Joan Qualls here - I’m the group travel specialist behind Tasteful Voyages, and I’m here to help you grow your business in downright delicious ways. How did I get here, planning group travel? It was not a straight line! For 30 years, I was in the healthcare industry, working my way up to a position as a finance executive. Turns out, combing through complicated hospital contracts is great practice for planning group travel -- you can count on me to read the fine print, juggle all the complicated logistics, and smoothly manage the challenges that group travel presents! When I wasn’t knee-deep in healthcare numbers, I was indulging my passions: travel, food and wines. I firmly believe the best way to explore and expand these passions is through travel. I’ve taken cooking courses all around the globe, from Chicago to Tuscany, Barcelona to Abruzzo, La Jolla and aboard a ship in the Eastern Med. I’ve toured and tasted at vineyards in France’s Loire Valley, Italy’s Chianti region, Portugal's Douro, and bright, young vineyards up and down the U.S. West Coast. And I’ve sipped brews in iconic locales, like the beer gardens of Belgium and the Heineken brewery in Amsterdam. If it makes my taste buds sing, it makes my heart soar — and that’s why I love working with business owners in the food, beverage, and hospitality industry, like you.
