I am a co-founder of CastleChat and TravelVibz and a mother of two. I started CastleChat as a blog after having trouble finding vacation options due to my children's food allergies. After several wonderful trips to Disney, I moved to the Orlando area with my family in 2012. I enjoy spending time with my family and taking every opportunity to visit Walt Disney World and take Disney cruises from nearby Port Canaveral. I am a meticulous planner by nature and have a passion for helping others plan their perfect vacation. I especially love working with families who have food allergies.

I was first introduced to a Disney park when I was in 1st grade. My family moved to southern California and we went to Disneyland frequently.  It was then I fell in love with all things Disney. After moving back east, I started going to Disney World and have gone there countless times in the past 20 years. My family has gone at least once a year in the last 8 years, since my youngest was an infant. I have been lucky enough to spend a month of my winters in the Kissimmee area the last couple of years. Disney has become a big part of my family's life.  My 2 children have grown up going to Disney World, Disneyland and their favorite, Disney Cruise Line.  But Disney can be overwhelming!  I love helping people with their vacations; I will help alleviate your worries and lead you in the right direction. I can do as much of the planning, or as little, to make your vacation as magical and memorable as possible.   If you want a true Disney lover to help plan your dream vacation, you have found her.

I’ve had a love for Disney since I was little.  I was blessed to visit at least every two years as a kid and then at least every year since my honeymoon in 2006.  In the past few years we’ve made it to Florida twice a year including getting to take my 14 month old daughter at 7 and 13 months.  Additionally, I’ve gotten to enjoy magical trips with my husband to Disneyland and on the Disney Cruise Line.  Are you looking to do a romantic couples trip, an adults getaway, a big family get together, the Flower & Garden Festival, Food & Wine, a Halloween or Christmas trip or maybe a visit with young kids?  I’ve done all of these and I can help you make a Disney trip that’s just the right fit for you.  If this is your first visit, or your fiftieth, I would appreciate the opportunity to help you plan your Disney adventure!  I love making Disney dreams come true for others as much as I love visiting myself.  Let me put my Disney expertise to use for you and your family.

My love of Disney started at a young age watching Disney Movies at home on Sunday evenings with my family. The more experience I have with Disney World the more I fall in love with it. I have two family members with food issues and Disney is so accommodating that it makes our vacations pleasurable. As a stay at home mom of two teenage boys being a CastleChat vacation planner is a great opportunity for me to help others plan their dream vacations. I love Disney and spreading my love of Disney by helping others with their plans.
