My Travel Specialties

Off The Beaten Path

Some of my favorite destinations are cold weather locations. These trips provide exceptional scenery far beyond what a picture can show.

Italy: A Custom Tour

I’m a firm believer that anyone can experience the wonders of Europe. With a custom guided vacation, you’ll never have to miss out on fun for the whole family.

Adventures Down Under
Debi is always friendly and upbeat. Based on her experience, no matter my destination, she knows someone who has been there and will gladly find out more information to help make each and every vacation "a once in a lifetime journey"! On a recent trip to Australia, I decided to climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge, based in-part on Debi's advice. It was spectacular and just one of many highlights.
Debi knows my interests and has sent me invitations to travel presentations at the agency, including river cruising and Cuba. I am most appreciative of these chances to learn of new adventures. A river cruise is planned for late 2016 and Cuba is on my bucket list.

My dream vacation to Italy
Debi is filled with knowledge on where to go, what to do, what to avoid and how to maximize your time while away. From start to finish she guided us every step to navigate the myriad of choices until we had exactly what we wanted. She is cheerful, helpful and an amazing resource. Don't plan a vacation without talking with Debi first.
