“Hi, I’m Gina! When I started my journey in the travel industry 25 years ago, there weren’t many opportunities for a formal travel agent education – one that helped me understand the basics of travel or the ins-and-outs of being an entrepreneur.

For the last 10 years, I have worked with agency owners, helping them determine what success looks like for their agency, as well as helping them set goals and chart their course for success (and what a joy it has been, watching others succeed)!”
