About Page Image 1

I started my travel career purely by accident. I always had a love for travel and helping people. If it wasn’t for the blood, I’d probably be a nurse. I wanted to get out of the small Midwestern town in Northeastern Wisconsin that I grew up in when I was younger. I was fortunate to end up moving around the United States for my husband’s job. It took us from Wisconsin to Washington State, Arizona, Missouri, Georgia, Baltimore and finally Wichita, Kansas. Moving around the US is really when I became addicted to travel.

About Page Image 2My formal education is in teaching,  when I had my children, teaching and moving for my husband’s job wasn’t a good fit. Part-time travel planning was a good fit, I could raise my family and work. We got to take many family vacations over the past 2 plus decades. I fell in love with teaching… adults how to get more value for their vacation dollar and occasionally helping the geography-challenged.

Then just like that, my part time hobby became an important full time opportunity to help people.

I still love to learn about new destinations and services, constantly reading and attending workshops and specialist seminars. I eat the food (excellent and not so good), sleep in the beds, walk the beaches, and check out the entertainment first-hand. I believe life is too short for a bad vacation, especially if you have to save a year to take one!

What People Are Saying:

Trish, we really enjoyed the resort. Our room was great, our view, the food, the beach. You always do a great job of booking our flights too; allowing us enough time between planes (especially important with customs, etc.) Thanks for all your help!
-Debbie H.

Thank you for our wedding beach bags and helping us plan this amazing vacation. John and I are excited to start a new life together.
-John & Andrea G.

Thank you for your help, very easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable of what was needed to be done for the cruise and to get 4 families from 4 different states together with passports, shuttles, lodging and airfares. You dug deep for answers for everyone, going that extra step. Exactly what I was needing, thank you again!
-RJ Flemming.

Thank you so much for being the best travel agent ever! You’ve been so helpful in this process and I know our wedding vacation will be perfect thanks to you. Chris and I really appreciate your gift of the ocean view upgrade. Thanks,
-Carly (Future Mrs. Taft)
