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 am a travel advisor who is also a travel enthusiast. So designing interesting itineraries for my clients never seems like work.
In fact, I actually get a lot of enjoyment from creating special trips and then imagining the enjoyment that my clients will get out of their personalized journeys.
I have been in the travel industry for over 16 years and am now the Director of New Agent Training in the agency I work for, Ticket to Travel and am an ASTA Verified Travel Advisor. Over the years, I have worked with countless clients, including one of my biggest, The Real Estate Guys, who have a nationally syndicated radio program. It is my responsibility to put together their annual week-long seminar at sea, which is a challenging task that includes taking care of all of the event planning logistics.
Fortunately, I'm not afraid of challenges or taking on an itinerary that will require extra work. For example, I also recently helped four couples who wanted me to design a custom trip to Europe for them. They wanted to go by train to:
• Germany for Oktoberfest
It was a very complex itinerary that required great attention to detail and took a lot of time to put together. In the end, my clients were very happy that they didn't have to do all of this hard work themselves.
Besides designing custom trips, the other areas in which I excel include:
• Booking cruises – both ocean and river
• Producing seminars at seas
• Group travel
When you book with me, you are getting an agent who will go above and beyond to ensure that your vacation is hassle free. I have a reputation for my outstanding attention to detail and am always available to my clients -- even on nights and during the weekends.
I am also a world traveler who has been to a number of destinations, including but not limited to many countries in Europe, New Zealand, Tahiti and numerous Caribbean Islands. I have also been on many cruises over the years. The information that I've learned during my
I am an overachiever and a servant leader. I left the Corporate World where I worked as a Talent Acquisition Manager right out of college for 7 years, to follow my heart and passion and make a difference in the travel industry. I have never looked back. I now own my own home-based travel agency and love what I do. I love building relationships with the suppliers and my clients and assisting my valued clients to travel wise and enjoy life. Allow me to make your dream trip come true!

Do you like being heard when you tell someone what you want on a vacation? Do you want to give an agent a budget and not have to worry about them going over it? Well, then I am your agent. We don't cookie cutter our vacations. I have a questionnaire asking what you want, what you don't want, what do you expect your trip to be. I need to know these things to find the right vacation for you. Too many agents are only order takers and not dream makers. You save a long time for your trip - let me make it everything you have your heart set on. I am also a Verified Travel Advisor (VTA) with ASTA and have completed legal and ethics courses.

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
