Mission, Kansas Travel Agent
Beach Vacation and Destination Wedding Specialist
I have been involved in the travel industry for over 20 years beginning on a part time basis while working in the field of Interior Design/Sales. My passion for travel eventually took over and I made the move to become a full time travel consultant.
Although my travel experiences are diverse, I specialize in Destination Weddings, Honeymoons, Individual and Group Travel including Family, Social and Incentive groups.
I have many certifications for completing various trainings and specialist programs, etc. However, I feel my most valuable experience comes from having traveled extensively to destinations in which I specialize. These destinations include the islands of the Caribbean, Hawaii, Tahiti, Mexico, Costa Rica, the USA, Ireland, France, and various cruises. Whether staying on the property, setting up extensive property visits, experiencing exciting tours/excursions in the destination itself, having firsthand knowledge is the best way to know and understand the products and to be able to plan and create the perfect dream vacation for clients.
Certifications and awards include: Certified Sandals Specialist, CLIA Accredited Cruise Counselor, Classic Vacations Star Performer, AMResorts Master Agent, Palace Resorts Specialist, Disney's College of Knowledge Specialist, and St. Lucia, Hawaii and Florida Destination Specialist Certifications.
Here is what my clients are saying.......
Kimberly Shannon was fabulous to work with. She steered us to the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall, which provided us with exactly the vacation we wanted last October. When Hurricane Matthew's path northward was still in doubt, she not only managed to shift our vacation 10 days to the right, she shifted everything (flights, hotel, transfers, and trip insurance) at no increase in price PLUS she added Club MoBay and had our room upgraded to a Junior Suite at no cost.We're already working with her on our next vacation!
