I was first introduced to the Joy of Travel when my husband (Jeff) and I embarked on our first trans-Atlantic vacation with an escorted Globus Tour of Great Britain. This experience sparked a passion for travel that has taken me from the rocky coasts of western Canada to the sandy beaches of southeast Asia and several destinations in-between – 23 countries and counting!
I am a lifelong learner with degrees in both Media Arts & Animation and Nursing. I spent 12 wonderful years as a Registered Nurse where I had the opportunity to nurture and care for patients at hospitals in Oklahoma and Illinois. I’ve continued my education with the Joy of Travel partner training programs, and have earned credentials as a Globus Tour Expert, Riviera Cruise Specialist, Avalon Waterways Specialist, Viking, CIE Expert, and AMA Waterways Specialist.
Whether relaxing ocean front at a 5-star resort in Bali (been there) or backpacking adventurously from town to town across Spain (done that), I absolutely LOVE travel of all types! I hope to use my experience and partnerships with a wide variety of travel providers to help you and your family design a dream vacation that fits your budget and adventure level.
