- Disneyland Resort® Specialist
I’m a native of California’s sunny Central Valley, just a few hours from the Disneyland Resort. I “grew up Disney” and many of my fondest childhood memories involve Disney theme parks, movies, or music. One of my earliest memories of Disneyland is riding Dumbo the Flying Elephant as a 4-year-old and being totally enchanted with the magic of that first flight. I’m a working mom, a Disney Pin trader, a Disney Vacation Club member, a social media addict, an avid traveler, and a food-lover who’s in constant pursuit of the next delicious thing at the Disneyland Resort! From fine dining, to character meals, to counter service, to on-the-go snacks, I have experienced nearly every food establishment the parks have to offer. In my professional life, I’ve worked in the fields of journalism, event planning, and technology, so I can’t wait to combine those skills with my pixie-dusted Disney knowledge to help you plan your perfect Disneyland Resort visit!
About My Family
I’m married to my college sweetheart, and we have a spunky little prince who keeps us laughing. My husband and son share my passion for all things Disney, from donning Disney-themed Halloween costumes to having Disney soundtrack sing-alongs on road trips! We’re an ethnically diverse family and love exploring new places, cultures, and cuisine. Our friends often joke that we’re either about to go on—or have just returned from—yet another vacation, often to the Disneyland Resort. We just can’t get enough! No two days there are the same, and our interactions with Cast Members and fellow Guests at the ever-evolving parks make each trip a unique adventure. Although each visit is different, the moment we step through those gates and “enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy,” that unmistakable feeling of being somewhere familiar, safe, and rich with years of joyful memories always greets us. It’s like coming home…but way more magical!
About My Disney Experience
My husband and I enjoyed countless Disneyland Resort visits, a trip to Walt Disney World, and a cruise aboard the Disney Wonder even before our son came along. I've happily assisted friends and family with planning the details of their own magical vacations, including booking the ideal accommodations and making the most of their time in the parks. I believe almost everyone can (and should!) make a Disney visit a reality, regardless of budget, special needs, or age of the family members. I've planned multi-generational stays at deluxe hotels, but also weekend getaways for couples on a tight budget. I've visited the parks as a child, a teen, a college student, a newlywed, a field trip chaperone, an expectant mother, a new mom, and the parent of an active toddler. I believe there’s no better place to make the magical memories that become a part of a family’s shared history than at the Disneyland Resort, where there’s truly something for everyone!
