Profile details


I am the married mother of two adult children and have always loved to travel. Fortunately, my husband feels the same way! Born and raised in the South, I am something of a foodie. I will always check on local specialties and read about restaurants in any place I plan to travel. When working with clients, I believe in open communication and cooperative action. Confidentiality, a strong work ethic and the desire to do the best job possible motivate me to go the extra mile to ensure my client has the absolute best trip possible!

Travel style

I love all sorts of travel- both casual and luxurious! I have camped, stayed in rough-hewn mountain cabins and in luxury hotels. It is true, however, that the older I get, the more I appreciate not sleeping in a tent! My husband and I have walked the boulevards of Santiago, Chile and the beaches of Vina del Mar. We have toured the green countryside of Ireland, explored Moscow, taken the channel from England to France and enjoyed the Canadian Rockies while being pampered by Rocky Mountaineer’s gold-leaf service. We are in the early stages of planning a month in South America tentatively planned for Fall ‘24. Some other location could end up changing that however… ;-)

We love domestic travel as well and are especially knowledgeable of NC, SC and Georgia. We enjoy the Colorado Rockies, adore Washington state and have explored national parks. We have taken a family cruise to Alaska with our children, as well as numerous beach vacations and camping trips in various locales. It truly is all good!
