About Me

I fell in love with Walt Disney World on that first magical trip with my parents in the 1980s. Our vacation was filled with special moments with my Dad, family fun in a way we'd never quite experienced before, and a whole host of  memories I still carry with me. I was immediately hooked! Now, my husband and I love making those same memories every year with our own kids. Disney is a frequent topic of conversation at our dinner table, and we're always crafting a plan for what we'll do on our next trip.

Originally from New York, I have recently moved to Ankeny, Iowa after 15 years in San Antonio, Texas, with my husband and two children, and our cockapoo, Hayes. When we aren't at a Disney Destination or cruising, you'll find us on a road trip, heading to our next National Park!

My focus is both on planning the perfect vacation specifically for your family and your needs, and taking the stress out of the process for you. Tailored to your budget and your family's tastes, I can take care of it all - from making your dining and Fastpass+ reservations to providing a detailed, personalized itinerary and everything in between. My recommendations are based on having personally stayed at all but one of Disney's resorts and having eaten at every restaurant in both the parks and the resort.

With extensive experience planning trips for military families, families with special needs, large groups, families with wide age ranges, couple's getaways and girl's weekends, I plan each trip with the same attention to detail and eye for magical memories as I do for my own family.

I am a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, and have continued my Disney education both online and in trainings at Walt Disney World, Disneyland and with Disney Cruise Line.

I am also an Accredited Cruise Counselor with CLIA, the Cruise Lines International Association and am pursuing the next level of certification with them, which also includes training and hands on experience with all of the major cruise lines.

 I'm fortunate to work for a wonderful agency, Magical Travel. Magical Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, and has been a part of the program since it's inception in 2004.
