I have been a world traveler for over 30 years. I married a professional Army officer, and visited 27 countries before I was 27 years old. I escorted my first tour groups in Europe and the Middle East in the late 1970's.
I feel that to optimize your travel experience, savvy travelers should immerse themselves in the cultures of their destinations.
Upon returning to the United States, I focused on being a sales and customer service training executive for a Fortune 500 corporation. But I continued to travel with cruises to the Caribbean, and tours to South Korea, Hong Kong, and Thailand.
In 1996, after a two-week trip to Alaska, and a 11-day cruise through the Panama Canal, I knew that the travel industry was my true love.
I knew that by combining my travel knowledge and experience, with my passion for customer service, that I could provide my clients with a superlative travel experience.
My industry credentials include Master Cruise Consultant (MCC), Luxury Cruise Specialist (LCS), SpaFinder Expert, and a member of Virtuoso's Travel Advisory Board for Islands, Caribbean Travel+Life, and Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazines.
I am eager to plan all of your trips so they will each be a trip of memories to last a lifetime!

The Iditarod Sled Dog
Imagine the excitement of 87 teams of 16 dogs racing 1000 miles thru Alaska over 9 of more days. This is a trip of a lifetime.
Cancun and more
Banyan Tree Mayakoba has the most romantic and luxurious villas with private pools, excellent caring service and hammocks to enjoy the breeze.
Turks & Caicos
The Palms has the most gorgeous beach and turquoise water I have ever seen. Combine that with huge rooms, great food and wonderful service and it is not to be missed.
US history and stunning landscapes abound. Aboard the USS Legacy, you unpack once and learn all about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and visit fascinating small cities.
Amazing hotels that are truly back to nature.
Wonderful friendly people. Wildlife everywhere.
After 5 trips, I still want to return. I loved visiting an organic farm with "sweet" coffee.
Four Seasons Nevis has it all-wonderful views,
great staff, eco golf to feed fish at the same time as golfing, wonderful catamaran trip, monkeys, sand crabs and great food. I dream of a trip back.
Old Edwards Inn
This is a place to enjoy being cared for every minute you are there. A great town to shop and wander, amazing food at the inn,Dove bars and apples for snacking, amazing spa, and heated floors
in every bathroom. Why would anyone not visit here?
The gigantic gorgeous glaciers, the friendly fun people, the fresh seafood, the great shopping and the never ending scenery make this a trip to do over and over and over. I am even going back for the Iditarod
Sled dog race.
I escaped with Evergreen Escapes and Savor Seattle.
What an ultimate food walking tour. Fun and flavorful.
Hotel 1000 well deserving of the excellent rating it has.Wonderful in every way. Mt Rainier with gourmet dinner at sunset with Evergreen could not have been better.

"Hi Trish!..England was FABULOUS!!! We so enjoyed our Cotswalds tour guide, Michael Neilan. He was PERFECT. I can’t say enough about The Milestone and Great Fosters. The Milestone’s service rivals (and beats) Ritz-Carlton’s, in my opinion! Thank you for all of your assistance! - Christine & Jeff
