About Me

 I am a wife, mom, 2nd grade teacher, and lifelong Disney fanatic! When I'm not helping Guests plan Walt Disney World Resort vacations, you can find me and my family on the soccer fields, at church, or with our dear friends. Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, my childhood was filled with Disney magic. The books, films, soundtracks, and frequent trips to the Walt Disney World Resort helped shape who I am and taught me to believe in dreams come true and happy endings!

About My Family

 My Prince Charming and I are living our "happily ever after" with two little princes and one tiny princess. My husband is a Philadelphia sports fan, handyman, and super-dad, coaching both our sons' soccer teams. He is also a master of quickly folding a double stroller before boarding a Walt Disney World Resort bus! Our oldest son has high hopes of becoming a Jedi or paleontologist, so you can find him in line for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, or digging for prehistoric bones at The Boneyard at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Our youngest son is adventurous, brave, and willing to try new things. He's been not-so-patiently waiting to be tall enough to ride Expedition Everest for a glimpse of the elusive Yeti! Our newest addition is just "practically perfect in every way," and like mommy, she loves Cinderella Castle and "it's a small world."

About My Disney Experience

 My first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort was as an infant, and I have continued to visit "The Most Magical Place on Earth" during every phase of my life! 


 One of my fondest childhood memories was watching the Main Street Electrical Parade in Magic Kingdom Park with my mom and two brothers. We would stake out a viewing spot on Main Street, U.S.A. and eat hotdogs from Casey's Corner as we waited on the curb for the parade to start. When the parade music would begin, my mom always started to cry and I could never understand how she could be crying during our favorite family tradition! I couldn't wait to begin the same parade tradition with our sons when we planned our first family visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Our first evening in Magic Kingdom Park, we found the perfect parade spot, my husband went to get Casey's Corner hotdogs, and I waited patiently with our precious princes until the lights dimmed. As the first notes began playing, I felt hot, fast tears running down my face. I finally understood why my mom had been crying during all those parades! In that moment when the music swelled and I saw the anticipation and joy on my children's faces, I discovered what a privilege and gift it is to share such perfect Disney memories with those whom you treasure the most. 


 One of my favorite things about a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is that you never have the same experience twice! My family and I have a tradition of saying "hello" to Mickey Mouse at Chef Mickey's on our first day of vacation and saying "good-bye" to him at Town Square Theater on our last day before heading home. Even though this is a tradition we keep each year, every interaction is special and unique in its own way! Those and so many other magical experiences we've shared at the Walt Disney World Resort are forever etched on our hearts. As a member of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I'm so thrilled to be helping Guests create their own priceless Disney memories!
