Rachel Swanson Erdman
I caught the travel bug at an early age as my grandparents traveled the globe and shared their journeys with us. Experiencing Europe during a semester abroad continued to spark my interest in travel. Upon graduating, with a degree in Geography, I began working as a travel consultant creating customized journeys for my clients. I continue to educate myself by traveling to new destinations & trying different styles of travel so that I can help guide you with your dream experience.
I have been an agent for over 15 years. I have lived in and experienced Europe first hand. I have explored the South Pacific with trips to Hawaii, Fiji, Tahiti, New Zealand and Australia. I love to continue to travel and learn so that I may share my experiences with my clients. My next adventure this fall will take me to Northern England and Scotland; a mix of independent travel and a guided vacation experience with Brendan Vacations.
I have worked hard to obtain my Accredited Cruise Counselor certification. To do this I needed to do course work, inspect a number of ships and also sail on a few cruises to experience them first hand. I have also completed my Certified Travel Associate through the Travel Institute and Travel Leaders Leisure Travel Specialist course. My river cruise through Europe was one of my favorite experiences thus far!
I love working in the travel industry is because it is always changing and evolving. Keeping up with the trends and changes keeps my job interesting. Continuing to train and experience new places helps to keep me on my toes and ready to assist you where you wish to go!
