What does this designation mean for you? It means that whether you're wanting to take the kids to one or more of Orlando's theme parks - Universal Orlando Resort Specialist here!, or if an ideal family vacation means an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean, I have you covered.

I can tell you which hotels will accommodate your large family, suggest which excursions your little or not so little ones would enjoy and which resorts offer babysitting/child-care services so that you can have a quiet dinner alone with your significant other.

Universal Orlando Resort Specialist

Whether you're a Wizard looking forward to trying your new wand or a Muggle anticipating your first sip of butterbeer, visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must for a HP super fan!

As a Universal Orlando Resort Specialist, I can fill you in on all the tips, tricks and must see/do's through out all of Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. 

Did you know that there is a place inside Hogsmeade where the line to buy butterbeer is usually a lot shorter?  Or which hotels offer unlimited express passes with your stay? How about which restaurants are a must not miss on City Walk? I do!! That's why booking with someone like myself, who has visited Universal more times than I can count and has gone through the training will make sure that your Universal Studios Orlando vacation is nothing short of EPIC!!

Certified Autism Travel Professional & Certified Accessible Travel Advocate

You should never feel that a family vacation isn’t possible just because you have a loved one that is on the Autism Spectrum.

Many resorts, theme parks and cruise lines are designated Certified Autism Centers. What this means is that at least 80% of their staff have been extensively trained and are fully dedicated in serving individuals with Autism. What this also means is that travel IS possible for your family!

 

As a Certified Autism Travel Professional certified through IBCCES, I have helped Autism families plan their perfect family vacations and I am ready to help plan yours too.

 

In addition to being a CATP I am also a Certified Accessible Travel Advocate, certified through the Special Needs Group. I understand that individuals with disabilities would travel more if their special needs were met. I am here to make sure that regardless of your disabilities, that you can travel safely.


Maybe you don't use a wheelchair or a walker in your everyday life but are worried about the long walking tour that your family plans on taking during that long awaited family vacation. I can help get that walker rented and delivered to your hotel so you don't have to miss out on those precious family memories.


*IBCCES (The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education) offers a certification program for travel professionals to better serve individuals and families with cognitive disorders, including Autism and sensory disorders. A Certified Autism Travel Professional is defined as a professional who has demonstrated that they are both knowledgeable and capable of providing support and travel related services to an individual on the Autism spectrum as well as their families.
