My love for Disney began as a child taking those treasured visits to Disneyland® Resort
. There was something so magical about being in a place where we could just have fun as a family, where my parents escaped with us and we all had fun together. I knew that I wanted to work for Disney, somehow some way…but back then it was just a dream.
Luckily, dreams do come true and in 1991 I left for the adventure of a lifetime as I was chosen to be part of the Disney College Program! I had no idea what Florida was like and no idea that my roommates would be from all over the world or that the friendships I would make would truly last a lifetime. All I knew was that my job description said, “Studio Attractions, Disney MGM Studios.” I had landed my dream job! I worked on the Special Effects and Production Tour at the new Disney MGM Studios and I was in heaven! I earned my official “Ducktorate” from the WDW College Program. I also have a B.S. in Speech Communications.
I had what we called a “Disney Romance,” as I met my husband (a Floridian), at the Fireworks Factory on Pleasure Island! I moved to Florida after graduating and continued to work at the studios and at the front desk of the Buena Vista Palace Hotel.
My background in travel and sales has led me to many jobs within the travel, hospitality and tourism industry. I am excited to combine my love of Disney and my travel knowledge to help you plan a Disney trip of a lifetime! I have always been the “go to” Disney person whenever friends and family are planning a trip so helping others plan their dream vacation seems like the perfect fit! Currently, I am a freelance writer and love to share my travel tips and destination stories with readers.
I love cities and love to travel… so ask me about California, Vegas, NYC or Chicago, Florida, Atlanta, Savannah, New Orleans, Seattle or my beloved Portland to name a few. Mexico the Caribbean the Bahamas and Jamaica as well as other popular cruise lines are other places on my international checklist.
My family and I have traveled to Disneyland® Resort and Walt Disney World® Resort so many times we have lost count! We’ve done the Disney Cruise and loved it! Traveling as a family has been a great experience for all of us and my children have literally grown-up with Disney.
I am thrilled to have this incredible opportunity to help you plan a dream vacation at the Disneyland® Resort or the incredible theme parks of the Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney Cruise Line, with four fabulous ships to choose from, or the beautiful Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i. Imagine the experience of a lifetime that will unfold when you book an Adventures by Disney® vacation. This is just the beginning as Disney will never be finished and is constantly changing just as Walt wanted it. Somehow I think he would be proud of what his dream created. I know I am honored to be part of the legacy of the Disney family.
