I have over 25 years of experience in the travel industry and have been lucky enough to enjoy a variety of amazing opportunities to travel the Globe.I joined Valerie Wilson Travel in 2003 and have worked as both a Manager and a Leisure Consultant. I specialized in planning individual trips as well as multi-generational vacations to an array of exotic destinations. After a successful career as an Associate Agent, I was promoted to Executive Director Leisure in 2016. Since then, I have pursued this position with equal passion and dedication. I focus heavily on developing strong rapports with all our Advisors and Associates, and cultivating supplier relationships to best serve our clients.Beyond working at Valerie Wilson Travel, my main interests are travel, boating, hiking and spending time with my grandchildren.
I was a Residential Real Estate broker for ten years, a career that taught me so many key skills in customer service that I apply each day in travel: listening, understanding a customer needs and wants, not judging someone by their cover. I love exploring the world and sharing each trip with my clients and friends. It was the best decision I made 30 years ago.
Africa: I love wildlife, the outdoors and connection with locals. Each country I have visited has always opened my heart and taught me about their individual culture, animals, conservation and how to embrace life in a simpler way.
