My Background

Stay Balanced Travel specializes in travel to help you de-stress from your busy life, focus on your “why,” and reconnect with those you work to live for!

As a dairy farmer’s daughter, my upbringing instilled in me a passion for owning my business and a strong desire to explore the world to see the sunrise from different parts of the world. After years of owning an insurance agency, I had an “Ah-Ha” moment when a tragedy in our family occurred, and my husband and I lost both of our mothers within a few years of each other to cancer.

I quickly realized we had an unbalanced work-life schedule. We were missing life moments and memorable, once-in-a-lifetime travel with friends and family. Time is the most valuable resource, and you never get it back.

This “Ah-Ha” moment changed my career path, and I opened my travel agency Stay Balanced Travel. At our agency, I help busy professionals refocus on balancing their personal lives with their work schedules. If you’re inspired to strengthen relationships, laugh, and create memories with those you love, I can help!

I’m an excellent listener, and my service motto is, “it’s all about you and your travel desires.” As your travel coach, I provide tailored travel experience with an emphasis on your experience’s small details. I achieve this through relationships I have with hundreds of suppliers all around the world.

So where do you want to go? What are your bucket list destinations?

The path to your bucket-list destinations starts with a map. As a Certified WanderList Advisor, let me help you achieve your long-range travel dreams. The WanderList process helps save time and money by organizing your future travel plans. Vacations are no longer haphazardly planned. With the WanderList program, I help you and your loved one’s curate, budget, and make travel dreams become a reality.

Have you planned your bucket list trip or time with the significant people in your life?

It was a great pleasure to have Candius book my travel arrangements for my recent trip to Michigan. Candius provided excellent service. She promptly responded to required changes to the reservation; she ensured I understood all the details of my travel arrangements and provided me with great options. I would highly recommend Candius for your travel needs.

Candius researched every location on my voyage, scheduled airport transportation, hotel accommodations, excursions, updated any changes in flights along with names from transportation changes. Also was available anytime!!!!

Thank You

Candius was able to accommodate, design and coordinate 10 different people with 10 different ideas of destinations and activities. Because the game reserve in South Africa was purchased separately, building a trip around it could not have been easy, but Candius gave me a trip to remember. I greatly appreciate all of her diligence. Thank you!!!
