Independent Travel Planner

I live in Southeastern Wisconsin, just minutes from the airport which I use quite regularly to travel to Florida and California.

I began my love of Disney Parks & Universal Studios in 1995 at the age of 8 and have been back numerous times. Since then I have grown up, started a family of my own, and taken over being the main travel planner for my family which includes 4 generations of Disney travelers. In that time, I have become a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, as well as a Universal Studios Orlando Annual Passholder, which means my family makes the trip to the Orlando area numerous times a year.

I have also made multiple trips to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

Even with 11 Disney related trips since 2017, I still find that there is always something new to experience. Whether it is a new restaurant, show, attraction, ride, or experience, there is always something to make a return trip “home” special. With that in mind I hope you’ll plan your next trip with me and become part of the Reach for the Magic family.

I am a College of Disney Knowledge graduate.
