I’m pleased to recognize Victoria with this important honor. Her perseverance, work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Victoria McLaughlin as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in travel and tourism services. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“I’m pleased to recognize Victoria with this important honor,” says NAPW President Star Jones. “Her perseverance, work ethic and leadership qualities are an inspiration to all women.”

With a natural passion for travel, Victoria McLaughlin has built a successful career where she finds fulfillment in helping people plan a wonderful vacation. She owns a franchise with Cruise Planners and American Express known as Kahlua Cruises. She ensures her clients have a memorable trip by researching the best deal offered by hundreds of partners.

Ms. McLaughlin is bilingual, well-traveled and has many travel resources that help her clients before, during and after their trip. “One of the challenges we come across often is to accommodate our clients’ vacations that fit their budget, since sometimes travel plans and budgets don’t go hand in hand” she said. However, she is rewarded when she can help her clients stay in budget and still get most and / or everything they were looking for.

Having partnerships with hundreds of travel companies around the world allows Ms. McLaughlin to efficiently research by working with her BDM and directly represent each and every company with the best deal available for her clients. “My future goal is to become one of the most recognized travel agencies, not because of the quantity sold, but by client satisfaction,” she said.
