A fun time in Palm Springs, CA.

My travel experience started in 1981 with Piedmont Airlines.  After 6 years I moved to California where with my reservation experience, I became a travel consultant for Desert Winds Travel in 29 Palms, CA opening a new area of the travel industry.  A couple of years later an opportunity opened and I moved to Tulip Travel in Palm Springs, CA expanding my education in more extensive and unique itineraries as well as Group Travel. 

My 11 years in Palm Springs, CA opened doors in incentive travel, negotiating contracts with international and domestic airlines, ground operators, and hotels around the world.  Also escorting many large and small groups on international and domestic tours. 

My time in California also gave me the opportunity to give back to the community by teaching at various colleges in Southern California.  The courses I taught were in Travel, Airline Computer Skills and Business.  This gave me a greater appreciation for the Travel Industry and all it's diversity.

Missing my father who lives in Middle Tennessee, I decided to move back to Tennessee 21 years ago.  I had worked with Annette Cagle, owner of Brandywine Travel, while I worked at Piedmontso it was only natural for me to call on her for a position in her orgnaization.  Thankfully an opening was available and since 1995 I have had the privledge to work with Annette.

My working with Brandywine Travel has been and is still one of my better moves.  I am the Group Specialist and Destination Specialist.  I enjoy putting together unique itineraries, whether the client is a first ime traveler or a seasoned one, each itinerary is an adventure.  Yes, I love what I do and look forward to hearing from you!
