I began my career in travel in 1985 after many years in the medical field as a medical staff coordinator. Working in that capacity, I got my first introduction to the fast-paced and detail-oriented work of scheduling flights, hotels, meetings, and conferences, all of which helped me transition easily to the travel industry.
My first position in travel was on the management side, working with airline-regulated and corporate-mandated reporting, as well as airline and hotel contract negotiations on behalf of the agency. Garnering all facets of my previous positions, I focused my attention on corporate travel, along with some specific destination specialties for leisure travel (Hawaii, Alaska and Scotland, (some of my favorite places).
In the ensuing years, I was an agency owner, and then worked for many years as a Corporate Consultant and V.P. of Operations ~ giving me even more experience, as well as the confidence to venture out as an Independent Consultant & Destination Specialist. I love assisting my travelers, corporate or leisure, with all the nuances of their travel, whether domestic or international. With ever-growing technologies, and more readily available access to the Internet, I am able to be there to assist my clients with all of their travel needs.
