What type of travel are you passionate about planning? I really enjoy planning international adventure travel and honeymoons! Each trip is so unique, and you can build each experience to cater to the personalities of the couple or family.
Do you plan Disney? Yes! I worked at all of the Disney World parks when I was in college, so I am very familiar with the brand.
Pro-Travel Trip: I always make copies of my important documents (passport, Covid Test Results, etc.) I carry one copy in my carry-on and one copy in my checked luggage. My mindset is, if I forget something else, I can buy it when I get to my destination!
Things I Never Forget to Pack: Foldable beach bag, lip balm & headphones (the old school ones for the plane!) Some airlines charge you for them, so I always make sure to carry my own, plus they are more comfortable. And lastly, a reusable water bottle!

How many years have you been involved with Travel? Wow, over 10 years!! Time flies when you are having fun! I started working in a luxury hotel when I was in college, studied abroad in Italy for my entire freshman year, spent a summer in Switzerland for a hospitality course and then moved to London once I graduated with my Bachelors from Florida State University. After I lived in London, I pursued my MBA and traveled the world and moved to places like Alaska, Rhode Island, South Carolina and more. I worked in operations for some high-level resorts, which makes me incredibly particular for my travel clients!
Why do you love travel? Traveling is all about connecting with people in ways that you have never connected before. You connect with their food and their culture. Traveling is not just about seeing a new place, it is about learning and appreciating different ways of life. Travel builds creativity, opens your mind and pushes you out of your comfort zone.

Have you been to every Sandals and Beaches Resort? Yes: I actually worked with Sandals and Beaches resorts for three years, and it is still one of my favorite brands! It is a genuinely all-inclusive, five-star luxury product. I truly believe Sandals and Beaches is one of the best options on the market for travel; especially for honeymooners!

Favorite Sandals or Beaches? Sandals Royal Barbados: I personally LOVE the fact that you have two properties right next to each other because it doubles your choices for restaurants! I also really enjoy the rooftop bar and pool, bowling alley, donut shop and tiki bar right on the limestone, powder-white beach!

My Babymoon 
St Lucia. We stayed at Sandals Regency La Toc - Ask about us about upgrading helicopter transfers. 

Where did you honeymoon? Jamaica & Antigua: My husband and I honeymooned in Jamaica! We were actually married in the Florida Keys, took a quick 45 minute flight to Jamaica and went to Sandals Montego Bay. We had 5-star treatment all the way with Club Mobay fast-track, BMW transfers, luxury accommodations and amazing food! Our favorite places to hang out were the private white beach and the floating bar! We loved it so much, we took a second honeymoon to Sandals Antigua the following November.

Favorite Travel Destination: Morocco: Morocco is by far one of my favorite destinations for travel. I have been to over 30 countries and this location is just so incredibly unique. We visited Marrakesh and Taghazout. I hiked to a village in the mountains and had homemade tajine with a Moroccan family. I visited a hammam spa, rode camels, held monkeys in the town square and took surf lessons with the locals. I love adventure, and this one takes the cake!
