I have been working in the travel industry for 15 years. I enjoy helping customers plan memorable vacations all over the world. I have focused my training to learn about popular European destinations including Italy, England, Ireland, France and Spain. I also have experience in planning trips to Australia and New Zealand. These exciting destinations have captured my interest and I work closely with my clients to develop an unforgettable vacation experience. I am a Certified Travel Associate earned from the Travel Institute of America and a Certified Travel Specialist after completion of the Travel Leaders agent program. European Culture and Heritage was a large part of my course work. I also specialized in Luxury and All-inclusive travel. I have completed my certification with Viking Cruises and Globus Journeys. The ever growing popularity of river cruising is a great way for travelers to get an intimate experience of the countries/cities along the major waterways in Europe, Asia and South America. My leisure interests and course training focus have also included the cruise industry and all-inclusive travel. I am a Commodore Specialist with Princess Cruise Lines. I am also a Disney Travel Specialist. I have personally traveled throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. I also enjoy traveling to Las Vegas and the US National Parks. My initial industry focus was on acquiring and managing corporate travel accounts. I continue to work directly with travel managers to develop corporate travel policies and implement booking procedures. Once a travel program is established the focus shifts to monitoring and maintaining the program through the use of customized reporting and corporate review meetings.

Customer Testimonials

Golden Eagle Luxury Train through Russia

Thank you so much for handling the arrangements for my Russia trip. It was phenomenal and well worth the planning, time, and cost. It really changed my ideas about Russia and Russian culture. We are talking about a 180 degree change. The train was very nice - all the staff except for the train doc were Russian and the sweetest and most accommodating people. It was a little odd being on a train for 2 weeks, but the scenery and stops were well worth it. Lake Baikal was extraordinary - 2 people actually went swimming if you count dipping your toes in the water. Except maybe the day we went to 4 museums in a row. The food was so good on and off the train. One of the highlights was lunch at Cafe Pushkin in Moscow. I actually went and found the recipe for their Beef Stroganoff and Borscht on line. I know I keep saying it, but this trip would not have happened if it had not been for you.

Excellent Travel Guidance

For the past six years Kim has been an excellent guide for Judy and I on our travels around the world! She helped us explore from Africa to India and from Ireland to Italy (and many places in between}. She has led us to discover one of our favorite places, The Nisbet Plantation on the island of Nevis and is currently planning our third trip to India next May. Kim always makes time to deal with the details of our travels to make our travel experiences special!

Consummate Travel Professional

Anyone who has Kim as a guru of luxury travel is very lucky. Not only is she a consummate professional, she is a kind and considerate individual. Kim has planned several trips for me with incredible attention to detail and my needs as a traveler. Each trip has been wonderful and exactly what I expected. My latest trip on The Royal Scotsman, a trip through the Scottish Highlands, Wales, and England by train, was planned and made possible by Kim. She recommended I break my return trip with a stop in Washington DC. It gave me time to visit Arlington National Cemetery and old friends without added air expense. Kim and I are planning next year’s trip on the Trans Siberian Railway - a trip that includes getting from southern Arizona to Vladivostok to embark and return from Moscow. This is a trip that has to be planned a minimum of 12 months in advance. I cannot fathom how I would get this together without Kim’s guidance and her willingness to work with me on time and budget.

An Adventure of a lifetime!
Kimberly is really easy to work with. Share a destination and what you want to experience and she will put together a trip for you. Our family went on an African Safari that was amazing. We saw such a variety of wildlife , our guides were so knowledgeable and the accommodations were great.

Foreign travel made easy!
Kim was truly awesome to work with on the planning of two overseas trips that my family and I recently took. These trips involved SE Asia and Scotland; two completely different areas of the world. Kim helped with Visas, flights, places to stay, guides, and activities in these locations. She was instrumental in planning for the great experiences we had in both locations. I definitely will be using Kim again and again for all of my future travels. Thank you so much Kim!

Alaskan fishing trip
Kim did an excellent job with my Alaskan fishing adventure. There are so many fishing lodges on the internet, I would have never found this lodge on my own. She did an outstanding job making all the arrangements and keeping me updated on flight changes. The accommodations, staff, food and beverages and fishing were all top notch. The Anvik River Lodge is an excellent destination.
