I was born in Hollywood, California, and grew up in San Fernando Valley – a true California native!

My passion for travel was fueled when I was in high school and went on a cruise with my family....the exposure to various destinations, their cultures and traditions was eye-opening. I became an educational psychologist (Ph.D), which enabled me to understand people and assist them in the process of focusing on what they want. As my passion for travel grew, however, and because I am a “people” person, becoming a travel agent seemed like a good fit for me.

I especially enjoy designing & coordinating group celebrations, such as gathering family members across the United States for a surprise 80th Birthday Celebration. I also enjoy creating and exposing clients to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, like gaining special permission to enter parts of the Forbidden City not open to the general public. Another favorite involved a Wine Theme Group, which included customized, exclusive and unique experiences, such as private dinners & wine tastings with the owners of vineyards in Italy, and horseback riding, hiking, and bike riding through the vineyards.

Making dreams become a reality, making people happy, and creating trips of a lifetime is so personally rewarding!

Beyond travel, I love spending time with family & friends, walking my dog, exercising at the gym, cooking, yachting, biking, hiking, entertaining,  and doing volunteer work at local community centers.
