From the desk of Amy Johnson...
Travel wasn't my first career, but it's always been a love of mine. I still recall many details of my first road trip to a magical place called Walt Disney World at the ripe age of 7. Growing up, my family did its fair share of the typical "family vacations." As we got older, the destinations became a little more exotic partly due to the fact that my parents owned a business and earned incentive travel vacations. By the time I graduated college, the travel bug had bit. However, it was many years later and positions in a entirely different profession before I entered the travel business. I have been designing dream vacations for over 13 years now and haven't looked back. The skills and experience I acquired from my past position as a clinical instructor at Marquette University (also my Alma Mater) are put to good use in my role as a travel counselor. I believe that continuing education is very important so that I can offer the best advice to my clients. Not only do I participate in courses, seminars and the such, but I also travel extensively on both a professional and personal level. Experience is key when it comes to determining the right vacation for you. I can honestly say that I enjoy the excitement of helping plan someone else's vacation as I would my own. And, when my clients return from their trips and can't wait to tell me about their experiences, that's just the proverbial icing on the cake! I hope that I'll be able to share the excitement of planning your vacation soon...
