My career had already afforded me extensive travel vacation opportunities to far off destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Holland, Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, England, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and many islands in the Caribbean. Not to mention Alaska and Hawaii. It seemed that I was already a travel expert and found myself offering advice to my financial clients.
Life was trying to tell me something. “ Judy you love travel, you like to talk about travel, you are detail oriented, it’s time to starting helping folks with another type of investment; dream vacations!” I listened. Retiring from financial services in 2005 I embarked on a new journey. The mild mannered funds specialist from Monument Colorado had arrived at her true calling: travel professional for Cruise Holidays. It’s been 10 wonderful years, 25 plus cruises, and countless land vacations and resorts since that fateful day.
Someone once asked me “What’s Your Dream Vacation?” For me it’s about the memories! Having experienced the world of travel both as a customer and a travel professional my first love in travel has to be a river cruise: the five star boutique ships of Uniworld are breathtaking; sipping a glass of fine wine while relaxing on the sundeck of AmaWaterways’ AmaCello as she gently traverses the Rhine Gorge; and the quiet attention of my very own private butler aboard a Scenic Cruises “Space Ship”. My love of river cruising has prompted me to specialize in all of the river cruise lines and destinations available to explore.
In this digital age there is so much choice and information available at one’s fingertips. My mission as your cruise and travel expert is to help you to make the right decisions to gain the most value from your next ocean cruise, river cruise or premium luxury vacation. A vacation is about making memories that will last a life time.
As a travel professional I have been able to bring the personal touch to all my clients, from the time they begin thinking about that next luxury river cruise or resort vacation, through the research, booking process, bon voyage, and welcome home, I am with you every step of the way. Perhaps my greatest satisfaction is having repeat clients call me and simply say “book my next vacation” safe in the knowledge that I will customize a wonderful itinerary that will exceed their expectations, be it a river cruise, ocean cruise or premium luxury resort.
All the Best
