Dina was born and raised at the Jersey Shore with the sand between her toes. She is a proud graduate of Rutgers, the State University of NJ, and holds a B.A. in Communication and a minor in Leadership Studies. She is a member of nationally recognized travel organizations, most recently accepted into the exclusive Romance Travel Forum. Dina is also a proud IATAN Card holder as well as a certified resorts and destinations specialist in countless areas.
Dina specializes in destination weddings, honeymoons, couples getaways, family vacations, cruises, vow renewals, family reunions, and group travel. Her focus, especially in the areas of romantic vacations, has led her to co-spearhead Stepping Out Travel’s Romance division.
Her career began in Trenton before moving her daily commute to Manhattan where she experienced many great years working in the public relations industry. It is here where she had the opportunity to really enjoy travel, represent travel, and appreciate how important it is to explore the world around her. During her time in Manhattan she met her hubby which led them back to the Jersey Shore where they’ve grown their love, their home, their family and their desire for travel.
With the help of her wonderful MIL, a veteran travel specialist Dina made her first travel booking in 2008 which was her own honeymoon. This exposed her to the world of romance travel, destination weddings, vow renewals, couples trips and so much more. It is here where her start as a travel agent began!
Many years have passed since that first booking and Dina has grown from working as a part-time agent to a full-time Travel Specialist and Team Leader with Stepping Out Travel. Dina spends time staying on top of the ever changing travel industry through ongoing professional development and trainings. She has been endorsed by her clients on TheKnot.com and has an informative Facebook group where she shares travel information daily to her clients directly.
On February 14, 2017, Stepping Out Travel launched the Romance division with Dina as one of the Romance Travel Specialists.
