In addition to my 30+ years in the travel industry... My expertise includes
Simply put, I love what I do! After participating in school exchanges through my high school years, I became hooked on learning about other cultures and on traveling.
Today, I am an experienced senior agent who has been in the travel industry since 1984. Where does the time go?! Though I have been through and seen many changes in the travel industry, I am proud to say that I have always been, and will continue to be, here servicing my clients.
I started my own agency, Jackie’s Travel, in 2001 and I’ve never been happier. My clients become my friends and I want nothing but the best for them.
I personally work with each and every client whether they come through the door of my small-town, full-service office or we connect from all across Canada via email or the web.
I enjoy serving all types of clients including seniors, families and couples as well as planning all types of travel including escorted tours, ocean, river or sailboat cruises, honeymoon trips or adventure travel.
I see it as my role to listen to the wants and needs of my clients as they talk about a trip they have always wanted to take. Then, my job is to make that trip even better by using my experience and expertise to offer options and ideas that they may not have thought of for creating a unique and rewarding experience.
Throughout my life I have traveled extensively and had a great many travel experiences:
When not traveling, you’ll find me on my family livestock farm north of Rocky Mountain House, perhaps entertaining my new grandchild!
Farm life has kept me very active with the Alberta 4H, Alberta High School Rodeo Association, and the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association and my love of the outdoors keeps me grounded and ready to serve you. My hobbies include gardening, sledding, hiking, cycling, water sports, reading, camping and scuba diving, but my true love is travel and I am very dedicated to my career choice, my travel industry, my agency and to you, my clients.
I love to talk about travel, destinations, geography as a senior agent and I’m comfortable with these types of conversations and find it very intriguing to talk to others about their cultures, their homeland, their families, their schooling, their religions – I love to learn, love to share my enthusiasm of travel w/others. I’m extremely reliable, can count on me to follow thru, if I don’t know the answer – I will find it, give options/ideas to clients that they may not have thought of, most importantly LISTEN to the clients of what their wishes/wants/needs are.
