Group Travel and Europe Specialist
DREAM ~ EXPLORE ~ FLOURISH sums it up.
For 34 years, as I taught elementary students, I would share about the wonders of our world. Now, as a travel advisor I get to send my clients out to explore the world!
My belief is that our lives are amazingly enriched when we travel.
The first step involves allowing yourself to DREAM of the places and experiences you want to have. Create that Bucket List.
Next, call us and let us help you plan your adventure. Let yourself EXPLORE.
Finally, the memories and photos of new experiences that you have embraced can only make your life FLOURISH. You are more than you were before... enhanced, more alive, more aware.
One of my strengths is my ability to listen to my clients and work closely with them in finding the perfect adventure. We collaborate on all aspects of the trip: budget, wish list, realistic expectations, and enhancing the experience. My clients find me very accessible and very approachable.
Embracing 21st Century technology is an important asset in the travel business. As part of my career advancement as a teacher, I pursued and achieved my Masters Degree in Educational Technology. I love learning about and applying new techniques that will add to the travel planning experience. I jokingly say that I am "living the iLife" because I love all things Apple and make sure that I have whatever it takes to keep in close contact with my clients and I am only a click away.
I have recently escorted several groups to Europe- Italy, Ireland and a Mediterranean cruise were a part of these itineraries. For years I took elementary children on hundreds of field trips and now I am doing it all over again! This time, our destinations are a little more exciting and we've traded the lunch boxes for gourmet dining.
As you explore options for an agent to help you with your next adventure, look for someone who will treat this trip as if it is her own. I take pride and care with every step of the journey.
Happy Clients ...
A garden in France is a photographer's dream
We traveled to Ireland under Laurel's watchful eye and are so happy we did. She answered every question and concern before we left, and was a happy and attentive traveling companion throughout our trip. I will definitely consult with her when we're ready for our next trip. ~ Gloria Loring
Laurel is a joy to work with! When I sought her help with travel planning, she (& associate Bev) always paid close attention to my needs and requests, and fulfilled them flawlessly. Laurel is intelligent, thorough, creative, fun, ALWAYS reliable, an excellent communicator.
