploring Morocco. We got to take camels in to the Sahara Desert and sleep under the stars. A bucket list dream come true!

What I love most about my career is getting to know my clients and helping them see the world. I always look forward to them sharing their travel adventures when they return!
