I have been to every continent, and have visited more than fifty countries along with the other half of Huckleberry Travel. Along the way, we have camped in a tent in Antarctica, cruised through the fjords of Norway and ridden elephants on safari in Zimbabwe. We have climbed the Great Wall of China, stood on the rim of a volcano at sunrise, and eaten our way through the best barbecue restaurants in Kansas City. Our love of travel and passion for once-in-a-lifetime experiences have led us here: to help others have a fantastic time seeing the world.
I live and breathe the travel industry! I love talking to clients and matching clients up with the right vacation -On land or by Sea. I listen and carefully hand craft vacations, matching expectations with budget. I do the research which saves clients tons of time and money. I spend a lot of time and money to go out and see the product, taste the food, experience the service so I can make solid recommendations and shape forever memories. I do not work in a call center. I'm a Travel Advisor - not just an order taker. Please know this research & advice takes time - I provide Value.
Price is what you pay- Value is what you get.
I lived in Nepal for 18 years operating tours, treks and expeditions throughout South Asia and Tibet. Our specialties have expanded to include most of the rest of the world with Cuba being the hottest destination lately.
I have been a travel professional since 1996. Named a Signature Travel Select Expert, my business, and only business is your travel. Personal attention to my clients is the key. Through continuing education about destinations, cruise lines, resort and hotels I am able to suggest the best plans for your vacation.

“Let Me Tell You Where to Go.”
I have been in the travel industry for 35 years. In that time, I’ve become more than just a consultant to my clients. I’m their partner, helping them not only plan the perfect trip but also helping them save money, adding value and benefits and putting their interests first, and taking care of all those little details that can overwhelm.
After owning my own small agency, I moved to Plaza Travel in 1995 and made a name specializing in customized group bookings for corporate meetings, using my experience in Sales and Catering in the hospitality industry to coordinate the various demands of those accounts. Along the way, I developed expertise in entertainment travel and cutting-edge agency technology.
I was born in Bogota, Colombia, but have lived in the U.S. since age 1. I have two sons in medical school.
I am the Vice President for SoCal ASTA
“I’m very excited to sit on the board with ASTA and look forward to making a difference for our industry in the future,” “Let’s change the world one traveler at a time.”
I am a retired insurance consultant and I am also disabled. This means that I have the time and desire to plan your luxury vacation. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, but I specialize in working with the disabled and the mature. Let's work together to make your vacation dreams a reality.
