“The memories you walk away with from vacation are priceless, so I treat each one of my client’s vacations as it were my own!”
I dabble in everything, but my specialty is Family Vacations, from theme parks to tropical resorts. I also work with large families that bring multiple generations together.
Growing up, Disney vacations were an annual thing for my family, and I’ve always loved offering advice on trip planning. I’ve always had a strong passion for traveling and, with a background in customer service, it seemed logical to blend the two into a job that I truly love.
I feel the most important quality in a travel agent is being a good listener. Through talking with you, I’m able to present options based on your wants and needs. I love working with families to find the perfect solutions for everyone so that the whole family will enjoy their time together. My clients can count on me to work tirelessly so they can go on their vacation worry-free.

“The best things in life are the people you love, places you go and memories you make.”
I chose this profession to share, experience,challenge myself, dive into adventures, not look back and wonder “if”.
Building creative itineraries, brainstorming, sharing stories, conveying do’s and don’ts and must sees of the desired travel adventure are passions of mine and I love listening to my clients needs/wants and helping them discover some they don’t even realize they need/want or could even dream of. Helping families focus on efficient and easy traveling with kids and extended family members is a specialty of mine and as a graduate of the Disney College Program Internship, I strive to help parents see vacations through their kids eyes – it’s truly magical!
I enjoy exploring different cultures. My husband is Bosnian and Croatian and I had the opportunityspend a month in Croatia, immersing myself in the culture, traveling like a tourist, but, living like family. I love all-inclusive vacations – especially Mexico, Riviera Cancun and the Dominican Republic. I have a personal goal to visit places I visited as a child with my three kids to see them through their eyes.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” – St. Augustine
My specialty is with the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Hawaii, and cruises. In addition, I’ll recommend places I’ve traveled to. I am a Hawaii specialist with a Travel Master Cruise Counselor certification.
I chose to become a travel agent for the opportunity to see the world, but also because I enjoy helping others to see the value in traveling. After working in the travel industry for many years, I decided to open my own travel business to offer a more personalized service to my clients. My hope is to encourage or help those to travel who many not otherwise do so. I’ve experienced many cultures and local customs, including joining in on folk dancing and sampling fine foods. I want others to experience the uniqueness that other cultures offer.
Returning clients are my greatest compliment. I cherish these relationships with clients turned friends.

“Adventure is out there” -Ellie, “Up”
I am a woman of many talents, love to travel and immerse myself in different cultures. In May 2018, I came onboard with Leisure Tours & Cruises after looking for the perfect place to begin my career in the travel industry. Meeting new people and getting to know them on a personal level is important to me, and, my goal is to take the stress out of planning so my clients can get the vacation they want, and more importantly- deserve!
My previous work experiences have all involved customer service. The biggest part of being successful in the travel industry is not only listening to what is being said, but, understanding what is not being said. As an insurance adjuster, I spent the greater part of my career assisting customers on some of the worse days of their lives. But now, I can use the skills I honed and I get to help create the best of memories that last a lifetime!

“Let’s make some magic!”
The first Disney trip I ever planned was my Senior project in High School. We were supposed to fully plan our “dream vacation” and mine was a Disney Cruise. That was where I realized my love of planning trips and through the years I have helped friends, family, and new friends plan their dream Disney vacations. I love the challenge that comes with trying to make sure every aspect of the trip is planned to the finest detail and seeing the joy it brings to my clients.
I have been a Soldier for 15 years and feel like my ability to see an end-goal and work towards it serves me well in the travel industry. There is no challenge too big for me- together we can make it happen. I have extensive experience in military benefits and helping those who protect us to enjoy their family time when they can get it. Everyone has a dream; I am here to make it a reality!

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” – Unknown
I believe there are two main factors which determine success. Determination and working at what you love. I am determined in everyday life to do the best possible job and leave no stone unturned. I love to travel – whether it’s a day trip, a long weekend away, cruising or flying to a destination. Visiting other countries and learning about their cultures is my passion. I want to explore all the possibilities that travel offers with others.
My work experience has had a great influence on who I am and my journey to fulfill my passion as a travel planner. I have a special affection for Disney which started when I was just out of college and had the opportunity to work as a Disney Cast Member. I was instantly enamored and my love for Disney hasn’t stopped 20 years later. My family and I continue to enjoy Disney, whether it’s cruising, visiting the parks or just wandering around Disney Springs.
I am looking forward to extending my passion for travel by working with you to fulfill your dream vacation wishes and helping create that memorable, one of a kind, vacation of a lifetime just for you.
