After teaching social studies for 23 years, I decided to retire early and explore the world. This has led me to join Travelmation LLC and help others plan their adventures. I am now ready to help singles, couples, and families discover the joy that travel brings.
While attending Purdue University, I applied to do my student teaching in Exeter, England. While I was there, I explored all over England, France, Spain, and Sweden. After coming home to the states, my perspective on life had changed greatly, and I was bit by the travel bug.
I have always loved the world of Disney and all the magic it brings to life. My last trip to the Magic Kingdom in 2020, was the last time I got to vacation with my mother. Disney will always hold a special place in my heart for that reason. My mother also introduced me to cruising. I have been on Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruises, and I'm always looking for great deals.
My favorite place to travel is Alaska. I was awarded a Lilly Endowment grant to study the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in 2021. I was able to travel to Anchorage, Seward, Whittier, Denali, and Fairbanks to experience Alaska. I would love to help you and your family visit this amazing state.
I live in McCordsville, Indiana, with my amazing husband, 3 of our 6 children, and 3 goofy dogs. We also have 3 married, adult children and two grandkids. When not planning vacations, I love reading, walking my dogs, and riding our Harley. My husband and I also own a small business called Indy Van Rental that I help run. I can not wait to help you plan your next adventure!
