I have always enjoyed traveling to new destinations, but it wasn’t until becoming an adult and having my own family that I began to fully appreciate the history and culture behind the destination. Now, when I travel to a new coast or country, I always wonder about the people who have been there before me.

My favorite way to travel is by cruise ship. Cruising affords the opportunity to visit several ports of call on each journey. Each time you stop in a port and purchase local items, you are stimulating a local economy. Most cruise lines have unforgettable dining options as well. Much of the meal options are included, so it is like experiencing an all-inclusive. You always have the option to pay for a specialty meal in the steakhouse,  seafood venue, or other fine dining eatery, if you need a formal dining experience.

My passion behind my job…

When a client comes to me and asks for my help to plan their honeymoon, family vacation, or getaway, I try to plan it like it is my own vacation. When I don’t have firsthand knowledge of a particular destination, I have resources such as co-workers and vendor training to help me. I enjoy learning about each destination. I especially appreciate when I can participate in a training opportunity in destination.
