A destination is a place worthy of travel. It’s often a place where we’re willing to travel long distances to reach, either because it is distinctive, special, popular, off the beaten path – or possibly all of these!

Global Escapes

Athens, Georgia
My expertise spans two very diverse - albeit enchanting and exciting - destinations! The UNITED KINGDOM and HAWAII. My knowledge has been meticulously assembled by frequently exploring each destination in-depth and finding new hidden gems each time I visit. I also focus on maintaining a portfolio of favorite bespoke hotels, lodges and residences along the way, taking note of the unique qualities of each one and how they might appeal to my travelers. In addition to the tools at my disposal, I nurture a network of local contacts in both destinations to keep me apprised of new lodging, restaurants and attractions that open, as well as upcoming festivals and events. All these assets combined enable me to design travel plans that are tailored exactly to the wishes and priorities of each client.

As a professional travel advisor for over twenty years, I've traveled to and experienced many parts of our world on both land excursions and cruises. And many of my cruises have been to Mexico. I love Mexico! The locals are friendly, welcoming and accommodating. There is so much diversity in the country with opportunities to explore the ancient Mayan ruins, cenotes, water parks; also enjoy diving, snorkeling, sailing and an abundance of other water sports, as well as hiking and land excursions.

Alaska showcases unspoiled scenery, vast wilderness, spectacular glaciers, mountains and wildlife. Our last frontier offers a plethora of activities and opportunities - for both the adventure traveler as well as those of us who prefer to explore Alaska from the deck of a ship. Regardless of how you want to experience this Great Land - I can get you there! Before my career as a travel professional, I spent over a decade as an executive with cruise lines specializing in Alaska itineraries. From planning a milestone birthday, an anniversary trip, a multi-generational family land/cruise adventure, or a romantic honeymoon on an Alaskan cruise, with my in-depth knowledge, I can recommend and create an itinerary that ensures you see and do everything that you want to experience. My goal is to learn what is important to you. And, to earn your confidence and trust in my ability to create for you the most enjoyable Alaska cruise possible.

What a fun and exciting destination! Las Vegas truly offers something for everyone - from gaming to sightseeing, first class live entertainment, golf, concerts, fine dining, shopping, sporting events, nearby camping and hiking, and that's just the beginning of all there is to see and do here. I look forward to talking with you and learning your definition of a Las Vegas getaway. In fact, this destination was so compelling to me - that I relocated here so that I will know first-hand everything that's happening both in Las Vegas and the nearby areas. Prior to moving here, I stayed at numerous hotels/resorts and played at many of the popular poker bars. I am knowledgeable about the different events, attractions and concerts that take place on the Strip as well as what's happening downtown.

I'm very knowledgeable about the variety of accommodations available - ranging from ultra luxurious to budget.

I have all the details and look forward to working with you soon.

The Unique Traveler

Lincoln, California
I have two passions as a travel specialist: HAWAII and FAMILY (and multi-generational) TRAVEL. And in many ways, my favorite destination and my favorite special interest are intertwined. First and foremost, I love traveling with my own children and showing them the world. I have been traveling with my kids since they were infants and I have learned a lot along the way! 90% of my clients are families traveling with their children, ranging in age from infant through teens, for both domestic and foreign travel. In fact, I first visited the beautiful islands of Hawaii as a child and am now bringing my own children here to visit and to share with them all the culture, history, natural beauty, attractions, and activities this stunning destination has to offer. And now, I look forward to sharing with you the best of what I do best as together we plan your family vacation and/or your Hawaiian holiday.

Welcome to the islands of Hawaii - my favorite destination on earth! My interest in travel started at an early age, but my passion for travel began when I flew to Maui for my honeymoon almost a decade ago.

I take my passion seriously and have trained and traveled extensively to become a certified travel expert to the Hawaiian Islands. In addition, I am an Oahu Master Specialist certified by the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau (HVCB) and I've completed all certifications to become a Hawaiian Islands Specialist. My goal is to make your travel dreams come true!

Uniglobe Five Star Travel

Atlanta, Georgia
Back what feels like a million years ago, when one of the first-ever all-inclusive resorts debuted in Mexico, I was intrigued! Since then, I have grown to love the all-inclusive concept, and have had the pleasure of experiencing and visiting many all-inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. This all-inclusive concept has grown, changed, and matured into a category that not only meets but often exceeds the expectations of today's savvy travelers. In addition to providing expert advice on all-inclusive properties, I am also a specialist for Mexico. To say that I have first-hand knowledge of what to see and do in Mexico is an understatement, as I have lived in the Playa del Carmen area for over ten years, am fluent in Spanish, and I'm extremely familiar with the eastern region of Mexico including all-inclusive hotels and resorts, restaurants, attractions, and all that it offers!

Woodland Hills, California

I'm proud to say that I'm an expert for Alaska as well as a specialist for Sustainable Travel.

First, Alaska. As one who lives, breathes, and experiences unique destinations - no destination better describes "a perfect day" than this "Last Frontier." I look forward to sharing with you all that Alaska showcases, and why I love this Great Land! Together, with my husband and dog, we have explored Denali many times, driven well into the Arctic Circle - including a visit to the tiny miner town of Wiseman, and stayed at the least-visited and biggest National Park in the entire USA - Wrangell St. Elias (Did you know it is the size of Switzerland?).

Next, Sustainable Travel. I am eager to work with travelers who share my passion for sustainable travel, and to create unique, one-of-a-kind itineraries to destinations throughout the world. I pursue partners who care as much as I do. I believe, if we care for the world now, we can enjoy its natural beauty for many generations to come. If

Mexico is my favorite country and Los Cabos is my favorite destination. My fascination with Los Cabos began in 1987 when my husband surprised me with a wedding anniversary vacation. I was enamored instantly, and Los Cabos has been my go-to vacation destination ever since. As a highly-trained, professional travel advisor, I know how important it is to stay current on all resort properties, develop and maintain professional local contacts, stay current on new attractions, events, festivals, new restaurants, and everything there is to see and do that makes a visit here so enticing.

I know Mexico! Having grown up on the Texas/Mexico border, I was introduced to the Mexican culture and lifestyle at any early age, and enjoy very much the people, customs, and cuisine - and all that Mexico has to offer. Having traveled throughout the country, I love the diversity and have found there is truly something for everyone in this dynamic country - from amazing architectural sites, colonial to modern architecture, ancient ruins, beautiful beaches and stunning all-inclusive resorts; plus diving, golf, snorkeling, sailing, and deep-sea fishing opportunities on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts. I've been fortunate to travel throughout the world, and I always return to Mexico knowing that this destination continually offers some of the best customer service I have experienced.
