My Travel and Work Experience

Lunchtime at the Giraffe Sanctuary, Nairobi Kenya
Lunchtime at the Giraffe Sanctuary, Nairobi Kenya

I have been an avid traveler for many years, and bring more than 17 years experience in building, selling and escorting family and group vacations. I have always loved to travel. When I was 17 I got a job so I could travel on my own for the first time to Phoenix. I was sold. All extra money I had in college was spent on travel. I then planned a trip for friends to travel through Florida and realized this is what I need to do for everyone. It's not just a job, it's my lifestyle. My main expertise is in Europe, with more than 20 trips under my belt, including multiple trips to England, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Italy. I also backpacked through Europe for four weeks at age 18, riding the rails and staying in hostels. I have also traveled to Ireland, Kenya, Tanzania, Alaska, Hawaii, Japan, Costa Rica and many more. I have the on-site experience to properly help you plan your next trip to the destination of your dreams.

Event travel

Previous to working at Travel Leaders, my specialized experience includes planning dream vacations for world-class events. I have organized and escorted more than 50 groups: multiple trips to London for The Chelsea Flower Show and Wimbledon; to New York City for the Westminster Dog show; to Munich for Oktoberfest; to Philadelphia for the Philadelphia flower show; to Amsterdam for the tulips at Keukenhof, and more. If you have any travel needs, contact me for assistance.

First Overseas Trip was fabulous because of Melis
From the initial planning stages to the final execution all interactions with Melissa were fabulous. This was my first ever overseas trip. To say I was a little nervous was an understatement and to make me even more nervous I was doing the trip by myself but Melissa made sure everything was taken care of down to the finest detail.

I thought it was going to be a problem when the tour company changed the dates of my tour because the one I originally signed up for did not have enough travelers. Melissa not only sent me the notification to let me know of the change but she also contacted the company who I bought Travel Insurance thru to inform them of the change.

The only thing I had to do was go on my trip and enjoy it. Melissa took care of everything else.

I think my next tour will be a domestic one but I will definitely be needing Melissa's help again.

First Family Trip To Europe!
Melissa was very helpful with planning our family vacation to Europe. We had never visited Europe before, so she was able to provide hotel and flight recommendations to ensure we had a great location and enough time for activities. Melissa was very attentive to our needs as a family and helped make sure we had a great flight (regarding time) and private transportation to and from the airport. I will definitely work with Melissa in the future!

Congenial Professional, Juggling Lots of Detail!!!
Melissa was very enjoyable to work with. She is knowledgeable and professional. She listened very carefully for our wants and needs, and made some fairly complex arrangements to suit us. She was available to meet at our convenience, and kept us totally informed of progress via email, even when she was not in the office. Our 3 week trip covered Edinburgh, Highlands of Scotland, Newcastle/Hartlepool/York/London/Cornwall, England.
