I have the best job in the world, I make dreams come true! At the end of the day my husband will ask how my day went, I get to reply with things like, “I was in Alaska this morning, Rome and St. Lucia this afternoon, and ended with a cruise". What...

I am a Travel Leaders Leisure Specialist, so I can help in all of your leisure needs. If you want to take a cruise I am a Princess & Cunard Commodore, the highest level of training & I have sailed with both companies, so I know the quality they bring to the table. I am also a Un-Cruise Adventure Certified Adventurist which is there highest level of education, if you want a different kind of cruise, this is it, they provide a wonderful experience, with a small ship atmosphere, only 84 passengers or less, capable of going where the large ships can't go, no docks with many mega ships, you won't see any other people but the ones who live around the areas. They will take you into wild to see the animals and not the people. I am a Norwegian Specialist and have had the opportunity to sail on the Pride in Hawaii along with the Inaugural sailing on the Escape in 2015. They offer wonderful food and entertainment. If you have a family, I have my Discover Disney Cruise line, Discover the Enchantment of Aulani Disney and Adventures by Disney classification, so I can help you plan the perfect family vacation. I am a Royal Caribbean Certified Cruise Professional and can send you on a cruise anywhere you would like to go. I have sailed the Mediterranean and several Caribbean sailings on RCCL. Cruises are probably my number one vacation just because they are so broad, with the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii and the Mediterranean being my top locations. And I have been to all of them. And love them all! If you prefer to stay in the US, I have the qualifications to help you have the perfect vacation. I am a Las Vegas Expert and have been to Las Vegas numerous times. If you want to get married, have a Bachelor or Bachelorette party, go to the National Finals Rodeo, attend a conference or just take in some shows and the casinos, this is top single destination. Fun, Fun, Fun! Prefer Alaska, not only am I an Alaska Certified Expert, I have been there and love this part of our county. So massive, so beautiful, totally AWE inspiring! Whether it be a cruise, land package, snow skiing, hiking or a bit of all of it, I can get it done for you. I am a Hawaii Destination Specialist, I have been to the Big Island twice, Kauai, Honolulu, Maui and Hilo. You won't find a prettier destination and no passport needed. I have done weddings here along with many honeymoons and anniversary trips with a few business trips. I am a Florida Active Specialist, with so much to offer... cruises, destination weddings, honeymoons, Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and the BEACH to just name a few. I would love to help you create the perfect Florida trip. San Diego is on of my favorite US destinations, and being a San Diego Specialist I can take care of you, other favorites US cities of mine are Minneapolis, Boston and Williamsburg VA. I am an avid snow skier, going multiple times a year for 37 years so I can get you the best packages and find you the best snow. Something different, how about taking a train across Canada, I am a Rocky Mountaineer and have been selling this wonderful trip for years. For 20+ years I have been a scuba diver traveling Mexico and the Caribbean to see beneath the sea. My husband and brother are rescue divers and two of my children are certified, so a big part of our life. My ventures have taken me to Mexico and to too many Caribbean countries to list. I am a Cayman Islands Master Specialist, Dive and Nature Master Specialist and Family Travel Master Specialist. Club Med Specialist, Certified Sandals Specialist, Cancun Specialist, St. Lucia Destination Specialist, Puerto Rico Travel Expert, Riviera Nayarit Destination Specialist, and Magic of Mexico Specialist. I have the knowledge and the training to help you plan the perfect beach vacation. Because of its broadness this is the number 1 destination I sell!!! Fiji, I am a Fiji Matai Happiness Specialist, great place for weddings and honeymoons or to just mark off your bucket list. And one of my all time favorites... Europe! So much history, the architecture, I would go back tomorrow. I have helped people ski in Austria, cruise all over including River cruising and the Mediterranean which are probably my most popular. Many like to do trips on their own, taking the train and visiting off the beaten paths, others like to have a self-guided tours. Call me and lets have fun planning your Leisure trip of a lifetime or maybe just a short weekend.

I really can’t think of anything that you didn’t do. We are so thankful we went through you! Definitely made things go smoothly!

Simply the BEST
I have been using Penny since 2012 and would not use another agent. Penny has always gone above and beyond for me trying to find the best deals. I have even cancelled trips I built and gotten online "cheap" because she has found it even cheaper, WITH perks I was not going to be getting. '
I will also note when she takes me on, she knows its is not going to be easy. I like to change plans on her generally AFTER booking! She has never complained or been rude to me. She also takes into consideration the fact that we have a special needs son when she builds or vacations! I simply cannot put into words how amazing it is to have a travel agent as kind and considerate and frugal as Penny!! LOVE her!!
