Recognizing the truth about ourselves is the starting point of all change.

I am the type of person who is always craving adventure – I like a challenge, and the adrenaline I feel with success. Don’t get me wrong – starting my own business had its up and downs, but I never gave up, and joining the travel industry has never felt more right to me. This is who I am supposed to be, and where I belong. I truly found myself.

My goal isn’t to have the top travel sales. I consider myself a coach (a leader) as I guide my clients to making the right travel decisions. I offer incredible travel and 5-star experiences, not commission driven sales pitches.  If an offer doesn’t make sense for you, I don’t book it.

I lived in Strathcona County most of my adolescent life. After high school, I began my career as a Legal Assistant. In 2010 my husband Jason and I started our family and welcomed our firstborn, Chase, and then in 2014 our daughter, Lily. 

I have always had an eye for travel. Back when I was in Elementary School I always had an interest in marine life; I would read books and wonder what it would be like to experience some of these amazing ventures in person. I am a girl with an undeniable passion for adventure, travel, and everything outdoors.

Although I did not achieve my dream of becoming a marine biologist it certainly has not stopped me from traveling and enjoying some pretty awesome destinations. I absolutely love to take a hot and sunny vacation with my family every winter; we are very fond of the Riviera Maya side of Mexico, and Hawaii. I am a bit of a sun worshipper and love a good all-inclusive resort where my husband I can take a break from our busy lives back home, and just relax!

Australia and Greece are on my bucket list. Some of the nicest beaches in the world are out there and yet to be seen.

For me, travel is living. It is seizing each day and making the most of it.

"Ashley was referred to me by a friend and I totally see why. She is fast, efficient and wasted no time so we wouldn't miss deals. The vacation we took suggested by her was amazing. It had everything we could dream of in Mexico. I'd definitely use her again."

"Ashley has been so accommodating and incredibly fast to respond during this crazy COVID-19 situation. She has handled our large group of 40 travellers (in both Alberta and Ontario) so well and can only imagine how much more she has on her plate. THANK YOU ASHLEY"

"Can't wait to be on that beach"

"Ashley helped myself and 15 family members of all ages find a resort that was in our budget as well as family and adult friendly. She basically worked all day and evening for 3 straight days finding this for us. Cant wait to be on that beach and will definitely use her help for future trips.
