I have been booking group trips for Scuba diving before Travel Masters even existed. I started Travel Masters because I wasn't satisfied with the services being provided at that time. So, in 1991, I went to travel school and opened Travel Masters in the corner of Scubaland Adventures with a folding table, a chair and a computer! Now, 20 years later, Travel Masters is a thriving, successful and well-known dive travel wholesaler with customers across the nation and provides travel planning for nearly every dive destination in the world!
We have evolved over the years as the industry has changed and as our clientele has changed. We started doing Adventure Travel a few years ago and have had many successful trips that did not include diving. We have been on several African Safaris in Kenya, Tanzania and Botswana, we went Gorilla trekking in Rwanda, we became Elephant Trainers (mahouts) in Thailand, we photographed Polar Bears in Churchill, we snorkeled with Humpback Whales in Tonga, we climbed Mt. Kinabalu in Malaysia and we had drinks with a most bizarre chief in the Amazon.
People say that the key to a successful business is finding something you love to do. I have certainly done that with Travel Masters! I LOVE to book, sell, plan trips!! I am the luckiest girl in the world for getting to do what I love every single day. I have the best job and the best customers. I work with my husband all day (in Scubaland Adventures) and my dog comes to work with me. What else is there?!
My goal for Travel Masters is simply to continue providing quality service and quality products. I want to continue attracting high quality customers that appreciate the journey and not just the destination. And, I want to continue sharing the world with people I meet. I love that Travel Masters has been instrumental in opening the eyes, hearts and minds of so many people.
