In high school I decided I wanted to be a Registered Nurse involved in taking care of people physically, mentally, spiritually.
I graduated from Nursing School and went on to become a Critical Care Nurse for many years and then an Educator in the Nursing field. During those years I also became a Mother of four incredible children.
My husband and I decided we wanted them to experience more of the world than either of us had so we started traveling as a family.
Eventually our love for travel led to a career change for myself as a Travel Advisor and I have never looked back.
Attention to details, thinking outside of the box, compassion, respect, and strong desire for the happiness of others were skills and characteristics utilized as a Registered Nurse, inherit in my roles as Mother and Wife and to this day are incorporated in my profession as a Travel Advisor.
I have visited 54 countries and some multiple times as an independent traveler, as a couple, as a family with children of various ages and as part of a Group.
These experiences have been true gifts in my life and I derive great joy in using them to assist others in creating their own world travel experiences.

"We have used Linda for years. She has never let us down and has become the standard by which we judge other service providers. If everyone could be as thorough, dedicated and spot on with their suggestions, the world would be a better place!" Robert M
"Linda did an absolutely amazing job of planning a small post wedding getaway as we were unable to fit in a full honeymoon into our calendars at this moment. Because of this, we had some pretty specific requirements, and Linda knew exactly what it was that we were looking for. Her recommendation was absolutely amazing, and she took care of all stresses that come with planning such a vacation without professional help. Because of all of this, we will continue to use Linda's services, and will recommend her to anyone who seeks a travel agent looking to cover absolutely every angle of their trip." Edward M
