About

As an affiliate of Travel Leaders Network, Luxe Escapes Travel has access to exclusive travel providers across the world. Unlike online booking engines our relationships and access to top suppliers allow us to give our clients the absolute best experience and value from the best in the industry. We get access to free perks, upgrades, and exclusive amenities all while delivering the individualized, detailed attention to clients that small businesses are best known for. We love to customize your experience and tailor it to suit you. 

I have always loved to travel - it offers one the chance for an escape, a chance for adventure and the opportunity to learn not only about other cultures, but about yourself as well. I have traveled through Europe, cruised over 50 times and have visited 35 + countries. A few of my favorite trips include cruising the Panama Canal, touring Iceland, and of course the Caribbean. I have owned and operated another business within my community for nearly 15 years. After the unexpected loss of my brother and best friend in 2015 I realized life was too short to not pursue my passion. He and I grew up with a love of travel and were very fortunate to have been all over the world but more importantly had each other to share it with. He is a driving factor behind Luxe Escapes Travel. When I am not on the computer or phone arranging travel or traveling myself, you can find me at my other local business and spending time with my fiancé and our rescue cats; we are very active in the TNR program in our area. Life is too short not to fully enjoy every second of it with those you love.

 
Planning the perfect trip for my clients is truly an honor and a passion of mine, not just a job. As a travel professional I truly love designing personalized experiences. I know how to make the booking process and travel relaxing and completely stress-free, and I’ll help you create a perfect vacation that fits you. I am certified with a variety cruise lines and resorts and am constantly learning to stay up to date with the latest information and promotions. Whether you want to enjoy a weekend getaway at the beach, cruise to multiple destinations, or discover a beautiful new culture, I want you to have an incredible time.
To ensure this, I will:
  • Fully personalize your itinerary

  • Provide unique tips and insider information
  • Research your destination
  • Find accommodations, flights, and cruises that fit your group
  • Be available to assist you at all times
