Travel Consultant

Shannon McAfee

Travel and exploration are in my bones and is truly a passion of mine. I count my lucky stars every day that I get to help others craft travel experiences they will never forget. I have helped numerous couples and families over the years to plan their honeymoons, destination weddings, group travel for birthday, anniversary or milestone celebrations, or just simply a vacation to give my clients the short break they need, but the memories that will last them a lifetime. My clients have traveled all over the world, including the Caribbean and Mexico, Thailand, Australia, Italy, Greece, Spain, just to name a few and also as close to home as Florida, including Disney and Universal vacations.

 

I consider my own personal travel an essential part of my job so that I can provide my clients first-hand knowledge of destinations and resorts they want to visit. I have traveled extensively to the Caribbean and Mexico as well as Costa Rica, Italy, Greece, Australia, Alaska, Walt Disney World, and Universal Studios Florida. I will continue to expand my travel experiences to learn about new destinations for my clients. However, I am fortunate to work with some of the best agents and suppliers in the industry who can share their knowledge about destinations I haven't yet been, but where my clients would like to visit.

Best Travel Tip:

Talk to your drivers and tour guides - you can learn interesting tidbits about the destination that can enhance your overall experience. Plus it's always nice to have friends around the world! Invest in a hard shell suitcase - your clothes and other items are more likely to stay dry if your luggage gets caught in the rain. Always pack a compression bag for dirty laundry.

Favorite Vacation:

Costa Rica

Greece

Alaska

Prior to my job as a travel consultant, I worked as a meeting manager for a company based in Washington, D.C. This job helped me develop the organizational skills and attention to detail needed for my current position. I also created and owned an online toy rental company, which I often refer to as my Masters program because it taught me so many things about starting and growing a business.

 

A couple of interesting things about me: I wrote a children's book, which my cousin illustrated, and I wrote the lyrics for a song, which has been produced locally in Virginia Beach and is available for streaming. I am a lover of music of all kinds, the beach, red wine and, of course, tacos! Above all, family is most important to me and I currently live in Virginia Beach with my husband and three wonderful girls.
