Alaska and Group Travel Specialist
I was a young high school student when I went to France with my class and discovered my love of travel. It allowed me to meet new people, see history first hand, experience other cultures and have fun! I have been travelling ever since. I love to plan trips and share my knowledge about destinations. I have learned so much about people from travelling and everyone has a different idea of what they want to experience. Making decisions on which destination, hotel, activities, air schedule can become a little stressful to plan on your own and I love to get to know my clients so I can help plan a trip. I take my job seriously and am always learning by travelling myself, by attending classes put on for us by the cruise lines, hotels and other travel vendors, by inspecting properties myself whenever I go to a new destination and through internet training. I have extensive experience booking cruise vacations, as well as family, solo and group trips. In addition, I offer escorted trips for groups who want to have a travel professional on hand throughout the entire experience. I specialize in Group Travel (booking groups from 10 to as many as 500 on incentive, family, corporate and association trips). I am an Alaska certified specialist having sent hundreds of guests each year and travelling there myself 4 times. With 32 years in the business, I have many repeat clients and have experience booking the Caribbean and Mexico for the all inclusive experience, to Italy and other European destinations on tours and "on your own" planned itineraries as well as planning and escorting Christian tours to the Holylands. I keep notes too from my clients experiences so I can share those as well. I will share stories with you as we get to know each other and together we can plan that trip you have worked so hard for! I have a passion for missions too and work with several local churches negotiating and planning their group air travel. I travel on missions to serve those less fortunate. To me, travel is more than just taking off for a place you've never been before. It's about sharing new experiences with the people that you love, forming bonds and making memories. Travelling allows you to connect with others and can make a positive difference in your life. As I always tell my clients, it's time to go away! When you call me to book your travel I promise to listen to your wishes and to make personal recommendations based on my 32+ years experience. Call or email to set a personal appointment. And remember - the internet is for looking, a travel agent professional is for booking.
