Alaska and B.C. Cruises

As a certified Alaska expert and with over 20 years of travel planning experience, I could talk about Alaska for days! There is nothing more spectacular than watching a glacier calving under a sunny sky from the balcony of your cruise ship. Explore the coves of the ports on kayaks, whale watch in Juneau in Auke Bay with my favorite boat captain, and share in the excitement of seeing a pod of orcas swim near your ship. The first time I saw a humpback whale in Alaska, I was so excited I forgot I had my camera, but it remains a favorite memory! I plan a variety of Alaska cruise experiences – from cruises to small ship expeditions to private charters – as well as land extensions into the interior to see Denali National Park and beyond. Alaska showcases natural beauty and stunning glaciers, is home to abundant wildlife, and is certainly an adventurer's playground. I look forward to sharing my passion for, and experiences in, this "Last Frontier" so that your trip can be as amazing as my adventures have been–-or even more amazing! Please contact me today about this "Great Land"!

Insider Tip

The state sport of Alaska is dog mushing, which was once the primary mode of transportation in most of Alaska - ask me how to visit one of my favorite kennels!

Alaska

The first time I saw a humpback whale up close on an Alaska trip, I was so excited I forgot I had my camera, but never forgot the moment! For 20 years, Alaska remains a destination I love. Be sure and ask me about the captain with whom I sail who knows, by name, the humpback whales in Juneau's Auke Bay. Also, ask me what my favorite lodge is outside Denali National Park; or where the glacier lake is so clear it appears to be a mirror. Alaska showcases natural beauty and stunning glaciers, is home to abundant wildlife, and is certainly an adventurer's playground. I look forward to sharing my passion for and experiences in this "Last Frontier" so that your trip can be as amazing as my adventures have been–or even more amazing! Please contact me today about this "Great Land"!

Insider Tip

Ask me about the boat captain in Juneau with whom I sail. He knows the humpback whales in Auke Bay by name!

Jamaica
Jamaica

Soon come! Visit the beautiful island of Jamaica! With over 20 years of travel planning experience, Jamaica is one of my favorite Caribbean islands. From the naturally heart-shaped "jacuzzi" at Reach Falls, to sunsets in Negril so beautiful they make you fall in love, Jamaica is one of the most romantic vacation destinations in the world. I am a Certified Sandals Specialist and a Couples Resorts Ambassador (to name a few) to provide that expertise for your all-inclusive resort vacation. Bring the family too! The island is full of grand adventures and some of the best family resorts in the Caribbean. Even visit this tropical island on one of the many cruise ships that visit. Or maybe rent a villa on the ocean complete with a personal chef. I can arrange culinary classes, private catamaran sailings, snorkeling or diving tours, and unique family trips. Whatever your request, I am here to make sure all you have to worry about is what to pack!

Ask me how to participate in the same sport Jamaica is known for as the world’s first tropical country to take part in the Winter Olympics.

Florida
Florida

A native Floridian and a travel planner for over 20 years, I love to visit home! I grew up in the small town of Niceville, Florida, near the beaches of Destin. From the white sand beaches to the theme parks, there is so much to explore in Florida! I specialize in providing customized and unique vacations to the state beyond your average trip. Ask me about my favorite dining spots, some secret tips to find the best beaches, and how to navigate a day at any of the wonderful theme parks in the state. I even worked at Disney World! There are hidden treasures to find, and a customized trip I plan will provide a great mixture of fun and relaxing days. Wherever you are in Florida, you're never more than 60 miles from the nearest body of salt water. So whether you are planning a busy theme park-filled vacation, or wanting to watch the sunsets at the beach, or anything in between, I can help make your Sunshine State vacation dreams a reality!

Insider Tip

Ask me about my favorite snorkeling spot in The Florida Reef, which is the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States and the third-largest coral barrier reef system in the world!

