Hi everyone! I grew up in Lexington, KY and have lived in San Antonio, TX., Orlando, FL., and San Francisco, CA and traveled to many other cities across the US. I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Hospitality Management & Tourism and Minor in Business and during my time there I participated in the Disney College Program in 2007. After college I spent 5 years with Marriott International in Sales & Events in Lexington and San Antonio. I established a love for Disney early on as I made countless trips with my family! Now a mom to three boys, my desire is to create new memories with them and share my travel experiences with others. I have a diverse background from my education, employment, and personal experiences that allow me to offer the full package of expertise to care for my clients.
A planner at heart has allowed me to be organized and manage our busy lifestyle. Another passion that helped steer me toward a career in travel planning is my son, Logan. At three years old, he was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Those familiar with ASD, understand that daily tasks may be challenging to navigate, nonetheless, walking through airports, crowds, amusement parks, etc. This often deters many families to travel as it may be difficult or seem impossible to know how their loved ones will handle new experiences. Regardless of Logan’s diagnosis, I have always been dedicated to providing ample opportunities for him, including travel. However, I quickly realized that finding assistance for a family traveling with special needs was very cumbersome and daunting task. This helped me identify a need to help which led me to Dreamers Do Travels. My personal experiences and knowledge of ASD and other disabilities has helped me learn many tips and tricks around preparation, planning, and traveling with a child that has special needs.
I want to help people enjoy life, through travel and am excited to share my knowledge and experience. If I am able to help just one person, then I am happy to have made a positive impact for someone.
