Agent Specializing in Australia, Europe & Africa

Having visited Europe, Australia, and Egypt is a huge bonus when it comes to helping clients book trips. It makes it so much easier to help travelers understand the culture that they would be venturing into and with so many ways to travel these days (land tours/ cruises/ trains) having first hand knowledge helps fit their trip to their expectations - and hopefully go beyond! I also love train travel and creating fun hotel/tour train packages to destinations all over the world. It becomes part of the experience rather than just a means to get there and it's fun to get up and walk around!

Ireland Specialist

When I think of Ireland I think of beautiful Atlantic Ocean views backdropped against lush green hills, amazing nice/honest people, sheep roaming the grassy knolls, the historic Cliffs of Moher with its diving Puffins, frothy Guinness beer, Irish jigs, Connemara marble/Waterford crystal/Titanic ship...

The Rock of Cashel

Egypt and Africa Adventurer

Egypt is one place that people either have an affinity for or not.  For those who do, it runs deep.  I've visited Cairo several times and each time I go it is so interesting to see the dichotomy of this great ancient area.  It's a place where you'll find a Mercedes-Benz driving next...

My Travel Stories

Peru is much more than Machu Picchu

I recently had the honor to see one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World” and a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the grand Machu Picchu in Peru.  It is a place that only the brave visit for the bus ride up the mountain is besieged with narrow bumpy roads that snake along a railless edge.  But, if you...Read more.

A wonderful getaway
It was so much easier booking a trip with Deb than trying to do it on our own. So very helpful!

Bucket list trip to Germany and Austria
Deb was very polite, knowledgeable, and proactive. There was a problem with one of our transfers while we were in Germany. We called her and she had the problem resolved within a few hours and we were able to continue on with our itinerary without interruption. She was a lifesaver!

Fabulous Trip!
My husband and I contacted Deb at Travel Leaders after my sister recommended the company to us as they had vacationed the previous year and had Travel Leaders coordinate a travel plan for their family. She was very pleased with her experience, so we decided to do the same. Deb was very pleasant to work with. She responded very quickly to emails and phone calls - and we all know this is important because when planning a trip, we want to know every detail as soon as possible!

We weren't really sure at first on where we wanted to vacation or if we wanted to go on a cruise or stay at a resort - all we knew is that we wanted warm weather and sunshine! Deb quickly found many options that were perfect, but not too many that we were overwhelmed with making a choice. After we decided on a trip to a beach resort destination, she was able to find us the perfect location and a fabulous resort. A BIG Thank you to Deb - I would recommend her to all my family and friends!

A wonderful adventure!
This turned out to be a complicated trip, with several others joining us at last minute. she made all our connections, transportation and hotel accommodations very good and easy.
If we ever had a question she was very available to explain and help. We could not have done this without her. We would highly recommend her for any travel plans.
