Spain is my passion! I am fascinated with the culture, the people, the language and the lifestyle. I've been traveling to Spain for the last 20 years with my husband (a high school Spanish teacher who coordinates an annual student exchange program to Spain.) I've enhanced my expertise and knowledge of this marvelous destination. I've established and maintained very strong relationships with local colleagues who, not only keep me up-to-date on what's happening locally and within the country, but who have VIP access to many public events and venues. As such, I can get you the best seats at Flamenco shows, tickets to Real Madrid and Barcelona futbol games, and reservations at the best restaurants. And...VIP access to bull fights in Madrid. I will customize an itinerary that allows you to "Travel Like a Local" based on my personal travel experiences and connections.
I travel here at the very least twice a year to visit numerous regions. I am also fully-bilingual in both English and Spanish. My language expertise, plus extensive, in-depth travel has allowed me to create one-of-a-kind itineraries that reflect my client's passions and interests. My personal approach to planning one's travel includes asking questions and getting to know my client as to their interests, goals, and aspirations; where and how they've traveled to other destinations, etc. This is all extremely important to making sure that I create the perfect itinerary. Taking the time to know you ensures that I will research and retain the right partners on the ground to assist me in crafting that perfect vacation. To further ensure that your itinerary is the best it can be, I must be able to recommend accommodations and dining options that exceed your expectations.
Having recently lived in Spain for over two years, traveled there many times, and fluent in Spanish, sets me apart from other travel advisors. I love this country and all the amazing sights, people, cuisine, cultures, lifestyles and experiences it has to offer. My passion for Spain began at an early age when I wanted to study Spanish. From that humble beginning, I ultimately moved to Spain to teach English and quickly became fully-immersed in the lifestyle and culture. Now I look forward to utilizing my talents, expertise and knowledge to curate for you the perfect itinerary that will fulfill all your interests, answer all your questions, and provide you with a trip filled with memories to last a lifetime.
Twenty years ago, I had the fortunate opportunity to join a group of travel writers for a tour of Spain... and the rest is history! I fell in love with this country and all that it offered. Over the past two decades, I've continued my education of the Spanish culture and lifestyle through Tourism Spain's online classes, plus escorted many of my clients on vacations through the country's different regions. With each excursion, I continue to learn more and more about Spanish culture, food, people, history and attractions, so I can share even more passion and knowledge with you when we plan your upcoming vacation! I know and understand that travel is highly-personal and individualized, and I take pride in taking the time to get to know you, your personal interests, your ideas for what you want to see, do and experience.
As a travel consultant with over three decades of experience, I've been fortunate to have traveled the world. Spain is my favorite destination, as I've explored and experienced this dynamic destination on almost two dozen occasions! I know Spain. I know that it is renowned for its rich and diverse history, stunning architecture, world-famous artists and museums, cosmopolitan cuisines, gorgeous beaches, delightful climate, fine Spanish wines, fantastic festivals...and that's just the beginning of all there is to see, do and enjoy here! In addition to being a graduate of the Spain Expert Program in 2017, and having been recognized since 2004 as one of the "Top 125Agents in the World with a Specialization in Spain" by Travel+Leisure Magazine, I feel what sets me apart from other travel advisors is my sincere passion for this country!

I love this country! During the last 15 years as a travel professional, I've had the wonderful opportunity to visit, explore and experience this dynamic and diverse destination - at least 25 times! I am fluent in Spanish which has allowed me to explore in-depth almost every popular and major city, town and region. I'm also fortunate to have visited Spain in various circumstances - i.e. traveling solo, as part of a group, with family members, on educational (familiarization) trips and also aboard a cruise ship on a Mediterranean itinerary. In addition to being recognized as a destination specialist for both Spain and Portugal, I'm proud to be the recipient of the 360 Certification - awarded by the Spanish Tourist Board. Now, I'd like to use my knowledge and training to help you plan your perfect itinerary to visit this marvelous destination.
