I inadvertently caught the travel bug while pursuing a career in animal care, which has allowed me to gain practical travel knowledge. I have had opportunities to visit Canada and Mexico. I spent a summer living in Ireland, and traveled to Northern Ireland, Scotland, and England. I lived in the United Arab Emirates for almost a year, and during that time visited South Africa, Portugal, and Thailand. I grew up in Indiana, but I have had the chance to live in Florida on two separate occasions, and I now live in Louisiana. Each time I lived in Florida was for an opportunity to work at the Walt Disney World Resort.
I fell in love with Disney during my first visit in 2004. Fast forward 11 years & several more Disney trips later, during the spring semester of 2015, I participated in Disney's Professional Internship program as a Marine Mammal Intern. For six months, I worked at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion at Epcot learning about the care of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and West Indian manatees!
Fast forward again, this time to January of 2017, when I had the opportunity to participate in the Disney College Program during the Spring 2017 term. I accepted a role in attractions and was placed at Star Tours- The Adventure Continues in Disney’s Hollywood Studios! I spent another six months making magic!
During my time as a cast member, I lived, ate, and breathed the Disney parks. I learned everything from efficiently navigating the property, to getting the most out of each visit, to the best places to eat, and much more! I may not be a cast member anymore, but I still visit whenever possible, and I continue to expand my first-hand experience. I decided I couldn’t keep all this insider knowledge to myself anymore. I want to share it— with you! So, I became a travel planner affiliated with Jolly Holiday Travel Company! Now I have the chance to help others experience the magic as I have. Basically, I want to be your fairy godmother and make all your travel dreams come true.
