My Background

I was bitten by the travel 'bug' at a young age, 15 years. Following a semester abroad as an exchange student in France, the die was cast. After graduating college, I began my travel career attending Braniff (remember them?) travel school in Dallas. I was hired by Alaska Airlines then Pan Am. Following marriage, I wanted to remain close to home so I became a travel agent. I quickly learned it is a lot more difficult to know as much as an agent needs to know about everything vs one airline. I don't regret my career choice one moment. I am passionate about my profession, I love all things travel related, I have the perfect job, for me!
