Speak with a Travel Consultant


Patty Thorington

“Let Me Tell You Where to Go.”

I have been a travel consultant for 41 years. In that time, I’ve become more than just an agent to my clients. I’m their partner, helping them not only plan the perfect trip but also helping them save money, putting their interests first, and taking care of all those little details that can overwhelm.

After owning my own small agency, I moved to Plaza Travel in 1995 and made a name for myself specializing in customized group bookings for corporate meetings, using my experience in Sales and Catering at Holiday Inn to coordinate the various demands of those accounts. Along the way, I developed expertise in entertainment travel and cutting-edge agency technology.

I was born in Bogota, Colombia, but have lived in the U.S. since age 1. I have two amazing sons that are doing their General Surgical Residency, one in Stanford, and one in University of South Florida.

I currently serve on the board of SOCAL ASTA as Vice President, and previously as Treasurer. I had the honor of serving two terms as Director at Large for ASTA National.
