Our partnerships with various cruise lines can give you the extra perks, group space, or amenities that can’t be found on your own. We’d love the opportunity to serve you. Our affiliation with Virtuoso can also give you hosted cruise options with additional perks.

Would you like to travel to a destination and immerse yourselves in the local culinary and spirit or wine culture? We can curate a trip that could include locally hosted dining, cooking class, cooking demonstrations, or tastings of the local wines and spirits.

If you are an active traveler, a soft adventure trip may be for you. Cycling, hiking, kayaking and more can be arranged as a private guided adventure or small group. If winter sports are in your wheelhouse, how about a skiing trip in Canada, France or New Zealand?

My Travel Guarantee to You

First and foremost, you’ll travel knowing that I’m available to assist you during your journey. In addition:

Worldwide Network

I have cultivated a worldwide network of suppliers and continue to travel extensively, bolstering my knowledge of the destinations I offer while vetting vendors, guides, and escorts. In 2018, my husband accepted a position in London, which allowed me easy access to exploring the UK, Ireland, and Europe. We made the decision to return to the US in 2021 and now reside in Florida.

Montecito Village Travel

My affiliation with Montecito Village Travel provides me with perks and advantages unavailable to the general public through the Virtuoso Consortium. MVT offers extensive access to contemporary and luxury suppliers, worldwide on-sites, and corporate programs … the sky is the limit when it comes to resources for planning our client’s travel.


I am a proud Certified Travel Counselor (CTC), newly certified in 2018. I also am a Destination Specialist for Tahiti, Fiji, Australia, Jamaica, Scotland and Italy and I’m always expanding my training and gaining new certifications. My newest certification is from the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) in which I am a Verified Agent.
