I have been a travel professional since 2008. I take great pride in providing my clients with the best possible advice, insights and planning for their travel.


Now on to some insight into what It's a Snap Vacations will do for you.


There's nothing quite like cruising down a serene river and into a historical European city. From the ship you can see the magnificent sites of the city as you glide across the water. When you actually step off your ship into port and soak up all the sights, sounds, and life surrounding you, that is priceless!


On a river cruise through Europe, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. These trips combine the convenience of unpacking only once with the luxury and professional services included with your river cruise.


Learn about the history of each city through included locally-guided tours in each port. Walk on and off the ship according to your own schedule. Want to have lunch at a sidewalk cafe? Interested in hiking to the top of a local castle? It's your choice.


I am a river cruise expert and a Free Independent Travel (FIT) European specialist. A passionate, lifelong traveler, I have explored over 22 countries and spent over 10 years working as a Certified Travel Agent.


As a former elementary school teacher, I especially enjoy introducing my clients to historic locales. And yes, I know there are many ways to see Europe and other parts of the world.


I'm experienced in booking rail travel in Europe, as well as car rentals overseas. I can arrange land stays in either major chain hotels or locally run small inns.


I also book travels to Hawaii and Alaska, both land tours and cruises. I have organized multi-generational Caribbean cruises and Disney Cruises, as well. Disney's Aulani in Hawaii offers the perfect experience for a wide range of ages.


There is more to creating the perfect trip than finding the lowest price. Understanding the many components of your vacation and taking the time to learn the why behind your wants and your needs allows me to guide your choices. Putting all the pieces together to create your adventure is my passion.


When creating a custom vacation itinerary for you, one of my goals is to provide you with a personal connection and professional guidance that is lacking in the world of Internet booking. I look forward to creating the vacation of a lifetime for you.


Over the years, I have created wonderful vacation memories for honeymooners, families with children, multi-generational groups, empty-nesters, and retired couples.


Regardless of age or group size, the common threads my clients and I share are open minds and hearts to the spirit of surprise and adventure that makes a vacation truly a wonderful lasting memory.

Travel Makes the Best Memories

Looking back at my travels I remember so many fun, surprising, and horizon-expanding events. I remember cruising down the Danube, exploring local handcraft markets, discovering local cuisine, and crossing wide-open countryside that was once an armed border crossing.

Then there was the time our little Mini-Cooper almost ran out of gas in the Scottish Highlands. The one local store had to unchain the gas pump. Yes, travel makes wonderful memories.

Travel is also great fun to anticipate. I am so looking forward to sailing on the inaugural Viking Ocean ship, the Viking Star. Exploring the Baltic Sea for 15 days—priceless memories!

It was special to help put this trip together for you and family. There were a lot of moving parts in this trip, and one broken train. I appreciate your patience as we waited out some refunds. And I sincerely look forward to working with you in the future, retirement opens the doors to wider horizons.

Amazing Trip!!!!
She was phenomenal. Our airline requirements were daunting and she worked her magic to get us the flights we wanted. Our tours in Israel and Jordan were magnificent.

This was the trip we wanted -- and it was perfect!
Janet knows her stuff! We had superb accommodations and tours. She cheerfully made changes in our itinerary (back and forth), advised us as to what would work best and made great suggestions. She works quickly and everything is correct. Janet has planned trips for us before, and we know from past experience that when an unexpected problem arises, she is right there to fix it.
