Lorraine Martinez

Pembroke Pines, Florida Travel Agent

Family travel consultant and Europe specialist

I was born in New York City and early on I was interested in the different cultures that were around me speaking many different languages. From an early age I experienced a yearning to see the places that I would hear people talking about.
I moved to Florida and experienced again many different cultures and languages.
I studied anthropology and Psychology in college which furthered my interest in other cultures and travel. I married and had children and my husband and I had a business for many years and I would arrange travel for the company. We sold the company and I decided to further my education and earned Travel Agent Certification at Florida International University. I worked as an intern in a Miami Lakes travel agency and upon graduation was offered a job there. I started by doing the accounting for Trams and collections. I was a quick learner and because of my own extensive travel and my new aquired experience I became a travel consultant. I stayed there for 8 years until the office was sold to Travel Leaders and the office was moved to Weston. During this time, I traveled all over the world to many exotic destinations including Antarctica, Australia, Asia, New Zealand, Africa, South America. I have traveled nearly every year to Europe and the US.
I enjoy helping families decide what is best for them such as escourted tours, cruises or independent travel.
I like the challenge of complex trip planning and doing the logistics required to get people where they want to go to see and experience their travel desires.
I am proud to say that I have worked with some of the best travel professionals in the industry.
