ime is a valuable asset, and one of my greatest loves is helping clients travel to their dream destinations, create family memories, and enrich their lives.
Traveling has always been part of my life; the family vacations in the station wagon from my hometown of South Bend, Indiana, followed by opportunities to study for a year in Belgium and another year in France. After a career with the U.S. House of Representatives, I enrolled at the International Institute of Travel in Washington, DC. For the past 32 years, I have lived in the rich international community of the DC metro area, while sharing my passion for travel.
I’ve visited Europe and the Mediterranean many times; my favorite spots include Spain, Italy and the Greek Islands. Istanbul, Turkey has a cherished place my heart. Its history, architecture, sights, sounds, cuisine and friendly people made me break my rule of not visiting the same place twice. New Zealand is a new favorite for it’s natural beauty, adventure tours and friendly people.
I have planned many milestone celebrations, family adventures, and group tours throughout my career. I am particularly proud of a recent New Zealand vacation I organized for a family of five who flew on three different dates, visited all the natural wonders possible and vacationed 14 days to 40 days.
As a Certified Travel Consultant (CTC) and Master Cruise Counselor (MCC), I specialize in luxury travel, river cruises, and multi-generational trips. I enjoy getting to know my clients. I listen closely, ask questions, present appealing options and handle each and every detail promptly and efficiently.
I look forward to helping you plan your own vacation of a lifetime!
why we go
We travel not to escape life, but to ensure life does not escape us.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes.
Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.
Many a trip continues long after movement in time and space have ceased.
