I have always had both a love of adventure and a knack for networking. Being a travel consultant lets me indulge in both. It is a real pleasure to design a dream getaways for a client, and being part of the Virtuoso network means I can introduce clients to the best providers in the world. I am so well connected all over the world, it is a pleasure to have those partners to use their expertice and MINE to plan perfectly.
I love to hear the stories that my clients relate about absolutely unique experiences that change their lives, like seeing a wildebeast born on safari, receiving gifts from my partners upon their arrival, shopping only the BEST shops in Venice, and attending a chamber music concert for ONLY local people.
I talk about travel in all of my social settings and clients are very eager to work with someone who has been there and done it all. I'm the best go-to girl for travel ever!
Cruise - Large ship, Honeymoon & Anniversary, Multi-generation, Resorts, Sun & Sand, Trips designed for Women
We accompanied my daughter, Trish and her husband, Carl, to show them the islands. We were Waikiki two nights at the Moana Surfrider, St. Regis Princeville in Kauai for 3 nights, and the Ritz Carlton Kapalua on Maui. A highlight was the magic show, Warren and Anabel in Maui. Don't miss that show! Kauai and the snorkling/whale watching adventure on the southwest side of the island was awesome.
Hong Kong, Vietnam and Cambodia
We hosted for Virtuoso Voyages on Seabourn to visit these Asian destinations. A highlight was sailing on a Junk and watching the locals who live and fish in the Mekong Delta go about their daily lives.
The Ritz Carlton, Honk Kong, was one of the best hotels we have ever visited. Amazing.
We joined several other couples to tour London, Bath and Hampshire to see beautiful castle properties now accommodating travelers, many 4th and 5th generation families.
Chelsea Flower Show and Private Gardens in the Cotswolds
I accompanied l6 girls to London and the Cotswolds to visit the largest, best flower show in the wolrd, met a garden designer who just completed the redesign of Kensington Palace Gardens, and visited Prince Charles Highgrove Private Gardens.
Uniworld has raised the bar in boutique river cruising. We enjoyed a 7 day trip from Paris to Normandy and the lovely ship. The interiors are designed by the Red Carnation Design Team, so they are just lovely. Service and personal attention to guests was superb.
