Eau Claire, WI

Travel Specialist - Eau Claire WI

I grew up in rural Wisconsin, and I’m still amazed at all the places I’ve been! I’m an avid international traveler, and being a travel agent is a dream come true for me!

I’ve been an agent for over 30 years now, and every day is equally exciting and inspirational. I originally focused on corporate trips for the first 15 years of my career, but I then switched to leisure travel for families, couples, and groups.

I work with people who have never traveled before along with experienced world travelers, and I always give each itinerary my full attention. I want you to have an exceptional time on your vacation, and I’ll help you personalize your trip in exciting and unexpected ways!Some of my most common bookings include:

  • Family vacations
  • Honeymoons
  • Group travel
  • Ocean cruises
  • River cruises
  • Multi-destination travel
  • Escorted tours
  • And more!

I book everywhere from Mexico to Europe, the Caribbean Islands, Alaska, and beyond. I also have experience with Disney’s parks and cruises, and I know how to make Disney’s parks more accommodating than ever!

Cruises are another favorite of mine, and I love helping my clients enjoy wonderful river and ocean cruises throughout the world. I’ll find you the best cruise lines and routes so you can enjoy the greatest activities and see all your desired sights without rushing. Cruises are such a great way to travel and see the world, and I’ll help you get the most out of the experience anywhere you go!

Whether you want to travel from Paris to Poland by train or explore the rugged nature of Alaska, I’ll make sure your vacation is better than your dreams. I know how to pace an itinerary so you have equal time for relaxation and adventure, and I'll research your destination so you’ll always have something new to enjoy during your trip.

Traveling is my greatest passion in life, and I’m so excited to start booking your dream vacation to

Would do again in a heartbeat.
Very quick responses to all of our inquiries / questions. All aspects went very smoothly. Usually book our trips on our own, but this experience has altered that thinking.
