1. Where did your interest in travel start? 

As a child, I would often lose myself in the pages of National Geographic and travel magazines at the library, dreaming of exploring the world. The vivid images of exotic destinations, the stories of adventurous travelers, and the promise of new experiences always left me feeling hopful and curious. The desire to travel has stayed with me over the years, and I still feel the same sense of wonder and excitement whenever I think about all the places I have yet to discover.

2. How long have you been in the industry and where did you get your start? 

I have worked in the travel industry for over 30 years. Currently, I am employed at a travel adventure center where we not only sell adventure equipment but also provide training on the usage and activities of the equipment we sell. We also offer recommendations and advice to individuals regarding their travel destinations.

3. Where is your favorite international destination? 

I recently visited Nova Scotia, Canada, and was struck by the breathtaking scenery and charming small towns. The crisp and cold weather was a refreshing and enjoyable change from the sunny climate I'm used to in Florida. Despite the chill, the locals were warm and welcoming. I loved exploring the local cuisine and chatting with friendly shopkeepers and townspeople. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience that left me with a newfound appreciation for the beauty and diversity of Nova Scotia.

4. Tell us about some of your greatest accomplishments to date personally and professionally. 

I love sharing the things and places I’m passionate about on my social channel Confidence and Adventure .I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world and have made some lifelong friends. It has allowed me to work with some of my favorite brands and visit some of the most amazing destinations and locations I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to work with or visit otherwise. It has truly changed my life and made me more confident, outgoing and excited for what's to come. 

5. What have you learned from traveling the globe? 

Wow, that's a great question! There is so much to learn about the world around us. It's truly magnificent and a sight to be seen. Traveling can open your eyes and teach you new things, which can make you happy and excited to be alive! It's truly life-changing. 

6. Why do you believe other people should travel more? 

I have learned that there’s so much to see and experience. The world is a beautiful place and we all need to experience everything that it has to offer.

It also brings partners and families closer together, by sharing the experience of travel together.

7. Who is your favorite travel buddy? 

My husband's Jimmy Fortner. We have known each other since we were both 15 years old, and we have been partners for the passed  20 years. We got married 14 years ago, and I consider him to be a true blessing in my life. I couldn't imagine traveling with anyone else but him.

8. Where are you traveling to next? 

Our next vacation will be a cruise to the Caribbean with our extended family and friends on the world's largest and most thrilling cruise ship. The Icon Of The Seas. I can't wait
