Dream Vacation and Special Needs Travel Specialist

When I was a young girl I dreamed of traveling to exotic and beautiful destinations. Finding a career in the travel planning arena was a dream come true! have been in the travel industry for 3 years with 11 years of prior experience in meeting planning logistics booking air, hotel and ground transportation for pharmaceutical professional conferences. I am a detailed person and planning travel for large groups is very demanding and takes a lot of attention to detail to be successful. 

I am a Certified Cruise Counsellor (CCC) with Cruise Lines International Association - CLIA, and a Verified Travel Advisor (VTA) with the American Society of Travel Advisors - ASTA and am working towards my Certified Travel Associate degree with the Travel Institute. Recently I became a traveler with special needs which led me to certify to help others to experience travel with similar challenges. I am certified with all the cruise lines and learned about their destinations.

I would say my favorite domestic destination is the Hawaiian islands because of its natural beauty. My favorite international destination is Mexico because of its food, service and endless activities. My favorite resorts are the Palace properties where you feel like a true royal guest. I have not had the pleasure of discovering my favorite cruise line yet but I have met some great people. One of my favorites so far is John Diorio from Virgin Voyages.

Having started my travel business during Covid times, I took the chance to learn all that I could about destinations and suppliers available to me. I have networked and created relationships with business development managers at resorts such as Palace, Barcelo, Secrets, and Dreams so that I can bring my clients the best offers. 

I have a passion to experience river cruising in Europe and am working to become an expert in that area too! I was excited to enjoy a river cruise on the Danube in Europe with Emerald Cruise Lines in 2022. 

I LOVE bringing happiness to others - I am a servant at heart that loves to have fun and I would love the opportunity to bring you happiness through a dream vacation!

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into the honeymoon! We had an absolute blast and met some truly amazing people along the way! We made a surprisingly large network of friends during our stay and according to some of the couples involved (members of the resort) our group was the best they'd ever experienced! We look forward to visiting El Dorado again and will definitely reach out when the time comes! - Will K 6/28/2021

Trip was fun, but because our group made it fun.
I felt that she needs to be more knowledgeable of the resort and all they offered.
This resort had little entertainment, one bar at night, no beach umbrellas, lots of children in bar area, only thing was most of the personal was very nice.

Donna Hubeler responded:
I am so sorry for the issues you experienced at the resort. Yes I agree, I didn't personally know this resort. I could only go by my research and other reviews which I assure you I did prior to offering it to your group. I have alerted other agents to steer clear and made management aware that the poor treatment of guests that are not members needs to be addressed. Thank you for your honesty. I hope you allow me the opportunity to make it up to you. My goal is to deliver a quality experience.

All the details were taken care of!
Donna was terrific! Very attentive and conscientious. We really enjoyed working with her. She was very knowledgeable. If she didn't know the answer right away she was resourceful and answered our questions quickly. We were taking a cruise and there were a few questions about the accessibility of the ship. Donna "had our backs" with the cruise line and worked hard for us to get answers and get things resolved. We look forward to planning our next vacation with her.

Cabo Secrets.
Dee was helpful planning and booking our all inclusive vacation. We are frequent travelers and she helped me find the best deal. She was very helpful in making sure we had all documents for international travel including traveling with a pet. I appreciated hard copies of all important documents for travel. I would recommend to a friend and would book another trip with Dee!
