Gluten Free and Celiac Travel Specialist

Being a travel agent is a truly wonderful career for me. Having been an agent for more than 40 years I am incredibly passionate about my work and look forward to planning new adventures for my clients. Throughout these years in the industry I’ve had the opportunity to travel extensively to many destinations around the world. These firsthand experiences are incredibly important as an agent because I am able to speak confidently with my clients and they can trust that I have their best interest in mind while helping plan the perfect vacation. From Hawaii to Italy and from cruises to all inclusive resort vacations, I’ve helped my clients plan truly unforgettable vacations. As a gluten free travel specialist I work closely with clients to plan custom vacations that fulfill their dietary needs. With years of experience in the industry, the relationships I’ve created allow me to be able to suggest many gluten free travel options my clients may have never even thought of. If my clients are traveling to a foreign country, I like to supply them with a “gluten free dining card” in the language of the country they are going to. I also work directly with executive chefs in advance of a trip to ensure that all of my client’s dietary needs are taken care of so nothing will take away from an amazing vacation! As the Director of Leisure Development for Travel Leaders in Framingham, MA I greatly enjoy working with my clients because every day brings something new! Wherever you are looking to travel to next, I look forward to helping make your travel dreams come true!

First time visiting Italy and it was amazing!
Lesley was a wonderful resource for our recent trip to Italy. As a family of 4 (2 members that require gluten-free food), Lesley calmed all our nerves about how we would find gluten-free resources in Italy and provided all the help and resources we needed for an amazing trip. With tours, hotels, train travel, boat travel, private drivers and four cities visited there were a lot of moving parts to this trip and everything went off without any issues. We were able to focus on the beauty of the area without worrying about minor details. Lesley's knowledge about how to navigate gluten free in Italy was invaluable and she was a great resource for what we should do and see as well. We look forward to working with her in the future!

Not just a Travel Agent...but a Friend!!
Lesley has been a dream to work with. She will gladly go the extra mile for her customers (she makes you feel like family). She will take care of every detail, and make sure that your trip is the best it can be. If we are unsure about going to a particular location she will give you her best advise based on her knowledge of you, and she has never steered us wrong.
Once Lesley even made us last minute reservations at a Sandals resort even after she had gone home for the day to make sure we got the special promotional price that ended that day.
Top notch service every time!

Perfect Getaway for Parents Needing a Break
Lesley was great to work with. She really helped us to quickly sift through the information to find the right fit for my wife and I. We were looking to have a break from being parents of 4 small kiddos, and Lesley dialed in the right location and level of quality for us to really get the rest we needed. She gave us all the ins-and-outs of the place we chose making the whole experience easy and hassle-free. She even followed up with us afterwards to see if it went as well as we expected, which it definitely had!

Globetrotter
Lesley has been extremely helpful in planning my trips since I'm the type of client who likes to go off the beaten path. Lesley has always taken on the challenge of customizing my trips with professionalism and gives great feedback/suggestions on my trip planning. I always come back happy and ready to book again!

One of the best trips of our lives.
Lesley was easy to work with from the second we were in contact. She listened to our needs and wants - then personalized the trip to our exact specifications.

We will be working with Lesley again in the near future to book another fantastic trip. Oh yes, she was also able to upgrade our hotel at the last minute to a 5 STAR experience.

OUTSTANDING!
