Travel was instilled in me at an early age because my Grandmother owned a travel agency, so I went to work for her while I was in high school. I've been a travel agent ever since for over 35 years. I moved from Southern Illinois to St. Louis 30 years ago to work for Altair Travel. Altair is like a second home and family to me. I came to Altair as a corporate agent; but over the years, my focus has changed to a meeting planner, small family groups and leisure travel. For me, my personal travel now revolves around adventure and different ways to see the world. Travel agents today are a great resource for helping with your travel plans, because today's travel is getting more and more complicated.
