The company opened an office in Naples, Florida, in 2011. “I created an energy-infused environment which attracted the best travel advisors, and I formed a dream team,” she said. The company did $40 million in business last year, specializing in Corporate Travel Management, Luxury and Experiential Vacations and Meetings and Incentive Group Travel.
