I have had a sense of wanderlust since I was a child, always yearning to go off and explore the world.


I will take my own personal passion for travel and use it to craft an extraordinary luxury experience for you.


Europe is my specialty, I visit at least twice a year, I have personally traveled to more than half of the countries in Europe and have visited Italy over 25 times.


The first-hand knowledge I gain from my own adventures I will utilize to create your inspiring journey.


I work with many tour providers, whether you wish a private custom excursion, a rail package with a local concierge in each city, or a group tour, I not only can arrange it, I have personally experienced the product.


As much as I enjoy land tours, I have become enamored with luxury river cruises.


After my first glide down the Danube I was hooked!


I have sailed nine different itineraries in both Europe and Asia and have two more currently booked. I make it a point to cruise at least once a year so that I can keep up with new ships, and offerings.


It is one thing to read about a product, to fully understand all the nuances of a journey, and how it will fit their client's personality, one needs to experience it first-hand, and more than once!


On a river cruise luxury abounds with high end bath products, indulgent linens, and extraordinary service all along your journey. River cruising is such a delightful experience, similar to staying in a high-end boutique hotel, except that it travels along with you.


No detail is overlooked for your comfort, but you can leave your fancy clothes at home, I call it "laid-back luxury".


Wading through all of the choices in ships and itineraries can be overwhelming.       I will answer all your questions and show you photos and videos from my own journeys to narrow down the perfect cruise for you.


As one of the top selling Key Partners in the world for both Globus Tours and Avalon Waterways I have the unparalleled experience and skills to ask the right questions to match you up with the perfect itinerary for your interests and budget.


I look forward to working with you!

Feedback from a client-Bethany R.

Thank you for our fabulous trip to Italy!

Everything was perfect because you took care of every detail!

Our flights, hotels, transfers, local hosts at every turn.

When my sister's flight got cancelled (the only flight you didn't book for us),you stopped what you were doing and found her a new flight immediately at no extra cost.

We were amazed that you took the time to solve her problem even though you did not create it.

We also loved that you were able to personalize our itinerary to include exactly what we wanted, Rome,Venice and the Amalfi Coast!
You even contacted the Vatican on our behalf!

Your restaurant and sightseeing suggestions were spot on, and we appreciated all of your personal advice.
Thank you Ann for a magnificent vacation!

My Travel Stories

Incredible India -gliding the Ganges with Avalon

"Why India?"

I was asked that question from half the people that I told I was heading there on my next adventure.

My answer was simple, I find different cultures and religions fascinating and enjoy learning about them.

As an artist I was excited to see all of the beautiful monuments.

Best Honeymoon Ever
Ann was truly outstanding. She booked one of the best honeymoons a new bride can ask for. Her attention to detail, and her relentlessness in finding us the best deal was so wonderful and appreciated. Playa del Carmen was truly spectacular. Thank you for helping me obtain my first passport stamp. Looking forward to planning many more trips with you.

Our first trip to Europe!
My wife and I have been working with Ann for our 10th year this year. She has booked us everything from large cruise ships in the Caribbean, to land motorcoach tours and this year she has booked us a river cruise down the Danube for our 10th wedding anniversary. All I have to do is tell her where we are thinking of going on vacation(holiday) and she does the rest. She never stops working to get us the best deals and the most bang for our buck. Even after we book a trip, she is constantly looking for better flights, nicer rooms and even excursions that we may want to take. I have total trust in Ann as our agent, knowing we will have the best experience we could have ever asked for. Ann is always just an email or call away. I have never felt neglected or as if my littlest of questions is an inconvenience to her. She makes us feel as if we are her only clients, when she is dealing with hundreds of emails and calls from her many customers.

A no worries fantastic trip!
Ann is fantastic! From the very beginning, she took care of everything... and even things I didn't know needed taken care of. We took a globus tour and Ann made sure we got the best deals on airfare, airport transfers and even gave us advice on some of the optional tours. Ann goes over and beyond. She helped us plan our pretrip excursions and gave us maps and directions for suggestions and places we could visit on our free days during the tour. I cannot say enough and would definitely recommend Ann to anyone. I would not hesitate to use her again and again.
