I began working in the cruise industry in 1986 as a Shore Excursion Manager onboard with NCL. My shipboard shore excursion career spanned the next 9 years with Royal Viking Line, Sea Goddess and Ocean Cruise Line/Pearl Cruises. In 1995 I moved to a shore side position when I was asked to join Silversea Cruises to head up their shore excursion department. A few years later, I was recruited by Radisson (now Regent) Seven Seas Cruises to run their global shore excursion department and remained with them until the end of 2004.
Between 1986 and 2004 I travelled extensively on cruises and site inspections all over the world allowing me to get a personal knowledge of hundreds of ports and excursions.
In 2005, MyExcursions was launched with my wife Dinora. We have developed a product to meet the discerning needs of guests wishing more personal attention in planning their custom or exclusive programs around the world.
I bring to MyExcursions over 15 years of experience in finance, accounting and logistics. I graduated in 1989 with two Bachelor Degrees – one in Marketing and the other in International Business.
When in 2005 my husband Tim asked me to join him with the inception of MyExcursions, my concern about placing all eggs in one basket was quickly dispelled. It soon became apparent that we had made the right decision, and we have found a niche in the market in providing clients a top notch service when it matters the most. As many of you may only visit a destination once, it is my job to ensure that your experiences meet or exceed your expectations and that all the details run smoothly.
I wear several hats, running a family, a home and the back office of MyExcursions confirming services, and handling all the financial aspects of the company. I ensure each one of our bookings is treated with the highest level of quality and give it the attention it deserves.
When we have time Tim and I along with our children, enjoy traveling the world exploring new destinations or revisiting some of our favorite places to brush up on what’s new – or still ‘old’! Whether we travel far or near the experiences are always enjoyed.
In realizing our dream with MyExcursions we are building a boutique company which meets our own expectations of customer service providing a flexible and personal attention to planning custom and exclusive programs around the world for our clients.
