I have been in the travel industry for 42 years and started my career in Honolulu, HI before moving to San Francisco. I actually was attending classes in computer programming and just randomly sat at a travel class. I found it interesting and eventually switched subjects. The rest is history! I found the idea of exploring different destinations, experiencing different cultures and meeting interesting people along the way quite fascinating. I was drawn to taking up the travel experience to higher degree with luxury travel experiences and engaging with partnerships in the industry that help fulfill these intentions. In my previous company, we established a Concierge team and services that catered to these select clients. It became the fastest growing department and the highest grossing. I hope to continue on the same path as I re-establish myself with Plaza Travel.
