In my 17 years, I have never seen anyone with any type of ‘difability’ (dislike the word disabled- so I created a new one) in any travel ads.
This fact has remained an irritant for years, so I decided to become a voice that yells a top a soap box regarding accessible travel. How comforting to learn that I am not alone in this mission; I have made many worldwide connections whose purpose is to show destinations to people who are ‘difabled’.
I bring my 17 years of travel experience; 15 of which was spent at one of Canada’s largest agencies, and the remainder as an independent owner/affiliate of TPI (Travel Professionals International) which is the large umbrella that my company is under.
TPI has many advisers across Canada who are independent owners. I am also a member of a travel consortium named ‘Virtuoso’; this gives me a plethora of travel suppliers to utilize, as well as giving my clients some amazing travel perks!
I share my knowledge with my local MS chapter by hosting travel presentations; I demonstrate that the world truly is becoming accessible!
