With twenty eight years in the travel industry I've seen just about every side of the business there is. 

My first experience ended with the demise of Eastern Airlines - an unfortunate turn for the airline, but a wonderful bit of luck for me. 

I moved from an airline to an agency, and I've never regretted the change.

I was raised in the south, in an age when traveling and discovering other cultures was, well... almost frowned upon. But my experience has shown me the wonder, the sheer joy of seeing the world through someone else's eyes, of walking in their shoes.

Travel is more than just seeing the sights and putting a check mark on your list of "places to go". It brings a change, a new way of seeing the world and everything in it - In fact, I can draw a line of similarity between my travels and the recent work I've done in Rwanda.

I specialize in "humanitarian" travel, and I'm proud to be a part of a
business development organization that enables people through microfinance. Seeing the transformation that occurs in people's lives as their self-perception changes is so rewarding. They begin to think of themselves as entrepreneurs, they develop a sense of dignity, of pride.

Travel, too - especially humanitarian travel - changes our perception of ourselves and the people around us. We return home with a new perspective on world itself, a new passion for life. It's that passion that I love bringing to my clients.

Had an amazing trip in 'March 2014 - Israel impacts you like no other destination - as you can't be passive about what you see and experience there - it confronts you with what you believe and brings to reality all the bible stories you have heard your whole life. Beautiful country and gracious hospitality.

Traveled all over the country in November - Taj Mahal - Ganges River - beautiful people - stayed in a variety of hotels from an old palace to 5 star luxury - what a country of contrasts - 

Traveled with group of business women facilitating a micro-finance group - humbling to watch a people rebuild and restore - lost hope and such a violent past- and move forward together to rebuild a country of peace - several in our group went gorilla trekking - still a little lacking in tourist infra-structure - but what a learning experience!

St. Lucia
Traveled to attend a symposium on destination weddings - and what a lovely island - stayed at Le Sport - wonderful all-inclusive with emphasis on health and wellness. Visited many hotels and met with all aspects of the wedding industry from florists to caterers. Saw lovely locations for the wedding of your dreams!
