The Travel Agents at Travel by Nelson
I have been in the travel industry since 1980 (minus a few kids and a detour!), and have owned Travel by Nelson since 1999. My personal passion for travel led me to the industry, and my goal to instill this passion in everyone I meet has kept me in the industry! I love hearing back from my clients about the wonderful memories they have made on the vacations I sent them on.
I specialize in tropical vacations, specifically Mexico and the Caribbean. Mexico is my personal favorite destination. You can't beat the people, weather, beaches, and resorts offered there! Because of my love for the Caribbean, I made sure to take advantage of various classes and educational offerings, and became a Certified Sandals Specialist, AM Resorts Master Agent, and a RIU Specialist, just to name a few. If I could go anywhere in the world, where I haven't gone yet, I would go to Tahiti-it truly sounds like a personal slice of heaven and romance!
Outside of owning Travel by Nelson, I spend time with my husband, three kids, and three grandkids. I enjoy happy hours with friends, of course traveling, and reality TV.
I truly love what I do, and wouldn't trade it for any other job!
My 23 years in the travel industry have made me a specialist in Disney, Riviera Maya, and Hawaiian vacations-and my certifications for those and many other destinations go on and on! Everyday in the travel industry is a new adventure, and I love that things are constantly changing. Making people's dream vacations come true is an amazing, fulfilling experience.
Disney is my favorite place to travel to! It is so magical, you get lost in the ambience of the parks. I would love to go to both Australia and Alaska, but haven't made it there quite yet.
I spend my time with my two boys in Cottage Grove, and my amazing boyfriend Tim. I love to read, and bake, and anything that involves my family is time that I cherish outside of work.
I have been in the Travel Business since 1995 making dreams come true! Whether it be your honeymoon, family vacation, dream vacation or just a long weekend trip, I am here and ready to make this journey the very best.
I am a Certified "Aussie" Australia Specialist, Hawaii, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Dominican Republic, Cayman Islands, Club Med, River Cruise, Disney Specialist, and Royal Caribbean Cruise, MSC Cruise Specialist, and in the process of achieving my New Zealand "Kiwi" Specialist Certificate.

I fell in love with travel after my daughter and I decided to take a random trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico! Between exploring Old San Juan ruins, walking up and down their glorious blue cobblestone streets, and zip lining through the rain forest we caught the travel bug. This incredible experience sparked my passion for travel, and I joined Travel By Nelson in 2017!
I previously worked as a Special Events Manager. Working directly with sports franchise teams and their individual players. Being on that level in the event industry taught me a great deal about planning, and properly executing my events.
I have been able to take this knowledge and put it into the planning of your life experiences, to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime!
