Kaleidoscope Success Story of the Week

I called Tracy not even knowing where I wanted to take my sister and Mom for their 40th and 60th birthday. Within a few days I was more than excited that Tracy had found us the perfect destination and we were booked for a dream vacation. Growing up my sister always wanted to go on a trip with just the girls and Tracy made her surprise dream come true! Thank you so much Tracy for working with me and narrowing down where might be the best place to go and staying within the budget I had provided! I have 100% confidence in you and look forward to booking my next vacation hopefully very soon!

About the Founder of Kaleidoscope

As a travel professional, I strive to do more than just simply book your trip and plan your itinerary. I love to go the extra mile — quite literally — and travel to your destination with you as an escort.

I specialize in river & ocean cruising, escort vacations, group travel and destination weddings.
My job provides me with the opportunity to help my clients on a personal level, giving them the support and information they need throughout the entire travel experience.

Group travel is my passion. Whenever I hear about a new and exciting destination, I don't think about planning a personal vacation there. Instead, I think about how it would make an amazing group trip.

I have many regular clients who contact me and ask "Where are we going this year?" I offer three to four escorted group trips every year, and each trip offers something different and unique. I have planned river cruises in Europe, shopping trips to New York City, a cruise through the Mediterranean, Safari to Africa, Island hopping in Galapagos, land cruise tour in the Yukon and Alaska, Machu Pecha and Peru just to name a few.

In addition, I specialize in destination weddings. I have been in the industry for 17 years, and I travel about a dozen times each year.

I have an intimate understanding of the logistics that are involved in planning a destination wedding, and I love to help my couples feel at ease while they plan this special day. I planned my own destination wedding in Huatuclo, Mexico in February 2015. My clients appreciate the fact that I often travel with them to their wedding in order to assist them as best I can. I have attended over 20 destination weddings over the last 10 years and love the fact that in working with brides and grooms I can offer first-hand knowledge for the destination wedding process.

My personal and professional travel experiences make me an outstanding travel agent, but my clients also benefit from my professional credentials, which include:

  • Certified as an Elite Cruise Counselor
  • Certified as a Luxury Cruise Counselor
  • Certified as an Adventure Travel Specialist
  • Avalon Waterways Specialist
  • Certified Sandals Specialist
  • Celebrity Cruise Consultant
