I love to help my clients with amazing vacations!
I grew up in Anna-Jonesboro, IL and went to college at John A Logan, Sangamon State University, graduating from SIU-C in 1998 with a BA.
I take all my past experience with management, planning, children, families, and military and wrap it up into an amazing vacation for my clients. I have been professionally planning vacations for families for the past 4 ½ years. My job is so rewarding and fulfilling and I absolutely love what I do.
I met my husband while working on the military base and we married in 2003. We are now retired from the US Air Force and live in Springfield, Nebraska with our two of our four children. I also find joy working with preschoolers as a swimming and gymnastics teacher.
I became a travel agent because it had been a passion and a dream for many years. I was a stay at home mom to my two youngest children and would plan vacations for friends and family just because I loved it so much. Many supportive friends and family encouraged me to step up and become an agent so I could help others the way I had helped them.
I love to help others and help them find joy and create amazing adventures for their families.
One of my favorite places in the world to travel is Florida!
It could be Walt Disney World, Universal, the beach or even Port Canaveral for a cruise. The weather and beauty in Florida draws me back as often as possible.
My latest adventure to Florida involved my youngest child’s 11th birthday. He read all of the Harry Potter books this summer in anticipation of being able to visit Harry Potter World and Universal Studios for his birthday. As always Universal and Florida did not disappoint. Florida gave us amazing weather for our trip and Universal created Magic for my little boy. As we got to Universal he was chosen to be in the Wand Sorting Ceremony and loved having his wand choose him. He got to eat at The Leaky Cauldron, and ride all the amazing rides that Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade had to offer. Upon returning to our room there was a cupcake tied to a mylar balloon with a bag of peanut M&M’s, that was enough to make his very happy, however, there was a plain envelope with his name on it sitting on the desk as well. He opened it to discover that it was his official invitation to be a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was over the moon and so excited.
The destination is not as important to me as making their dream vacation become reality.
Disney and Universal are very Magical places to plan trips for clients. For some that is Florida, Mexico or the Caribbean to play on the beach and soak up the sun. For others, it is Alaska, or Europe to take in the natural beauty of their surroundings or to follow along in the history books to so many amazing places. Wherever my clients want to visit that is the destination that I love most to book for them! It is all about bringing their dreams to reality.
