Our Vacation Experts focus on providing the best level of care for our guests and owners. They are the first line of communication when an owner or a guest has a question. Local to Hilton Head Island, our vacation experts know all the nuances of the Island and are available to help you find the perfect vacation home for your family and your budget. 


I am the Broker In Charge at the Vacation Company and also the Property Manager for our Sea Pines and South Forest Beach properties and owners. I have worked in this industry on Hilton Head Island for over 33 years (including twenty with The Vacation Company) and love working with guests to find their perfect vacation spot and with owners in helping maintain their properties and maximize their rentals. In my time away from work I love to travel with my husband throughout Europe and the Caribbean, and I also love to hang out at our beautiful beach on Hilton Head and just chill. I would love to share my knowledge with you!


In 1992, I became the first employee of The Vacation Company and am now a major shareholder in the company. We have built an inventory of quality homes and villas and a staff that truly wants to help you enjoy your vacation. We know how to help you, and we know our properties. I am especially familiar with our large, luxury homes and can explain the many amenities they offer. Just ask us!



I have lived on Hilton Head Island for 20 years and have worked in customer relations for most of my career, I love working with people and making them happy. Working at The Vacation Company is the perfect place for me, assisting guests with reservations and explaining all the wonderful vacation options Hilton Head Island offers is very gratifying. It’s not a job, it’s fun! I am married to a wonderful man and we have two grown children who both live in Charleston, SC. In our spare time we enjoy our boat, fishing, relaxing at the beach and biking. Our favorite vacations are snow skiing destinations. I can’t wait for YOU to be the next one I talk with about designing your perfect Island vacation!


Hilton Head Island has been my home for twenty-three years, the last eighteen in Sea Pines. I joined The Vacation Company in 1996, took a break to be a soccer Mom, and have now been back to make reservations, assist owners and guests. My little soccer players are now big soccer players and keep me busy after hours. I also volunteer coach middle school volleyball at St. Francis Catholic School in the Fall. I have a wealth of knowledge about our island and its vacation rentals with special expertise of the North Forest Beach, SeaCrest Resort and the Sea Pines areas.

I am originally from Delaware and have lived on Hilton Head since 2013. Three years after graduating from college I was ready for a change of pace, and I chose to venture to Hilton Head. I had never anticipated being in property management until I found my home at The Vacation Company in 2015. Being at the Vacation Company has taught me that no day is the same, but if you love your job and the people you work with you will always be successful. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends at the beach or on the boat.  


Originally from Grand Haven, Michigan My husband and I have been lucky enough to call the Lowcountry home for over 15 years and raised our 2 sons here. With a strong background in customer service and real estate, I am thrilled to be a part of the Vacation Company team since 2017. I am the in-house property manager for Palmetto Dunes and mid-island properties. What I love most about living here is its laid-back vibe, the weather and the beautiful landscape. In my spare time I like to spend time boating with friends, traveling and taking day trips to surrounding areas. I would love to help you plan your next vacation to Hilton Head and hopefully make it one that you will want to come back to year after year.


I've been lucky enough to call Hilton Head Island my home since 2009. Growing up in Ohio, I grew very tired of winter so the beach sounded like a great change! I was a teacher for 10 years in Ohio. Working in the vacation industry fits perfect because I like to help people fall in love with the island the way I did. I've been with The Vacation Company for a little over a year and they are by far the best company! 

I love spending time with my two dogs, Tucker and Tipper. My favorite things to do on Hilton Head are going to the beach, biking, dining at our great restaurants and boating...which is by far the best way to explore this beautiful place we live. 


I have lived on Hilton Head since 1981 and have been with The Vacation Company for the past 15 years as the Accounting Manager.  I have a daughter and granddaughter who also live in this area.  In my time off I enjoy being on a boat and reading a great book, enjoying the time with my family and my two dogs, Schotzey and Starr.


Originally from the Pittsburgh area, I have been blessed to call Hilton Head my home for almost 11 years now. I spent my summers on the island while in college at Penn State and decided to move here permanently upon graduation. After several years of working in the food and beverage industry, I decided to further my education and pursue a career in Accounting Services. I have had the honor of calling The Vacation Company my home since May 2017 and I couldn’t be happier. Being part of such a wonderful company has shown me that you truly can love your job. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending my days with friends and family on the beach and traveling to new destinations. 


After vacationing on Hilton Head for 11 years, my husband and I moved our family to the low country. My sisters and their families and my parents followed. I am so blessed to live in this beautiful part of our country with most of my family. Working for the Vacation Company I have the privilege of helping families and friends find the perfect vacation retreat. With so many amazing properties and owners, every day is an adventure. After years of healthcare and hospitality, I am truly enjoying property management. I look forward to helping you today.


I moved to Hilton Head Island as a teenager and a few years later started working in the hotel industry. Eventually, I moved to Atlanta and then Greenville, SC in positions with Sales, Customer Service, and Administration. A recent opportunity to move back to the island has allowed me to begin living my life like I am on vacation every day. I have one daughter that is engaged and lives in New York City, and another daughter that goes to college in Vermont. They both enjoy the switch to flip flops when they come home to visit.

I am so grateful to be working for a company that believes in outstanding customer service and has high standards for the homes they rent. It is my goal to help guests find their Happy Place.


The island always calls you back is such a true statement. Hilton Head Island was a yearly stop for my family, attending the PGA TOUR tournament at Harbour Town Golf Links each year. It not only provided some wonderful memories but in years later it would be the spot I would meet my now husband and get engaged! My first stint on the island started after I was working for an event management company traveling through the US. When my travels finally ended, I was lucky to be offered a job with a multi-sports boarding school stationed on the Island. It was a perfect fit as I played collegiate golf in college and I was continuing to work in not only event management but also networking throughout the process. I immediately fell in love with this 13-mile wide piece of land and all it has to offer. As interests grew I knew it was time to strengthen my professional background in the marketing world. Searching to expand their brand, I was recruited to develop the marketing department for the South Carolina Golf Association in Columbia, South Carolina. So much professional and personal growth took place in Columbia, but the island was calling us home. I accepted the Marketing Director position, joining with The Vacation Company in May of 2021, and am thrilled to help grow this amazing company while marketing this special place. 


Originally from St. Louis I first came to the island for an internship the day I graduated from Mizzou. I fell in love and officially made Hilton Head my home in 2010. I have worked in nearly every aspect of the vacation rental industry and in 2021 joined my husband at The Vacation Company as the in house property manager for the North Forest Beach area. We are so blessed to live in such a special place and it is a joy to help guests plan the perfect vacation and assist owners with providing top-notch accommodations. I am so grateful to work for a company that truly cares about their guest's experiences, owner's best interests, and employees well being. I have two young daughters that keep us busy outside of work. Between soccer games and dance recitals, we enjoy spending time with family and friends at the beach or pool and chasing those beautiful low country sunsets. 

Originally from the Poconos in Pennsylvania, I have called this beautiful island "home" for the last six years. After vacationing here for over ten years my family moved south to start a new chapter. In 2022, I joined The Vacation Company and have been so blessed to work here. I look forward to helping make your dream vacation become a reality! During my time off I enjoy cooking, fun in the sun with family and friends, traveling with my wonderful husband, and most importantly a good pun!
