Happy Thursday, friends from Mexico!
You guys, sorry I went MIA yesterday. My team and I arrived in Mexico on Tuesday and well, things just got busy and fun, and before I knew it, my blog post didn’t make it up yesterday.
We are having the BEST time here this week as a team. It’s truly been such a blessing to step away from our busy lives and spend time together. I’ve been to Mexico many times, but this resort is a first for me, and it’s been excellent! I’m excited to share even more pictures soon with you guys. In the meantime though, since I’ve been in Mexico with these fabulous ladies, I thought it might be a good time to introduce you to the women that work with me here every single day at Mix and Match Travel Agency.
When I started my agency over 11 years ago, I always assumed it would just be me working alone all day by myself. I had NO idea that the Lord would open the way for me to start including more and more team members to help me grow my business and care for our wonderful clients. Each and every day, I am extremely blessed by these women who show up and work hard to create custom vacations for each of our clients. I now consider each of these women dear friends and thank the Lord each and every day for them all.
Okay, so I asked each team member to share a little bit about themselves and what they do here at Mix and Match Travel Agency.
Hi Everyone! I’m Erika, the VP of Operations and head of Disney Vacation Planning, here at Mix and Match Travel Agency.
I’ve been married to my husband, Tab, for eighteen years and we have four children-Ebby Lee, Nixon, Bowen, and Britt. On top of being Shay’s right-hand girl when it comes to operational affairs, I head up the Disney vacation planning here at our agency. In my house, I’m the party coordinator, the family scheduler and am the one making sure all the extra fun things happen for our family. I absolutely love getting to help others make those same magical memories through a Disney vacation.
Our Mix and Match Travel family is simply amazing! Everyone’s so supportive and eager to help each other. We’d love to work with you and your family on your next vacation!
I’m Clare—the international travel planner here at MMT! I work closely every day with my partner in crime, Shanna, who is a master of the little details when it comes to planning trips. Once I create the itinerary, she is the one in charge of ensuring each adventure we plan is thoughtfully arranged and executed to perfection!
My love for travel runs deep and blossomed even more when I had my two kids! My favorite thing in the world is traveling with my own family, where we make incredible lifelong memories that can only come from being in new and unfamiliar places together.
My goal for our clients is to make international travel simple and comfortable, doing everything I can to create seamless trips that allow them to create their own lifelong memories. The best part of my job is seeing the photos and hearing about the amazing adventures I get to create for our clients! Turning travel dreams into unforgettable realities is something I am lucky enough to do every day.
I could not be prouder to be a part of this amazing team of strong, empowered women. Each of us are wives, moms, friends, and passionate travelers! Our shared love for exploring the world binds us together. I am truly blessed to be a part of the Mix and Match Travel team.
My name is Caroline and I serve as the Office Manager here at Mix and Match Travel Agency! I have been married for almost 6 years and have two beautiful kiddos with another one on the way in October! As the office manager I deal with the business and customer service side of things. I make sure each agent has the information they need for their clients, the correct paperwork and documentation, and I am the finalizing step for each vacation between our agents and our larger travel network. I am the official checks and balances of the operation.
I absolutely love this job and working with this team! Each lady here genuinely loves what they do and serve each client as if they were planning their very own trip. It’s a one-of-a-kind atmosphere and I’m so very thankful to be part of it!!
I’m Shanna, and I help with all things concierge: booking dining reservations, suggesting and booking tours, excursions and helping with any other concierge special requests. I also plan travel to South Africa, Thailand, Chile, and other exotic/less traditional destinations.
The best part of my job is when clients return home and send pictures of their adventures. I love knowing I was a part in making their dream vacation a reality. 😊.
Traveling with my own family is my very favorite thing. It’s the rare times we are all together, making memories, laughing and seeing the world together that I love the most.
My name is Mackenzie, and I am the Social Media Manager at Mix and Match Travel Agency! My husband and I are the parents to one year old twin baby girls.
I love traveling and getting to experience new places, people, cultures, and making the best memories! My favorite part of my job is getting the client feedback! Every client has such a fun and unique take on their experience, and I love seeing their pictures and hearing all about their adventures. I love being a part of this Mix and Match team because everyone is so diligent, hard working, and kind! We all want to see each clients dream vacation come to life and we all cheer each other on along the way!
And I’m Shay Shull, the owner and founder of Mix and Match Travel Agency. I started this agency in June 2012 out of my passion for travel. My husband and I (and our four kiddos!) have traveled all over the world together, and it is truly our very favorite thing to do as a family. I wanted to create a boutique agency without cookie cutter recipes for vacations. I wanted personal relationships with clients, unique itineraries, and specific trips tailored to individuals.
I have a passion for empowering people to travel abroad (it doesn’t have to be intimidating!) and love encouraging clients to step out of their routines and into a once in a lifetime experience…but without having to do all of the legwork themselves. I love to travel and love to see others travel too!
I feel incredibly blessed each and every day when I go to work. I love what I do, I love my team, and we all love our clients. We would love to help you too! For more information about how we can help you with your next vacation, PLEASE REACH OUT!
Right now, we are sending clients to Walt Disney World, Hawaii, on cruises all over the world, and then all international destinations too.
Thank you for stopping by and allowing us all to introduce ourselves to you. We have one final day in Mexico to enjoy, so I’m going to head off now.
I will see you back here tomorrow, friends! xx
