What did you do prior to Bursch Travel? I moved to Maui in 2004 and spent 7 years working for the tourism industry at luaus, magic shows, etc. I later joined Expedia, in the Destination Services Department, as a Concierge "Local Expert". I spent 3 years as a concierge at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa planning vacations for families, honeymooners and groups.
Do you have a travel bucket list? Definitely! Tahiti, Ireland and New Zealand.
What part of the world do you know best? Hawaii!
Tell us something others may not know about you? I like to knit. My sister and Grandmother, who had been knitting for years, taught me a very complex cable knit during one of my trips home to visit. We decided that if we all finished an afghan we would put them in the County Fair and see if anyone would win a ribbon. I finished, had it Fed-Ex'd back to MN from Hawaii, and the rookie (me) came away with the blue ribbon! It is currently on display in my living room :)
Years at Bursch Travel: 14 years.
What are your travel specialties? I am a Certified Travel Consultant, a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, a Hawaii specialist and Marriott Resorts specialist. I also specialize in diving vacations.
What destination is at the top of your list? China. It is an amazing feeling standing on the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square taking in all the centuries of history represented throughout China.
What are your favorite trips to plan? I love planning large family vacations. I love the excitement I see, especially in the children. It is very rewarding to know you are helping create memories of a lifetime. It makes me love my job even more!
