With over twenty years experience as a tour director and trade show travel manager, I qualified to lead adult, senior and student groups in over forty cities in the USA, Canada and Europe and holds New York City and Washington, DC guide licenses.
I have have been a tour director for over twenty years for student, international, incentive and senior groups. I hold guide licenses for both New York City and Washington, DC and conducts tours of the US, Canada and Europe.
I'm Certified International Tour Manager (CITM) and began her career by leading two-week tours of Europe for Page & Moy Holidays and Concert Tours for Performing Arts Abroad.
After several years of European touring, she came back to the US and began leading tours of the USA and Canada for Tauck Tours, Saga and Globus & The Cosmos.
In addition to French, I studied Spanish, Italian, German and even Catalan! I lived in France for four years, spent summers in Spain, and was based in Great Britain for two years while leading tours of Europe, then study German in Berlin while leading groups through Germany, Switzerland, Austria and eastern Europe. She spent two seasons escorting tours through Italy.
Returning to the USA, I continued conducting tours of the USA and Canada and learned French Canadian Quebecois.
At the end of one tour season, I was asked to staff an international help desk at an American College of Cardiology Orlando Convention. She enjoyed the experience so much that she decided to learn more about the convention business.
For the last fifteen years, I have combined tour directing with convention and trade show work. I work regularly with Globus and The Cosmos, Go West Tours, Academic Travel and EF Tours.
When not on the road with a tour group or involved with a trade show, she studies voice, volunteers at a local school and performs with a local Orlando Broadway Group.
I divide her time between Orlando, FL and Ridgefield, CT and lives with her husband, daughter and two very spoiled golden retrievers.
