Caribbean,Europe, Cruise & Group Travel Specialist

For over 20 years, I have worked in different areas of the travel industry with a focus on customer satisfaction! I started as a marketer and sales associate before I began focusing entirely on customized trips for my clients.

I’m from Virginia but have lived abroad in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The experience showed me how wonderful exploring other cultures can be and I love helping my clients learn all about their destination before arriving.

I have a passion for bringing a positive energy to my clients which helps to make for effortless trip planning. I know that booking vacations can be complicated, but with my industry expertise, you can go anywhere in the world without a moment’s hesitation!

I have a lot of experience in the Caribbean along with US national parks and European countries. Some of my favorite destinations to book include:

  • Cancun
  • Jamaica
  • Hawaii
  • Turks & Caicos
  • Virgin Islands
  • New York City
  • France
  • Spain

I will work with you to create a personalized itinerary that focuses on your interests and passions. Whether you want to take a Caribbean cruise or visit French castles, I will simplify everything so you can enjoy your trip without stress.

I’ve worked with all types of travelers including couples, singles, families, honeymooners, large groups and more.  My goal is to make every itinerary unique so you can have a memorable experience that’s unlike anything else. Booking on your own can lead to standardized tours and less than ideal accommodations. With my help, you will get everything you want so you can enjoy the vacation of your dreams!

I’ve experienced luxury cruises with multiple stops, scenic excursions in Europe that dive into the local culture, and sailing trips around Spain and France. Tell me about your ideal vacation so I can create it for you today!

Wife and Daughter spring break adventure made easy
Amy has great discovery skills and is very pleasant and caring. This was a small project for a person of her skill level, yet she made us feel like we were the most important customers on her list. She has already agreed to do our 2019 Graduation Trip, which will be more in her wheelhouse.

Travel Leaders and Viking make a great team!
Amy was a great listener and managed to fulfill our hopes for a great Viking river cruise. She coordinated pre and post trips added to the cruise and did a great job on the plane tickets. She was knowledgeable about Viking and anticipated our needs. When we had an unexpected medical emergency she got us home safely and coordinated with the insurance representatives. Thanks, Amy!

Best Large Family Trip ever!
We are currently working with Amy on our second family cruise. Our past cruise and the one coming up soon are with 6 to 8 family members from different states, various travel itineraries and special on board needs. Amy has patiently and thoroughly worked with us through the discovery stage of the cruise to the cruise itself. All documents have been carefully and completely prepared and shared with us well in advance of our sailing. She has answered all of our questions thoroughly and patiently and did digging for the answer when necessary. Our past cruise with very picky family members was just perfect and they are raving fans of Amy and Travel Leaders. We are looking forward to our upcoming cruise and will use Amy again. Great friends of ours used our recommendation of Amy for their international family trip and were more than pleased with their trip planning experience with her.
