Crafting Luxurious All-Inclusive Vacation Packages in tropical destinations is the #1 request I receive. Each amazing escape is tailor made for each clients’ wishes – all resorts are not the same. The only details you worry about are finding the perfect hat and flip flops. River or Ocean Cruises and European Exploration are very exciting ways to travel and see more of the world. Or stay in the USA – everyone should visit Hawaii at least once and Alaska has a welcome mat out for you. Ready to talk travel?

I work with Friend Groups, Corporate Incentive/Reward Trips, Birthday Celebrations, Anniversaries, Honeymoons, Destination Weddings and good old fashioned Family Getaways. As a Travel Escape Artist – I’ll Get You Where You Want To Go!

Warm water beach travel is my personal favorite for vacationing but Europe is my destination of choice for history, food and culture even though it’s hard for me to pack in a carry-on bag for longer than a few days! Lifetime favorite destination and an unexpected surprise (even to me!) was a stop at Ephesus, Turkey while sailing the Greek Isles. My short Bucket List: The South Pacific & Iceland. Currently planning my own European River Cruise and a return to Aruba & Hawaii.

Frequent travel to clients’ favorite destinations and all-inclusive resorts means my expert advice is honest and current. Multiple certifications with top hotel brands plus annual industry conferences keep my network with many travel partners strong. Serving clients all over the United States.

I was fortunate enough to spend much of my youth vacationing in various destinations with my family and that’s how I fell in love with travel…  As a kid, I loved nothing more than a week at Disney World, as a teenager Hawaii was my happy place, and now I love going on all inclusive romantic getaways to Mexico with my husband. The ladies at HotSpots planned our honeymoon for us and we had such an incredible experience that I told my husband, “I want to do this for people!” Now, nothing makes me happier than planning a vacation for someone which allows them to just sit back and enjoy the destination with none of the stress! My husband Mike and I have made Northern Colorado home. Last year we added a sweet baby girl to our family who keeps us on our toes. We both work for an international nonprofit youth ministry organization called Young Life where we get to invest in the lives of high school students. We love kids and can’t wait to keep exploring the world as a family!
