Anna – Travel Consultant and Multigenerational Travel Specialist

Signature Travel Expert

bio-annaAnna is part of the bones that hold WhirlAway together.  She has been with us since day 1, which is quite obvious when you see her vast collection of notes and personal contacts for hotels, guides, and destinations around the world.  Anna’s expertise and professionalism shines through when she is planning trips for groups.  Whether is a small group of friends heading off to Europe or a family group of 4 generations escaping to the Caribbean to spend the holidays opening gifts under a palm tree, Anna makes sure that the destination and itinerary delights everyone from the youngest traveler to the most well-traveled traveler.  When Anna is not comparing amenities at 5 different hotels and figuring out what tours will be best right before nap time, she can be found relaxing near a babbling brook in the mountains or covered in dirt caring for her extensive gardens at home.

Jennifer, CTA – Travel Consultant, Disney Vacation Planner, and Caribbean and South Pacific Specialist

Signature Travel Expert

bio-jenniferIf there is one person who appreciates warm sand between her toes with an umbrella drink in her hand, it is Jennifer.  When she vacations, she heads south (or very far West) to find the best beach, the most breathtaking view, and the resorts that will go above and beyond her clients expectations.  Jennifer is also well versed in the world of air.  She has a knack for finding premium class airfare and is lighting fast and efficient for her corporate clients.  Jennifer was one of the few chosen to attend Disney’s Earmarked Conference recently.  She can tell you where to stand during the Magic Kingdom Fireworks so that Tinkerbell flies over your head and she will make restaurant reservations for you so that you have prime seating to enjoy Illuminations while eating dessert in Epcot. In her spare time she enjoys volunteering for her local firehouse in the kitchen, cheering the Phillies on, and rocking out to a good Country ballad.

Teresa – Travel Consultant and Bon Appetit Tastemakers in Travel

Signature Travel Expert

photo-37-224x300Our resident chef and wine enthusiast, Teresa enjoys eating and drinking her way through a destination.  She feels that the heart of a country and its people is best experienced with a good glass of wine and a full belly.  Teresa travels at nearly every opportunity that she gets.  Whether it means heading south for some low country cooking, to the Caribbean for some world class seafood, or to Europe to sip wines while meandering down a river before stopping to taste some of the finest cheese in the world, Teresa makes sure to fully devour a destination.  She has a keen eye on the intricate details and enjoys spending time with her clients to ensure that everything is perfectly planned.  When she is not working she can be found taking a cooking class, sipping a new bottle of wine, and cooking up something delicious that sometimes finds its way into the office for us all to enjoy.

 Jamie – COO and Africa Specialist

jamie2-200x300As a second generation owner, Jamie’s travel passion is genetic.  She grew up traveling the world from weekend escapes to Paris and the Caribbean to month long visits to Japan, Italy, and Austria and multigenerational vacations to the Cayman Islands.  Jamie began traveling solo at a young age and still cherishes the solitude of exploring the unknown alone.  When not traveling around Southern Africa to maintain and build relationships so that her clients have the ultimate experience, attending meetings throughout the US to represent WhirlAway and continually improve the business, and creating ultimate luxury travel adventures for her clients, she enjoys spending time with her family and sharing her love and passion with her kids in hopes that one day they may follow in Mommy’s footsteps.

 

 

Patty, CTC – President and Western Europe Specialist

bio-pattyIn 1985 Patty bought WhirlAway Travel and built a successful and respected travel consultancy company.  She loves meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and most importantly, delighting clients!  Italy runs deep in her veins and her love for the boot shines through as soon as you give her the opportunity to start talking about it.  She travels to Europe on nearly every opportunity that comes to her whether it be for her own pleasure with her husband Jeff or to take a group of like-minded travelers.  In her spare time she enjoys Thoroughbred racing, spending time with friends and family, dancing her socks off with Jeff, and of course babysitting Jamie’s kids when she is out of town.
