About Me

Favorite Destination?

St. Thomas

 

Why is that your Favorite Destination?

The beaches are beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking but I have to say this is where I fell in love with snorkeling and kayaking. I actually came home from my trip and purchased my very first kayak. I not only get a soul smiling feeling while paddling, it takes me back to St Thomas each and every time. The wildlife sanctuary of Cas Cay is not only a bird lovers paradise, being an mature photographer as I'm typing I am brought right back to the beautiful volcanic cliffs which is home to the famous red Point Blow Hole, a kodak (instagram) moments for sure. This is also home to Blackbeards Castle which is a must see on Government Hill overlooking Fort Christian and the harbor. I will be returning in 2022 and can't wait to share with all my family, friends and clients. Thank you for reading.

 

What destination is on your bucket list?

Australia

 

Why is that destination on your bucket list?

I have had a love for Australia long as I can remember, flipping through the pages on the National Geographic as a child. I grew up watching Steve Irwin falling in love with not only the wildlife, but all the work they do in preserving their habitats. Let face it there are a couple of you out there who wanted to be besties with Crocodile Dundee 🙂 As a young adult I ended up having the nickname Bindi (Steve Erwin's daughter name) friends would say one day that gal will finally get to see those pages come to life. I will get there! Australia is not really on my bucket list it's actually on my MUST DO list and I would love to get a whole group together that has Australia on their top list and also those who can guide us along the way to the local hot spots.

Why should someone book their vacation with you?

Must Love Dogs... All joking aside, First, what I'm not looking for AAA sale, anyone can help you book a trip. I want to book you the next BEST VACATION you have ever had. I want you to come back tell your family and friends that this was a soul smiling vacation. Then I want you to let me know how much fun you had and share your photos. Pinch yourself because this is the feeling, I want you to have each and every time. I even want to know if there was something I could of done better, I want to hear all good or not so much. Whether it be a seamless flight to a non stop vacation around the world, we got this! I have to confess I'm not as well traveled as some of our other advisors, but I do know I've booked over 30 years for family, friends, coworker’s friends of their friends, neighbors, teachers all before becoming an advisor of AAA. I did this all for my willingness to help others and passion for travel, I call it my volunteered time for the greater good. I have to say maybe 75% of my clients have invited me to join them on the vacation I booked for them. while sitting at my desk. I have had a client ask who she needed to speak to get me the time off, I chuckle at the thought. We all have a certain style of booking and I'm sure I will not let you down! Thanks for reading!
