German and Senior Cruise Specialist, Fort Myers, FL
| ext 6406
Personalized Service and Bi-lingual in German
Because the travel agent business is so competitive, I always strive to provide premium service for my clients that goes above and beyond what others might give them.
For example, I once drove 300 miles to meet with a client. I am able to deliver travel document to client within a certain radius of my home.
I do these things because I want every one of my clients to feel special and well taken care of.
I have been an agent for 26 years and have a total of 44 years in the travel industry
. Prior to becoming a travel agent, I worked for Scandinavian Airlines for
16 years in both its reservations and rate departments.
Although, I make arrangements for all types of trips, my expertise lies in booking:
- Cruise tours
- Escorted tours
I am also bilingual -- having been born and raised in Germany -- so I am very comfortable working with German-speaking customers who would prefer to book
their trips using their native tongue.
In addition to my many years making travel arrangements for clients, I also enjoy traveling. My favorite trip so far was a river cruise that I took through Egypt.
It was a fascinating trip that was very rich in history.
Traveling frequently has been very important as it has helped me to accumulate a wealth of knowledge, ideas and tips that I can I now share with my clients.
If you enjoy attentive personalized service and working with someone who will always go the extra mile while planning your trip,
contact me. I will work closely with you to choose the trip or adventure that will be just perfect for you.
Group Leader Specialist
| ext 6409
Hans Christian Andersen once said "To travel is to live", I can help you live to travel!
For more than 30 years, I have been enjoying a career in the travel industry while also taking every opportunity available to experience the world abroad. I have been
to more than 24 different countries, and I even spent a year living in Austria. I believe that cultural immersion is the best way to enjoy a new destination, and I
love to provide my clients with local and authentic opportunities while they travel.
I specialize in the following travel opportunities:
- Group travel — I love to work with group leaders in order to create an itinerary to an exciting destination that will accommodate the interests of every member of the group. I grew up the group travel industry, and I have a fondness for creating these unique adventures that allow people to bond over the experience of travel.
- Fundraising groups — I have significant experience working as a fundraising organizer, and I have found that fundraising trips are a wonderful way to raise money for worthy causes and organizations. Interested fundraising groups can work with me to create an itinerary that allows the travelers to enjoy their vacation while also fundraising for a cause close to their heart.
- Destination weddings and honeymoons — There is nothing more enjoyable than working with two people who are in love and excited to start their next journey in life together. I help couples navigate the process of planning a destination wedding, and I especially like combining these two big vacations into one memorable weddingmoon!

European Destinations and Group Travel Specialist
| ext 6207
Let me plan your bucket list trip!
I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years, and I have traveled extensively in Europe, the Caribbean, Alaska and really too many places to even name.
I have an unlimited knowledge of planning incredible and sometimes once in a lifetime vacations.
If I do not have the answer on the tip of my tongue I certainly know exactly where to find it. I enjoy the digging for the most unusual or the very best
locations that really do make dreams come true.
One of my truly favorite vacations is the European River cruises, I would happily do one every year if I could. They are the most relaxing, yet best way to see the older and smaller side of Europe. We are able to dock in the smaller towns like Melk and walk up to the Abbey and see all of the History right there. I just love it.
I have always loved the travel industry, at least the vacation end of it, I never wanted to send the business people away from their familys. I just wanted to help those same people get to spend extended time with their families after having been away for a long time...They are always excited to plan, go and then tell me about how great it was.
I love when a bride calls in and says I want to get married in another country and have as many of my family there as possible. Helping them determine a budget, based on time of year and a location, whether to go with a free wedding location or one with different costs. All brides and grooms are different and they each want their day to be special to them and the way they have always dreamed about it, so you really have to listen to them from the beginning and stay on top of all the different options available from all of the hotels that offer weddings.
I also love when a multi generational family wants information on Walt Disney World, (I can't wait for my own grand children to get a little older so we can do this one ourselves) I think that is one of the best memories a family can have with grand parents, kids, and mom and dad all together at Disney there is something for everyone and there really is nothing to not like. Plus Disney offers such a wide range of resorts from Value to Luxury and specials during the slower time of year that most of the time anyone can save up for it.

region, and experienced every aspect of the weddings that are offered at those locations. I tasted the cakes and the meals, and enjoyed the ceremony examples.
This is a unique first-hand experience that not many other travel agents have had, and it allows me to give my clients expert recommendations for their own
When I am working with a couple on their honeymoon, I always begin by asking them where they have traveled to previously and what types of activities they want to
enjoy on their trip. This helps me identify a destination that will meet all of their needs, and allow them to enjoy a brand-new adventure together. Some of my
favorite honeymoon destinations include Jamaica, Costa Rica, Mexico, Hawaii and St. Lucia.
