Charlotte grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois, just a 15 minute drive across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, MO. For Charlotte, traveling across the Mississippi bridge from Illinois to Missouri was the beginning of her desire to travel. Her vivid imagination took her all over the world and she promised that one day she would travel to all the places she read about or saw on TV.

After high school and college, her travel opportunities began. She landed her first travel job as a secretary for TAP Portuguese Airlines in Chicago, Illinois. A few years later, she was hired by United Airlines in Denver, CO. She took advantage of every opportunity to travel. Her kids used to say, they could navigate through any airport anywhere because they grew up running through them all.

After 22 years of service with United Airlines, Charlotte retired and decided as her post retirement job, she would open her own home-based travel agency. She operated her agency full time and specialized in group travel allowing her to create memorable travel experiences for her clients.
