Operations Manager, Travel Agent
I have been a part of the travel industry for over 30 years and have extensive knowledge in planning incredible and memorable vacations. Born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, I moved to the United States in 1987 and went to Travel School since I always had a passion for travel and learning about new places. After finishing, I went to work for a travel agency in downtown Miami called Brickell Excecutive Travel where I stayed for over a year, moving later to Four Corners Travel for about 6 years. In 1993, after getting married I briefly moved to Caracas, Venezuela for a year and a half where I worked for a Travel Agency, learning how different the travel business is handled in Latin America. Upon returning to the United States, I worked for a few years as an Independent Agent giving me the flexibility to spend time with my kids. I joined Travel Leaders in 2007 as an Independent Agent and in 2008 started working in the office as both an Agent, doing cruise vacations, FIT's and Escorted tours for individuals, groups and families and also had a role as Executive Assistant for the administration. I now manage the Agency.
Throughout the years I've attended many seminars, on site visits to hotels, ship inspections and online classes to keep up with the industry and have cruised on several cruise lines and destinations. I have traveled to many places in the Caribbean like San Juan, Puerto Rico, Punta Cana, Colombia, Portugal, Israel ,Turkey, Greece, France, Spain and Germany and Alaska
