CARIBBEAN ALL-INCLUSIVE VACATION SPECIALIST I have been in the travel and hospitality field for the majority of my life with extensive travel to tropical destinations, including Cancun, Punta Cana, and Jamaica. I became enthralled with travel after my own destination wedding at Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I had been in the hotel industry for a few years, but my experience as a bride at the resort impressed me. I was able to notice many small, but important details: • how the staff was so excited and wanted to cater to me • how well the staff took care of the property and facilities • the high level of hospitality all the guests encounter. • how all the other guests on the property were also enjoying themselves It was from this experience that I knew I wanted to help others plan their own destination weddings and honeymoons. I spent the first part of my travel life in resorts and hotels. When I visit resorts today, I am constantly looking at all the minor details that you may not see at first but can impact your stay and experience. It is extremely important for me to know I am sending you to the resort that fits your needs and wants. I have high standards and look at hospitality, how their staff is treated, property maintenance, and more, as this can impact your experience. One of the first things I do with my new clients is to learn about them and their travel history. It is very important for me to understand exactly what my clients are looking for. I want to ensure their trip is personalized, and that it is everything they are looking for, and more. We get so few vacation days and I want to ensure that every detail is exactly what my client has envisioned.
