My Travel Agent Life
I started my career in 1987 as an event planner for American Express. After ten years, I decided to switch into the area that has always been my true passion – travel. I joined Tzell Travel Group in 1998, and 20 years later I’m still here because it is a great place to work and I love what I do.
The first trips I booked at Tzell were for my corporate clients, and they are still a big part of what I do every day. I expanded into booking leisure travel in 2003 and enjoy the balance that brings to my work. Every trip is different, and that is what I love.
One day, I might be sending a corporate manager to Chicago or booking a family trip to a beach resort in Cancun, and the next, I could be planning an immersive cultural and culinary trip like the one to Sicily that I planned recently for a couple on their honeymoon.
I have traveled across Europe, including Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, France, the U.K., and the Netherlands. I’ve also been to every Caribbean island and all major Hawaiian Islands. I also count an Alaska cruise and a fascinating trip to Argentina among my travels, and often draw on my personal travels when planning a trip for a client.
My goal is to make their travels as luxurious and comfortable as possible and to ferret out and arrange wonderful experiences for my clients that are truly unforgettable.
