I have loved Mickey Mouse and all things Disney for as long as I can remember! I took my first trip to Disney World when I was 7 years old. It was absolutely magical! We stayed at the Polynesian Resort. I will never forget it.
My next trip to Disney World was with my husband Matt. It’s a funny story about how that trip came about. Matt came home from work one day and mentioned going on vacation. I had our complete Disney trip planned and booked by the very next day! Thus began Matt’s love of Disney World. We have since had many wonderful vacations to Disney World with our kids, Nick and Holly. I enjoy planning our trips so much! I start planning the next trip as we’re on our way to the airport leaving Disney World. It would be my pleasure to plan your trips as well!
I would also like to mention that my family and I take an annual trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. Through the years we have come across lots of fun, memorable things to do there too.
Have a magical day!

I have enjoyed a career of over 30 years, working in the travel industry. I have had the excitement of experiencing many destinations. I must say though, my favorites would be the beautiful country of Italy and then for some fun and relaxation in the sun, the Caribbean island of Aruba. As I move forward, my role here at Skyline Travel is to support our knowledgeable team of travel advisers. We look forward to hearing from you.

With over 20 years of experience I am a certified specialist in destinations around the globe, including Aruba, Grand Cayman, St. Lucia, Ireland, Scotland, Portugal.
Whether it’s arranging meetings/groups itineraries for business travelers or working out the logistics for a family vacation, I enjoy planning itineraries for corporate travelers as well as leisure clients.
The reason that I started in travel is that I truly believe that when you travel, you see the world in whole new ways. I wholeheartedly believe that travel is not about money but about courage. Therefore, my ideal clients are courageous. They are willing to break out of their comfort zones and try something new. They realize that you do not have to spend a lot of money to have unbelievable experiences.

I was born in Minnesota where I grew up loving the cold outdoors and spending time in the woods skiing and hiking. In college I pursued a degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, while still enjoying the outdoors. I lived in Alaska while working for the salmon industry and am still in awe of Alaska’s beauty. I moved to Chicago to pursue my Masters degree and married my husband.
I am a scientist by education, and in my former life taught high school science and was also employed at the Shedd Aquarium. After I had my son, I decided to stay at home with my growing family while doing contract work for various museums. As my children grew older, I wanted to do something outside the home and that is when Patti and Brian asked if I wanted to join them at Skyline. I have always had the travel bug and I love spending time in new places discovering new things.
As I evolve in the travel industry my love for Europe and places afar have grown. While I love planning getaways to warm Caribbean destinations, I am driven by the details involved in a complex adventure overseas. I have a passion for putting trips together that are seamless and stress free. A client may dream of an Italian family vacation – but not realize the complexities of securing tours well in advance and the difficulties of finding rooms that accommodate families. I work very hard to make sure my clients have itineraries that take care of them from the time they get to the airport until they return home. I spend time researching and cultivating relationships with suppliers to find the most reputable hotels, tour guides, restaurants and transportation to meet the needs of my clients. I understand that vacations are very expensive and I take the responsibility of planning the best vacation I can very seriously for each of my clients. The best part of my job is hearing back from a happy client and they tell me that their trip was stress-free and seamless.
I have been in the travel industry since 1989 when I fell in love with two places where creativity meets ingenuity – Italy and Walt Disney World.
Whether it’s Venice, Rome or Florence, history comes alive as you explore where Romans walked and artists made their masterpieces. Meanwhile, Disney magic awakens the kid in all of us as we experience cutting edge technologies that can shape the future. Both places, with their unique cultures, has influenced my desire to provide clients with “Dream come true” travel experiences. Making friends while creating magical vacations is the best of all worlds.
Travel bring the world to you. Let me help you find your next dream destination.
