About Me

My friends have called me Party Planner all my life. My passion is to help people and make them happy.

I have not always been a travel agent, in my lifetime, I have been an Aerobics’ Instructor, Assistant Director at the local YWCA, a bank teller/bookkeeper, a Court Clerk, a Firefighter, an Arson Investigator, an Emergency Management Administrator, The Director of and Safety and Disaster Services for the Red Cross, the Executive Director of a Local Non-Profit and now finally the job of my dreams…an Agent with LoveShack Vacations!

Why Work With Me

Who I am, is the talent I bring to the planning process.

I feel what I offer to my couples is the ability to really listen to them – to not only hear what they are saying, but also pick up on those things that they don’t even realize are important to them. I work very hard to see the pictures in their heads and help them select the destination that will match what they have been dreaming of.

No cookie cutter honeymoons for my couples!

I view a honeymoon or destination wedding as a complete experience – from the time you leave your front door to the time you return and I will go beyond the travel logistics of a simple trip. I take into account the stress of the wedding and the need to recover and reconnect.

My couples come home relaxed, refreshed and ready to re-enter real life!

How I Got Started in Romance Travel

I have always had a passion for travel and adventure. In my 20’s I went on a trip to the Bahamas’, that trip made me fall in love with the Caribbean and the Beach.

I started Cruising and that led me to find even more places I want to go. In 2004 when Hurricane Ivan hit The Cayman Islands we had a trip scheduled for that next week with my Parents and Children. So by the power of a natural disaster, our plans changed to go to the Dominican Republic and I have been hooked ever since.

I have been to a large majority of the Caribbean Islands, but keep going back to Dominican Republic. I tell my husband each time we visit, “we are retiring here”, he just laughs. I have been to Punta Cana too many times to count and have explored.
