I’ve been in the travel business for over 20 years. I started my career with a Bachelor of Science Degree from Arizona State University in Travel and Tourism. I worked at the 1984 Olympics, car rental agencies, five star resorts, and US Air. My experience has given me a well-rounded travel industry background, enabling me to provide my clients with excellent service. My favorite destination offering both the sun and relaxation is the Tahitian Islands; my husband and I honeymooned there. My favorite sightseeing and historical destination is anywhere in Europe. I enjoy traveling throughout Europe and visiting many amazing historical sites.
On a personal note, my daughter and I enjoy “treasure shopping” on the weekends at rummage sales and antique stores. I love hiking in the Santa Barbara Mountains with my family and my dog. I have a passion for K-12 education and I am involved in fundraising for the local schools. My family and I are avid car enthusiasts, especially older model Ferraris and Porches.I enjoy making my client’s dreams come true and making sure that they have a wonderful, memorable, easy care-free vacation.
“It’s not the destination, but the journey that is important”.
My most recent travel:
In April of 2012, I spent a two week vacation throughout Italy. It had always been a dream of mine so we decided to go for my “big” birthday! We traveled by train and car to Venice, Bologna, Maranello, Florence, and Rome. It was absolutely exhausting, but also so unbelievably beautiful! Venice was my favorite as there are narrow streets to meander and no cars are allowed. Florence was spectacular offering the Uffizi and the Academia Museums for the art enthusiast.
