I am an incredibly passionate Certified Autism Travel Professional (CATP) with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) who specializes in autism travel. Although I adore helping all of my clients, I am most enthusiastic assisting families like mine as I am a mother of two awesome teenagers who happen to both be on the autism spectrum. My children are amazing and are as different and unique as fingerprints.
Making memories and traveling have been and continue to be a priority to expose my children to, not only the things that they love, but things that help them learn and grow! Travel has always been a passion of mine, but it hasn't always been easy. I have leaned a lot in the last 16 years about myself as well as my children, which has helped me become the mother and advocate I am today for not only my own children but other individuals with autism and their loved ones.
Traveling as an individual with autism or as a parent/family member of a child, teen or adult on the autism spectrum can be a difficult, frustrating and overwhelming process for everyone. Did you know that according to a survey given to 1,000 parents of children with autism, 87% stated they do not currently take vacations as a family? This hit home with me! Having a knowledgeable advocate by your side every step of the way who not only knows the ins and outs of your preferred destinations as well as the accommodations they offer - but also understands the unique struggles, has been a huge relief and value to so many of the families that I individually tailor magical vacations for.
If you would like an advocate on your side to assist you with the planning of your next adventure, you have come to the right place. Knowing what I know now through personal experience traveling with my own children with autism, along with my extensive specialized autism and supplier training, I would absolutely LOVE to help you plan your next family vacation - creating magical memories that last a lifetime. The best part is, if you book a vacation package with me - you will not pay a penny more than if you booked direct, however, the value of the services that I provide to my clients is truly priceless.
