My travel career has evolved over the last 16 years.

As a stay at home mom with a need to expand my horizons, my dear friend was the sales rep for Club Med, and needed an assistant. She could not pay me, but offered me free travel. I jumped at the opportunity and worked for two years without a pay check. When the territory opened up, I became the district sales manager for the Midwest.

Two years later, the position was too much for a single mom and I moved to the other side of the desk as an inside agent. I have built a busy practice through hard work, love of travel, and a genuine respect and affection for my clients. There is always something new to learn and certainly more places to explore.

What Julie’s Clients Have to Say About Her

We had a wonderful trip. A real life experience. This trip rates up there as one of our favorites. Everyday was a highlight and  exciting. Winnie prepared a wonderful itinerary for us. I would love her email so I can let her know.

The accommodations at every stop were first class. The food was excellent. We ate mostly at our hotels. Angkor Wat is the ultimate of all stops, our Cambodia guide was the best. Our guide in Saigon was also excellent.

I want to thank you and Winnie for keeping us informed about the problems in Bangkok. We knew there was civil unrest but didn’t know about the state department alert. We were very happy in Hong Kong. How could you not be at the Peninsula, the grand dame of all hotels as far as I am concerned. Spent our last day shopping. It all worked out perfectly.

Thanks Jules for putting together a trip that was truly memorable.”
