Travel has always been something that piqued my interest, starting right from the researching stage, to the anticipation of walking down the aisle to my seat on the plane, to finding the hidden gems in a destination and also checking off the well known tourist must-do’s.
I attended Fanshawe College and completed the Tourism & Travel program, which gave me the opportunity to work for Tourism London and become familiar with local tourism landmarks, followed by starting my career in the retail travel industry with 2000 Tours and then Expedia CruiseShipCenters (Expedia Cruises.) I have held various positions from part time to full time, and spent the last 10+ years in a management role, leading teams of hardworking and knowledgeable consultants to plan their clients’ dream vacations!
My personal favourite way to vacation is aboard a cruise ship, to unpack once but wake up every morning in a different destination – experiencing so many sights, smells, and making unforgettable memories along the way. I have been fortunate to sail aboard various ocean liners, from contemporary to luxury, as well as I have sailed aboard river cruise ships where it allows stepping off the gangway and directly into the heart of the small towns along the river. My travels have afforded me the opportunities to enjoy a glass of Prosecco from a rooftop restaurant directly across from the Colosseum, ride a horsedrawn carriage through the streets of Vienna, bask in the Bahamian sun on the island of Bimini, and experiencing the fish foot spa in Cozumel.
I’d love to chat with you about anything and everything travel – cruising, resorts, motorcoach tours, flights, hotels, insurance! If you can dream it up, I can help make it a reality! I started in the industry in 2007 and remain committed to continued learning to be a great resource to my clients and agents alike!
