My official career began in high school, my senior year in Birmingham, Alabama when I landed a job after school doing the outgoing mail for Brownell Travel. I listened and read about all the wonderful destinations in the world and decided that was what I wanted to do – TRAVEL!
During college at Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri I worked part time at Stephens’s Travel Office. After graduation I worked for American Airlines in St. Louis until I married. I then took on the most important job of my life – being a full time Mom to three wonderful children. As my youngest was entering her senior year of high school I knew it was time to get back into the field I loved.
Fortunately, I had a friend who owned a small travel agency and thus had my foot in the door. I have worked for several local agencies enjoying great friends in and out of the business. Most of all, I have developed a loyal client base which I am most grateful for.
As I wind down my career, I look back and think how lucky I have been to see most of the world just as I had dreamed I would when I was a young high school senior. Dreams do come true.
