Ever since I have been old enough to talk, I have had a passion for exploring the unknown. Seeing what others may not want to, adventuring off the beaten path. I find the most beauty in what is truly real. 

I have been in the travel industry basically for 4 years now but I grew up with travel as a huge part of my life. My mother, also being a travel agent, has made it a point to travel with me and my sister and show us that there is so much more to the world than what is in our backyard. 

I first fell in love with travel when I went to Spain at the age of 7 with my mother and my grandma. I loved seeing the cobblestone streets and meeting so many new people. That was the first time I truly remember being introduced to an entirely new culture, and trying foods I didn't even know existed.  In 2017, I got the opportunity to travel abroad to Spain and live with a family over there and see things a normal tourist wouldn't see. I got to see and experience the real everyday life of Spaniard. Now, I am fortunate enough to have a family in America and a family in Spain. 

My favorite destination is Japan. I love that it is completely a different lifestyle compared to America. Getting to explore the streets of Tokyo and see the history in Hiroshima was one of the bigger moments in my life. History has always fascinated me beyond belief. I have always craved to know more about what made our world today what it is. I believe that each countries history is what makes each one so beautiful. Knowing the Buddhist history and World war 2 history of Japan made my experience that much more special. There is so much unseen and untouched in Asia and I believe that is why my heart pulls toward it so much. 

When I travel, I do my best to walk around as much as I can to see places other than the high tourist places. So I can see what the country really has to offer and then tell my clients the best places to go other than what you would get in high tourist locations. Don't get me wrong, I find it a point to still go and see the high tourist locations but I find the real beauty in what is unseen. 

I like to be different and explore what others may not and I believe that is what makes me a great travel agent. I will work with you to make this the most magnificent trip you could have possibly imagined. I will be in close contact with you to make sure your wants are fulfilled. I will do my best to insure that you will see things like never before. I have completed my Advanced masters course on Japans National Tourism Organization. My passion for Asia and Spain will only increase as the years go by and I will continue to keep up with the latest information to make your vacation everything you've hoped for. I truly love my job and I love people. I love working with others to collaborate and grow. I will be there to answer all of your questions and make this the easiest, stress free, most beautiful adventure yet!

Alaskan Cruise for my Father's 80th B-Day!
Trinity helped plan an Alaskan Cruise. She was great to work with overall. Two issues that Trinity was critical in solving for me was getting a hotel in Anchorage the night before the cruise started and getting a shuttle reserved to take us from Anchorage to Whitter (where the ship was docked). If Trinity wouldn't have reached out to me to make sure that these issues were scheduled, I would have been in a tough spot. Trinity did a great job!
