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.


I began my career as a professional travel advisor to help others "see the world". Over the next 20+ years of travel planning for others and of course, travelling for myself I've had many highlights:



  • Cruises to Mexico, Alaska, and the Caribbean.

  • travelling extensively throughout my beloved France.

  • exploring Tahiti, Brazil, Greece and much more! 


My most adventurous trip was the one to Hong Kong where the language, culture and cuisine were vastly different to the one I was accustomed to. In that trip, I also  ventured by ferry to Lantau Island, Macau and throughout mainland China. 


Thanks to my passion for travel experiences and studies, my specialties include:



  • Couples planning a special travel experience to celebrate their marriage, on a Celebrity cruise to Alaska or at a luxury all-inclusive resort in Mexico or the Caribbean.

  • Families hoping to supplement the education of their children, and form closer bonds through travel experiences, at a family all-inclusive resort, on a large cruise ship with a family-fun deck. or even on an adventure small-group trip.

  • Romance travel for couples whether it be through honeymoons, on special vow-renewal vacations or on River Cruises.


My clients say that I am friendly, hardworking, responsive, intuitive, and that I "get them".


For a diverse and unique experience, and to travel your way, let me be the one to share this journey with you.

Jerrie, you're awesome! Thanks for thinking of us.

Hi Jerrie,

Just want you to know we are having a really wonderful time here at Finesterra, Los Cabos. Every day we have seen so many whales whether we are standing in the hotel lobby, sitting on our balcony or walking the beach. It truly has been so exciting to see so many.

The hotel is impeccable. Everywhere you look staff are cleaning!! All the staff are so friendly and willing to help you out. Our room is huge and the view....WOW....perfect.

Going on a sunset dinner cruise tonight which should be fun having our family all together. Will send pictures !!Thanks, Jerrie

Excellent cruise advisor.
Very competent, friendly, and easy to work with. She found us the kind of cruise we wanted when we couldn't find it anywhere online.

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.

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 !!!!

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.
