It’s great to have you here!  I may be fresh to the Briar & Main team, but one thing that isn’t new to me is the world of travel. From a young age, my family instilled the excitement and passion to explore new places outside of our rural farm in Southern
Illinois. Whether a weekend getaway to a nearby city or a two-week trip out west, we enjoyed dreaming, planning, and executing these adventures as a family.

My Story

Decades later, as an adult, I still find myself planning trips for my husband and I, along with extended friends, family and really anyone who wants to talk travel. This natural- born hobby has now landed me a spot as a travel designer where I can exercise my
entrepreneurial ambitions and creativity. My motto, when it comes to travel, is simply to “take the trip.” I would love to help make this possible for you!

The Rest is History....

As a Disney enthusiast myself, I specialize in all Disney Destinations (parks, cruises & Adventures by Disney). I also plan all-inclusive travel and cruises to destinations in the
United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe. Whether traveling solo or with a large party, I am here to listen to your dreams and combine that with my expertise to
create a trip that is tailored just for you.

It is one of my greatest desires to help others experience the magic of Disney, explore exciting new lands, and find the joy traveling brings. To Disney and Beyond…

Favorite things: Dole Whips at Disney, Hiking in the Mountains, Cookie (my cat) & Meaningful Conversations
