Full Bio: I was born in Rochester, New York near Palmyra. As my father’s job opportunities expanded our family moved around the U.S. I have lived in Utah, Texas and California – so I guess that traveling has always been in my blood.

I traveled to Hawaii after high school and fell in love with the area. I attended BYU-Hawaii and majored in Travel & Tourism. I began my travel career in 1978 working as a Supervisor at the Polynesian Cultural Center. While living in Hawaii I had the opportunity to travel to Samoa and Tonga.

I started as a travel consultant in 1984. I have traveled to many places around the world, including Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Greece, Turkey, China, Bali, Singapore, Peru, Chile, Guatemala, Mexico, Easter Island, Australia, Europe and the Caribbean.
Some of my favorite travel memories include attending church at the BYU-Jerusalem Center in Israel, visiting the Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile and learning about the many vast cultures I have seen.



One of the most gratifying parts of my job is in helping people make their dreams come true. Knowing that I helped to create lifetime memories for my clients is a wonderful thing! I enjoy photography, scrap-booking, going to concerts and musical theater. I am an avid Disney fan, traveling to either Disneyland or Disneyworld every year since 1985!
