  Meet the Owner  

In 2006, I boarded Royal Caribbean’s Splendour of the Seas in Galveston, TX, opening new horizons and leading me towards a new career.  I experienced a level of service that was unparalleled in the organizations for which I had worked.  Even though I had been associated with leading brands in their segments, such as The Little Nell Hotel in Aspen and McCormick and Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants, the team on that first cruise impressed me with their service, commitment, drive, and individual life stories.

That experience onboard combined organically with my amateur-tech-geek-newshound-bargain-hunter hobbies, culminating in the opening of my Dream Vacations Agency and starting my blog, Your Travel Dime.

My clients benefit from the lesson I learned the hard way:  Value is not just about price.  Value is the relationship between cost and experience.  A disappointing or unsatisfactory experience is never a value at any price point.   


My Clients Receive

  • Personal Service.  We’ll start with a conversation about you and the value you want.
  • Best Price and Exclusive Offers:  You get the best price and every offer available from the supplier and additional, exclusive offers (onboard credit, spa treatments, etc.) only available through Dream Vacations.
  • Global Connections.  As part of World Travel Holdings, I am part of a network of more than 1,200 agencies that collaborate.  I work with suppliers in every region of the globe.
  • Continued Education.  Hours each week spent in industry training.
  • Field Research.  Experiencing product from suppliers as a consumer to determine value.
  • Convenience.  Available by phone or through email, text and Facebook Messenger, online bookings with major cruise lines 24/7.
My Philosophy

Travel is not just about escape; it is learning, seeing, or experiencing something different on every trip that makes one better.  Leisure travel is all about coming back fresh, with a new set of eyes to revisit our everyday routine, activities and work.  It makes one both a better person and a better employee or manager.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to get the most value out of your Dream Vacation, reunion, wedding, graduation, honeymoon or corporate/incentive travel!
