Before I became a travel advisor, I planned travel for friends and family in one form or another for most of my adult life. I dreamed of becoming a travel agent when I was younger, but they seemed to have gone out of style. I was content to scour the web for my travel planning and instead became a massage therapist. When my body decided I had done my last massage, my cousin introduced me to Andrea and Anywhere But Here Travel. I started as a file clerk and rapidly worked my way up to Office Administrator or “Awesome Office Gal” as Andrea often refers to me. A year later I completed the Travel Consultant Course and passed the Travel Associate exam in April 2018. Since then, I have completed several specialized training courses and earned certifications with cruise lines, destinations and hotels. Now I get to use my years of experience planning travel and my newly acquired knowledge to help other people have amazing, expertly arranged travel experiences. My travel specialties include… Cruises Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Master of Adventure Princess Cruise Line Certified Expert Norwegian Cruise Line Master’s Degree Oceania Cruise Line Certified Specialist Ponant Cruises Academy Specialist Caribbean Travel Specialist Puerto Rico Travel Specialist Jamaica Travel Specialist Mexico Travel Specialist Cruise Line International (CLIA) Member Disney College of Disney Knowledge Graduate Playa Resorts Specialist Outrigger Expert Advisor AMResorts Master Agent Pleasant Pro Academy Ambassador Travel Specialist since 2018
