Experiential, Honeymoon & Disney Travel Specialist

My work in travel started in 2014 with Disneyland Parks where I was a VIP Tour Hostess.  At Disneyland Parks, customer service and knowledge is paramount.  As a VIP Tour Hostess, those skills are refined to work with visiting dignitaries, celebrities, families, and business groups.  I provided detailed planning to suit the specific needs of each party I served, in addition to being their expert guide and personal concierge, ensuring a unique and unparalleled experience.

The skills I gained at Disney along with my personal passion for travel, history, and culture brought me to Refined Journeys in 2017, which has been a natural fit.   Apprenticing under veteran travel professionals with a wealth of knowledge along with my continued education in a variety of travel styles has provided me with the ability to be a professional travel consultant.

I of course enjoy sharing my extensive knowledge of Disney by planning trips to the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World, and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, as well as vacations with Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney.  Having now also visited Hong Kong Disneyland, I have a personal goal to visit all Disney Parks.

In addition to our agency offering full travel services, I specialize in honeymoon planning for the soon-to-be-married and newlyweds.  Having recently been married myself, I know how much time and energy goes into planning the perfect wedding.  Just as your wedding is unique to you and your partner, your honeymoon should be designed in a way that it will create memories that will last a lifetime.  Our Honeymoon Gift Registry service allows your wedding guests the opportunity to provide the gift of lasting memories.  Our online registry makes it easy for gift giving at any dollar amount they choose and provides you a gift you can truly use.

Travel is ever-changing and continual education on different styles of travel and destinations is what sets us apart at Refined Journeys.  We travel ourselves to gain and offer first-hand destination knowledge.  In the 2 past years, I have visited Oahu, Puerto Vallarta, Calgary, Banff, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Disneyland, Montego Bay, Negril, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Yosemite, San Francisco, Washington DC, and toured cruise ships from Royal Caribbean International, Crystal Cruises, Princess Cruises, MSC Cruises, and Norwegian Cruise Line.  My honeymoon took me to Hong Kong, Bangkok and through Thailand on a Star Clippers tall sail ship.

Our affiliation with Travel Leaders Group and Traveller Made worldwide consortia gives us the added benefits that could be upgrades, hotel or ship credits, complimentary breakfast and/or food and beverage credits. We are an Authorized American Express “Pay with Points” agency, allowing us another way to serve your complete travel needs.

My goal always is to build lasting relationship with my clients, to listen to better understand their wants and needs, and to know enough about them to guide them to new and wonderful experiences in travel.  This relationship, along with our knowledgeable team and travel partnerships allows me the resources to create an experiential travel itinerary that is unique to you. This is the most rewarding aspect of being a travel consultant; crafting an itinerary that exceeds the expectations of my clients and hearing what a wonderful time they had upon their return.  I look forward to working with you to create your next adventure.  - Shera

Married in SF

Reviewed By Palomino - Clovis, California | Traveled to San Francisco ~ California ~ USA
We knew Shera was in this line of work being personal friends with her and her family. All that aside, professionalism was never in question and she’s knowledgeable and reliable in her services. Shera is one of the single most welcoming people we know and she did great work. She gave us peace of mind when our party had to make a slight amendment. I’d gladly work with her again when tending to my traveling.

She planned it so I didn't have to

Reviewed By Jose - Clovis | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
Working with Shera was an absolute pleasure, she was enthusiastic, efficient, and answered all the questions I had. She had great suggestions and explained the entire trip process wonderfully. I used her services to a take a "minimoon" as she called it, a last minute honeymoon and at the time I had no idea where to even begin. Shera planned the entire thing for me so the day after my wedding it was just pick up an go. If i ever plan on going somewhere in the future I will definitely use her services again.

Awesome wedding trip!

Reviewed By Sue - Gaylord, Michigan | Traveled to California ~ USA
Shera was a great help planning our trip from start to finish. She found our flights which would have been a challenge for us. We were flying from Illinois to California. After a stay in California we flew to Arizona. We stayed in Arizona then flew back to Illinois.
Shera also found the accommodations for us. She was a lifesaver. We appreciate all her time and help.

First out of country trip with our littles.

Reviewed By Briparkins - MO | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
This was our first trip out of the country with our 3 children all under 4. We had questions out the wazoo. Shera always answered the phone and every question. She was prompt, organized and delivered us a trip that our family absolutely loved. I would like to add that she pretty much designed the trip for us which was so impressive. We told her what we were wanting and she gave us just that and more.
