She loves to make dreams come to reality and it is her pleasure to help each customer create a specialized itinerary that is based on their specific interests and likes.


Perry Sullivan

Perry Sullivan · 306-552-8734 ·

I’ve been assisting clients with their travel plans since 2009. The types of vacations booked to date have been mainly the all-inclusive, ocean/river cruises, & coach/bus tours. The areas include CAN/USA, Mexico, South America, the Caribbean, & Europe. I have done group & destination wedding bookings as well. Personally, my spouse and I have experienced these areas as well via all inclusive or by cruise. Our most recent trip was in February, 2016, when we saw the amazing Panama Canal. The 15 day cruise started in Los Angeles, CA and ended in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Together, lets design your trip of a lifetime.

Heather Snedden

Marlin Travel Vancouver · ·

Heather’s love of travel started at an early age, on road trips with her family throughout Canada and the United States. But it was a school trip to Italy that really inspired her lifelong love affair. After she’d completed her Bachelor of Business Economics degree, the choice to pursue her love of travel was an easy one. Working closely with local tour operators, Heather got her start in the industry booking culinary tours to Italy. This gave her the opportunity to visit Italy often, where she attended cooking classes in Tuscany, wine tours in Piedmont, and even hiked Mount Etna in Sicily. With first-hand experience and extensive local knowledge, Heather now specializes in creating custom trips to Italy and throughout Europe. And though she retains a passion for discovering and exploring new destinations, her heart will always remain with Italy, her first true love.

World Traveller, Entrepreneur, Wine & Spirits Aficionado

After living in Vancouver for over twenty five years, working in the travel industry in airlines, as sales manager for tour operators and as an educator at Canadian Tourism College, in 2007 I took a huge leap of faith and moved to Edmonton with my partner to open a Wine& Spirits store at West Edmonton Mall. He and I have spent the last 10 years building a successful business, while I also became a Level II Sommelier and French Wine Scholar.My travels have taken me throughout Asia, Africa,South Pacific, North America, and Europe both as a solo traveler and tour escort. I love the dynamics of group travel and sharing my knowledge and stories with people, while ensuring that the trip is well organized and one that provides great memories for years to come. Exploring regions on foot “at a grass roots level” is my favourite way to visit any region, however as I get older, I am very appreciative of fine accommodations and amenities, great dining and extra special experiences.
Now that our wine business is well established, with great staff in place, this year, I decided I wanted togo back to my first love, while still keeping an eye on the store. I am very excited to be joining The Travel Agent Next Door!

Ah Weh Vacations · 403-999-5097 ·
I am your professional vacation planner. I live in Calgary, Alberta I love travelling, spending time with my family, friends & my dog, I can't live without my morning coffee, and am slowly learning to appreciate a fine glass of wine. Years ago, a family vacation meant spending a week cramped in the car with hot, tired parents and siblings. Today, group travel and extended family vacations are increasing in popularity as the options have become affordable and easier to access. It's now possible to create a private getaway for your closest family members and friends, or group allowing everyone in your travel party to find something that they enjoy along the way. I specialize in coordinating group travel adventures for groups of all sizes from 4 to 400. Whether a family is creating an inter-generational trip, or it is an organization that wants to plan an adventure together, I can create a personalized itinerary that allows them to accomplish all of their vacation goals. My clients love the fact that I plan each vacation as if it were my own. I believe that the best experience lies in the details, and the planning process is as stress-free and easy as possible, which is why I work to create customized itineraries for my clients. Whether it's an all-inclusive resort, planning a culinary and wine tour to a new country, or designing a unique villa experience, I am committed to making sure that my clients have the trip that they have been dreaming about. As a Certified Jamaican Travel Specialist, I love to recommend this destination to my clients. I am completely in love with this beautiful land and the friendly people who call it home. I travel to Jamaica at least 3 or 4 times every year, and no trip is the same. There is always something new and exciting to enjoy. My clients directly benefit from my personal travel experience to this country, as I can give reliable recommendations for hotels, restaurants and excursions. Perhaps a villa in Jamaica, complete with a private beach or secluded pool as well as a butler and cook, sounds like the perfect vacation for you and your family, or maybe your group is looking for that perfect unique golfing get-away, or maybe you and your friends or just that special someone need to escape everyday life for a few days. This is all possible when you work with a qualified travel professional. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you discover a new part of the world, or rediscover an old one, so simply come to me with your goals, your ideas and any of the places you have always longed to visit. "Ah Weh" is Patios (Jamaican) for “to where” that is all I ask.... and I will take care of the rest. Let's turn those bucket list ideas into a reality........It's time for you to get away!

Cecilia Coker
Travel Consultant
Travels by Donna · (706)322-2323 ·

Cecilia became intrigued by the travel industry while growing up in Chicago. She was still in middle school.

“I was always fascinated by maps and about traveling around the world,” she said.

So it was an easy thing for her to pick a career path. She got a degree in the travel and airline industry with a minor in computer science from the Northwestern Business College in Chicago.

Three weeks after graduation, Cecilia got a job with Iberia Airlines of Spain, where she worked for five years. Iberia Airlines moved its operations to Miami, and Cecelia decided not to move with the company. She worked for a small travel agency until she got married and moved to Columbus.

Cecilia continued to work in the travel industry, first at the now-defunct Travel World in Columbus and Carlson-Wagonlit in Fort Benning.

Almost 12 years ago, she found her way to Travels By Donna, where you’ll find her happily working with all kinds of people, sending them all over the world.

She loves working in the industry, being able to help people with their travel plans. Cecilia also loves traveling herself so she can tell clients the best places to visit.

And don’t forget, Cecilia speaks Spanish, so if you need some help, she’s the one to call.

Did you know I have personally been to 57 countries?....I have traveled the world in search of culture and experience so it makes perfect sense that professionally I work in the travel industry. After spending significant time exploring the globe as a “backpacker” which makes me a wonderful resource for how to travel the world as an independent single. I've also experienced destination weddings both personally and professionally. When my personal life evolved to include children, those professional skills grew to include how to travel flawlessly with a family. For myself, the best part of working as a travel consultant is helping clients plan trips of a lifetime.

Whether I am helping to plan a trip for a young adventurer trekking the world or designing a travel experience for parents who want their children to see another culture or a wonder of the world, I have the personal experience and professional support to help you plan your trip of a lifetime.

"I do what I love and have a passion for every day".

I began my career in travel in 1981 coordinating both domestic and international corporate travel for various world-wide companies. When I started a family I decided to further pursue my passion by switching to the leisure end of the industry. My first trip was on my honeymoon to Nassau in 1977 and that is what motivated me to help as many people as possible see this beautiful world with the ones they love. With 35 years of experience and dozens of certifications, along with ongoing destination training, I am dedicated to helping others find the vacation of their dreams that is truly customized to you, whether you are traveling as a couple, family, or group of friends. I genuinely enjoy getting to know my clients and love the suspense of not knowing which resort or destination will win in the end as I further qualify each potential client for their destination wedding, honeymoon, or family vacation. Want to bolt from the cold, relax in the sun and sand, planning a Destination Wedding? I can help you! I have helped hundreds of clients live and love the Caribbean, Mexico and the world.In between planning trips, I am busy with my two children and 4 grandchildren bouncing around from gymnastic, to soccer etc. I would love to help you plan and talk you through some travel options.
