I have been a travel counselor since 1981. When I began my career in travel, you were required by the state to take and pass a test to become a "travel agent".  Unfortunately that requirement no longer exists. 

 The travel industry has changed over the decades and so have I. I am now an “Accredited Cruise Counselor", certified by Cruise Line Industry of America (CLIA) also not a requirement and completed the individual cruise lines training courses for: Cunard, *Cunard Commodore*, Princess Cruises, *Princess Commodore*, Royal Caribbean, *University of WOW*, Celebrity Cruises *Certified Cruise Specialist*, Holland America, *HAL Academy*, Disney, *Disney College of Knowledge*and Carnival, *Carnival Cruise Specialist* . It is something I have done personally to be up-to-date and to KEEP UP with the changes in the leisure travel industry. It's a juggling act that I thrive on!

 In 1981, a cruise vacation was an ultra luxury that only a select few could afford.  Today a cruise is more affordable then ever! Cruise fares have not increased with inflation over the years; they remain similar today to what they were back in 1981.   What has changed is the number of cruise line choices available, with each offering more ships and more cabins then ever before. The services of a highly-trained and experienced travel counselor like me are needed now more than ever. 

 I take pride in my credentials but take even more pride in my ability to listen to my clients’ needs and match them with the cruise that best fits them. I apply my training and over twenty- five years of experience to customize your vacation.  

 You can rely on me and Clearwater Cruises to make your vacation planning a fun experience and a success from start to finish.  Don't you deserve the best of the best?  Sure you do!!

 Ask me about my transatlantic cruise aboard Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2 or my travels to Alaska, Bermuda, Hawaii, or destinations in Europe like Germany and the Benelux countries if you're thinking of these places for your vacation. Or perhaps the tropical Caribbean islands are calling your name – I’ve been to there more times that I can count and can help you decide where you want to go! If you’re thinking of the Mediterranean, I’ve been there too and even did a one-week cruise of the Greek Isles on a self-captained sailboat!! 

 Whether you’re planning your own vacation or a family and friends group escape, or incentive cruise or tour for your company, I’m here for you - with knowledge accumulated from my personal travel adventures coupled with many years of being in the travel business. I've been "married" to the travel field almost as long as I've been married to my husband of 30+ years (and counting).  So whether you like highly active adventures or relaxed and leisurely or upscale luxury -- we'll plan the perfect vacation for you, your family and friends.

Call me today so we can discuss what YOU
are looking to discover and do on your next vacation. 
Its never too soon to start planning!
