Encino, California Travel Agent
Luxury Travel Agent
My passion for both travel and making others travel dreams a possibility started in Little Tokyo 38 years ago when I was fortunate enough to obtain my first travel agent position. I trained for three years on the job but continued learning daily doing research for my clients, interacting with vendors and hoteliers and my own personal travel, all of which helped me constantly acquire more knowledge.
My personal travel has allowed me to visit and familiarize myself with many parts of the globe, including South and Central America, a great deal of Europe (I am fluent in English, Spanish and conversational in a few other languages), Africa (Dubai and two amazing safaris) Asia including Singapore and multiple trips to Japan, I have traveled extensively via air, sea (a myriad of cruises) and land (rail and road trips).
I have never lost the excitement I have for creating travel experiences for my clients including, honeymoons, anniversary trips, family and class reunions and adventure travel, I work with people of all budgets from economy backpackers to people of more affluent means. Many of my clients are second-generation travelers, as their parents entrusted me with their travel for many years, and in some cases, decades.
