It was my parents who first ignited my passion for traveling. When I was a child, they loved taking me and my siblings on road trips to Disneyland, Las Vegas and other fun destinations. After a while, though, my siblings "outgrew" these trips and preferred to stay at home. I, on the other hand, kept on road tripping with my parents.  If there was a journey or an adventure to be taken, I was not going to turn it down.

Today, my love for travel has not only grown stronger; it has also morphed into a passion for helping others to achieve the joy I have always felt on each trip I have ever been on.  My wanderlust has taken me to many destinations over the years, including but not limited to: 

  • Dominican Republic
  • Hawaii
  • England, France, Switzerland
  • Galapagos Islands
  • New Zealand
  • Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan
  • Malaysia, Cambodia
  • Bali

I have also traveled extensively throughout Canada and the United States. All of these experiences have helped me to become a better travel consultant because with each adventure I completed came new and valuable lessons that I can now share with you. 

And while I love booking all types of travel, my specialty is helping my clients get the most out of their Disney vacation. I have been to these wonderful parks and resorts more than 40 times, so I know all of the best tricks and tips for saving money and time in lines. And whenever I feel a need to learn about any new changes at the parks, I also retake the Disney agent training.

In addition, I am also a graduate of the Travel Program at the Grant MacEwan College. And whenever I have the time, I attend as many industry webinars as I can. I believe that in this rapidly changing world, it is important to keep as up-to-date as possible on what is going on in the travel business. 

So if you're ready to book your next great adventure, I hope you'll contact me. I believe I have the education, experience and passion to finally turn all of your vacation dreams into wonderful realities.
