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. 


 


 


 

Mexico, Caribbean, Jamaica

I LOVE beach days... Who is with me?  

I have been to Mexico, Jamaica, and other points in the Caribbean numerous times.  I love the sand between my toes. 

I can help you find your perfect beach destination, either for a relaxing break, an adventure trip or a combination of both.  There are many all inclusive resorts to choose from.  Some cater to families, some to adults only, some have a fantastic combination of the two.   If all-inclusive isn't quite what you are looking for, let me know, there are other beach vacations to choose from.

Bucket List trip!
This was our first time visiting Alaska and doing a cruise. What a wonderful experience it was! Jacqie was able to explain everything to us prior to our trip starting, so nothing was a surprise! Great experience that we will remember forever!

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!
