I am grateful for my love of travel, as this was a gift given to me as a child. The playtime and carefree days of traveling with my family are some of my favorite memories from growing up.
I fell in love with Disney when I took my first trip at 8 years old. Experiencing Disney for the first time as a parent brought back all those magical feelings and allowed me to be a kid again with my own children! For me, no trip to Disney is complete without watching the fireworks, tears in my eyes, dreaming about that next family adventure. There is something about seeing it through the eyes of a child that makes it even more magical. I have experienced Disney with small and large groups, friends and family, and kids of all ages; it never gets old and every trip, I experience something new that makes me fall in love all over again.
I took my love for travel and made it my career. I have instilled this passion in my own children, who are now 12, 15, and 17, and have been traveling with me since they were in diapers (and at times, multiple children were in them!)
Having been a part of the travel industry for almost 10 years, I've earned my diploma from the College of Disney Knowledge, I'm a Universal Orlando Resort Specialist and I have earned my IATA accreditation. I have been awarded multiple sales and achievement awards, recognized as a STAR at CruiseWorld, and I am proud to be a Certified Autism Travel Professional (CATP).
I am a Certified Travel Industry Executive (CTIE), having earned my designation from The Travel Institute, the oldest and most respected non-profit certification organization in the travel industry. These business credentials require that I have at least five years of travel industry work experience, completed rigorous management-focused certification and testing, and continue to fulfill stringent education requirements each year. Much like an accountant or doctor with their respective credentials, my CTIE designation means that I am committed to upholding the highest standards of my profession while providing expert guidance to my clients and my team.
Whether you are hoping for that dream Disney vacation, a magical visit to Universal Orlando Resort, or a family cruise vacation - I would be thrilled to make sure your vacation is everything you're hoping for. I treat my clients like my family, and I plan each trip like it's my own.
My motto is "Love what you do, do what you love", and I know you'll understand why when we start working together. I love what I do and can't wait to plan with you!
