“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

– Gustav Flaubert


Director/Manager of Leisure Travel 2000

I have worked in the travel industry for more than 3 decades, and specialize in custom trip-planning (to any part of the world), small group travel, cruising, and soft Adventure trips. I started Leisure Travel 2000 in the Fall of 1998 – we are an independent agency and member of the Travel Leaders Network.

Involvement in other aspects of the travel industry:
Long time member of Travel Leaders Network Canada, Council Member for ACTA Saskatchewan, Executive for SKAL Club Saskatoon (SKAL is a worldwide travel and tourism organization), and member of the 722 Breakfast Club in Saskatoon since 1999.

My husband, Friets, and I often host small groups together (you may get to meet him if you join one of our groups!). And while we’ve travelled extensively – we do still have many destinations to explore as we work on our bucket list!

Travel is a passion for me, and after all of my years in the industry I still look forward to each opportunity to help clients find that just right vacation choice.

Areas of expertise include: Avalon River Cruise Specialist, Oceania Cruises Certificate of Expertise, Globus Tour Expert, Adventure Travel Expert, Monograms Booking Agent specializing in the sale of Independent Travel, among others.

I invite you to give me a call – let’s have a chat about some areas of interest for your future travel dreams!


Independent Contractor

I have owned a highly successful travel agency for more than 25 years. We sold the agency a few years ago and are now focused on providing special hosting service to a variety of cruise and specialty groups.

I have cruised over 50 times and been on many cruise lines including Regent, Crystal, Silverseas, Seabourn, HAL, Celebrity, RCI, and others. I have been a successful concierge host on approximately 10 voyages.

I am a world traveller, an avid golfer and wine connoisseur.

Leisure Travel 2000 is an active member of TL Network Canada (North America’s largest vacation selling network), and ACTA (Assoc. of Canadian Travel Agencies, involved in setting standards of professionalism in the Canadian travel industry).
