I began my passion working in the travel industry in 1989 and after completing my first year in the ABWA-KU MBA Essentials program in 2009, I decided to utilize my experience and knowledge to start my own full service travel agency in 2010 with additional support and help through the Small Business Development Center and support from family and friends.

Biggest Challenges

Being a single mother balancing work and raising my son since 2000. As a business owner I continue to think of innovative ideas to grow my business and build relationships.

Shared Lesson

The value of Listening. How well we listen effectively will greatly influence our relationship and our ability to succeed. Believe in your dreams, have faith and this will help you stay in peace no matter what happens.

Secret to My Success

Joining the American Business Women’s Association and following the mission statement. ABWA has given me the confidence and the connections to achieve my dreams. 


My son Joe is currently working on a second major at the University of South Florida.
