My first travel adventure was when I was 18 (other than trips in the family car). I flew on the first non-stop flight from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Oslo with my grandfather on Northwest Airlines. After booking my flight I had my mother call the airlines almost on a daily basis (what’s the in-flight movie, what kind of food will they be serving on the flight, etc). When I have people booking their trips I have a lot of patience since I remember vividly what it was like to be new to the travel scene.
After graduating from travel school in 1984 I started helping people in their vacations (at least 50% of them were Las Vegas since that was “the place” to go). The travel business has gone through many changes over the years and is constantly changing. Hidden corners of the world are opening up possibilities to travel, business meetings are held in resort locations instead of at their headquarters, people need to get away to regroup as a family or just to take a break from the stresses of life.
I enjoy helping the family traveler in making a memorable holiday, and also the business traveler who needs to attend a workshop. Every day is different which makes it fun to come to work.
