Bliss Travel Experiences LLC, an independent affiliate of Gifted Travel Network
Arlington, VA United States

After working in banking for 19 years, I started Bliss Travel Experiences in September 2014. It’s been the best decision I’ve ever made – helping people to best utilize their well-deserved free time to have the ultimate vacation experience. I take advantage of multiple learning opportunities myself, as I love to travel. I believe that experiencing different destinations helps me understand what will work best for my clients – and since I can’t be everywhere, I have destination specialists help me as well!

I love to incorporate concerts and sporting events into travel experiences. Bliss clients have seen Coldplay in Zurich, the Women’s World Cup in France and U2 in Dublin. Foodie clients have had chefs do cooking classes at their Tuscan villa, and wine-lovers have traveled on Bordeaux river cruises to find that perfect Grand Cru.

My biggest compliment is getting a referral or repeat client, and the reviews my clients send truly make all of the work worthwhile. I’ve built my business this way and do very little outside marketing. Most of my clients are connected in some way to other clients – to me this is the best way to know that I’m providing true value that is appreciated.

In 2018, I was nominated and was a finalist for Signature Travel Network’s Michelle Morgan award, sincerely the most touching experience I’ve had since starting Bliss.

I have been a part of the Chairman’s Club for my host agency for the past 5 years (ranked #9 in 2020). This puts me in the top 10 of over 800 travel advisors, winning the #1 Top Producer award for land vacations in 2017.

I was selected to attend ILTM Cannes luxury travel global meeting in December 2019 as one of only two travel advisors selected by my host agency.

I was selected to attend GTM West as one of the 100 advisors by Global Travel Marketplace in 2017.
