Owner/Travel Advisor

Growing up I had the opportunity to take road trips with my family to Colorado, Yellowstone National Park and various places throughout the Midwest. After moving to the East Coast I have hiked throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains in both Virginia and North Carolina, climbed the light houses of the Outer Banks, visited our Nation's Capital and various monuments and memorials in Washington, D.C, and toured Savannah during the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Prior to meeting my husband and settling down in Virginia I was working as a full-time physical therapist. I took a position as a traveling physical therapist for a year, which allowed me to explore the coastline of Georgia, including St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Cumberland Island. During that time I was fortunate enough to experience Walt Disney World for the first time with my sister and her two children after they were granted a trip through the Make A Wish Foundation. After my husband and I got married, Sunshine Journeys helped us plan our honeymoon to Hawaii in 2018. It was after that trip that I decided to take my love for travel and turn it into a career as a travel advisor.

Since becoming an advisor with Sunshine Journeys, I have focused primarily on all-inclusive trips to the Caribbean, Hawaii, U.S. destinations, Disney, and cruise planning.  I have become a Hawaii Destination Specialist, an American Queen Steamboat Academy Certified Agent, and a Rocky Mountaineer Specialist. As a travel advisor, I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to additional U.S. and Caribbean locations and resorts to learn more about each destination so I can better assist you with your travel plans.

In January of 2023 I took over ownership of Sunshine Journeys. I have continued to educate myself and explore new destinations to expand my knowledge so I can better serve you. I have been fortunate enough to visit locations on my bucket list, and want to help you do the same! Let’s make your travel dreams a reality.

Travel Advisor/Independent Contractor

“Live life with no excuses, travel with no regret.” – Oscar Wilde


As the daughter of a Marine, I was able to see the world at an early age! I grew up moving mostly around the East Coast of the US, but had the opportunity to also live in Kailua, Hawaii. Even after settling back in Virginia, my parents afforded me the opportunity to travel with study abroad programs to Germany and the Netherlands, where I was also able to visit Austria and Belgium. In addition to my experience abroad, I have spent time traveling the United States, having visited National Parks and tourist destinations like Las Vegas, Key West, Atlanta and Nashville along with countless other cities across the United States.

Currently, I live in Fredericksburg, Virginia with my husband, 2 school aged children and our 3 dogs. On the weekends you can find us at a soccer or baseball field, cheering on our kids.  We enjoy exploring Virginia wineries and trying new recipes on the smoker.

With my previous work experience came the expectation of providing my clients with excellent customer service, which remains a priority for me today. My most recent work experience introduced me to the travel industry, which I have truly grown to love. Over the past three years, I have helped numerous clients plan their dream vacations to Canada and across Europe. My work in travel has primarily been focused on customizable travel and ensuring my clients do exactly what they’ve dreamed of, I also have experience booking cruises and guided tours.

I joined Sunshine Journeys in April 2024 with the hopes of continuing to make your vacation dreams come true. You will find that I am available and diligent in planning your experiences and will always put your wishes first!
