As with most of my agents, Sallie Snipes also began as a customer. I sent her to Punta Cana as a customer and within a week of her return she sent me a Go-Pro video of the resort with commentary included. I thought “that lady would make an outstanding travel agent”. I gave her a few calls and managed to talk her into it!
Sallie is another one of us that’s truly addicted to travel. She came to love travel at an early age-well here, I’ll let her tell the story:
“My love for travel was instilled in me at a young age by my grandfather. He loved traveling the world. When he would come home he would tell me these grand stories of all the incredible things he saw and all the amazing food he had. I was 14 when I made him promise that when I graduated high school he would take me on a trip to Europe. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and passed away shortly after I graduated high school.
I took my first trip when I was 21 and we decided to take a cruise for spring break. That was my first time out of the country as well as my first time seeing the ocean. After that trip I was hooked on travel! I'm always looking to explore new places and plan new trips. My life motto is to live every moment as if it's your last. I want to explore every corner of the globe and experience all that life has to offer.
After using The Joy of Travel as a customer I was able to join The Joy of Travel in October of 2016. What better way to feed my addiction than to plan travel for others!! Travel is truly something I have a passion and love for. I enjoy helping others experience new places and making their dreams realities.”
Sallie has been taking advantage of every opportunity to travel to our top destinations, tour our top resorts, complete all of my required training (that alone is a three month ordeal) and attend workshops in our area. She’s a wonderful addition to our team and is not only an AMResort Master Agent but also holds specialties in several destinations including Mexico, Jamaica and Hawaii.
Sallie Snipes is a proud member of The Joy of Travel River Cruise Specialty Team and is also a certified escorted tour expert.
