About Me

Originally from Ontario, Canada, my husband's job took us to live in Mexico for 6 years, and we recently moved to the United States.  When people ask where we're from, we just say "North America"!  I love anything Disney, and travelling all over the world, and I usually have several trips in various stages of planning on my calendar.   I also love planning surprises for others -  however, my family recently confessed to me that I have surprised them with Disney vacations so many times, they are not really surprised anymore - that won't stop me from trying though!  I truly love introducing Disney to families who have yet to discover the joys of a Disney Parks Vacation.

About My Family

We are an adventurous family who laughs a lot and can find fun in just about any situation! With our kids off at college now, we value our travels as a time for our family to reconnect away from our busy lives. We are so proud of the fact that our children mastered the Spanish language during our time in Mexico.   Living in a foreign country has definitely opened our eyes to new cultures,  which has fueled our desire to see more of the world - Adventures by Disney has been a huge part of that, and we have visited South America, Europe, South Africa and North America with up, Southeast Asia!

About My Disney Experience

My first visit to Walt Disney World was at age 2 1/2, five months after the Magic Kingdom opened!  Disney vacations have always been an integral part of my life.  We are definitely a "Disney Family."  I've taken more than 50 trips to Walt Disney World, 5 to Disneyland, 8 Disney Cruises, 7 Adventures by Disney trips and we are Disney Vacation Club owners at Animal Kingdom Villas and Aulani.  In our circle I am definitely known as the go-to girl for all things Disney; family, friends and my husband's co-workers have all come to me for advice and help to plan their Disney Parks Vacations.  Living and travelling internationally has definitely given me extra knowledge, which I'm happy to share.  Being chosen for the Moms Panel is a dream come true - I'll now have the opportunity to share my passion for Disney vacations with people around the world!
