I am a married mother of 2, with my 1st grandchild on the way. Born and raised in the heart of Chicago, but a Hoosier for the last 14 years. I fell in love with travel the day I met my husband. He'd traveled all over the world while in the military and told me all the stories that made me dream of 1 day sharing in such an experience with him. Fast forward to 1997. I was hired by Southwest Airlines as a Reservation Agent and the desire to travel could now be a reality. Not only did I work for the Airline, but my husband was a Manager at Hilton Corporation, so you know what that meant, free flights and discounted accommodations. We begin to take our daughter on flights frequently even if it was just for a day trip to DC. I found myself in 2014 wanting to be more involved in the travel industry. I jumped head 1st into what is now Ladies & Luggage. Ronnie & I have taken a passion and dream and turned it into reality. From sitting on the beach in Cabo to the amazing beauty of Dubai, this journey is nothing short of God's plan for my life. I look forward to sharing in this travel life with so many of you all from now until forever.
I began exploring the world at a very early age. As a kid, my family and I traveled every summer. I took my first steps in my parent's van while driving across country from Chicago to California. With my first child on the way, traveling will be a family tradition I will most definitely continue.
After living in Las Vegas for fifteen years and working in Corporate America, the government sector, and in education, I decided to move back to my hometown of “Chicago”. While each of these career fields was fulfilling and rewarding, none of them filled my passion for traveling and exploring the world. After meeting Dacia and learning how much we both enjoyed traveling, I decided to take a leap of faith and impart on the journey as the CFO for Ladies & Luggage Luxury Travel Group. My passion for traveling the world, and experiencing diverse cultures has never been more exemplified.
I am ready to take on the world one flight at a time, and I will see you along the way as you travel with us.
