Throughout my life, I've had the privilege of traveling to and living in many places across the United States and internationally. Exposure to a new destination, a new culture, and new people has shaped who I am as a person and how I view life. These early travel experiences have always remained etched in my memory and continue to inspire my love of travel today and pushed me to choose a career in the travel industry.
When I think about hiring someone to provide a service for me, various questions come to my mind like: “Are they qualified? What type of training or education do they have to assist me in this area efficiently?” For example, I will not hire a financial advisor that only highlights their experiences with their personal finances. I want to hire someone who has an educational background concerning finance on top of real-life experiences to make me feel comfortable placing something so important in their hands.
As a travel advisor, I wouldn’t ask you to work with me to advise you on one of the most precious experiences in your life just because I love to travel. Once I knew that I wanted to design authentic, immersive, and meaningful vacation experiences for people as a career, I aligned myself with some of the top-of-the-line training, certifications, and national organizations, which allowed me to work with the best of the best in the travel industry. I have an expansive network of professionals that I grow with through continuing education, and I am at the forefront of the travel industry to provide you with experiences that you cannot receive from an online search engine.
You may ask yourself, why should I work with Nicole? Travel is my passion, and I love to assist families and friends take extraordinary vacations that leave a lasting memory and bring them closer together, all while indulging in travel experiences beyond their wildest dreams. I tap into my extensive organizational and research skills honed by my previous 20+ year career as a legal secretary to meticulously plan a customized and seamless vacation that will make you feel like you are in your very own paradise.
Whether you seek a romantic getaway, celebrate a significant milestone with family, or travel with friends, allow me to plan your next experience. I can promise you that you will return with memories that you will cherish forever.
