Where do you live? Marwayne, AB (approx. 25 min from Lloydminster)
How long have you been a travel agent? Four years – I’m still new!
What is your speciality? Family travel, leisure groups, destination weddings.
What do you love most about being a travel agent? Creating memories. I love hearing that I became a small part of that. I also love being able to make my own hours and being able to be there for my kids’ active lifestyles.
What's one travel trend you've noticed as of late? There’s a big interest in adventure travel and cruises. People are wanting to explore more.
Of all the bookings you’ve made, which itinerary and/or travel package are you most proud of? I’m very proud of all my bookings and my growing clientele and referrals.
What's your number one piece of advice to other travel agents? Take your time with everyone, listen to your client and offer suggestions. If they want quick and easy, they can do that on their own – they have come to us because of our experience and resources.
