I specialize in… Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, All Inclusive Resorts, Disney for Adults, Girls Getaways, Disney Weddings

Where do you call home? I'm originally from Pennsylvania but now call Dallas, Texas home.

What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? I really wanted to be a teacher or open my own bakery.

Why did you become a travel agent? I absolutely adore the travel and hospitality industry.  I love to be able to help my clients plan that perfect getaway and make it stress-free for them.

Favorite vacation destination? Aside from Walt Disney World, I really love Europe or anywhere with a cool food scene!  I try to cross a new country off my "must visit" list every other year.

This or that:
  • Caribbean cruise or Mediterranean cruise: Mediterranean, I love all the history the ports have to offer. 
  • Mickey or Minnie: Minnie Mouse, polka dots are my thing. 
  • Mickey pretzel or Mickey ice cream: Ice cream all the way! 
  • Rope drop or close down the park: Rope Drop, best way to beat the crowds!
  • Flower and Garden or Food and Wine: Epcot never looks as beautiful as it does during Flower and Garden Festival.

Disney Favorites:
  • Park: Epcot
  • Disney attraction: 3-way tie between the Peoplemover, Tower of Terror, and Expedition Everest!  
  • Nighttime spectacular: Happily Ever After
  • Photo spot: in front of Dinosaur we always have to take a photo every trip
  • Movie: Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty and Tangled 
Earliest Disney vacation memory?  When I was about 2, I exclaimed "I want to go to Disneyland!" so my Mom and some of her friends drove across the country and took me there.  I don't know if I really remember it, but the story gets told quite a bit to this day!

My first Disneyland trip - I'm the little one!
Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? ​I tear up walking into the Magic Kingdom the first time on each trip, and while watching fireworks from Main Street.

Touring the San Francisco Bay Area
Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? I'm a bit of a travel nut, so bear with me here...  Aside from WDW, I've been to Universal Orlando Resort, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, on Caribbean and Mediterranean Cruises, and ​experienced the England and France Adventures by Disney itineraries.  I've also been to many European destinations including England, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Germany.  Stateside, I've been as far as Hawaii, up and down the East Coast from Boston, NYC, Washington D.C. to the Florida beaches, of course around Texas, and then the West Coast from San Diego up to Seattle!

A bit more about you:
  • Favorite Hobby: cooking and baking
  • Favorite Color: glitter
  • Favorite Food: I love Italian food and dessert, but I love going to new restaurants and exploring the food scene either way!
  • Favorite Sports Team: Penn State Nittany Lions
  • Favorite Quote: "All of your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney
  • Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff!

FastPass+ Step by Step Guide

Over the years, Disney has been testing and implementing many changes around Walt Disney World.  Technology that was once thought to be available only to the Jetsons is now in place all around property, making the guest experience even more seamless and enjoyable than it was before. MyMagic+ is continually improving with the addition of new features.
