Travel has always been a big part of my life. As the youngest of six kids, we all hopped in our parent’s Station Wagon saw the United States from the back seat. Our vacations were mostly spent visiting my grandma and cousins in Florida. We spent every summer water skiing, swimming, fishing, reminiscing at family reunions, and touring Disney World. This fostered a great love for the water and playing in the sun that I still carry with me today.

I have been married for 28 plus years and have raised three wonderful kids. Years ago, for my honeymoon, my husband and I enjoyed the sparkling blue water and white sandy beaches of the Bahamas. We had so much fun and look forward to returning to the Caribbean again to celebrate our

30th wedding anniversary. Because I have always put family first, I have been able to travel, but mostly within the United States.  I have traveled to twenty of the fifty United States and some of my fondest memories have come from our adventures away from home. From the beaches in Destin, Florida, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to the West Coast of Coronado Island, California; from the wild parades of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, to all the sights in New York, I have been very fortunate to get to experience so many beautiful places right here in America. As a parent, I will never forget the ultimate feeling of satisfaction when we arrived at the Magic Kingdom with my children. My daughter gazed up at Cinderella’s Castle and said, “It is even more beautiful than I ever dreamed of!” That’s what it is all about.

In the past, I have planned reunions for many different high schools in the Houston area, coordinated various corporate events, planned group outings, and facilitated team-building activities for companies from all around the world. This past year, I helped my daughter and my fabulous son-in-law plan an incredible 8-event wedding extravaganza here in Houston, as well as their honeymoon to the Best All-Inclusive Resort in the World by the 2016 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards, Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort in Cancun.   This year, I will gain an incredible daughter-in-law. I am looking forward to assisting her plan all the events! My family is what I am most proud of.  My children have visited multiple continents and I dream about many future trips exploring the world with them as their families grow.

I am so excited to be a part of the Modern Vacations and Modern Destination Weddings Family.  I am looking forward to fulfilling many dreams by assisting couples in the planning of their weddings and planning dream vacations for others.

Now I am looking forward to spending more time traveling and seeing the world!
