Laura has had a passion for helping people her whole life. One of her life’s mottos is, “A stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet.” This core value and belief combined with her zest for life have served her well in her professional life. She has been a social worker, therapeutic foster parent, and case manager for people with all kinds of health differences; advocating for children and adults with differing cognitive, mobility, sensory, hearing and visual abilities. In her personal life, she is a self-professed foodie, lover of winter and downhill skiing, and geocaching newbie. She has also been involved with animal rescue organizations. Through her extensive experience in stage managing shows for community theater, Laura discovered that she had a gift for and found great joy in coordinating complex projects with many moving parts from behind the scenes to bring together an amazing production and have it all run seamlessly. She was able to start putting those skills to use planning multiple trips for large groups of young people and their families and/or chaperons while doing youth work with local communities of faith.
Laura’s love of travel begun when her parents decided that at the age of six, she was ready to fly solo to visit her grandparents in New York City. There she was treated to such experiences as a production of Swan Lake ballet at Lincoln Center, the Rockettes’ show at Radio City Music Hall, and lunch at the Carnegie Deli. As she and her siblings grew older, vacations became road trips that included historical venues, amusement parks, and cultural experiences. She often camped in Canada and all along the east coast with activities such as hiking, canoeing, digging for clams, deep sea fishing, sailing ,star gazing, nature talks and white water rafting. It was through these experiences that Laura learned that for some people, “vacation” meant doing as much as possible and for other people a vacation means doing as little as possible.
Laura nurtured that love for travel during high school as president of the student exchange club, helping to match international students with local homes. She also participated in a Girl Scout program that allowed her canoe the Erie canal, back pack for two weeks in the Adirondacks, and bicycle from Buffalo, NY, to Toronto, Canada.It was during those experiences that Laura discovered travel is about both the journey and the destination. It is about forming and strengthening relationships with others and with ourselves. It is about moments of unbridled joy or breathtaking splendor and it is about the chance to revel in beautiful cultures and traditions of others.
In the many years since, she ventured out into the world traveling to Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney Land®, Universal Studios® Orlando, and has a personal goal to ride a rollercoaster in every state. Her international travel is also extensive, with adventures in France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Zaire, Kenya, Senegal, Quebec and Isla de Mujeres. Through cruising with Disney Cruise Line® and Royal Caribbean International, she has experienced Haiti, Jamaica, Nassau and life on the high seas. Laura is completely committed to assisting individuals, families, and groups of people with differing abilities and challenges have the vacation of their dreams. Let her help you see there are No Boundaries to a great vacation!
Andi’s love of travel began in childhood with family beach vacations to Charleston, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Since then, she’s traveled throughout the USA, further stoking her wanderlust. After her fiancé (now husband) suggested a trip to Walt Disney World (where he proposed marriage!), she has found herself planning several very special trips, including her honeymoon and engagement trips, as well as honeymoons for customers she met while selling jewelry. She soon realized her joy was planning trips and memories for others, and made the career change to travel.
Donna has always loved to travel. It started with Girl Scout Wider Opportunities to places like Oklahoma, California, camping up and down the Rocky Mountains, and an amazing trip to Alaska. Growing up in multicultural South Texas gave her a true feel for the richness of other cultures around the world. As an adult, she married her husband in 1999 and has been relocated multiple times around the country. Spending her honeymoon at Sandals in Jamaica was the first foray into other countries and she hasn’t stopped since. While living in Seattle, WA, Donna completed a Bachelors of Arts degree with concentrations in Culture, Literature and Art. As her final class to graduate, she traveled to Italy for study. By then the European bug had bitten and she has since gone back a number of times to see more of the continent. Since she routinely travels with her family, Donna can anticipate the needs of families looking to explore this great big world and would be happy to help in any way possible.
