Friends and family would probably describe me using two words, Food and Travel. Travel satisfies my insatiable need for the exciting and the exotic. I like to be fully immersed when I travel and enjoy using all of my senses when I explore to really get to know the places I visit. Each place that I visit changes me a little, and I feel I become a better, more authentic person. No words or pictures can fully describe what it is like to watch the sunset over the Costa Rican beaches, peer into the aqua lagoons of Bora Bora, or watch a lion cub nuzzle his mom on a hazy sunny afternoon on the plains of the Serengeti.

Travel planning is what I love, and what I do best. I would love the opportunity to share my stories, experiences and expertise with you in order to help you save time and maximize your experience on your next dream vacation.
I specialize in Destination Weddings, Exotic Honeymoons, Safaris and Culinary Experiences.

Since the time I took my first trip, I became a gypsy at heart. I have a true passion for travel. As I am coming home from a destination, I find myself thinking, “Where can I go next? I was fortunate to grow up in a family where travelling was a priority, whether it was a small family road trip, or an all inclusive vacation somewhere different each year, I loved every bit of it. My love of travelling kept growing so I decided to go to college and graduate from Travel and Tourism. After that I decided to take my Yoga Teacher Training Certification, I love how I can travel and teach yoga at the same time. So whether you want to discover the Caribbean, or experience the rich history and wine tours of Europe, plan a destination wedding or go on a Yoga & Wellness Retreat, I am your agent. The most rewarding part of working in the travel industry is helping others fulfill their travel dreams. I would love to assist you in planning an experience of a lifetime.

Just the thought of travelling gives me goosebumps! Seeing new sites I have never seen before and connecting with wonderful people to listen to their amazing stories about life is what really excites me. I have taken time off from being a travel agent to raise my daughters and have now found a new love of the trade as I start to travel with my girls in their teenage years. It is amazing to share my passion for exploring the world with them and I very much look forward to sharing this with you all as well. With travel experience to such exotic places as Dubai, Australia and the Magical World of Disney, let me pour my heart into making your dreams come true! Places I have travelled: Dubai, Australia, Florida - Disney, Dominican, New York, Cincinnati, Nashville, Chattanooga, PEI, Toronto, Montreal.

Do you love to travel?

If you answered yes, then we have something in common! Growing up, my family was fortunate to be able to take a few family vacations; that’s where my love began. Once I started making my own money, I just couldn’t stop. I went to college and received 2 diplomas, got married and had 2 beautiful little girls.

After 10 years working in Fire Prevention/Office, I decided to stay at home and raise our girls.My husband and I just couldn’t stop travelling.We even started taking our girls on their first vacations around 3 months of age. During my time with our girls I decided to go into Real Estate, but my heart and soul was telling me to do what I love and go into travel.After 3 years, I finally followed my heart and started in the travel industry, never looking back and loving every minute of my career.

I love helping others create their dream vacations and making memories of their own; while taking the stress off at the same time.

Whether it be a cruise, all-inclusive, Caribbean, European, North American, Canadian adventure and of course the list goes on, I am here to assist you!

Packing up my suitcase, touching down on unfamiliar ground, leaving behind my "safe place" and experiencing unknown things -- a new place while interacting with new people, is what sets my soul on fire!

Having studied Travel & Tourism at Seneca Collage, it was clear to me that no matter how much knowledge I absorbed in the classroom, there would be nothing more enriching that to just travel the world.

With 14 years in the travel agent industry, I have experienced so much more than I could ever have imagined. Whether it was during my own personal adventure or living through my client's journeys, travel is my lifetime love affair.

I specialize in Health & Wellness Journeys and Retreats, Destination Weddings & Honeymoons and Eco and Adventure Travel. Wen there's a will, there's a way and I am here to help you find your way to making all of your travel dreams come true!

My need to travel is constant – a huge part of that is escaping reality; the stress, the responsibility, the forever looking at the clock to see where you are needed next. When you are traveling (even with kids) the stress comes off, and you become the person you’re always hoping to be; relaxed, happy, fun, and maybe even romantic!

Whether you are travelling alone, as a couple, or as a family I can craft the perfect vacation for you! Want to be treated like royalty? Enjoy multiple resorts/destinations in one trip? Something family friendly with a kid’s club? Spa? Golf? Gourmet food? Vineyards and wine? Castles and breathtaking landscapes? Whatever the perfect vacation looks like for you I can assist in finding that place that includes all the amenities that will result in a memorable experience.

My background is in accounting and law, but I’ve always had a love for planning, and after my wedding I thought of pursuing a career in event planning but what could be better than combining my love of event planning and my passion of travel! So, if you appreciate great food, drinks and the little extra touches that will make your trip incredible, then I’m your girl!

No one gets to the end of their life and wishes they spent more time at the office. Am I right? Life becomes more fulfilling when we focus on taking time and investing in experiences over things.

Traveling is all about experiences.

And traveling has always been in my bones. I have traveled a number of places around the world - mostly solo. I like to focus on taking a journey. I like to uncover what makes a place special and unique and understand its history.

My expertise is Africa including Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia as well as Spain, Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

In addition to my travel experiences, I also have extensive experience in marketing, communications, management and event planning.
