I was a Chinese translator during my time in the Air Force with most of my tour of duty in Korea. Upon completion of my enlistment, I continued working for the government and would help friends and coworkers when they wanted to vacation in the Far East. After returning to the United States, I realized how much I enjoyed planning vacations and I studied to become a travel agent and went to work with a local agency.
Fast forward to 1992. While working with a family to plan their dream vacation, I found their same vacation but one that had more benefits; better value for them. The agency I was working for would not allow me to offer it to them. I was livid. I had always believed that as a travel agent my responsibility to you is to get you the vacation that would meet your needs and desires and at the same time have it be one that had more in terms of value. As a result, I started TRAVEL with EASe; with the understanding that a thoughtfully planned vacation can add meaning to your life’s story and always searching for the best possible value.
One of the most asked questions of us is why the little “e” in the word EASe. It’s really simple – my initials are EAS and I needed to make a word. It was a choice between EASy Travel and TRAVEL with EASe. You know my choice.
Throughout the years I have earned many professional designations for travel. Certifications such as Master Cruise Counselor (MCC) and Certified Travel Consultant (CTC). aren't just “letters after my name” it is about the commitment I have made to my career. Having my MCC and CTC designations are like having a Bachelor’s Degree in Travel and Tourism. They have added to my knowledge base and taught me that your experience is made better with the guidance of a certified travel professional. Having traveled throughout the world has given me the unique knowledge and experience necessary in order to provide you with the best information possible to enhance your travel.
I'm often asked, "Why should I use a travel agent?" My response is: "Why not use a person that wants to serve your travel needs versus an automated service with a call center customer service line, with at best zero interest in making your getaway all it could be."
TRAVEL with EASe is licensed and is certified as a veteran-owned agency. We’re here to arrange a journey for you that adds up to a special time away.
