Nancy was on Keynote Travel Panel with Travel Writers and Travel Media October 29 and 30, 2022. Topic, "How Top Travel Experts See Travel in 2023
At age 13, I went on my first cross-country trip and I was instantly captivated by travel. This fascination inspired me to pursue a career in travel and tourism and I worked in a small travel agency, arranging luxury leisure trips and corporate outings for small firms. Later, I joined American Express as a Global Travel Specialist for a large pharmaceutical corporation and kept myself current with the education offerings even when I wasn't working. In my free time, I travelled all over the world, which I think is the best way to learn and come to understand different cultures. Following this, I became an Account Executive in corporate travel/meeting and incentives sales with Carlson Wagonlit Travel and then in 2005, I eventually launched my own business, Honeymoons and Get-A-Ways, as I felt I was unable to take care of my three boys, their school, appointments, sports, and daycare while employed full-time. I had always wanted to begin my own business and after years of working in larger companies, I was able to bring my own ideas to the table to better serve clients.
As a businessperson, it is essential to be adventurous and take risks. When I launched my business, I was invited to give a speech at a well-known travel event in New York City, which resulted in me becoming a Global Keynote Speaker. Additionally, I launched the program "Postcards from Nancy" on the streaming platform ROKU. Furthermore, I have been featured in renowned media outlets such as the New York Times, CNN, and Forbes. As I do not have a PR or marketing person, it is up to me to look for my own engagements and associations. To quote an old adage, "Success cannot be achieved without hard work."
