My Travel Agent Life

I’ve taken an interesting journey that led me to becoming the successful travel agent that I am today. I grew up in Chicago but eventually moved to North Carolina with my family. I stayed there until college and then spent a year studying in South Wales in the United Kingdom. That was the year I began traveling more seriously, and it became a passion that has stayed with me all my life.

I moved back to attend graduate school in Hartford, Connecticut. During this time in my life, I worked at a nonprofit where I booked cultural excursions for nearby schools. I worked different jobs at the agency aside from booking, and at one point, I was their main producer for a charity film project in Guatemala. All of these experiences helped to shape my world view, and after graduating, I moved to New York and became a full-time travel agent with Bear & Bear. 

I initially worked with NGOs and nonprofits, and I set up complex itineraries for charities around the world. Most of my bookings were for humanitarian groups going to Africa, and I learned a lot about booking short-notice trips for huge groups across the world. I was very grateful for these experiences, as they have helped shaped by world view for the better.

Now that I’m a part of the fantastic Bear & Bear Travel team, I thrive at creating unforgettable travel experiences for my clients, wherever their ideal destination may be. Whether you want to live the VIP, luxury life in Europe or experience luxury family travel domestically, the Bear & Bear team has all the resources to make it happen!
