My Story

Many years ago, I embarked on a journey that would forever change the course of my life and the mission of Time For You Travels. Even though I didn't realize it at the time, it was a pivotal moment, a turning point that would ignite a passion within me to help women prioritize self-care and wellness through transformative travel experiences.

At that time, I found myself at a crossroads. I had just gone through a divorce, ending a 17-year marriage. Simultaneously, I was in the process of adopting my daughter. She, my son, and my newfound responsibilities as a single mother demanded my unwavering attention and support. The divorce, though my choice, was emotionally devastating. I felt lost, sad, and utterly disconnected from myself, like I had never experienced before.

Yet, life had other plans for me. My children needed me more than ever, and I had a business to run with employees relying on my guidance. Despite the overwhelming challenges and the emotional turmoil that consumed me, I knew I had to find a way to put myself back together. For my children, for my business, and myself.

I decided to take a leap of faith and arranged for someone to care for my kids. With a heavy heart and a sense of desperation, I set off to my "happy place" – a serene hotel on the beach in Florida. There, I took deliberate steps to reconnect with myself. I indulged in retail therapy, strolled along the beach, and gazed out at the horizon, letting the soothing sound of the waves wash over me.

On the second day of my retreat, as I sat on the beach at the edge of the water, I found myself in tears. I prayed for a sign that everything would be okay. In that moment of vulnerability, I looked down, and there, scattered like a hidden treasure, were what seemed like hundreds of tiny unicorn horn seashells – one of my favorite finds. They were washing up all around me, a miraculous sign that touched my heart.

While my pain wasn't magically erased, I was infused with newfound strength and hope. I knew I could continue, that I could fulfill all the responsibilities and obligations that life had placed upon my shoulders. I continued my solo retreat, immersing myself in activities that brought me joy. My itinerary was all about me, a reminder that self-care was not selfish but essential.

Years passed, and life's demands continued to mount. I found myself teetering on the brink of burnout, overwhelmed by stress, and just surviving without much joy. It was then that I reflected on the profound lesson of that earlier transformative trip. I realized that, as women, we often give endlessly without replenishing our own reserves. Eventually, we reach a point where we have nothing left to give.

This epiphany became the catalyst for a fundamental shift in the mission of Time For You Travels. I made it my purpose to work with women, to bring awareness to the importance of self-care and wellness through travel and retreats. It's about embracing the journey to self-discovery, nurturing our souls, and finding the balance between giving and replenishing.

Time For You Travels is more than just a travel company; it's a commitment to empowering women to prioritize themselves, embark on transformative journeys, and rediscover the strength within. Join me on this remarkable adventure towards self-care and wellness, where you, too, can find your seashells on the shore – symbols of remarkable adventure towards self-care and wellness. It's time for you.


Prioritizing self-care and wellness should be a constant commitment in our lives, not a one-time endeavor. These practices deserve our attention every single day. Never allow yourself to reach a point of despair. Nourish your mind, body, and soul daily, ensuring that you can consistently shine your light in the world.
