Chicago, Illinois Travel Agent
My Experience & Background
From the days when I worked in my parent’s travel agency, I always knew travel was going to be my world. After graduating college, I worked in corporate sales at United Airlines, where I handled high profile corporate and TMC (travel management company) accounts, and then spent five years at Royal Caribbean International.
In 2015, I decided I wanted to come back to working directly with clients and joined Protravel International with the goal of delivering hyper-client-focused travel services to entertainment, sports and other businesses, and luxury travelers. That is the goal I keep front and center as I do everything possible to customize and personalize every trip I plan.
My experience has taught me that there are opportunities to travel better and have access to deeper experiences than most people are aware of. For both my leisure and business clients, my goal is to elevate the quality of travel, wherever they are going.
Thanks to being a part of Protravel International, I provide my clients with access to special VIP treatment, complimentary amenities at top hotels around the world such as free breakfast, Wi-Fi and when available, upgraded rooms, and advantageous pricing and upgrades with the airlines for front of plane and full-fare coach travelers as well as priority access to airline representatives when needed.
Protravel International is unique in the travel industry, combining the upscale personalized service of a boutique agency with multi-billions in buying power of our parent company, Travel Leaders Group. For over 30 years, Protravel has established itself as a client-focused, internationally-renowned travel management company.
I have always networked with my peers, which means I stay on top of my game in the industry. I served as the Board Manager for the New York City chapter of Young Travel Professionals. Having recently moved to Chicago, I am now getting involved in Chicago Young Travel Professionals.
I also am very big on using technology in ways that help me provide more personal service. For example, each time you travel with me, I know more about you liked and didn’t like. Understanding your preferences allows me to better serve you. For example, if I know you loved your last cruise on a particular line, I can alert you when I see a great deal on that line.
I like to think that thanks to my dual focus on helping clients save money and elevating their travel experiences, my clients are traveling better for entrusting their travel plans to me.
I specialize in Cruise, Corporate, Entertainment, Sports Team Travel and Luxury Leisure.

The Moroccan culture is so rich and the people were so warm and friendly that this is a destination that you need to come back to again and again. There are so many things to experience; the more I learn, the more I want to know.
