I have studied hard to earn certifications with many destination, tour operators and cruise lines.
I’ve brought many bands onto cruise ships. My largest group was 327 people.
I arrange totally customized trips for couples, families or groups. I specialize in groups of any size, cruises of any type, and tours in Central & Eastern Europe. I arrange destination weddings and honeymoons. I’m also a retired military spouse and love to work with military couples, families and groups.
I love being a travel advisor/consultant because I love to help people accomplish their dreams. I have always loved to travel and learn about new destinations and by helping others with their travel arrangements I also enrich myself.
A little about me:
I was born in Germany. I’ve lived in North Carolina, Colorado, California and now in Pennsylvania. I met my husband on a flight coming home from Hawaii to San Francisco, and have been happily married over 20 years. He retired from the Coast Guard after 26 years of service.
I retired from the US Army Corps of Engineers after 25 years of running the Emergency Operation Center for 10 years in Los Angeles and 15 years in San Francisco. I traveled a lot during those years, and I started arranging travel for friends. Quite naturally I started my own agency in 2005 after working for a couple of other agencies to learn the ins and outs. Now I’m able to run my business so I can best meet my clients’ needs
My other love is Dance - including Country 2-Step, West Coast Swing, Ballroom, and Polka. I’ve traveled far and wide to attend a dance, festival or competition over the last 40+ years. I prefer to participate, but watching that perfect couple on the floor is also fun. I was in a polka dance group for several years performing around Southern California. I won 2nd place in one competition in Michigan. I was also in a German dance group for a couple of years
