Title: Luxury Vacation Specialist
Agency: Destinations
Email: non@destinationsar.com
Phone: 479-582-1900

I was born in Laos and left the country at very young age. Right after leaving Laos, our large family made a journey through 2 other countries, Thailand and the Philippines, before we settled in our permanent home in Fort Smith AR.

The love for travel has always been a passion. But the trip that made the dream into a reality was a trip back to the home country of Laos, after my graduation from the University of Arkansas, in Fayetteville. The culture, the people and all the wonderful destinations in this country had me curious about the rest of the world.

After that trip, a few other trips to Hawaii and Mexico followed, and I knew that travel is where I wanted to be. I found my passion in the cruise world, and became a cruise specialist at a family travel business here in Fayetteville AR. I was so blessed to work with them for 15 years. I love taking care of people and helping to make their dream trips come true.

I am excited to be able to continue this passion with Destinations, and continue to create wonderful travel memories for our travelers and myself.

At Bellevue Travel, she delights in helping families, couples, and groups explore the warmth of the Caribbean, diversity of America, and the beauty of Canada.

An avid foodie, Beth tries to take part in a food tour on every vacation, believing food is the perfect way to experience the culture, history, and soul of a destination. On a recent trip to St. Louis with the love of her life, Beth went on a food tour throughout downtown, stopping at Dressel’s for a delicious sandwich in a historic building for starters and finishing the tour at Bissingers Handcrafted Chocolatier to enjoy their fine chocolates made with a 350-year-old recipe.

A pet-parent to an adorable leopard gecko and a clingy cat, Beth is passionate about responsibly interacting with animals while on vacation. Donned with her reef-safe sunscreen, she dreams of swimming with the pigs in the Bahamas and viewing wild manatees in Florida.

They have been hooked on escaping the cold and heading to the Caribbean or Mexico ever since! Some of Beth’s fondest memories with her family were created on vacation and she looks forward to a life filled with many more.

What a better way to spend your leisure time, than travelling!

Recreation is an activity of leisure, leisure being discretionary time. The "need to do something for recreation" is an essential element of human biology and psychology. Wikipedia

My passion is helping people. My goal is to help people pursue their leisure interests through travel.

I have significant experience in coordinating, researching, planning tours and local, national and international events. I have interacted with all ages, to help make leisure and recreation enjoyable for individual and groups.

After years of working in recreation and volunteer management, becoming a travel consultant and business owner became the next chapter in my life. With my degree in Recreation and my passion to help people, I felt it was a natural fit to become a travel consultant/business owner. I was always the coordinator, the researcher and the planner. My friends and family would always ask me to look after the plans.

Travel has always been an interest to me. I have traveled to Europe, United States, Mexico, Jamaica and all across Canada. I love experiencing other cultures, the food, the architecture, the language, the customs and most of all rejuvenating! Perhaps I was born with a fascination of other cultures because of my heritage. My family is originally from Europe, specifically my mom is from Amsterdam and my Dad from Rotterdam, Netherlands. I would like to explore more of Europe in the future to learn about other cultures.

I would like to help you plan your vacation, whether it is at an all-inclusive resort, a river boat cruise, an ocean cruise, voluntourism (a trip to combine volunteering and travel) or a specific tour you would like me to design/source for you. I can assist with planning groups, family, corporate or individual travel needs.

Please contact me with all your travel needs and I would be happy to help you.

I was born and raised in a small town in Bavaria Germany, where I developed my travel bug early, while growing up. After turning 14, I started to hitchhike around Europe with friends every chance I had, over the next couple of years.

At 16, some cousins and I came to the US to meet up with a pen-pal I had in Indiana. From there we took of to Mexico, California, stopped in Arizona for a raft trip down the Grand Canyon and back to Indiana, before returning home to Germany. Well that “Wanderlust” has never left me, and has taken me to some truly amazing places around the Globe. As well as bringing me into the Travel Industry, which I have enjoyed with my wife for the last 20 years.

