My Travel and Work Experience

I have been an avid traveler for many years, and bring more than 18 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 ...

Mt. Denali, in ful and spectacular view

Hello happy traveler! In this covid world we are all hesitant to jump outside our comfort zone, the good old USA. You are not alone, I hesitate to travel these days too. How safe are planes? What are hotels like? Once I get there is anything even open? How do I figure out where to eat? It's a whole new world of travel questions and worry.


Let me help you navigate the plans and see some of our own great sights. I have experience planning trips to national parks across the west, including the most famous national park, the Grand Canyon. I've been hiking in Alaska's Denali National park, and can help you build a fun experience there without a big cruise ship. I've seen every island of Hawaii and the best trip of my life was with UnCruise on a ship holding just twenty-seven people.


I don't know about you, but nearly every single person I know has been to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the last couple years. It's a hot destination, and offers a beautiful respite from the day to day assault of politics, news and online noise.

Have you considered small, off the beaten path places? The finger lakes area of New York is quite picturesque. Michigan has more than 11,000 lakes, and the upper peninsula has some amazing pristine wilderness to explore.
Don't forget our beautiful inland oceans, the Great Lakes! Crowds are low and the beaches go on for miles and miles. Find your spot in the sand and sun.


We will also be able to travel to Hawaii very soon, without quarantine. I've been there multiple times and have been to every single major island, and even the minor ones like Molokai and Lanai. I love being outdoors and being active, so if you'd like to zip line or ATV through the rainforest, I can help. If you'd like to bike down a mountain or snorkel with manta rays and brightly spotted tropical fish, I have experience. If you'd like to walk a beach and enjoy a luau, let me be your guide.

My life goal is to see all 50 states before I turn 50. This year is a slow one for sure, but there aren't that many states left I need to hit. I can use my local expertise to craft a fun, safe and much needed getaway.


See it now, see it small, let me know how I can help you!

Great choice!
Melissa was a great choice for planning our family trip to London! She is very knowledgeable, easy to work with, responded to questions/concerns very quickly, and gave honest and sincere advice/recommendations. Before we met her, I was trying to plan everything on my own and didn't realize all of the benefits of using a travel agent. We will work with her on any future travel plans!

Best travel agent ever.
Melissa Becker did an amazing job assisting with my trip to Costa Rica. I was provided with information on the resort I would be staying at, along with different options for exploring the area.

Greece - breathtaking
We have booked two trips with Melissa: Greece and Costa Rica. Both trips were wonderful! It was so nice to be on vacation and know that all transportation and itineraries were already planned out. We were able to relax and enjoy the places and the people.

Great experience beginning to end
Melissa seamlessly planned our trip to Costa Rica (where we had never been before). She listened to our ideas about what kind of trip we wanted and turned them into reality. She was prompt and answered all of our questions completely. I would absolutely recommend her.
