30 years of honeymoons, family vacations & cruises

A veteran of the travel industry, I have been helping vacationers in a variety of capacities for over three decades. In fact over the years I've learned many lessons in my time working as:

  • a travel consultant
  • a group travel manager
  • an event planner
  • an airline manager
  • an instructor and director at the esteemed Illinois Travel Training Academy

I believe that my well rounded background in the travel industry make me an excellent resource for aspiring travelers with specific visions for their dream vacations.

I also am eager to provide guidance for those less certain about where they want to go and what they want to do when they get there. This flexibility has resulted in the return of several loyal clients. In fact, I am now planning honeymoons for the children of clients for whom I booked honeymoons over 3 decades ago!

Often clients use stories of my past experiences as inspiration for their own trips. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Caribbean and have always enjoyed seeing history come to life while visiting a variety of landmarks. I enjoy reliving these experiences and take even greater satisfaction in hearing about my client's travel adventures when they return home.

In addition to traveling the world, I make it a point of pursuing a variety of educational
opportunities. The travel industry is always changing and I certainly do not want to be left behind. Thus, I am constantly working to gain certification in a variety of in-demand areas.

Currently, I am a CTA; Certified Travel Advisor, Certified Master Cruise Counselor with the Cruise Line International Association, A Royal Caribbean Expert Plus for the University of WOW, a Princess Academy Commodore, an Ocean Cruise and River Cruise Expert, A Sandals Certified Specialist and  Master Agent for AMR Resorts are some of my certifications.

The knowledge gained from the pursuit of these and other certifications has allowed me to better serve my beloved clients.

From studying for new certifications, to crafting travel manuals to exploring the world, I am constantly engaged in one travel-oriented endeavor or another. Not only do I feel that these experiences make me a better source of knowledge for my clients, I am truly passionate about anything and everything to do with vacation planning.

I am proud to have helped so many amazing individuals plan honeymoons, cruise and family vacations and reunions.

Weather has caused so many delays and flight disrupts this year. I was glad who were able to enjoy a few more summer days before returning to the frigid cold. Thank you for your kind words.

Perfect Italy Vacation
Deb was wonderful to work with. She listened to what we were looking for and gave us a ton of options to choose from. She responded extremely quickly and we did everything over email which made it super easy.

Everything was arranged perfectly. We took trains and private drivers to different areas and had no issues with transportation or reservations. Overall, we are very satisfied with the trip!

A trip of a lifetime!
Deb was as great as they come! I had never worked with a travel agent before as I though I could do it all myself. She helped she hours and hours off of our planning. We went from southern italy all the way up to Venice and every train and car and plane was all planned out. The hotels were scheduled and all we really had to do was show up and enjoy Christmas in Italy with my family. Deb was one of the greatest gifts this Christmas :)

Last minute, quick & relaxing getaway
We continuously come back to Deb when we get bit by a travel bug. Planning a trip for a family can be overwhelming, but each time I send her a bullet point list of our wishes, depending on if it’s an adult trip or kids trip, flight preferences and accommodation specifics. She is quick to provide options and details, accommodating all of our requests. It sure makes going on Vacations easy, which is what our busy family needs. In May I emailed her only 2 weeks out from wanting to go on an adult’s only trip and the same day we had it booked (and she found a sale!) Thank you, Deb!
