A little about our agents:
I have over 25 years of customer service experience with 20 years experience in hospitality and tourism. As a child my family couldn't afford to give us the gift of travel. It was something that always seemed like it would be a dream to me. In college I had the change to travel to the Bahamas and fell in love with traveling. Fun Fact: I didn't have a passport before 2015! I am proud to announce that my passport book will most likely be full before renewal time. I'm a huge believer in that the best classroom doesn't have 4 walls. Adventure and meeting people from different cultures is the best method of learning. Fun Fact: I have traveled to 6 of 7 continents. Antartica is the last one on my list that needs to be checked off. I've been to Dubai, Egypt, London, Paris, Venice, Fiji, Medellin, Costa Rica, Santorini, Croatia, Montenegro and almost all of the Caribbean islands. We love to cruise as a family. Our next adventure will be in December of 2022 for Christmas and New Years we will be sailing South Africa and Namibia.
I can't wait to help you explore the world!
My love for traveling adventures started early! As a child I lived in three different states, and my mom was always quick to explore and find the coolest things for us to do and see. ‘Road Trip!!’ was our battle cry. I became obsessed with maps and had a pretty major collection of them. After marrying my college sweetheart, his US Army job took us to Germany. We traveled through Europe EVERY chance we got. Our love of history has led us to visit some of the most amazing locations! As a mom to two competitive soccer players, I’m still looking for the coolest spots wherever our games take us.
I became a travel advisor to help people navigate the multitude of options and find the perfect trip. Whether an extended family vacay or a couple’s weekend getaway, I love the challenge of helping my clients find something to make a trip unique.
It’s a big world out there, spin the globe and pick a spot!
Travel Advisor/Flight Attendant
Hi, I'm Amy! I joined Maria and Agency Chic as a travel specialist because I have always had a love for travel. From camping and exploring as a child with my family to cruising, island hopping, and checking off places on my bucket list as an adult. I have grown, explored, expanded my horizon, met new friends, learned about other cultures, enjoyed amazing food, and created life long memories all thanks to traveling. My life motto is "I don't want to collect 'things' I want to collect valuable experiences and extraordinary memories".
I also have a passion for planning, organizing, research, and logistics. I've worked in the hospitality industry, event planning, and many retail positions over the years. Combining my passion for travel with my years of experience in event planning and the hospitality industry has been a great decision.
Since I can't travel the world year-round, I want to help others plan their vacations. Because the best gift you can ever give is an amazing vacation filled with great experiences and moments that will take your breath away.
Currently aside from working at the agency, I am taking a few classes. I live in central Florida with my husband André and our two fur babies Clark and Bruce. My free time usually consists of finding a new area to explore and for André to get some drone footage while I read a great book.
Aloha, I’m Bianca!
Born on the island of Oahu, with a mix of the Caribbean, Puerto Rican to be exact, makes me just a tad bit different. Raised in New York and moved to New Jersey as a teen and have resided here ever since.
For 10 years I have been in the ophthalmology field, I have always loved helping others. Since I was a teen I knew I wanted to be in the medical field. I’ve scheduled surgeries, been in the OR, head technician, the right-hand assistant. Patients are always so thankful to have their sight and I’m happy to be able to help in their treatments.
Seriously, who knew I would enter the travel industry?!? I was once scared to fly, scared to cruise. In fact, I was scared to travel as a whole. My father instilled his strength and fearless lifestyle in me, and with his help, I was able to put those fears behind me. 2019 was a life changer, I actually got on a cruise ship. Shortly after cruising with my family, I had the only epiphany to help others get out and travel the world. It brings me pure joy to customize a vacation specifically for each client. To travel is to live! So Let’s travel the world.
Travel Advisor/Flight Attendant
I’ve worked in the hospitality industry since I was 16 years old. Working my way through college. Always unsure of what I wanted to do but knowing that I loved working with people. I’ve worked in restaurants, hotels, and then took on a whole new adventure... education. One day a colleague told me that I should be a flight attendant. I applied and 8 years later... I’m a flight attendant and I absolutely love it. I love traveling the world, meeting new people, trying new food...and wine. It’s been the most rewarding and thrilling experience of my life. I figured becoming a travel agent and sharing my travel hacks with others just made sense. It’s fun getting to see my clients take that wine recommendation in Greece or pizza spot in Venice. Come fly and vacation with me!
