OUR PEOPLE MAKE US
WHO WE ARE
Travel Masters is home to some of most talented and successful travel professionals in the industry. And we love to share their stories and celebrate their successes! Here are a few stories to check out today.
Travel was my first job right out of high school and as I progressed to be the top producing agent where I worked but I realized I could never reach my full potential there. I made the leap from employee to independent agent and have never looked back. Now I have the freedom I’ve always wanted. I am rewarded and celebrated for the work I put in and can take the time to enjoy football and travelling. – Fil is known for her home-cooked meatballs
My passion for travel has finally landed me a career as a proud and enthusiastic Experience Specialist in the travel and tourism industry. I am grateful to be able to work with such an amazing company as Travel Masters. I am committed to going above and beyond for my clients, customers, guests and students, and am dedicated in providing exceptional and consistent customer service. The world is ours to explore – nothing adventured is nothing attained! – Tammy is a huge fan of Imagine Dragons.
I love the support I receive from Travel Masters’ head office. It allows me to take my business further than I thought possible. The ability to work from home keeps the overhead low but does not impact my ability to train in new programs. The support team is incredibly helpful and I never feel stranded or alone when working on issues either technically or situational. Best move I have ever made.- Amber loves to finish her day with a nice glass of champagne.
