Destination Wedding Specialist

Being in the travel industry for over twenty-five years, I am happy to fulfill my passion for travel by assisting fellow travelers in finding destinations that spark their interests, soothes their souls and satisfies their zest for adventure.

An Island Girl at heart, my expertise lies in the Caribbean with a magical connection to St. John, USVI. The Virgin Islands encompass the best of the old and new Caribbean with untouched beaches, historical ruins, world-class shopping, and renowned sailing conditions. Spending days on a sailboat hopping from island to island along the archipelago, I have visited most of the islands within the chain. From the pristine beaches of Anguilla to the towering Pitons in St. Lucia, each island’s unique flavor offers traits to satisfy anyone with an appetite for travel.

Most recently my work has focused on destination weddings, arranging the perfect ceremony in an idyllic setting with the happy couple surrounded by family and friends enjoying all the best resorts across the globe as well as creating custom European itineraries including river cruises and independent travel.

From a couple hoping for a romantic getaway, to festive girls’ trips and thrilling theme parks to entice the whole family, I can arrange dream vacations without my clients having to lift a finger. My ultimate goal is to hear happy reviews and know that I provided the ultimate vacation experience for my clients.

My Travel Stories

In the Wake of JoJo - A Turks & Caicos Tail

JoJo. I had heard about him for years. Various documentaries and PBS programs had allowed me a glimpse into his life under the sea. His celebrity status even paved the way for him to rub shoulders, or in his case, tails, with Robin Williams in a segment for the popular PBS series, In the Wild.

My Fabulous Birthday trip to France!
Tammy has been working in the travel industry for many years, and her eye for detail caught many issues and corrected them before we even left for our trip. This gave us such peace of mind when traveling overseas so that we could enjoy our trip even more! We traveled to four distinct areas of France and stayed 3-4 days in each of them so we didnt feel like we were just running from one place to the next and living out of a suitcase. She searched out boutique hotels and B&B's in our price range so we really had stellar accommodations and all of them employed staff that was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area we were staying in. It was a perfect mix of seeing all of the sites, combined with plenty of free time on our own to enjoy the beach or people watch in Parisian cafes. I couldn't have hoped for a more amazing way to spend my birthday!

Grace Under The Coronavirus Fire
During the imminent Coronavirus crisis Tammy was able to get us an upgrade to a balcony room after hours on hold. When we knew the cruise was going to be possibly blocked from returning to US she spent 2 days getting us a credit and giving us much peace of mind.

Tammy was incredibly wonderful and we cannot wait to reschedule once things have calmed down.

Thank you Tammy!

You are most welcome, as I was so happy to be able to extend that upgrade to you even though ultimately coronavirus stepped in and put a glitch in your plans. Understanding and gracious clients like you make my job even more enjoyable and I cannot wait to get you rebooked for a well-deserved trip to Paradise! Thank you!
