Why I Travel…
My love for travel started when I was 8yrs old with a trip to California. My father worked for TWA and free air fare was a huge perk of his job. While most kids my age were going to the Jersey Shore for summer vacation, I was off to Hawaii. I fell in love with every aspect of traveling. I loved experiencing new destinations, cultures, local cuisine and even flying. Life always seemed better on vacation. Traveling became an addiction for me and I knew immediately that I needed to be in this industry. I had to satisfy my own need for travel but also help others experience the joy of seeing the world. At 19, I started my career as a reservation agent at Apple Vacations and from there worked my way up to fulfilling my goal of becoming a luxury vacation consultant. As an agent I create lasting memories for my clients and the travel perks aren’t bad either. It is truly my calling.
Where I’ve Been…
Every trip I take is a unique adventure. I have traveled to all of the Hawaiian Islands and throughout most of the Caribbean. In fact, I’ve traveled in the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii so extensively I am a certified specialist with The Travel Institute. Bermuda, Turks and Caicos, St. Thomas, Grand Cayman, Antigua, Jamaica and Dominican Republic are just a few of the amazing islands that I have called my vacation paradise. My travel specialties are destination weddings, honeymoons and family travel.
