In today’s world we are often caught up in the lives of our friends and family without actually connecting with them. We go about our work lives planning to someday stop, relax and reconnect with others and ourselves. Suddenly a year has passed, then two then five. Time is the one thing we want most and the one thing we work so hard to get more of and yet, we forget to slow down and live the life that was gifted to us. You can always make money but you can't always make memories.
My name is Shirley. I began my travel career in 1998 with a front desk job in a travel agency in the same town I live in today. I reconciled the Airlines Reporting Corp. report each week and other mundane tasks . I opened the mail one day and gave a "contest" mailing to my manager. He told me to go ahead and enter if I wanted to because, "No one ever wins those things." Yep, sure enough I won a 7 day Mississippi River cruise for two with air. Whaaaat? That was the beginning of "journeyitis" for me! I took my sister with me and decided right then and there that the way to travel was checking into my floating hotel and letting them drive me to where I wanted to go. I fell head over heels in love with water travel! Large ships, small ships, adventure cruising, rivers oceans, all vessels American and European!
I became the first Tahiti Tiare Agent in NC. I am also an Accredited Cruise Counselor and Small ship specialist as well as a Hawaii Destination Specialist.
I look forward to getting to know you and really listening to what it is that you want from your vacation. I am here to take the stress and anxiety out of planning your fabulous journey so that you can unplug, reconnect and just simply celebrate the world and yourself in it.
