Escorted European Vacations & Hawaii Specialist

I have been a travel consultant for 40 years. I became a travel consultant because I have always enjoyed learning about different cultures in the world. My primary destinations now are Europe & Hawaii, but I have helped many travelers plan vacations in Mexico and Caribbean. I have been fortunate to have travelled to these areas numerous times over the years, which has greatly enhanced my selling experience. I have also taken volumes of seminars & webinars to keep up with these destinations & changes in our industry. I especially enjoy working with clients who do not depend on the Internet as their main source of information, but who appreciate my professional expertise. I try to steer my clients towards top quality vacations, based on their budgets. We use quality suppliers that offer good value for their dollar, thus avoiding some of the pitfalls found online.

You are the best, and we are so grateful to work w
You are the best, and we are so grateful to work with you on our trips! I can see why this agency won so many awards if all of the consultants that work there are even a quarter as good as you are. You have taken EXCELLENT care of us since we moved to the resort side of vacationing. I know in this day and age people can setup their own travel arrangements and plans etc.; however, all we can think of when it comes to our trips is you! We have recommended you to several people we know. You rock Pat! Thanks for everything you do to give us peace of mind concerning our trips.

Long Term Excellence
I have worked with Pat for 7-8 years traveling to all parts of the US and a fair amount in the Caribbean. In all cases, Pat has proven to be efficient, effective, courteous and MOST patient. She always works with my preferences yet provides great alternatives for convenience and savings. Pat is an excellent agent providing outstanding service with a wonderful outlook and attitude. She has been consistent even in the face of last-minute changes and modifications which, for sure, have tried my patience. She handled them like a trooper and delivered prompt updates and modifications. Pat continually has worked to provide a quality, safe and pleasant travel experience. Her customers are #1 for her!
