    Karen started in this business as a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines in January 1971 and flew the friendly skies for 7 years. She found her home with Boca Raton Travel & Cruises in January 1993 and describes it as the best!

    She is Manager of Leisure and Cruises and basically works with anything that floats. She prides herself in matching each and every person to the cruise of their dreams! Be it two people, a family reunion or celebration, a short getaway, or maybe a World Cruise, cruises are her specialty. Karen most recently sailed aboard the Crystal Symphony Canada/New England cruise from NY to Montreal. Crystal, being one of her favorites, is as wonderful as ever and then some.

    Even though cruising is near and dear to her heart, Karen also enjoys booking tours, Tauck being one of her favorites. She likes the way Tauck takes care of her clients, just as she does!

    Karen said that it is so difficult to select a favorite destination, but her heart goes between France and Italy as she just loves both! Don’t forget to ask Karen about some of the exotic destinations that have become so popular including Myanmar, Antarctica, Iceland and New Zealand.

    Karen has received several certifications from all the major cruise lines.
