A graduate of IGA, I am a Certified Tour Guide and a Certified Tour Manager/Director, and I'm also RMGA Certified. I have been working since graduation as a Driver Guide of a fourteen passenger mini-bus and I have worked as step-on guide for local and mountain tours in Colorado. I organized and guided private tours for a variety of organizations and individuals. I have been a docent for the Molly Brown House Museum for 6 years.
I was raised in Chicago and know the city of Denver very well. As a widow, I am willing to travel to other locations as a tour director/manager or guide. I have traveled to all states except Alaska and Hawaii, as well as Europe and the Scandinavian countries. I am very reliable, enthusiastic, energetic, love the tour industry, and always willing to learn.
