Owner/Manager Effingham Travel
I became a travel agent in 1984, at Effingham Travel when we were still located at the mall..I have a bachelors degree in business and merchandising so travel didn't have a lot to do with my degree but thought it would be an interesting field! I loved it of course, and in 1986 my husband Darrell and I became partners in the business with our good friends Debbie and Hank Stephens...they have since left the travel industry but we remain close friends...I have worked in the front office as well as taking care of all the administrative and management duties..I have been lucky to travel to many lovely places over the years including: Cancun, Puerta Vallarta, Hualtulco, Cabo San Lucas, Ixtapa, Jamaica, St.Lucia, St. Thomas, St.Martin, San Juan, Punta Cana, several cruises, Disney, Tampa, Colorado, California, London, Paris, Madrid, and Italy and many more! I enjoy visiting places that we can confidently recommend to our clients...
My mission here at Effingham Travel is to provide excellent service and value to each and every client who calls on us..With our group of experienced, dedicated, friendly, and talented agents it makes my job easy...All of us try to stay up on the latest travel news and trends that we can pass along to our valued clients...I plan to be at Effingham Travel for many years in the future and look forward to working with our agents to provide the very best travel service to our clients in the future!
