She invited me to join the Travel Dreams team and here I am.I am a certified SCUBA diver with extensive travel experience in Mexico and the Caribbean, providing me with firsthand knowledge of good places to visit for dive trips.

Extensive U.S. travel, thanks to my traveling parents, started at very young age. I was bitten by the travel bug! I have visited 41 of the 50 United States, the other 9 are on my bucket list along with many other destinations! My passion lies with Disney whether it is Disneyland in CA, Walt Disney World in FL, touring with Adventures by Disney or 23 cruises later with Disney Cruise Line to Alaska, the Caribbean or the Panama Canal, I love to talk Disney travel!! I have been through many Disney programs such as the College of Knowledge and the Disney Earmarked training conferences so I can stay on top of new offerings for my clients. I strive to get my clients the biggest bang for their bucks!! Groups are also a favorite of mine, either land or sea are always welcomed work! I get so personally involved helping with my clients plans, from weddings to birthdays to family gatherings, it is very rewarding to make so many travel dreams happen! My travel agent career started out in 1994 just booking Disney, but over the last 20 years has evolved to a full service travel consultant and I love my Travel Dreams job!! Dream on.....
