Originally located in the Mission Mountains of Montana, Mission MTN Travel was established in 1994 by a group of pastors. Its purpose was to assist other ministers and Christian workers to find the best fares available. Over the years, the agency has expanded its service to colleges, mission organizations and other groups, helping them find the best rate for their trips. We do our best to make travel as inexpensive as possible, releasing as much money as possible for the work of the ministry.
I have worked in the travel business for over 11 years and loved all aspects. It becomes quite the challenge when you are trying to help someone travel the world as cheaply as possible. I have felt like God has given me an opportunity to use travel as not just a business but a ministry. When I am not helping clients spread the gospel, I am busy taking care of my 3 little girls and working full time in ministry with my husband at our church in inner city Los Angeles. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work with such amazing people through the travel business and actually was blessed with meeting my wonderful husband through one such trip I arranged to Africa. God does truly work in mysterious ways.
I developed a love for travel at a young age, going on my first mission trip at the age of 7. I have been able to put my love for travel and missions into a career. I love being able to find the best deal for my clients, as most are churches or colleges working on a limited budget. I attended Azusa Pacific University, which has an extremely active international mission department. While there I worked in Institute for Outreach Ministries in the Mexico Outreach department as the team coordinator. I learned first hand the challenges of traveling internationally on a tight budget. I live in Southern California with my husband of three years, and am enjoying all the benefits and challenges that come with working as a travel agent.
I began my career in the travel industry 14 years ago after completing my certification at the Orange County Travel Academy. My experience began with arranging domestic airfare for corporate businesses and then I moved on to international airfare for companies with international sporting events (Oakley, Quiksilver, Star Trek). In recent years my focus has turned to international airfare and the development of travel programs for special interest groups, associations and mission teams with an emphasis on unique destinations. I have escorted and hosted many small and large groups to over 40 countries worldwide. I currently live in old town Orange and have been happily married for 18 years and proudly raised two handsome boys.
Growing up in a pastor's home, I have been involved in ministry my entire life. My husband, Joey, and I are youth pastors at a church in Billings, Montana. We have been happily married for 10 years and have 2 beautiful children. I enjoy a very active lifestyle of running road races, playing tennis and spending quality time with my family. I specialize in planning group missions trips, but enjoy planning vacations as well.
I live my life wanting to make the most out of every opportunity and experience. My husband and I have been happily married for 12 years and have three precious girls. As a mom, I treasure this time with my kids and want to make as many memories as we can. I love taking them to new places and watching their faces light up. This love of traveling has helped me be passionate about my part on our Mission MTN Team as the Travel & Vacation Specialist. I want families, couples, and groups to be able to travel. I know how costly traveling can be and always try to find the most affordable way for your family to make unforgettable memories. Planning a trip can take hours and become extremely stressful; I can take that stress away. I plan while you begin to dream!
