Growing up the vacations I experienced were some of my fondest memories, and still the topic of wonderful conversations today!  I cherish those memories, my goal is to build an agency that can can provide exceptional personal service and stress free travel, so creating wonderful memories is our clients number one goal. 

I have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations around the world, but the blue waters and beautiful beaches of the Caribbean and Mexico are my passion. My favorite destination is St. Lucia, seeing the Pitons and visiting the volcanic mud baths then plunging in the beautiful waterfalls is a dream come true! I enjoy seeing the world with my husband, four children, parents and any other family members or friends that join along.

Traveling with family/friend groups or a colleagues for a corporate trip can make planning somewhat overwhelming, but that is my speciality!  I enjoy finding the perfect destination, coordinating every detail and working to ensure everyone has the best experience possible.  The bigger the challenge the more fun it is - reunions, large family vacations, special interest group travel, corporate incentive travel and destination weddings are my favorite.  

The agents of FlyOver Travel and Beach Happy Travel personally visit numerous properties each year and spend countless hours training on travel destinations, providers and experiences so we are educated and prepared to help our clients created their perfect vacation. 

My life motto... "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.  Throw off the the bowlines, set sail from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream and discover." Mark Twain

My love for travel started at a young age! As a child growing up in mid-Missouri, I was fortunate that my parents took our family to many countries around the world. Although I was young, I still have memories of visiting Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Germany, Paris, etc. Now with my own family, vacation have become a priority - with every school break and holiday focused on “where should we go now?

Over the years we have visited Hawaii 15 times, making it our home away from home. I love how each island has its own personality and feels like an entirely different vacation . We have skied in Switzerland, island hopped in Greece, enjoyed tapas in Spain, explored the sites of Italy several times, as well as visited London, Paris, Costa Rica and of course, places all over the Caribbean Islands and Mexico. Our bucket list for future vacations is long! 

I love working with clients in all stages of life - whether they are just starting out and planning their honeymoon, traveling with kids, multi-generational families, or empty nesters.  Vacations make people happy, and I love being a part it! I approach each trip by learning all I can about the region; even if I have been there before there is always something new to learn. A vacation is a combination of food, culture, history, relaxation and fun – and I love that my job lets me help people experience all of these!

For me travel is an adventure and a way to experience the culture and history of my destination. I like to see as much as possible on my trips. My vacations are not always relaxing, but I still find myself energized and rejuvenated after each one.

Growing up my family traveled by pulling a camper behind our station wagon and hitting the road for 2 weeks. My dad would draw a circular route on the atlas and we would stop along the way at anything that seemed interesting. My personal trips today take inspiration from that model – I plan my route or destination, accommodations, and some “must-see” stops, but I leave flexibility in my schedule for enjoying the unexpected treasures.

Some of my favorite cities in the world are Venice, Italy, Bergen, Norway, Brugge, Belgium, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I’ve experienced a lot of places but still have many more on my wish list – I think Spain is the next one I’ll check off.

Travelers have different objectives and interests, and I enjoy the challenge of the planning process. I pride myself on working closely with my clients to make sure their trip is as close to their version of perfect as possible.
