About Me

I am the type of person that gets excited about traveling to a destination as close as an hour away from home. When my daughters were young, we would take day trips by choosing a direction north, east, south or west and drive until we saw the perfect location for our trip.

Over the years, my passion for travel has grown from local cities to international destinations. Yearly, I plan a family trip for my daughters and I. We have traveled to Belize, Cozumel, Haiti, Jamaica, New York, Atlanta as well as Honduras. Being successful at planning trips, I soon became the unofficial travel agent for my whole family. My passion and determination to help people plan the perfect vacation has inspired me to become a travel agent and a Romance Travel Specialist.

Why Work With Me

Satisfying my clients is a top priority. This is why I strive to give not just great service, but exemplary customer service. The reviews below are just a few reasons why anyone should work with me.

“Thank you Zandra for booking my weekend getaway at the Meritage Resort in Napa. I saved $55 dollars per night booking through you compared to making the reservation on my own and I didn’t have to do any of the leg work :-). Everything was outstanding. The free bottle of wine, free bottled water, free DVD and popcorn, free shuttle to and from downtown Napa AND free room upgrade with the outside patio was an extra plus (that was a real nice surprise). Thank you for making sure every detail of my trip was taken care of before I even reached the resort. I will ALWAYS make sure to contact Zandra for all my weekend getaways and vacations from now on. Thank you again for making sure everything turned out perfect!!”

How I Got Started in Romance Travel

Soon after becoming an agent with KHM Travel Group, I had the opportunity to plan several honeymoons, vow renewals, and familymoons. The joy I received from planning these special vacations was tremendous. I quickly discovered that my niche was in romance travel. Upon research, I found that KHM Travel Group has a romance travel division, LoveShack Vacations; I knew I had to be a part of it. I find the time I spend planning a honeymoon, vow renewal or vacation that clients will remember forever, is extremely fulfilling and rewarding for me.

    Ocean Coral & Turquesa, Riviera Maya

    The best features of the resort by far were the beach and the pools. We took only one excursion during the trip, which was ATVing. My favorite memory of the getaway was being on the beach under the sun with the bride and reminiscing of memories and being thankful of our friendship. Zandra was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family because of how thorough and easy the trip planning was. The itinerary was helpful. Payment plans were offered. Deadlines were reasonable. Reminders were given. Emails were responded quickly. Everything about the trip, from beginning to end, was so easy because of the thoroughness. Even a special email was sent wishing us a happy trip. I would definitely go back to Zandra for any future travel plans.” – Renalyn B.

    “I thoroughly enjoyed the resort as a whole, from the entertainment to the specialty restaurants, beach and the pool! If I had to pick one feature, it would definitely be the wide range of cuisine available and the friendly service throughout the resort! We embarked on one excursion while in Cancun at Native’s Park. Here we went ATVing, participated in a Mayan ritual, explored caves and swam in a cenote. Lunch was even provided! As the Maid of Honor, it was my duty to provide the most amazing time for my bride. With the help of Zandra, this was possible. The bride and fellow bridesmaid had a fabulous time. Plus, the added treats (cookies and marshmallow pops) that Zandra sent our way were a delight! From start to finish Zandra provided excellent customer service. Whether I had questions about the resort, flights, etc. or needed to change the resort because there was no swim up bar, she was there. She was able to find a resort that satisfied eight very different individuals. She provided thorough information about our trip, which made it easier to relay information to my group. She also provided payment plan options, payment reminders and went above and beyond with safe travels and welcome home messages. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family. While I expected the whole trip-planning ordeal to be a headache, you made sure I didn’t even have to lift a finger. You took care of not only myself, but each individual in my party. Even those that were not able to attend. Your knowledge, patience and customer service skills are stellar!” – Kenicia Z.
