About Me

No matter where I go, I have a Disney coffee mug or water bottle in hand. It's just one of the little ways I show off my love for the Mouse! By day, I am a community manager. But by night, I play chauffeur for my daughter, bake for my husband, and catch up with friends over dinner. I am a social media enthusiast so you can find me online virtually all the time. I love a challenge too - I'm training for my second half marathon, after running my first two years ago for charity, an accomplishment of which I am very proud!

About My Family

Even though my family lives in the Rock and Roll capital of the world, we still long for vacations to Disney and time on the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios. My husband, Tim, practices architecture, preserving historic buildings in Northeast Ohio. Our eight-year-old princess is a true Renaissance girl. She is a Girl Scout that loves basketball, dance, and reading. And now our family is complete with Lady Katrina, a black Lab rescued from the New Orleans area after the devastating hurricane of 2005.

About My Disney Experience

I have visited Disney World through many phases of my life. I have fond memories as a toddler riding on Dumbo with my Dad. But I also have experience taking a baby in a stroller and my Mom in a wheelchair into the parks. There is so much to Disney. It can be overwhelming. But I often find myself helping others navigate through the details so they can find just the right magical vacation. Planning a retreat can be just as much fun as the trip itself!
