About Us

The Vacation Lady was opened in October, 2009 after working 3 years as an independent agent in North Carolina and Kentucky.  I obtained my CTA (Certified Travel Associate) certification in May 2010, through The Travel Institute.  I am a member of, and my agency booking credentials are through CLIA, the Cruise Line International Association.

My love of travel was inspired by a visit to Walt Disney World in Florida.  I visited the park for the first time on July 4th, 1976, the year of the bicentennial.  What a spectacular time that was.  I’ve been hooked since.  We took our kids every year for many years and I’ve visited several times for business, travel agent training, and on trips with friends, family, and now grand kids.  I’ve lost count, but I’m sure I’ve been over 40 times.  It really is the happiest place on earth!  Even though Disney holds a special place in my heart, I love cruises and all-inclusive resorts.  Actually, I think any vacation is my favorite!

Periodically, I participate in local bridal shows and advertise locally, but most of my business is driven from repeat business or referrals.  I have clients all over the U.S.   I think my personal service and my love and enthusiasm for my job is what wins my clients over and keeps the referrals coming.

My goal is to provide better service and value than any other means of travel planning.  I believe that nothing beats personalized service and attention to detail.

I recognize the need for an experienced agent in the Internet age.  I know my clients appreciate the value of being able to speak to a "live" person.  I have completed and hold many destination certifications including; Las Vegas, Disney Destinations, The Islands of Hawaii, Florida Destinations, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Princess Cruise Line, Cancun Tourism, Sandals Resorts, Mexico, and Palace Resorts, to name a few.

Thank you for visiting my web site.  I look forward to working with you on your travel needs.
