I was fortunate enough to have 4 very knowledgeable and accomplished advisors when I first began my career as a Travel Advisor in 1998 at a very small agency.

Five years later, I found myself looking for an agency where I could retain the relationships I already had with my suppliers when I found Travel Experts and Virtuoso in 2003.

Since then, the training has become more intense and concise for the areas of the world I love. Travel is an ongoing journey of learning, gaining the experience I need to better serve my clients.

My specialties include but are not limited to: Luxury Travel, Multi-generational travel, Ireland and the UK, Italy and a lot of the Mediterranean and Cruising is my passion!

Cruises, Food & Wine, Independent, Multi-generation, Photography
Southern Caribbean on Seadream 1
Not your ordinary cruise, more like your own large, personal yacht that is all-inclusive except for shore excursions and the Spa. We visited ports I've never seen. Love that they have many water toys and things to do other than lay out on deck soaking the rays.

Crystal Cruises ~ LA down to Baja
Great cruise, my first, down the West Coast to several ports in Mexico before heading back up to San Diego ending where we began in LA!
The Symphony just had a refurbishment and she is looking wonderful. Each year Crystal gets high marks for both their service and food!

Flying on Virgin Atlantic to London
This was undoubtedly my best experience with flying, ever! We were graciously upgraded to Upper Class and treated to both the Lounge at Newark and their flagship Clubhouse at Heathrow! 
The trip was great and we visited several properties, however, the Virgin Clubhouse at Heathrow took the cake!

The brand new Seabourn yacht debut of the Odyssey
Even though I had reservations about Seabourn building a larger vessel, I had to see it before I felt comfortable selling her!
My loyalty still lies with the smaller sister yachts, but the new ones are awesome in their own right. The service is great as is the food.

Galapagos Islands with Lindblad
One of the best expeditions I've ever had the chance to do was in the Galapagos! As a lover of nature, this was right up my alley.
Each Island is unique. Amazing animals, birds and tortoise alike roaming free as the several species found only in these Islands.
