For years a traditional "Brick and Mortar" retail travel business, Legendary World has transformed into a group of Travel Professionals with extensive travel and personal experience. We provide our clients a level of access and professional consulting services not traditionally found in the US. With our network of experts and contacts "on the ground", in destinations all over the world we can offer expert advice and excellent access to unique experiences.
I’m a traveler first. I’m one of the lucky ones where my passion became a job and then a career that has allowed me to travel the world. I will always be a traveler, but now I have the pleasure of consulting with clients to make their dreams, celebrations and aspirations become reality.
I’m also a wanderer, student of life, nomad and aspiring photographer! All of these passions and interests allow me to see the world in a different light and share them with my clients and friends.
I am blessed to work with people who are chasing a dream or looking to experience something personal. Whether it is traveling to Myanmar and Cambodia on an art exploration trip, a mother and granddaughter traveling to Paris to fulfill a special promise or a family traveling to visit ancestral homelands - it is truly an honor that I am able to be a small part of making the journey a life long memory.
Travel inspires, educates and changes people forever.
Creating Memories and Experiences that Last a Lifetime, that is my number one goal when helping my clients in their vacation planning. My beginning in travel started in 1993 as "just another paycheck" and quickly grew into an amazing career. I think of my clients as my friends, and I am so thrilled when they are able to return from a vacation having exceeded all of their expectations! Your vacation time is precious, and every minute should be rewarding!
My passion is working with group leaders and escorting theme cruises, like-minded affinity groups, corporate retreats-at-sea and non-profit fundraising cruises. There are many travel professionals who will say they are "experts" in these fields. With over 15 years as a Group Cruise Specialist, I can "Walk the Walk" and "Talk the Talk".
So if you are looking to plan your dream vacation or honeymoon, or discuss our group cruise program, I would love to speak with you.
I have been a travel professional/ cruise specialist for over 27 years. My passion is to make vacation dreams come true. From a couple's romantic getaway for two to a wonderful family reunion, I want my clients to return ready for me to plan their next adventure. I have completed training with Holland America, Princess and Crystal Cruise Lines and am a Hawaii Destination Specialist. To compliment my training. I have sailed on over 40 cruises to the Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, the South Pacific, Europe, Asia and Antarctica.
The world of travel has been a huge part of my life since I was a child. From Asia to Central America and so many places in between, these experiences have played a huge role in shaping the person that I am today.
Travel is one of my greatest passions so to be able to play a role in helping others have some of these same experiences is what I consider a career of my dreams.
I take great pleasure in partnering with my clients to ensure that every aspect of their travel experience exceeds their expectations.
I worked for the Tucson Unified School District for 25 years. During the last 10 years, I dabbled with arranging travel for family and friends because I LOVE looking up new and exciting places to go and ways to get there. I have since retired and I am making arranging travel and travel consulting my 2nd career. All of this leads to the goal of traveling myself!
Live, laugh, love. That is the motto that hangs on the wall in my home. What better way to help that happen that to help people plan trips that build lasting travel memories!
My husband Tom has been in travel for several years and our family was fortunate to have many travel adventures together. After a successful career in corporate America, I wanted to pursue my passion for travel. I love helping people plan their special trips for weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries, family reunion, and personal exploration. Hearing about trip highlights after travel is one of my favorite things about travel consulting.
In high school, I was an exchange student to Switzerland and that gave me a hunger to see the world. I’ve been blessed to see such exciting places in the world and experience the culture. History, religion, sports, music, dance, and architecture are all fascinating adventures to share with others. In my corporate job I also had the chance to manage large events involving travel, so I’ve learned what it takes to make a special event memorable.
If you are ready to plan your next start planning your next travel adventure, I hope you will reach out. I would love to work with you. My training has included becoming a specialist on multiple cruise lines and destinations. I’ve personally cruises over 30 times to Alaska, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Asia. My land trips have included South and Central American, Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
Through many years as a travel agent, I have truly enjoyed helping others to discover and experience the joy of traveling as I have enjoyed it through my own adventures. These travels and experiences working with clients, along with in-person and online training from vendors, have provided me with invaluable tools and a unique expertise to assist my customers in booking their dream vacations.
My certification and specialization in 24 destinations and suppliers allows me to truly personalize any vacation, honeymoon, anniversary trip, or family reunion. I always look forward to hearing about my customers' experiences, as they are memories that they, and I, will cherish for a lifetime. I look forward to working with you.
I love traveling! And I love helping couples, families, and groups plan their ultimate vacation, honeymoon, cruise, destination wedding or family reunion. I will be your Travel Advocate from the first time we meet until you return from your trip. I will give you personalized service and will handle multiple details and provide expert knowledge of many destinations. I love and truly enjoy getting to know my clients, so I can recommend the perfect destination or resort to fulfill your dreams!
I have personal knowledge of the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico, the Caribbean, Aruba, as well as many mainland U.S. locations, including Las Vegas and Disney properties. I love researching and visiting new and exciting destinations for my clients. If I haven’t been there, I know someone who has! Traveling with my family, I feel that I have become an expert when it comes to planning family trips. These individualized travel services are provided to you with no added fees and give you the security of planning with a professional.
In my spare time, I love to race sailboats, and of course, travel with my husband of 20 years, and my 2 teenage boys! I frequently travel to check out properties and find out the latest and greatest for my clients. I continually educate myself so that I can be the best travel consultant. Repeat clients and referrals are incredibly important to me! I would love to work with you!

I knew I wanted a second career as a professional travel consultant when I met the founder of Legendary World. Scott’s passion for travel is addicting. I believe travel is one of life’s ultimate joys. It never fails to thrill us, expand our perspectives, or fill us with wonder.
My first career I enjoyed owning and selling a successful business and medical management/marketing for a fortune 500 company. I was born in Arizona but now live and play in San Juan Island, WA with my husband Brian and our two dogs. I enjoy introducing my clients to places and experiences that most travelers only dream about.
