Meet Our Team
I am a Florida Native, born and raised in Bartow in central Florida. Graduated from Florida State University in Fashion Merchandising/Marketing degree in 1984 and moved to the Tampa area. Retail brought me to Jacksonville in 1989 with the opening of The Landing. I started a new career in Travel in 1991 at Cruise Center and have been here ever since.
I truly love traveling and have been helping clients create memorable trips down to the finest detail for over 30 years now. Happy clients that have great trips are my biggest reward! Fortunately, my husband Scott loves travel as much as I do, so we make the perfect pair!
We have 2 kitties we love dearly, Sophia, a Ragdoll, and Allie, a Ragamuffin. Aside from cruising and traveling, I enjoy the outdoors biking, boating, kayaking, the beach and fishing whenever I can! Alaska is a huge passion – to the point that we achieved our dream and purchased a vacation home in Seward, Alaska, called Fishers Hideaway- find it on VRBO. Destination specialties include but are not limited to Alaska, Tahiti, Hawaii, Italy, Costa Rica, and Ireland.
My Dad is retired Navy, so my traveling experiences started at a young age. The joys of traveling and moving to new places is why I love being a Travel Advisor for the past 30 years. Travel and new adventures, exciting new destinations and the experiences that comes with exploring the culture, the food and the feel of each destination is why I look for opportunities to travel as often as I can.
I have two grown sons Brad and Chandlor, combining family and travel are my passions. Travel is more than the seeing of the sights it is making memories with your family and friends. A few of my travel experiences I would love to share with you is the Galapagos Islands, Australia, Mediterranean and Greek Isles, Scandinavia and Russia, Ireland and most recent two weeks RVing in Alaska with my Sons.
I enjoy all types of travel, Ocean Cruises, River Cruises, Land Vacation, All-Inclusive and RV Camping. As your Travel Advisor my passion is to help guide you while planning your ideal vacation. Travel planning can be complicated, if you are planning family vacation, All-Inclusive, cruise or land vacation, I’m here to help find the right fit and make your life easier.

I believe your memories make the best souvenirs. Reach out and let’s start planning from your travel wish list today.
I’m a native of Baltimore, Maryland with two adult children and one adult granddaughter who also loves cruising. My husband’s work brought us to Florida in 1997 and we love living here. I’ve been with Cruise Center since just before Suzanne and Kathy purchased it in 1999.
My husband and I started cruising in the 80’s, fell in love with it, and since then have cruised with many different lines some pretty exciting places. Cruising is a wonderful way to see the world and you only have to unpack once! It’s amazing to visit so many European cities in one vacation. Ports of call in England, Belgium, France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey have been crossed off my travel bucket list!
I would love to help you plan your trips to these historic, scenic places. Italy is a favorite destination of mine. Whether on a tour where you get a more in depth experience of staying several days in one place and your group feels a bit like family when it ends, a cruise or roaming around on your own, Europe is a must see. Of course, the Caribbean and Mexico are easier getaways and I’ve been to most of the islands and the vacation spots on both the east and west coast of Mexico. The clear Caribbean water is incredible for water activities either passive or active. It’s hard to beat sailing in those waters! So many places to go and not enough time! Go when you can.
Travel creates lots of memories and gives you wonderful experiences to enrich your life and broadens your perspective of the world. Cruise certifications include Accredited Cruise Counselor with CLIA, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean and MSC. Other cruise line certifications are pending.
