About Me:

I’m originally from Rochester and now live in the Syracuse area. I am a teacher by day and a home-based travel agent by night (kind of like a super hero).  I have two almost-grown children, 2 dogs and 2 cats.  I have always loved travel ever since I was a little girl, however, I wasn’t able to do much traveling until I became an adult.  My first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1990 and I was hooked.  Booking and planning my trips to Disney became an obsession for me.  Reading and researching everything was like a hobby.  I plan vacations for others with the excitement and thorough planning as if it were my own trip.  Not one bit of it seems like work!

How I Can Help You:

I pride myself in giving my clients exemplary service.  I can be as involved (or not involved) in the planning of your vacation as you’d like me to be.   This is your vacation and it should definitely be done your way!  With my experience in travel, I am able to anticipate many issues you may encounter and work with you to head them off.  Since I am a home-based agent I am very easy to get a hold of when an issue creeps up while you are away from home.  I also will keep an eye out for special travel deals and, if possible, will switch your vacation package over to the new deal if it can save you some money.

Industry Experience:

I am currently trained in Disney Destinations (Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney and Aulani resort in Hawaii), Universal Studios Florida, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Sandals and Beaches Resorts and Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. In addition to vacationing at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, on all 4 Disney Cruise ships and Costa Rica (through Adventures by Disney) I have been to France, London, Mexico and many of the Caribbean Islands.

Favorite Vacation:

My favorite vacation (so far) was my Adventures by Disney trip to Costa Rica.  What a fantastic country with wonderful people.  They were all so friendly and happy, you couldn’t help but feel the same.  I was able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and people with no worries since our Adventure Guides did everything for us!  Pura Vida!

Dream Vacation:

My dream vacation would be a transatlantic cruise to Europe and then visiting as many cities in the Mediterranean as I could squeeze in.  Visiting countries that I have only seen in books -- that is a dream vacation!

Travel Destinations:
Ocean Cruising
Universal Orlando
