 Years' experience:  22+


I began my guiding experience at the Molly Brown House Museum and the Hiwan Homestead Museum, and concurrently, as a local step-on guide leading Front Range and Denver tours.  In 1994, I founded Sample Colorado Travel Club and Tours, doing day and multi day trips with members of the travel club, using my connections with travel agencies.  For two years I was employed at AAA as a domestic travel planner, routing trips for customers in and around the US and Canada.  In 2004, I opened and am still operating The Serendipi-TEA Shoppe in Littleton, CO, where I not only feed and serve customers, but also offer bits of Colorado history along with providing a tea/history experience.  On occasion I offer local day trips to various venues.  It is my vision to combine the two businesses - tea and travel - and make a "special adventure" from them.
