I absolutely love traveling and going to countries I’ve never been to, as well as seeing and learning about different cultures and trying new experiences! That is literally what led me to the desire of becoming a travel agent! Not only do I love to travel but I found out that I love coordinating and organizing travel plans with my friends. Some tasks in life seems like work but for me planning trips and vacations come naturally and feels fulfilling. Now that my children are older and I have more time to focus on my personal goals, I dream of doing something that I’m passionate about. I sit back and think how gratifying it would be to create the dream vacation for people and knowing it was because of me!
I started my career in the travel industry as an avid traveler excited to explore the world at every opportunity! Through my many vacations I became an expert on the consumer aspect of travel from customer service to accommodations to finances associated with travel.
In order to improve my personal travel experiences, I started to do research on the travel industry. This initial hobby turned into a passion to help advance the travel industry having both a customer’s vantage points and professional knowledge.
It was then that I embarked upon the formal training to become a certified travel advisor. I started my own travel agency, 1 Love Cultural Tours & Travel,LLC and have assisted many fellow travel enthusiasts to make some of their most treasured memories on the trips I coordinated for them.
I have recently had the honor of being appointed Vice President of Membership with the Delaware Valley Chapter of American Society of Travel Advisors STA. In this role I am now performing an integral role in political advocacy for travel for both consumers and agents. This role has opened a whole new perspective of the travel industry affirming me a wealth of knowledge to utilize within my own travel agency.
I have the tools to be your best personal advocate to help ensure the best travel experiences of your life!
