I love helping families and groups explore new places and experience different cultures!
As a child, I had the unique opportunity to travel around my native country of Peru with my parents. They gave me the chance to help them with the preparations for our trips, including making arrangements and choosing the destinations. Our favorite trips were the ones where we ended up at destinations that weren't even located on the map. Through these experiences, I fell in love with traveling and I knew I had to make it a significant part of my life.
Now, as a parent with young children, I realize even more how it important it is for families to travel and make memories together. Prior to having children, I worked for several corporations and my responsibilities included making travel arrangements for students and employees. My professional background and natural love of travel have provided me with the right tools necessary to become a successful travel agent.
I specialize in family vacations, specifically working with families who have young children. My own children are 4 and 7 years old, so I understand the challenges and rewards of planning an exciting vacation with little ones. I love to book:
I also am a Certified Sandals Resort specialist, and I can help couples plan a romantic getaway to a tropical island that they will remember for a lifetime.
"Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer." Planning a vacation is an investment, but it's well worth the time and effort. By providing your family with an opportunity to see a new place and learn about a different culture, you are giving them a gift that will stay with them for life.
