I'm a former Executive Assistant turned stay-at-home mom living in South-Western Ontario with my husband of 15 years and our two active children. In the time between our busy family's priorities, you'll find me planning friends', neighbours' and relatives' Walt Disney World vacations. Although working with Walt Disney World has always been a dream of mine, it's never been a very 'attainable' goal since I'm Canadian and live 2,054 kms away from The Happiest Place on Earth! When the Moms Panel was first announced, I just knew that it was meant for me to be a part of and so began the pursuit of my dream. Finally, a chance to share my knowledge and love of Walt Disney World with an audience spanning outside my own circle of friends and family! It's definitely my absolute "dream come true" to be a part of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and I feel privileged to be able to add some extra pixie dust to countless families' vacations!
About My Family
My husband and I have two happy, active kids. Our son plays goalie on his hockey team and also enjoys snowboarding in the winters and lacrosse in the summer. Our daughter has danced competitively since the age of 5 in every dance style possible which keeps us hoppin', literally, traveling to competitions throughout each spring. Many of our family's special memories have taken place at Walt Disney World. Our kids both learned that if you lose a tooth while at Walt Disney World, the Tooth Fairy doesn't visit, Tinker Bell does! It's HER "fairy jurisdiction" after all! We've enjoyed 3 Grand Gatherings with family & friends as well as several Disney Cruises. Our ultimate, dream vacation would be to go "Around the World in Disney style." As Walt Disney himself said, "If you can dream it, you can do it." So, I'm going to keep on dreaming!
About My Disney Experience
My first trip to Walt Disney World was at the age of 7. I visited three more times during my youth & adolescence before my first time experiencing the Magic of Disney as a "Mom" when my own daughter was 23 months old. We cherish every moment we spend together in the parks & resorts and now that the kids are getting older, we especially enjoy new tours & experiences together. I've planned Disney vacations for families with toddlers, teens & every age in between as well as honeymooners and multi-generational Grand Gatherings. I particularly enjoy sharing tips on using the Disney Dining Plan and making dining & resort recommendations to suit a family's tastes or budget. The real magic of Walt Disney World for me is that it is truly never the same vacation twice. I look forward to using my 30+ years of Walt Disney World vacation experiences & knowledge to enrich the vacations of so many more families during my time on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.
