As an experienced and knowledgeable destination specialist, the first step in working with a new client is to really get to know you. What are your interests, dreams, aspirations? What kind of memories do you want? What makes New Zealand so compelling? Once I know, I'll create a genuine, 100% Pure New Zealand experience that will not only exceed your every expectation, but will be the beginning of many return visits to this destination.

I've been very fortunate to have been in the travel industry for over 25 years, and look forward to sharing with you my two favorite - and diverse - destinations New Zealand and California, and my specialty: Traveling with Disabilities.

First, we'll visit New Zealand. As a New Zealand Specialist Gold Level, I've tramped through forests, waded across snow-melting rivers, hiked up and down mountains, and stayed in accommodations that ranged from five-star+ to local farms -and everything in between - on these incredibly diverse North and South Islands.

My unique travel specialty - Traveling with Disabilities - is personal, as my aging parents have mobility issues and my sister - Down Syndrome. Having traveled with my family on numerous occasions and seeing and experiencing - first-hand - the special care they required, motivated me to become an expert and advocate!

Now...we're heading back to California and my home state.

To say I have experienced the best of New Zealand through a variety of fun and enjoyable activities, is an understatement! I have fished, golfed, hiked, kayaked, shopped, sipped fine local wines, and enjoyed many superb meals in this spectacular country. For almost 20 years, I've been recognized as a certified New Zealand Specialist by the New Zealand Tourism Board. Additionally, I was honored to be awarded the 2018 Gold Specialist 100% Pure New Zealand designation, in addition to other industry certifications. I'm eager to share my knowledge and experiences, travel-tips, and adventures with you.

As a Destination Specialist for New Zealand and a registered Gold Specialist via the Visitor Bureau, I'm committed to learning - and continuing to learn - everything I possibly can about this compelling destination. The two islands - North Island and South Island - are very diverse and each has its own culture.

For over 30 years I have created travel for my clients all over the world. But, my passion is the South Pacific - New Zealand and Australia in particular. A certified gold Kiwi Specialist with Tourism New Zealand, I know all of the adrenaline thrills New Zealand has to offer, including breathtaking scuba diving (I am an avid scuba diver myself), zorbing down hillsides, or bungee jumping. Australia is like a second home to me. It's filled with lifelong friends and connections, that I have made during my 47 visits. I have been a Premier Aussie Specialist with Tourism Australia since its inception.

New Zealand is my favorite destination on earth! Having been in the travel industry for over four decades and specializing in high-end luxury bespoke experiences, I've learned a lot about this enticing country and all that it offers. With every return visit to this "100% Pure" destination - I love it more, and I can't wait to share with you my experiences and expertise. Anyone can book a hotel room. The difference is that I add benefits and knowledge that can only be achieved by spending time at each destination. And that special knowledge and experience is what keeps my clients coming back.
