About Me

By day, I am a full-time wife and mommy to four children. By night, I am a part-time nurse on a busy labor and delivery unit, where we help make miracles happen! I have made my home in Northwest Indiana for most of the last twenty years, though you can still hear a touch of my New York accent. When not planning our next adventure with Disney Vacation Club or helping a friend plan their own Disney vacation, you can find me cheering for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, reading, crafting, and spending time with family and friends. Recently, I have taken up running and participated in the 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon. I’m looking forward to earning my runDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal in 2015!

About My Family

“Far-off places, sword fights, magic spells, a prince in disguise…,” Belle’s favorite book in “Beauty in the Beast” perfectly describes my family. My prince was cleverly disguised as a computer nerd when we first met at a Notre Dame football game. We married in 2002 and together we referee lightsaber fights between our three school-aged sons and toddler daughter who joins the battle in her tiara. We enjoy traveling to visit far-off family and landmarks throughout the country, but of course, our favorite destination is Walt Disney World. We are a true Disney-loving family; someone is always watching a Disney movie, pretending to cast magic spells, dressing up as a princess or Buzz Lightyear, or making Mickey shaped pancakes!

About My Disney Experience

I grew up as a Disney fan, with my first visit to Walt Disney World as a baby in 1978. I was lucky enough to experience the magic of Disney vacations as a child with my family, as a teen with Disney’s “Magic Music Days” Program, and on a mother-daughter trip to celebrate my college graduation. As an adult, I have experienced Walt Disney World through various stages of life and with children of all ages. Purchasing Disney Vacation Club was one of the best gifts we could have given our family. It has allowed our family to vacation more frequently with its great value and added extra enjoyment with the spaciousness and amenities of the Disney Vacation Club Villas. Along the way we have made some magical family memories. First roller coaster rides and haircuts, birthday celebrations, hugs from our favorite characters, and simple Dole Whip breaks will remain in my heart long after my babies are grown. Their childhoods may be fleeting, but Disney Vacation Club Membership has given them a world of magic spells, wonder, and adventure that we plan to enjoy for years to come!
