A Certified Travel Associate (CTA) - with a career in travel for over 30 years, my interest first started at a very young age traveling the world with my family. It's wonderful to have a career in something that I would have pursued as a hobby. Each day brings something new when planning trips for clients, whether it be destinations that I have already been to that conjure up fond memories - or living vicariously through my client's experiences in places I haven't yet gotten to. My expertise lies greatly in presenting top level customer service; finding out what someone's dream is and turning it into reality. Although visiting a particular destination absolutely includes seeing the major sights, it's equally important to truly feel and breathe the destination through local people - wandering off the beaten track and getting to experience the neighborhoods and markets as a local. There hasn't been a trip that I've planned that I didn't want to go on that very minute. In order to be good at what you do, you have to be passionate about it and travel is certainly my passion.
