Besides having a degree in Accounting, I graduated from the Travel Education Institute. Both credentials help me understand the travel business and its specialized accounting practices. I’m responsible for all accounting and financial aspects of Gateway Travel’s back office operations.
What was your most memorable travel experience?
A week in Orlando at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. It was a great family vacation with my husband Dennis, my son Kyle, my daughter-in-law Stephanie, and my daughter Nicole. We stayed on-site at the newly renovated Virtuoso property, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. There is so much to do both day and night in the parks, featuring Harry Potter attractions and Hogwarts Express train, along with Minion Mayhem. City Walk has a lot to offer including a fabulous Blue Man Group show. My husband and I even got treated to a wonderful anniversary dinner from Kyle, Stephanie, and Nicole at the delicious Portofino Bay Hotel's on-site restaurant, Bice. That beautiful family time will always be a great lifetime memory.
What city could you revisit over and over again?
Sedona. There is something special about the red rock mountains and the feeling of a whole different place. I never tire of exploring the paths along the red rocks or the forests all around. There is a rejuvenation that is experienced with each visit.
What’s on your travel “wish list”?
An extensive African safari, Australia and New Zealand.
Any “words of wisdom” you’ve learned along the way?
Pack your patience. You never know what lies in the road ahead. Every trip is a new adventure no matter how many times you’ve been there before.
