Michele Joel
Senior Travel Advisor


Phone Number: (604) 605-5176

Expertise: Corporate travel. She’s fast, efficient, and sensitive to the business traveler’s needs and idiosyncrasies, which makes her a “natural” for this kind of work. In addition to her specialty in corporate travel management, she has vast experience in leisure travel:  Southeast Asia, South America, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico are all areas of expertize.  Her latest venture is focus on northern travel experiences

Bio: Michele has been a travel specialist since 1976 and has been with us since 1996. She comes from Lethbridge, Alberta.  When asked to describe her style, Michele says, "I like to think outside the box.  I know it is a cliche, but nothing motivates me more than a problem that cannot be solved by conventional methods."  In 2005, Michele became one of our senior account managers, who handles and over-sees a variety of mid-size corporate accounts in the USA and Canada.

Favourite place:  Not so much a place as a type of travel - adventure travel, which include hikes up the Inca Trail to Macchu Pichu, discovering the forests of Borneo and puttering through the villages of Bali. The people in each of these countries make travel an incredible experience. 

Hobbies: Coaching advanced-level soccer, gardening, and hiking with her family.

Travel tip: All work and no play makes you boring: take a vacation!

Testimonials:

We just finished a 3 week trip to southern Africa...

I wanted to give a monster shout out to Michele.  Michele pointed this trip out of us, researched questions for us, booked the camping trip and flights for us, and handled a mess of paper work.

The trip was stunning!  Word fail completely.

If Michele gives you some travel advice, my friends, take it.
