A Lover’s Stroll in Paris, a cappuccino in Rome, a camel ride in Kenya, a swim with dolphins in Mexico. No dream is too big in the wonderful world of travel. In the past 9 years of being a travel professional, I have seen all these dreams and more become reality.

Destinations of specialty- South & Central America, Caribbean, Cruising, Disney and the Closest to my heart Destination Wedding’s. I have dealt with student groups, adult groups, families, singles, and passengers traveling with animals, sports equipment, medical equipment, senior travel and religious travel. Whether it’s one traveler or groups of sixty all of my client’s get that one on one service.

To give the best service, I can, I am always updating my knowledge through training, attending supplier events and traveling to destinations all over the world to bring the most updated ratings.

Travel is not only a destination it’s a journey. It is the culture, the food, the experience, the photographs we will forever carry in our memories. From the moment that a client steps foot in the office, or places that call I hold their dreams in my hands and that’s something I don’t take lightly. It is from that very first step that a beautiful journey begins and from the start all the way to the end I am with my clients every step of the way.

Dedication is what all my clients DESERVE & RECEIVE from that first single step they take.

I grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, and many years ago moved to Durham Region. I was lucky to have the opportunity to do quite a bit of traveling and decided to become a travel agent when friends kept asking where I just came back from and what I had seen.

I feel privileged to be in this industry, and to have had so many exquisite travel experiences: relaxing in the Caribbean, long stays in Mexico off the beaten path, going into the pit in Chichén Itzá, a complex of Mayan ruins to see the Temple of the Warriors up close, and visiting the Mexican “Magic Towns”, exploring their culture and culinary differences.

Some of my unforgettable experiences have included skiing in the Alps, exploring Austria’s musical heritage, touring the historic castles in Scotland and visiting the Viking fishing villages of Copenhagen, Denmark.

I would love the opportunity to help create your next unforgettable journey and turn your travel dreams into travel plans, it makes me feel like I am creating my own next big adventure!

If you can dream it up, I can plan it for you. Call me. I love to chat about travel!

From the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, to Peggy’s Cove and Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean and busy streets of London, I would love to use my travel experiences to help you find your dream vacation destination. Travel is something that I have been passionate about since a young age traveling across North America for sports.

With so much beauty in our world, there is no limit to where you can travel and what you can see. Whether it be an African safari, Greek island hopping, historic cities of Europe or all-inclusive vacations in the Caribbean, your travel options are endless. I can’t wait to help you explore your wishes and dreams and make those become a reality.

I have extensive knowledge when it comes to Canadian vacations as I have traveled much of our beautiful country. A gondola ride in the Rocky Mountains, and relaxing in the hot springs in Banff, AB are some of my favorite memories traveling through Canada.

In 2013, I got married on a beach in Cayo Coco, Cuba. If you have a destination wedding in mind, I can help! Destination weddings are something I am very passionate about. My experience is something I look forward to sharing with anyone who is thinking about having their wedding away from home.

I look forward to helping you tick those destinations off your travel bucket list. There are no travel plans too big or too small. I will help you plan your dream vacation as if it were my own.
