I have over 20 years of travel planning experience, including eight years as a professional travel agent. I am a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge and have also completed training programs for Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and most major cruise lines. I take frequent trips to Walt Disney World and Disneyland and have participated in many runDisney events. I also enjoy the Universal theme parks and their larger-than-life thrill rides.

I am an alumna of the University of Nebraska and hold a degree in Business Management, and currently live in Plattsmouth, Nebraska, with my husband and three children. When I'm not exploring new travel destinations to share with you, I am usually found coaching soccer or basketball or cheering on the Huskers!

Client Testimonials

“Michelle has helped my family plan a trip to Turks and Caicos and Walt Disney World. What I appreciate most about Michelle is that she isn’t done once the trip is booked. She is constantly on the lookout for new savings and will answer any and all questions. Michelle not only helped us plan and book out trips but she was available throughout the trips until we arrived back home. She is an amazing travel agent.”

“From the start to the finish of planning our Spring Break trip to WDW, Michelle went above and beyond. It had been over 20 years since my parents and I had traveled to the parks, and it was my 8 year old daughter's first trip. We are usually cruise people, but since no ships were sailing and my daughter had been wanting to go, we decided to give the parks a try. She took the time to really get to know us as travelers in terms of recommending resorts and room types. When a discount showed up, she automatically applied it. Leading up to the trip, she answered all of my ridiculous newbie questions quickly and with just the right amount of detail. I also appreciated that she shared her cell number with me so that if anything urgent came up during travel, I could easily reach out. Our room was perfect, her suggestions about transportation had been spot on, her ride recommendations for our multi-generational group were excellent, and her dining recommendations were just right for our family. Her experience traveling to WDW and on the cruises meant that she had suggested we go to places that were new and fun while also meeting our expectations in terms of service and food.”

She is extremely knowledgeable and can answer every question. She responds quickly to my emails and that alleviates so much anxiety for me. I know she is keeping an eye out for discounts and ways to save me money. So happy TouringPlans started offering this service. I love to travel and am thrilled Michelle is there to help me.”