Caribbean Cruises
Caribbean Cruises

Cruising is my passion, and nowhere are the people as warm and welcoming as they are in the Caribbean. As a travel planner for over 12 years and a mother, I understand the stresses of family travel, so I'm here to make the process a breeze and cost effective to boot! I'll plan an itinerary that will leave you feeling pampered for a fraction of what you'd expect; I'll also prepare you for costs that aren't included, like gratuities and shore excursions, so that you're never caught unawares. I'll share the favored way to greet a Jamaican, the best spot for spying the Caribbean Flamingo, or where to snorkel over a beautiful stretch of colorful coral. My tips will lead you to remote beaches, where locals might give you treats to feed to the fish, and will help you find the flower nicknamed "lobster claws" in a spot as idyllic as the Garden of Eden. From diving excursions through shipwrecks to rainforest tours on horseback, all the wonders of the Caribbean can be yours if you contact me today.

Insider Tip

Ask me about the "lolos" in St. Martin, where you can fill up on Creole shrimp, ribs, chicken, lobster, johnnycakes and coleslaw–for less than $10.

All Inclusive
All Inclusive

With over 20 years of travel planning experience, I feel there is nothing more relaxing than an all-inclusive resort vacation. I am a Certified Sandals Specialist as well as a Couples Resorts Ambassador, among other certifications, and visit the resorts or take continuing education classes as often as I can. Fabulous destinations such as Jamaica, Dominican Republic, and Cancun beckon, and there are all-inclusive destinations worldwide as well. Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, honeymoon, or family vacation, there is an all-inclusive resort to fit your needs. Think outside the box as well for all-inclusive travel, such as an escorted tour, or a package that include all meals and activities. Such adventures also include dude ranches, villa escapes, and yacht charters. This is a vacation that is paid up front with no hidden costs. I take the stress out of the planning, so all you have to do is worry about what to pack! Let's plan your getaway today!

Insider Tip

The greatest concentration of all-inclusive resorts in the world are around the Cancun, Mexico area but there are hidden gems worldwide – ask me about my favorite!

Honeymoon/Romance
Honeymoon/Romance

With over 20 years of travel planning experience and a romantic at heart, I enjoy planning honeymoon and romantic getaways. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Paris! These special trips deserve the attention of a dedicated and knowledgeable professional. Sip champagne while relaxing in a hammock on the deck of your overwater bungalow in Tahiti. Enjoy a sunset dinner on the beach in Jamaica. Relax at a resort exclusively for adults in Cancun. Watch the sunrise from the balcony of your suite onboard a cruise ship or your villa in the Mediterranean. From customized experiences to the romantic surprises, I am here to make sure that your honeymoon or romantic getaway is as unique and special as the memories you will make!

Disney Vacations
Disney Vacations

As a former Disney Cast Member, a Disney College Program Graduate, a Disney Passholder for many years, and an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner for over 20 years, I am ALL ears when it comes planning a vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth! I grew up in Florida, have visited the parks over 300 times, explored Disneyland Paris, and sailed on Disney Cruise Line. To say pixie dust runs in my veins is an understatement! There isn’t anything more magical than walking down Main Street U.S.A. to Cinderella’s Castle for the first time (or twentieth time!). Over the years, there have many changes to the parks, and they continue to evolve. Planning a Disney vacation can be daunting, but I help you navigate the mountain of information including the resort that best fits your vacation needs. I also share some Disney secrets too. Discussing updated policies and assisting with park and dining reservations are all part of my planning service – and at no extra charge to you! A Disney trip can be a trip of a lifetime and an investment of hard-earned vacation dollars, so I make the process stress free. Whether you’re a first-timer or bringing the grandkids for their first visit, I am here as your Fairy Godmother to make sure all your wishes come true!

Insider Tip

There are over 1,000 Hidden Mickeys throughout the parks and resorts – ask me how to find a few, and other Disney secrets as well!

Scuba Diving
Scuba Diving

My family and I started out as avid snorkelers. Every destination we visited, either on a cruise or at a resort, we always found time to visit a reef. But we wanted more, so we became PADI-certified scuba divers while on vacation in Jamaica one year. What a difference it has made! Now with over 20 years of travel planning experience, I love to help others discover the magic of seeing the ocean from a perspective the fish see! Whether you're looking to dive while visiting an all-inclusive resort, or want a scuba diving vacation, I can help you. From Australia, to Belize, to the Caribbean, to Indonesia, and the Florida Reef, there are so many underwater adventures waiting! Let me help you take a giant stride off the next dive boat for your next vacation!

Insider Tip

The trick with fish identification when diving is to be familiar with the fish family, not the species, so ask me about some signs you can use while diving to identify the fish you see!
