Specializing in Family and Friends Travel

I raised my family about 1 mile north of Disneyland in Anaheim and my sons grew up feeling that Disneyland was their playground. Over the years we traveled our area on getaways, and on longer trips, we explored Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Napa and San Francisco. I love California and its byways. My major in college was French. So I studied the culture, geography, and history as well as the language of France. It will always be my favorite European country and I love to send clients there. Italy is on everyone's shortlist of countries to visit, and it is on mine too. I've been many times and still am so looking forward to my next visit. I've sent many clients to Italy and everyone loves it. A cruise is one good way to see Italy as well as many other parts of the world. A client favorite is Alaska! Alaska is the favorite request of my clients, and a Celebrity Cruise to Alaska checks all the boxes that they are looking for!

My Travel Specialties

Family and Friends Travel Specialist

As a girl, I thought of joining the Navy to "See the world". However in college, I majored in French and Spanish, and then after wearing out my leather-soled shoes on my first trip to France, I knew travel was the right career for me.

Amazing trip
She’s amazing! She’s gone above and beyond several times, from helping us get an additional excursion on our cruise to quantifying how much we could recoup if we had to postpone it.

So much better than expected!!!
We have never used a Travel Agent before. Jerrie was our first experience and she proved it to be so worthwhile. She booked our first time at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico which was recommended. She did EVERYTHING to make our experience just wonderful with no worries at all. We were so impressed that we came home and booked another all-inclusive with her for our WHOLE FAMILY to go with us. I know it will be a trip we all will cherish.

Total Relaxation
Jerrie has gone above and beyond to accommodate us on our latest trip which involved 6 of us. Three of us came from Tucson and three came from Ohio so that was tricky to plan and get us to our resort within 30 minutes of each other arriving !!!!
