I entered the travel industry over three years ago after a lifetime of booking wonderful vacations. I’ve always enjoyed booking trips to coastal destinations, and I realized that I’d love to create beautiful memories for other people as well.

I focus on destination weddings, honeymoons, and group travel to the Caribbean Islands and beyond. Some of my favorite and most common destinations to book to include:

  • Mexico
  • Jamaica
  • Aruba
  • And more!

I’m also a certified specialist for the above destinations along with major cruise lines and resorts like Sandals. I visit many Caribbean destinations each year so I can personally recommend the greatest offerings to my clients. I want you to experience the best of your destination, and I’ll work with you to ensure you love everything about your trip!

I’ve booked romantic anniversaries along with large-scale weddings in a variety of destinations. Whether you’re traveling as a couple or with dozens of guests, I know how to make booking and traveling enjoyable at all times. Allow me to take care of the research and details for you so you can focus on having an amazing experience!

I’ve been on many trips with my family and kids, and I understand the intricacies of booking a group trip for people of all ages. With my experience, I’ll make sure everyone in your group has a wonderful time and gets to experience what they want. I’ll work with you to balance your itinerary so you never get overwhelmed or miss out on a great opportunity.

Plus, I’m always available to assist you while booking or during your vacation. I’ve helped clients after they had lost their passports or missed their flights, and I can do everything from assisting you with upgrades, itinerary changes, or even quick recommendations for local activities and meals. No matter the situation, I'll be ready to help you immediately!

With a lifetime of traveling and booking experience, I know how to customize trips exactly to your liking. Talk with me today to start booking the vacation of your dreams!

My Travel Stories

Familiarization Trip to Aruba

This past week I had the opportunity to visit Aruba with a host from the Aruba Tourism Authority. It was amazing! The water there is so blue and inviting you want to jump right in (and I did!). The people there are absolutely wonderful and so nice, and I felt so safe the entire trip, even while walking...Read more.

Customer Testimonials

Destination Wedding in Jamaica!

The trip was fabulous! The wedding was perfect! Everything went great! Jamaica Tourism was waiting for us when we got there, and took us right through! It was a breeze! I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the trip! The resort was beautiful and perfect and felt like total paradise! Exactly what we were wanting! The people were soooo nice and friendly and so much fun to talk to! The wedding was beautiful and fun and stress free. My parents had the times of their lives, and as soon as we got home, they were ready to go back! :) I cannot thank you enough for how extremely helpful and on top of things you have been! We are hoping to make a return trip in a year or 2 if possible!

ARUBA-One Happy Island to visit!
Loved our trip to Aruba which Kara planned for us! She scheduled our plane tickets so we could meet up with our co-travelers at an airport in the US before heading to Aruba, where she had private transportation waiting to take us to our hotel! Since we were all adults on this trip she suggested the 'Adults Only' part of the RIU which turned out great for us. We had an 'Adult Only' pool to swim in and relax at anytime of the day. The All Inclusive Riu was a great place to stay since Fun Activities, Food and Drink were available everywhere!

Kara helped us choose several activities away from the hotel also. The self-guided tour of the island we took one day was the best ever! We had side by side four wheelers, a map and coolers and off we went! We saw pretty much the whole island in one day! Also went on a great snorkeling boat tour and saw the sunken Antillas ship!

We were sad to leave but our private ride picked us up at the hotel and got us to the airport on time!
