“Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

-Mark Twain

 

My love for travel began at an early age. My dad would always say "the world is a big place, don't stay in one spot." He also said, "business makes the world go round"... So I did the University thing, but not before a trip to Europe. I made it 1 year in what they call the real world and my bag was packed. Taking a year to back pack and work my way around Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia and Australia. I came back to Edmonton for a boy (and now husband) and got back into the world of business. Saving pennies, and asking for the occasional credit card limit increase, I had managed to visit 13 countries by the age of 30. Now I have 2 children. Our son went on his 1st plane ride at 1 month old and we haven't stopped bringing our kids on our travels since!!

Finally! - Here is where the quote from Mark Twain I began this bio with comes in...Traveling and experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, or spending a relaxing day on white sandy, turquoise watered beach is my passion. So, about 3 years ago, (still not having won the lotto jackpot) needing to provide for my family, but no longer satisfied in the corporate world, I was presented with the amazing opportunity of becoming a travel agent! I haven't looked back!!

Enjoying working with people, assisting them in finding their dream vacation, or helping them plan their destination wedding, group trip, family vacation, etc. - all the while living vicariously through them - I truly have not spent a day working since!!In addition to being passionate about travel, I am a true believer in good old fashion customer service! It truly is my pleasure to assist you with ALL your travel needs. The world is a big place, and everyday offers an opportunity to learn or experience something new. I am committed to earning your trust and ultimately your travel business.

I am an AMResorts Master Agent, and I am continuously updating and upgrading my destination and accommodation knowledge to be a certified specialist with the most reputable resorts.

Here are a few fun facts by numbers on the business I have done in the last 6 years as a travel agent for your reference!

Wedding in Cuba

Reviewed By Kasia - Edmonton | Traveled to Varadero ~ Cuba ~ Caribbean
We celebrated our wedding in Cuba. We had 42 guests, and over half of them were from Europe! Christie was able to suggest and ultimately coordinate everyone’s arrival! It was no small feat as of course English is very limited to our family in Europe. She even worked with the wedding planner at the resort on our behalf and we were so very pleased with how easy she made the process for us. We were literally able to sit back and enjoy! We don’t think we could have found a better travel agent - Christie truly cared about our family and friends & shared in our excitement. Very knowledgeable and fun to work with! We miss her now that we are back and all the planning is over!! I guess that means we need to plan our next trip! We thank you, our family thanks you for everything you did for us!!

Happy Trip! Happy Christie!

Reviewed By S Lee - Edmonton | Traveled to Mexico
I am happy to write this happy review for our travel agent Christie. She has been gracious with her time over the last 3 years while sending quotes and recommendations. Something always comes up with our family and we have not gone on a vacation for these 3 years. Never did Christie make us feel like we were wasting her time. She always respond with kindness and offering to do what she could for us. Finally we make this last vacation to Mexico work! We did not know where in Mexico we wanted to go, so Christie sent us many options that fit our criteria. We decided on Dreams resort and were very pleased. Christie sent an email while we were there to check in. We have asked for business cards so we can refer her to our friends and family because we are thankful to her for always answering and helping. I would not recommend getting a vacation on internet company- we would not have a person to talk to and responds so quickly even late hours, weekends. We will use you always. Much thanks.

Family vacation/ Destination wedding

Reviewed By Janette - Fort Saskatchewan | Traveled to Cuba ~ Caribbean
Christie was very professional and very helpful in booking my holiday, with my three young children, for my brother’s destination wedding. Now, I don’t travel much and to go away with my kids, without my husband, was terrifying. Christie made the experience easy. I found her to be very approachable and a wealth of valuable “travelling with kids” information. It was a pleasure working with Christie and I would book with her again.

Amazing 7 Days. Palace Life 2018

Reviewed By Mark - Calgary, Alberta | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I was referred by a friend who has gone through Christie before b/c I have been burnt in the past with these online booking sites. I wanted more info, to talk to a real person and see what other options were available for us. It was a great. It did not cost me a cent more to book through her, but I got so much more info and some excellent tips that we put to good use. She is very personable and down to earth, just like talking with a friend which was refreshing. She helped us even when she was on vacation, always quick to answer a text or email and took calls evenings and weekends. I am glad my friend recommended her and now I can do the same.
