About Me

I'm a born-and-bred Jersey girl, although I've called Michigan home for ten years and love our small town. As nursing director for a busy child psychiatry unit, I work with a caring and compassionate team to provide support to patients and families. Work can be intense, so I strive to find balance by prioritizing time with my family and friends. When I'm not in dance mom mode or planning our next Disney adventure, you can usually find me in the gym, lost in a good book, or snuggling with our three unruly dogs!

About My Family

My husband and I met as freshmen in college, started dating senior year, and married on campus two years later. He is the most patient and no-drama traveling (and life) companion you could hope for--with regular infusions of caffeine and carbs, he's game for just about anything!

Our girls are now high schoolers, and I'm often reminded of how quickly the years have flown since their first trip to Walt Disney World Resort at the tender ages of 3 years and just 6 months. Our oldest heads straight to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Expedition Everest, while her sister will always make time to catch a parade or show during her Disney day. We all agree that no Walt Disney World vacation is complete without a No Way Jose at Beaches and Cream, a round of miniature golf at Fantasia Gardens, and a spin on Mad Tea Party!

 

About My Disney Experience

One of my earliest memories is of sitting on the beach at the Polynesian Village Resort, watching the Electrical Water Pageant with my parents and grandparents. Since that first trip at the age of 3, I visited Walt Disney World again as a child and a teenager and discovered something new every time to enchant me. When I became a mom, I looked forward to the time when I could introduce our girls to the magic, too. 

Our oldest daughter fell in love with Beauty and the Beast as a preschooler, and I immediately began planning our first family trip, complete with a color-coded spreadsheet to help keep us organized.  We kept our plans simple to account for naps and nursing and had a princess-tastic experience that I still describe as magical.  From then on, we have visited at least once a year--each trip is different as the girls' interests change and expand. Our Disney vacations now include an annual action-packed trip to cheer on our youngest daughter's varsity dance team at their national championships!

Joining Disney Vacation Club was a logical step for our family, and it's a decision we've never regretted. In a full-circle Disney moment for me, we were able to choose the Polynesian as our home resort!  Since our first trip as members to Aulani in Hawaii, we've sailed on Disney Cruise Line and enjoyed amazing vacations with family and friends in many different Disney destinations. Becoming part of the planDisney panel is a dream come true, and I'm so excited to help others make their own magical memories.
