Executive Travel Consultant
My name is Ashley. I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. I currently reside in Richmond with my husband and my Maltese named Kylie. My passion for travel began at a young age when my parents took my brother and me all over the Continental U.S., Hawaiian Islands, and Caribbean. I was fortunate to find a soul mate who enjoys my passion and loves to explore. Both being teachers, we have the entire summer break to explore. Children are in the near future, and I hope to continue traveling and in turn share these experiences with them as well. After years of planning wonderful vacations for friends and family, I finally decided to pursue the travel industry as a career and joined Easy Escapes Travel Inc. in January 2006.
Over the past few years, I have been very fortunate to visit several tropical destinations, such as the Bahamas (Grand Bahama Island, Nassau, and Paradise Island), St. Thomas, St. John, Bermuda, Aruba, Curacao, Antigua, Cancun, Riviera Maya, Dominican Republic, and the Hawaiian Islands (Oahu, Maui, and Kauai). I have also toured Costa del Sol in Spain - this trip took me to Seville, Granada, Malaga, Marbella, Rhonda, Gibraltar, and Tangier, Morocco. I also have cruised over 10 times (Eastern Caribbean, Western Caribbean, Southern Caribbean, Mexican Rivera, and Bermuda) with three popular cruise lines, Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Carnival. Although nothing can top a week long cruise sailing crystal blue waters, Bermuda, St. John, Hawaii, and Aruba are by far my favorite destinations. If I am not on a white sand beach or cruising the Caribbean, you can find me on the ski slopes of Park City, Utah. Everybody needs a mixture of snow and sun!
My travels have also taken me to several “hot spot” cities within the Continental U.S., which include the following: New York City, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Orlando, Miami, and Ft. Lauderdale.
Everyone needs to be able to relax and get away from it all every now and again and I would be happy to plan your own perfect vacation! My specialties include the Hawaiian Islands, the Caribbean, ski destinations in Colorado & Utah, and all cruises (even Alaskan & European itineraries).
