​Meet Your Castle Concierge ​Mom

​Along with my experience as a stay-at-home turned work-from-home Mom, I've been married for nearly 27 years. In my spare time, I love to read, write, research, shop, travel, take long walks, bake, decorate my castle, watch TV and movies, browse bookstores, order in or dine out, plan parties, hang out with my mom friends, nap, and have long chats with my family. For the last ten years, my work has involved:

  • ​Inaugural 2008 Walt Disney World Moms Panelist. 
  • ​First Disney Cruise Line Panelist in 2009.
  • ​Served several more stints on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
  • ​Since 2011, as an Editor of the Disney Food Blog where I continue to improve my research, writing, and Disney planning skills.
  • Editor and Owner of TheCastleConcierge.com.

​​​Vacation Ideas

​​​Not only do I love to travel, I also like to share ​vacation tips. I'll help your family find ​deals so that you pay less and create more memories. ​With the help of my reviews, itinerary suggestions, and loads of pictures, ​you'll be on your way to your next destination.

Travel IS a celebration!

​Parenting Strategies

​When we brought home our baby after two months in the NICU, nothing prepared us for the 18-year rollercoaster-like journey. Empty nest now looms in our near future as our son goes off to college with three academic scholarships. ​We share our failures and successful strategies.

​​Empty Nest

​​That's right. We're going to be empty nesters very soon. Follow our journey as we shed tears and adjust to this new ​adventure. 

We dream about vacationing in the off-season again, a respite from teen angst, and a less cluttered home.

What will it REALLY be like?
