I was born and raised in St Louis, and since I know you're wondering – Parkway Central! My work life started in the restaurant business--from server, to regional training director, to manager. After ten years, I had determined my passion was in Customer Service. This also lent a great background to my current role at Altair--Corporate Travel Agent.
While traveling to open Coco's and Reuben's restaurants in Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and more, I learned firsthand about flights, rental cars and living in hotel rooms, along with helping the client. This would make it easy to relate to my corporate clients' needs in travel. All of my roles in travel from Corporate Agent, to Director of The Travel Academy, Group Specialist, and Concierge Agent were positions where my attention to detail, conscientiousness, and love of perfection were appreciated and necessary, all while never being boring.
I've had the opportunity to work for 2 travel agencies for the last 30 years, one being the largest and one being the best. The largest travel company provided excellent training and while working in several different positions, I worked with CEO's and leaders of many of the largest companies in the U.S. My experiences include working on 6 different airline computer reservation systems, asking the airlines to hold the plane for Lassie, answering calls from Europe for travelers who were grounded for days during the “Snowstorm of the Century”, and answering the phone for “What's in Your Wallet?” to name a few!
It also helps that I do love to travel and have been on some amazing trips! My favorite form of travel is cruising, and in 2016, I enjoyed a two week Mediterranean cruise that was at the top of my bucket list! Although I have been to Europe several times, I still have many places I'd like to see--including Australia and New Zealand. My favorite places in the states are Destin and Las Vegas – one for relaxation on a beautiful beach, and the other for being on-the-go constantly and trying to win Bingo!
