Are you married? Yes, my husband Michael and I just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this year!
Any children? I have two sweet kiddos, Quinn who is almost 6 and Levi who is 2.
Favorite vacation destination? Disney World, of course!
Favorite Walt Disney World Resort? Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – it is an experience all by itself!
Favorite Walt Disney World attraction? Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – although if you ever saw my PhotoPass photo from the ride, you’d think I hated it!
Favorite Disney restaurant? Sanaa for lunch; I dream about the tandoori chicken on naan bread!
Favorite Disney snack? An ice cream cookie sandwich from Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom, hands down.
Wishes, Fantasmic or IllumiNations? Wishes is my favorite nighttime spectacular … it brings tears to my eyes and a smile to my face every time!
Favorite Disney Souvenir? A Disney coffee mug that I picked up on our first real family vacation.
Earliest Disney vacation memory? I remember visiting Disney World as a small child and eating at the Crystal Palace.
Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland or Walt Disney World? Disney World for now; the short, non-stop flight from New Orleans to Orlando makes it really convenient with small children.
Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? Wishes – especially Holiday Wishes – and the Christmas parade at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Where have you traveled aside from Walt Disney World? I’ve traveled to many major U.S. cities including NYC several times, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans and many more smaller towns along the way. I’ve also traveled outside of the U.S. to Jamaica; I hope to expand my international travel experiences as my children get older.
Favorite TV Show? Friends
Favorite Movie? Wizard of Oz
Favorite Color? Pink
Favorite Book? Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand and The Girl on the Train, currently (I read a lot!)
If you had to pick another job besides being a travel agent, what would you do? I actually do have another job as an English teacher at a local community college; my background includes a 10-year career in writing and communications, so I do a lot of that, too. And of course, being a mom is the best job!
