It’s a Disney Life!


As a Southern California native, I grew up with Disneyland in my backyard.  As such, Disney has never been just a place to visit.  It has simply been a way of life.  My first visits to the House of Mouse were before I could walk, and I have never wanted to stop.  Whether it be Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Aulani, or the Disney Cruise line, I have been blessed to be able to travel to all things Disney well over a hundred times over the years with my family and friends.  


In 2007, I discovered that I could Run Disney and it opened up a whole new world to me and my family.  We caught the running bug when we ran the Disneyland 5K for my oldest daughter’s 10th birthday.  To say the rest was history is an understatement!  I have accomplished more than I ever thought was possible.  I have run all of the former Disneyland races as well as Marathon Weekend (5K, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge, and the Chip and Dale Relay), the Princess Half Marathon, Wine and Dine (as well as the Race for the Taste 10K for you diehards!), and have gone Coast to Coast to Coast multiple times.  It has truly been a family affair with my husband and three girls, and some of my favorite memories have been seeing them cross the finish line and achieve their goals. 


Ultimately, I was inspired to come full circle and become a Disney Cast Member. I earned my ears and had the honor of providing the Disney difference by making Magical Memories for guests for nearly 9 years.  Now, as a former Cast Member and a Disney College of Knowledge graduate, it would be my pleasure to share my knowledge, expertise and love of Disney with you to help make your vacation dreams a reality.  Whether you are looking to plan your first trip, a quick getaway, a family reunion, or the trip of lifetime, I would be honored to help you make magical memories of your own.
