A Lifetime of Travel


I'm pretty sure my first words were 'Big Ben', and I think I knew how to make crêpes before I knew how to make toast. I developed a special interest in Europe and the United Kingdom, and grew up watching “Passport to Europe with Samantha Brown” every Saturday morning, instead of normal cartoons.

I graduated from Ball State University in 2015 with my bachelor’s degree feeling excited and proud, and wanting to travel more. But how could I follow my dreams of traveling, while make a living doing it? What career existed that would perfectly fit my detail-oriented, type A personality, but would give me license to immerse myself in my love for travel?

After a lot of research, I decided that becoming a Travel Consultant was the right choice for me. Now, I cannot imagine having any other career. Every day I get to create itineraries for my clients that make their travel dreams come true. I am passionate about what I do because I know the feeling of standing in front of the Colosseum and seeing what you’ve only seen on TV come to life. I know the feeling of having my toes in the sand, feeling your worries melt away. I know the feeling of walking through the vineyards and rolling hills of Tuscany, sipping on Chianti. I work every day to make sure my clients can have these unique experiences, too.  

Another kind of travel I am passionate about is river cruising. River cruising combines the relaxation that comes with cruising with the adventure of touring new places and sites. With European river cruising, you could start in Budapest, and see Bratislava, Vienna, and Dürnstein without ever having to unpack, repack, and switch hotels. Tour castles, cathedrals, and historic sites, then hop back on your ship to continue cruising along the Danube. River cruising can be efficient, relaxing, and a truly rewarding experience.

Now that you have dreams of castles, cobbled streets, fine wine, and river cruising in your head, it might be time to let me help you with your upcoming travels. I can give you a one-on-one consultation and match your unique interests, needs, and desires with an itinerary that will fit you perfectly. Then, once you’ve booked, I will be there every step of the way to guide you through the preparation process. From packing lists, to travel documents, to passport applications, I can provide the assistance you need to make the process go smoothly. I think about these details so you don’t have to, and the only thing you have to worry about is what drink to order on the plane while you’re on the way to your destination!

Best trip ever!
Jessica was great to work with. Easy to get in touch with, and very attentive to emails and questions we had during the planning process. Jessica helped put together a trip for a group of 8, and she totally nailed it. You know that it's hard to keep 8 people happy for 10 days, but throughout the whole trip every person kept saying "Jessica did such an amazing job!". The apartments she booked for us were great locations, and we very comfortable. She had exciting recommendations for each town we were in, we really felt like we got to see a lot of Scotland in our trip. I will definitely be contacting Jessica when it's time to book our next vacation!

Scotland and the bucket list of fun!
I am a fairly well traveled individual and have always booked holiday excursions on my own. But in celebration of my 40th, I decided to pass the planning of details off to someone else who could adequately organize everything for me. I chose Jessica because of her personal travel experiences in Scotland and I am so glad I did.

Jessica really listened to the things that were most important to me and my traveling partner and offered a solid itinerary on first run. I requested a few adjustments and she came back with a second draft that met our financial needs and activity preferences.

Jessica offered great communication and prior to the start of our trip, had a detailed packet sent to me of information, tickets, and "in case of emergency" numbers and contacts. We did have one hiccup on the trip that was beyond hers or our control. So having the needed contact information was so very helpful.

Overall, I would absolutely use Jessica again.
