Mary June Williams
Winchester, Virginia Travel Agent
Sandals & Beaches Honeymoons Destination Weddings
I have been in the travel industry since 1988. Over the years, I have enjoyed combining teaching school and selling travel. Having retired from 33 years of teaching, I now devote my retirement to travel for my clients, my agents and myself.
In December 2018, I was honored by Sandals Resorts in the Caribbean with a trophy at the STAR awards event in Jamaica. My name was called and I walked in front of 500 travel agents to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. What an honor to be recognized by my preferred supplier, Thank you Sandals!
In January 2018, I launched "Travel Talks" for consumers. Each month a new vendor comes to the agency to meet with consumers. Consumers can talk directly with vendor representatives: Ask questions, seek advise, and explore options.
In December 2017 I was invited and attended Sandals 2017 STAR's award event for outstanding Travel Agents. The event was held at Beaches Turks and Caicos.
In May 2017 I attended Travel Leaders National Conference in Orlando FL. As a result I made major changes at the agency. Our website was updated as was our invoicing software.
In June I traveled to Jamaica to Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals South Coast for my 5 year Sandals Weddingmoon recertification. I also made a commitment to become a Travel Leaders Destination Wedding Specialist. This is a 3 year project.
I do love to travel. The most extensive journey was 34 days at sea on Celebrity Solstice as a Distinctive Voyages Host for the back to back sailings around New Zealand and Australia. What a personal experience for me and a joy to represent vacation.com's Distinctive Voyages program. I then traveled on to China.
I'm constantly traveling to new destinations and various vendors in order to broaden my mind for options for clients
Even though I want to sell the world, one person cannot have that much detailed knowledge. My area of personal expertise is the Sandals and Beaches Luxury Resorts in the Caribbean. I can boast that I have visited them over 100 times and within the last 24 months have been to each one to see personally the updates and changes. At the STAR Awards ceremony December 2014, I was award the Chairman's Outstanding Sales Achievement Award Southeast in the Regional awards. What an honor.
I sell to clients but I also run a host agency and support my independent travel agents and employees who are under contract with Alpha Voyages.
What a busy retirement! Give us a call. 540-662-6279 opt 1. We work by private appointment in person or by phone. I want to personally get to know my clients and understand their travel dreams.
