We were looking for a family vacation for 14 of us within our budget to Cancun. Checked with other travel agencies but could not find what we wanted in our price range. Heather was able to get us a 6 day, 5 night stay at a - 5 star - all inclusive - Secrets The Vine Resort in Cancun Mexico within our budget. Every thing from our flight connections to our pick-up at the airport, resort reservations, return pick-up & return flights went off without a single problem. Our son, who lives in Kansas City was able to go at last minuet. Heather was able to get him & his wife connections & reservations out of K.C. to join us. Can't say enough great things about this lady for the time & effort that she put in to making this our vacation of a life time one of the most memorable experiences ever! Thank you Heather for all your hard work. Will defiantly recommend your services to anyone who wants a worry free vacation of a life time. Thank you Heather, Steve & CherylJan 21, 2016

Heather was very prompt getting back with me on trip information. As soon as I decided on a destination, she brought the information to me to set the trip up. We were picked up right outside the airport upon our arrival and returned to the airport and taken inside with our luggage right to the line we needed to be in. I booked para-sailing at the hotel which had to be cancelled due to the weather. After not receiving a refund for 2 weeks after my return, I contacted Heather and had the refund in a couple of days. I would definately recommend Heather.Jul 17, 2013
Heather did an excellent job helping me plan our 2 week vacation to Europe. She helped me find private tour guides, through reputable companies and everything went perfectly. Heather was always prompt with returning emails and phone calls. She was always helpful with suggestions and opinions.Jul 17, 2013
Heather has planned two trips for me so far, one to Las Vegas and the other to Kauai, Hawaii and they were both outstanding trips. She stayed within our budget and gave us many great options as far as hotel and travel times. She is very responsive and full of great travel tips to help you have the best trip possible. I can't wait to plan my next trip with her. I definitely recommend her if you are looking for a personable and knowledgeable travel agent.Jul 17, 2013

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I watch weekly webinars to stay current and I also travel the Caribbean and Mexico extensively. I do testing every year for various destinations to stay certified as a Destination Specialist. I am a charter member of DWHSA, which stands for Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Specialist Association.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My love for travel and warm tropical destinations! Before Your Travel Gal was founded I held a corporate management position where I mentored independent business owners and helped them grow their businesses. It was very rewarding but I was tired of working for others and the culture of big business. I needed a change and I searched my soul. I walked away from that big corporate position and got educated and opened Your Travel Gal!
