About Me

My friends call me "Dr. Disney." Although my Ph.D. is in Human Development, sometimes it seems I spend more time planning trips for myself and my friends to Walt Disney World Resort! When I'm not planning my next trip to Walt Disney World, I work designing, researching, and evaluating technology for children. In my free time, I enjoy walking outdoors with my dog, playing board games, hosting parties, reading, and of course, planning my next Disney vacation.

About My Family

I live in Columbia, Maryland with my wonderful husband of 21 years, Joe, my fabulous 17-year-old daughter, Willow, and our lovable mutt, Stella. And yes, Stella is named after that fabulous hound from "The Princess and the Frog," because she was rescued from Louisiana!  Part of what is so special about Disney for us is that my husband and I grew our love of Walt Disney World together. We enjoy keeping up on happenings around "The World" and sharing these in our daily lives as a dose of magic. Our daughter has always joined in these conversations with enthusiasm and opinions. She is integral in planning our Disney vacations! Our extended family includes a grandmother and an uncle, both of whom have accompanied us on trips to Walt Disney World. Although our daughter is hearing-impaired, it does not slow her down one bit in life or on a Walt Disney World vacation.

About My Disney Experience

Although I came to Walt Disney World Resort once as a child in 1986, my true love for and addiction to Disney did not begin until adulthood. In 2001, my husband had a conference for work at Walt Disney World and asked if I wanted to come down and spend a few days after his work was done, and the rest was history. When our daughter was born, we realized that we would return to Walt Disney World again and again. So, when she was only a few weeks old, we became Disney Vacation Club members. I have been to Walt Disney World as an adult without children, as a pregnant woman and then breastfeeding mom, on a moms-only weekend to run a runDisney race, as a parent of a young child, with other families, as a couple on a "no-kids-celebration" getaway, and with extended family. We have stayed at many resorts at Walt Disney World, taken numerous sailings on Disney Cruise Line, and enjoy utilizing our Disney Vacation Club membership. I would love to help you plan your next Disney vacation.
