All-Inclusive Travel Advisor

With 37 years of experience in the travel industry, I thrive on helping clients realize their nomadic ambitions. I specialize in all-inclusive resorts, which allow travelers to pay all expenses upfront and then relax on well-deserved vacation days. Using my expertise in the Caribbean and Mexico, I highlight the wonders awaiting from the moment that magical journey begins.  


For me, the travel bug bit early in life. A Bermuda cruise at age 12 widened the world far beyond my childhood days in York County, Pennsylvania. From that eye-opening experience grew a desire to help others expand their horizons and explore cultures outside their own. I am a fortunate soul who has managed to fulfill that dream while still working from my home base in York County.


I consider myself an expert on all-inclusive journeys after countless client bookings over the decades, but also because of personal boots-on-the-ground experience. I’ve explored many different resorts in the Riviera Maya at least 20 times and have traveled to Bermuda and the Dominican Republic. I’ve also gained invaluable insights into Jamaican culture and activities through a FAM tour, which helps travel professionals discover the best vacation opportunities for clients.


I sincerely desire a good time for every traveler, and I always say: “I wouldn’t send you anywhere that I wouldn’t stay myself.”  I am partial to Secrets Resorts, which offers very good value for the money. Travelers enjoy well-appointed rooms, excellent food and accommodating staff. Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya is also impressive, and I’ve booked many trips there for repeat customers. Other standout all-inclusive resorts include Dreams, RIU, Iberostar and Moon Palace.


On days off, I relish spending time with family and friends. From board games to lawn games, tea times, cooking, dining, reading, and wine and beer tasting events, I enjoy a full and rewarding life.

Best travel agent!
I have used Lori for our travel planning for about 7 years now. We have had her plan trips to Disney, cruises (both Disney and Royal Caribbean), trips to resorts in both Jamaica and St. Lucia, and our best trip ever was to Hawaii. Lori listens to what you are looking for, asks your budget so that she can meet your needs and keep your pocketbook happy, and she is available every step of the way from planning through your actual trip...and usually checks with me when we return to see how everything went. She returns calls and emails promptly, which is not true of others I have used in the past. I truly can't say enough good things about her! I have referred several friends and family members to Lori, because I am confident she will serve them well. Happy travels!

We had a wonderful honeymoon experience
My wife and I booked our honeymoon with Lori, we had to postpone our honeymoon due to a death in the family. Lori was very kind and patient during the process, we didn't have insurance on our trip but she managed to get us a full refund and didn't charge us for the booking! We later rebooked our trip with her and the same resort we had previously booked.
We are very grateful!
Also, during the early planning stages, Lori worked tirelessly to find our perfect fit. After our trip we can say we are very satisfied with the entire booking!
Thank you Lori!
