I have been a full-time travel advisor since 1985 and I still love my job! Everyone ALWAYS asks me "Where is your favorite place that you've been?" - That's a really tough question because I can honestly say I LIKE everywhere I visit as it's always some type of experience. It might be educational, cultural or just relaxing! Doesn't matter to me because I don't think I will ever be too old to learn.  I am proficient in Luxury, Vacation, and Corporate Travel.  

There is no doubt that this industry has changed quite a bit over the last 35 years but I still feel such satisfaction when a Honeymooner returns from a fabulous trip and can't wait to tell me all about it, or when a Grandma/Grandpa arrive at a hotel and are treated like VIPs because I took a minute to contact the front desk and announce their arrival as "very special guests" of mine.

It's a BIG world out there - where would YOU like to go??

I'm VERY happy to help you make that dream come true!

The best of Ireland with Tauck
Karen always makes travel arrangements easy and stress free. Easy to work with and takes care of all the details. She always follows up including double checking for lower air and rental car costs as trips get closer to departure.

I cannot imagine a trip without Karen's expertise!
Karen is my go-to expert for every travel need. She has booked many USA and international trips for me. She makes as many travel arrangements as I want (airlines, car rentals, accommodations, driver, tours, activities, etc). She thinks of every single detail. Karen is the single most thorough, professional, kind, and knowledgeable person I have ever encountered in a service industry.

Mediterranean cruise
Karen has been our travel agent for several years. She responds quickly to requests sending several options for review. What I love most is her personal recommendations...she is always right. Vacations have always exceeded expectations...we have never been disappointed. Karen thinks of everything so you don't have to. She clearly loves her work and we highly recommend her.

A vacation to remember!
In March of this year, we had Karen put together a trip for us to the Caribbean. We wanted to go back to beautiful Jamaica to renew our wedding vows. Brian and I got married there 20 years ago. Since Karen did such an awesome job arranging that trip, we knew we could count on her to make this one just as wonderful. She did not let us down. Karen is friendly, knowledgeable and always does her very best to make our vacations memorable and fun!

Thanks Sue - After all the years of booking your trips you are more like FAMILY rather than a "customer". Love and hugs to you and Brian and Cheers! to many more happy years of marriage! xo
