Italy Destination Expert

As a travel agent and consultant for more than 30 years, I have facilitated countless journeys for people from all walks of life. I specialize in creating extraordinary vacations for extraordinary people, with a focus on travel to Italy. Through affiliation with the Travel Leaders Network, all resources are available for booking the ultimate experience for each vacation budget.


After growing up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and graduating from travel school in Charlotte, I now work from a home base in Charleston. With a father in the U.S. Air Force, my lust for travel grew from an early age. I hold a special affinity for Italy, having visited numerous times to embrace the art, antiquities, cuisine, and the overall zest for life that's unequaled anywhere in the world.


Clients benefit from my hands-on adventures in Italy, which comes in handy whether planning honeymoons in Positano or oenophile getaways in Tuscany. Travelers in my care have access to the best family villas, canal-front accommodations in Venice, shore excursions for cruise passengers, and romantic getaways in Bellagio. From opera afficianados to seekers of Sicilian sunshine, I know the ins and outs of getting them there.


Travel challenges are my forte, and I readily assist passengers with complicated schedules, transportation requirements, hotel selection and sightseeing coordination. I also use my wealth of knowledge to help solve documentation issues and facilitate personal requests. I've helped senior citizens encountering medical emergencies return safely to the USA, and have solved issues related to viruses, volcanoes, political unrest and lost passports.


In my down time, I enjoy the Charleston art scene, including plein air watercolor painting, and I relish culinary experimentation, hiking the Smoky Mountains, wave-watching at Folly Beach, and strolling the local bird sanctuary. I also love a good book and shaking up exotic cocktailsItaly
