A lifetime of travel experiences

My degree is in education but I decided early on that being a teacher wasn't my calling.  Being a travel agent was my passion.  Being able to share an adventure, a wish fulfilled, or a experience that changes lives is really what my travel passion is all about.  And lucky me!  I've been doing exactly that for the past 40 years.  
And feel that I am just hitting my stride.  I discovered Europe as a young girl in my twenties when I taught school for the Air Force in Germany.  it was my first experience being out of the country and I couldn't believe that how life changing it was.  I decided that I had to find a way to keep traveling when I returned to the United 
States and enrolled in the International Academy of Travel.  After graduation I worked for two agencies in the DC area, one specializing in corporate travel and one in vacation travel.  I spent every possible minute getting better at what I did.  I became an expert on the Caribbean and discovered my love for France and Italy.  My husband over time became wheelchair bound and I found a way to be an expert on traveling with disabilities.  My friends wanted me to take them to some of my favorite places and I became a group leader building the trips myself using tour guides and tour companies that I trust.  I still use my own unique blend of guides and companies.  
As my clients aged, I continued to offer my own unique travel style and now my groups happen to luxury destinations and to luxury ships 2 to 3 times each year.  My clientele continues to grow by word of mouth.  I opened the agency in 1983 and we joined what was then Ask Mr Foster, now Travel Leaders, in 1988.  The agency does it all as we are in a small area in Eastern Washington state.  We have won an Award of Excellence every day for the past 15 years.  I'm proud to be a part of this industry and to share the world with my customers and friends
