My passion for travel started at a very young age when I first moved from New York City to Minnesota. At age twelve, I lived in Poitiers, France for a year, being immersed in the culture and attended a regular French school when I first arrived and finished in a class for foreign students, where I met kids from all over of the world. During that year, I traveled to different parts of France, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.
Travel provides an amazing opportunity to learn and as an educator, I truly believe in continuing my education. As such, I regularly attend and participate in many international and domestic trade shows, seminars and meetings which better enables me to keep up on the latest trends. Having been a member of several panel discussions, I have been able to provide insight on destinations, travel styles and how to work with a travel professional. Connecting and re-connecting with tour operators, hoteliers, trade organizations and other travel suppliers and building these relationships and partnerships with the locals, allow me to create more personalized experiences, incorporating the traditions of these destinations.

**I am currently only working on vacations to Disney destinations or the Universal Orlando resort**
I love to travel! I always have several personal vacations lined up and love to work with others to craft the vacation that they fantasize about. I'm a details girl, and there won't be a 't' uncrossed on any vacation that I put together. I love to make sure that all of the planning is done before you arrive at the destination so you only need to pack your bags and enjoy yourself! I'm a mom, so family travel and multi-generational trips are my favorite, but adult-only getaways and honeymoons are super fun for me to work on as well. No matter where I am, smartphone in hand, I'm always available for my clients!
Travel is my passion!
I’ve been traveling all of my life and look forward to sharing my love of travel with you, to help make your travel dreams come true.
I grew up in Southern California, where I became a certified travel agent in 1987 before moving to Germany a few years later. Not only am I fluent in English and German, but I am also fluent in Travel. Living in Europe has given me the opportunity to visit many wonderful places and experience them first-hand, including Germany, Italy, France, Austria, and the UK … along with many other countries around the world, soaking up their culture as much as possible.
I’d love to share my passion for travel with you, along with my 30+ years of experience in the travel industry. My work is detail oriented to help create experiences designed especially for you. Together we can plan your dream vacation, that cruise of a lifetime, or even just a short weekend getaway.
Beyond the Moon Travel ... an unforgettable Journey!
Looking forward to hearing from you, Susanne

In our spare time, my husband, now retired from the US Air Force, and I enjoy our three grandsons and traveling to new and unique destinations.

Travel today is more complicated than ever. Between new entry protocols, testing and quarantine requirements, last-minute schedule changes, extreme weather events, and geopolitical tensions, it's my job to stay on top of everything so that my clients are able to travel safely and with minimal hassles. We take care of our clients before, during, and after each trip, all the while delivering authentic, destination-immersive travel experiences. I've been to more than sixty countries and have visited every continent--including Antarctica--so I'd love to plan your bucket list adventure, but keep in mind that I can also add tremendous value to a simple air and hotel booking or cruise vacation. The clients who gravitate toward me tend to be travelers, not tourists. If that sounds like a good fit for you, I'd love to talk to you about being your advocate when you travel.

It is our unparalleled commitment to promote profound adventures, inviting you to truly engage with the land and the people of each destination that you visit and make available to you, the very best in the world of travel.
