I have been in the travel industry going on 34 years!! Not many people can say that.  I often get asked "What is your favorite destination?"  Well, as some people say, "you can't stop at just one".


Some of my "passions" (besides travel of course) include all things nature, birds, seeing animals in their wild environment, beaches, snorkeling, photography opportunities, visiting locals, to name a few. 


I have been to Costa Rica, Mexico, Jamaica, Australia and New Zealand multiple times. Last year I got to experience the wonder and beauty of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. 


Adventures I have had include riding a camel by Uluru, trekking to see Aboriginal at in the Top End, doing a Bridge Climb of Sydney Bridge and attempting to surf on Bondi Beach in Australia.  I have taken a helicopter to hike on a glacier and gotten to see glow worms while Black Water Rafting in New Zealand.  Of course, no trip to either of those countries is complete without a visit to a winery or two.


I have snorkeled with turtles and whale sharks in Mexico.  I will never forget snorkeling with wild sea lions in the Galapagos and getting within feet of wild tortoise, albatross, Galapagos hawk and sea lions basking in the sun.  I have whale watched in Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, Nova Scotia and New Zealand. 


 Now, more than ever it is important for you to use a travel agent to help you navigate any rules and regulations for travel.  I would love to not only help you with that, but to work with you to plan your next wonderful adventure.

Best Mexico Trip Yet!
We gave Jacqie a pretty big list of requests and a smaller budget and she delivered on all of them!!! She gave us plenty of options and helped us narrow it down to the best place for us! Great vacation, can't wait to plan the next one!

Amazing, wonderful, best trip of our lives!
Utterly amazing. 2 of the people on our trip opted to do it alone with no agent-to their regret. Jacqui provided so much advice and expertise, it was wonderful.
