Meet the Vacation Experts

Our Property Experts focus on providing the best level of care for our guests and properties. They are the first line of communication and service when an owner needs anything for their property or a guest has a customer service need at the property. The level of service includes on-call emergency response after hours for our properties, property inspections & maintenance and personal property attention. 


I am the Vacation Company Office Manager and also the Property Manager for our Sea Pines properties and owners. I have worked in this industry on Hilton Head Island for over 30 years (including sixteen 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!


Having been a Hilton Head Islander since 1968, I have seen many, many changes over the years. Our Island however remains as pristine and beautiful as it was “back in the old days”. Growing up here was special and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. While not at work, I enjoy working in my greenhouse, taking long walks on the beach, practicing yoga, and spending time with family. My passion is interior design, so I’m thrilled to be working here at The Vacation Company as the on staff Interior Designer helping our owners with renovations and upgrades.


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 also manage our new Vacation Company check in APP!

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.  


I relocated to Hilton Head in 2005 from Ohio for my husband’s job. Growing up in western Michigan on the lake, we were excited for the opportunity to get back to the beach and raise our two sons and give them that small town feel we had growing up. With a strong background in customer service and real estate, I joined the Vacation Company team in 2017. I am the in-house property manager for Palmetto Dunes where I lived for 11 years. I love the Lowcountry for its laid-back vibe and the friendly people. in my spare time I like to spend time with my family, go to the beach, boating or explore neighboring areas. I would love to help you plan your next vacation to Hilton Head and hopefully make it one that you will choose 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 in Hilton Head for eight years. I am originally from Phoenix, Arizona. I have lived in many places choosing Hilton Head as my forever home! I love the nature and running the paths throughout the island. I came to the Vacation Company in April 2018 and enjoying being a part of such an amazing team.


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.
