Westbury, New York Travel Agent
Luxury Advisor Who Loves Adventure and Wildlife
As much as I love to travel, I equally enjoy immersing myself in the process of creating and personalizing trips for my clients. A planner and organizer by nature, I spent the earlier part of my career in financial planning and operations within the technology industry. Becoming a Travel Advisor was a natural fit for me as I decided to follow my passion and make it my career.

I pride myself on the personal attention and attention to detail I provide. I truly love what I do and I would love to help you plan your next vacation!

Best Trip Ever - Even During a Pandemic!
What an incredible vacation! From the moment we decided we were going to travel Shawn Goldberg was amazing, attentive and beyond patient! Once we arrived at The Grace Bay Resort we were treated like royalty! From our upgrade to a beautiful 3 bedroom villa overlooking the water to treats delivered to our room daily! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, because of you, we were able to share an incredible week as a family amidst the craziness of the times. Most importantly feeling safe!
