Rio Rancho, NM

Adventure/Exotic & Special Needs Travel Specialist

My career in travel began 25 years ago, when I had the opportunity to travel around the globe as a flight attendant. My job afforded me the opportunity to see some of the most magnificent cities and most beautiful destinations, while also giving me a chance to meet fantastic people from all walks of life. I've been to Hawaii more than 50 times, Italy more than a dozen times and so many other places I've actually lost count.

It's with this experience, insight and knowledge that I am able to craft expert itineraries for all of my clients. I'm a detail-oriented agent who can recommend unique experiences for your trip that will lead to memorable moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.

I specialize in booking the following types of trips:

  • Around-the-World Itineraries — For many people, a trip around the world seems like an unattainable experience. However, with the right agent, you can create a tour that allows you to visit all of the destinations on your bucket list for a price that fits within your budget. Not only am I capable of creating these complex itineraries, but I thrive on them. I love to piece together each portion of the trip and provide my clients with an action-packed itinerary that is suited for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
  • Special Needs Travel — I believe that everyone should travel the world without limitation, and I take pride in the accessible packages that I create for my clients. Whether someone needs handicapped-accessible accommodations in their destination, or if they want to take a sensory-friendly family trip, I will create an itinerary that meets all of their needs while exceeding their expectations.
  • Exotic Destination Tours — I am a destination specialist for Italy, Thailand and Hawaii. I love to help my clients plan their dream trips to these stunning destinations, complete with authentic, local experiences and cultural immersion opportunities.

If I could offer any advice, it's to travel all the time! This is the best way to experience the world around you while learning more about yourself along the way.
