Meet Connie George
I accepted a job training as a travel agent in 1978, thinking it would be a “temporary job.”
Eventually, I realized that I had been led to this industry. I thrive working with people and introducing the world to them. I love seeing people get the mental, emotional or physical break that they need. And to hear of relationships that strengthened and of clients trying new things, broadening their horizons, and exceeding their expectations. Some share that they were able to do things that they never thought they would. I am thrilled to have helped people taste food and experience cultures, to see sights they will never forget, hear sounds they had never realized, and to touch parts of worlds they had barely imagined.
I’ve been blessed to work with five generations, ranging from those who were old enough to have been my grandparents when I started to those young enough to be my grandchildren. In between are the “kids” on their first trips, who are now booking their own families’ trips and celebrations.
In addition to continually learning through travel, courses, and certifications, two key certifications that I’m proud of which took a lot of time and benefit our clients are my Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) and Life Coach.
Through it all, I’ve gotten to be a magician, a puzzle builder, an artist, a teacher, and a confidant in a constantly evolving industry. I don’t tell the story, but I do open the book and point out the chapter of a client’s next adventure.
This is the work I was born to do, and I am so glad to have been led here.
