Sr. Agents

Shawnda and Brent McAlester Travel Agents, The Joy of Travel

Shawnda and Brent McAlester began with me (like most of the other agents) as my customers/friends many years ago.  I had an instant connection with them and was just thrilled when they decided to join my agent team back in 2013.

Talk about dedication-these are two of the most diligent, dedicated people I have ever had the privilege of knowing.  Best of all they are also a lot fun!

The two of them were college sweethearts (Shawnda holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing and Brent has four degrees-yes, they are Brainiac’s) and are an amazing team for our customers when it comes to planning wonderful travel experiences.

Shawnda works days as an OR Nurse so she is available to work with customers during the later afternoon and evening hours.  Brent is a Police Officer and works evenings so he’s available to work with customers during the morning and early afternoon hours.

Shawnda and Brent have been all over the world-Thailand, Nicaragua, Mexico, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Germany, France, England, and all across the USA as well.  They have a bucket list that will make your head swim and they’re going to see it all.  I just hope they see some of it with me!

Shawnda and Brent escorted two successful Viking River cruise groups, one on the Rhine and the other on the Danube. 

This terrific couple also play host at least once a year to a beach destination. 

In September 2019 they will be personally escorting one of my all time favorite itineraries:  Paris, Normandy and the Loire Valley (chateaux country) .  Take a look at the details under the "Travel with Us" tab and call them for more information.  Don't miss this opportunity to experience the Landing Beaches of Normandy and many other fabulous sites with The Joy of Travel.  

Shawnda and Brent are Sandals Certified Agents, Norwegian Cruiseline Specialists, Holland America Cruise Specialists, AMResort Master Agents, Karisma Gourmet Inclusive Specialists, Disney and Universal Family Travel Experts and much much more.

Shawnda and Brent are also proud members of The Joy of Travel River Cruise Specialist Team.

No matter where you want to go or how you want to get there, Shawnda and Brent will give you the expert advice you are looking for.
