Hello, my name is Carissa Sticha and I started working in the travel industry several years ago, and love everything about my career. Whether I am soaking up the sun in the Tahitian Islands, traveling through the rugged outback of Australia or reading about my next adventure, the knowledge I gain on my personal endeavors allows me to help you plan YOUR trip of a lifetime.
I have too many personal favorites to list, but a few that come to mind are the Hawaiian Islands, Jamaica and Bora Bora (Tahiti)—I think I was meant to live on an island somewhere, how I ended up in Minnesota, is unknown! The different cultures, the beautiful scenery, and the relaxing atmosphere make a wonderful vacation!
In addition, I have had the opportunity to visit most of the popular destinations in Mexico—Riviera Maya, Cancun, Cozumel, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas and each area has a charm of its own. I have also been to 30 of the 50 states and enjoyed everything from New Years Eve in Times Square to the magic of Disneyworld in Florida.
I also specialize in destination weddings and honeymoons. I have helped many couples plan their dream weddings/honeymoons and would love to help you as well. From taking care of the wedding details to the travel arrangements for your guests, I can help make your destination wedding a dream come true too!
Keeping up-to-date on the happenings in the travel industry is as important as travel itself. Continually going to seminars and training while specializing in specific travel destinations and types of travel is an important part of being a professional travel consultant.
