With over 20 years of travel industry experience, I’ve traveled extensively throughout Europe, Egypt, Hawaii, Mexico, and the Caribbean. I’ve also traveled throughout the U.S. including National Parks and ski destinations.
From exquisite Pyramids to Museums, my trip to Egypt was the most exotic trip of a lifetime. My adventure started in Cairo with tours of the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. Steeped in history, the exquisite temples and monuments provided me a glimpse into the past of ancient kings and queens of Egypt. During this trip, I cruised on the Nile and experienced life on one of the most famous rivers in the world.
“I enjoy helping people find destinations that match their values and lifestyles, and what is important to them. My goal is to make their journey a memorable, personalized, and unforgettable experience.”
As an expert Disney Vacation Planner, I’ve had the opportunity to experience the 9-Day Peru Tour escorted by Adventures by Disney. “The Adventures By Disney Peru trip is filled with “magical moments” that are exclusive only to Disney. Their attention to detail and their experienced guides set them apart from many tour operators in the region. Their programs are designed to include travelers of all ages and promise to create memories that will last a lifetime.”
Costa Rica Adventure — without Sacrificing Luxury!
During a Tauck tour to Costa Rica, my colleague, Jean Riekers and I discovered that Costa Rica is one of the most biologically diverse areas of the world. Visitors can experience nature in its many forms. Plus, you don’t have to rough it during your trip to eco-paradise.
The accommodations were perfect and the food was very good. Overall, Tauck Bridges did a wonderful job and we would be happy to travel with them again. For families with younger members, Tauck Bridges is the Tauck brand that specializes in multi-generational travel.
I’ve recently earned my Tauck Certification joining less than 1% of the company’s worldwide network of travel agents who have successfully completed the program. Tauck is a 90-year-old leader in premium-quality guided travel, with over 120 land journeys and cruises to more than 70 countries and all seven continents. As a Certified Tauck agent, I can apply my specialized knowledge and expertise to my client’s trips.
