La Jolla, California Travel Agent
Luxury Travel Agent
I was born in England of an American father and British mother and began my travel life due to my father being in the Air force. We lived in Spain and England and many places in the USA with my parents final retirement being on Cape Cod. While living in England as an adult I worked on the cross channel ferries from Dover to Zeebrugge, Belgium. From this I got the itch to stay in the travel business and to take cruises. I returned home to Cape Cod and then Boston where I took travel agent training at Garber Travel School, Newton MA. My first job in the industry was with a Tour operator out of Boston called International Weekends. I was a ground operator guide for them in Copenhagen and Oslo for a summer season. I have travelled exstensively throughout Britain and Europe over the years. In 1978 I moved to California where I started my career as a travel consultant, earned my CTC accreditation(Certified Travel Consultant) and managed a travel agency in San Diego. I have over 35yrs experience in all aspects of the travel business. I have built my business through past clients and their referrals. I furthered my knowledge of the world with travel to many countries in Asia, Africa, India, Latin America, Australia, the So. Pacific, and the Caribbean and have sailed on most of the major cruise lines. I have also snow skied throughout the US, Canada, and Europe so am familiar with ski resorts. And have experienced all 4 major islands of Hawaii and their resort hotels numerous times. My greatest passion in life is TRAVEL. I continue to educate myself and enjoy sharing my knowledge each time with clients to plan a rewarding, memorable trip.
