Independent Travel Advisor – NYC

Get in Touch

I began my career in the travel industry over 32 years ago as a Reservation Sales Agent with Pan Am, making a move to Delta Airlines several years later. After a successful tenure at Delta, I became interested in the agency side of the travel industry. In 1994, I joined Valerie Wilson Travel and am now based in the New York City Corporate Headquarters. As an Associate Agent for VWT, I specialize in high-end, high-volume corporate travel and work with several shipping companies and investment firms. As such, my strengths lie in my expert knowledge of international rates/tariffs and command of Sabre GDS.

I have a true passion for travel and diving into international cultures. My passion has led me to become fluent in Italian and conversational in Spanish. Some of my favorite destinations are Italy, Russia, China, and Kenya for safari. I also love to cook, bringing recipes into my kitchen from all over the globe, and am an avid reader of Political and World Affairs!