So here I am at Jet Set Travels, where I love to use my extensive travel experiences, to help and create some truly magical vacations.

About Us


Since we first spent our honeymoon at Sandals many years ago, we have not stopped exploring the beauty of the Caribbean by sea and land. During our travels, we have amassed a vast amount of personal experience and knowledge when it comes to the seven seas and All-Inclusive Resorts. We as a team want to ensure that our clients avoid the pitfalls and little nuances that can spoil a vacation by ensuring you are well informed. We feel that the more you know and are prepared, the more you will enjoy your vacation.

Our family and friends were always asking for advice when it came to traveling and would report back that the information provided was invaluable. We decided to become travel agents in order to offer more to our clients. A medical professional and a full time Stay-at-Home mother, we live in the vacation capital of the world, Orlando Florida. We are passionate about cruising and feel that we should be on every ship leaving port. We also have four children who enjoy traveling with us.

Team SaintFleur look forward to meeting all your travel needs.

But moving around the country with her husband, Rick, and rearing their son, she didn’t have the opportunity until moving to Columbus. A friend worked at Travels By Donna and recommended to Kathy that this would be a good part-time job for her. “I had the opportunity here and took it,” Kathy said. “Donna hired me and taught me the business. She’s a good teacher. Donna’s good to work for.” For anyone wanting to get into the travel industry, Kathy recommends that you find a reputable agency, even if you want to work from home. And if you want to work from home, she said you should have a sizable circle of friends who like to travel and are willing to spend money booking with you. In her spare time, Kathy likes to read, knit, bake and ski (both water and snow). She likes to travel, though she admits she hasn’t had much time lately to do so.

I started in the travel industry in 1999 as a corporate travel agent serving both small and very large corporations. The agency where I worked specialized in the “most demanding travelers” and we were responsible for managing every aspect of their trips. We provided travel support 24/7, monitored flights closely and prided ourselves because most of the time if a problem arose, we had already fixed it even before the traveler was even aware that a problem existed. This helped make us one of top leaders in the travel industry because of our attention to detail and our top customer service. I learned a great deal about customer service and how to resolve all types of complicated travel related issues and I never forgot the important lessons learned. We were always looking out for the customer to make sure they earned the maximum miles and points to insure that they got the perks that make frequent traveling tolerable. In the years that followed, I started to branch out into the Leisure travel side of the business as well. There were three niche market areas that were a passion of mine from the beginning. In my youth, I worked on a cattle ranch and have a great love of horses and the west in general. I was fortunate late to be able to travel a lot and started to do amateur rodeo until an injury required me to stop. I discovered the LGBT rodeo circuit and started working as a rodeo hand for the various associations. So when I started in the Leisure side of the business, I gravitated to the very specific niche markets for Western (Luxury Ranch Vacations), Luxury, Adventure and LGBT Couples travel. It is my true passion still is to this day! I love to find unique vacation ideas in all three of these areas. Sure I still do the vacation packages to the Europe, Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc… that are always popular, but what I truly love is doing something very different from the every day vacations. The western vacations were one of my favorites as I traveled to many working ranches across the United States to find the best ones my clients would enjoy visiting. I also had a number of customers that were looking for vacations that would challenge them physically, or were looking for going somewhere off the beaten path. I love a challenge, so this was another love of mine. Then there was the LGBT couples travel. I quickly discovered that there was a ton of vacation options for LGBT Singles, but very little couples options, so I started putting together vacation packages specifically for LGBT couples. Finding LGBT couples friendly destinations was a bit of a challenge at first but things are much easier now.

In June of 2009, I had the opportunity to start my own business which allowed me to focus on the areas of Travel that truly inspire me to excellence. Texas Cowboy Travel was born, and every day is a new adventure for me. I truly love what I do and my customers benefit from my expertise, so it’s a win, win situation. So in today’s technology age where it is so easy to book your own travel, you may be asking why do I need a Travel Agent?
