Destination Wedding and Group Travel Specialist
North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii
I've taken my Destination Wedding Specialist Program through Marsha Steeves Destination Weddings. This course helped me develop a high level of expertise to plan your special day and leave you with memorable moments. The knowledge was extensive on the preferred resorts and tour operators that I use.
I've also completed my Event Planning Certificate through Canadian Tourism College. I've learned the fine details that are needed to help your day succeed. Besides being a Destination Wedding Specialist, I'm also a Banquet Captain. This has given me a chance to learn exactly what bride and grooms want for their wedding day and how to execute it for a day filled with memories. I have extensive customer skills by being in the hospitality industry for over 5 years. To me hospitality and travel go hand in hand especially when booking resorts.
With the same college, I've also completed a Tourism Certificate. This has given me the highlights of every country in the world. I also was able to develop the skills needed for booking group travel.
Besides learning in class, I've traveled to 21 counties so far and some a couple of times. Most of these were solo trips and was able to really experience first hand the local culture, food and interact with locals. The highlight of the travel industry for me is for that reason. Each destination has it's own uniqueness to them. I have taken Spanish classes and lived with a host mom, lived in Mexico, volunteered in Guatemala and Panama. Every country I go to usually involves some sort of adventure as well which includes surfing, caving, atv's, hiking volcanoes, volcano boarding, visits to castles and cathedrals etc. The list is never ending. I will be traveling to Asia as well in January. The traveling and learning new cultures will never end for me.
I've traveled more luxurious as well by staying at a few different all inclusive resorts for weddings or group travel. Each resort has it's specialties and amenities. The customer service is what I look for when traveling to these destinations.
My education will be continuous for me so I can keep up to date with the resorts and what they offer. This is so I can deliver to you a great experience for the destination of your choice.
