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

The Delightful Danube -river cruise with Avalon

      I adore the Danube River!     

     I have sailed it four times and will probably sail it many more.  There is nothing like gliding past the illuminated Parliament in Budapest, I will never tire of that sight! As it is a long river there are many different itinerary options...Read more.

The perfect honeymoon!
Ann was invaluable in helping my husband and I plan our honeymoon. We were all over the place from wanting to go on a Safari to or maybe Tahiti to trying a river cruise. She talked to us about things we had not even thought of such as that the time of year we would be traveling would be rainy season in Tahiti and made suggestions about the flight to South Africa that we might want to break it up as the longest we had flown was four hours before. In the end we decided on the river cruise and couldn’t be happier with our choice. She planned so many special details and seemed so vested in our happiness. I can’t recommend Ann enough!

River cruise
Our Danube cruise was cancelled this April due to the Covid 19 virus but Ann got us Ann our money back. As soon as there is a vaccine we will book again. She has been a good agent in the past.

So professional
Ann was so professional and personable in helping us plan my dream vacation to Switzerland and Germany. She gave me lots of travel hints and ideas for combining 2 separate Globus tours, which were both amazing. Any questions and concerns I had were addressed with ease, and she went above and beyond what she needed to do. I felt I was talking to a good friend whenever I called, and I strongly recommend her services.
