After completing her very first Travel Agent course in the early 1980s at the PanAmerican School of Travel in Manhattan, a local Travel Agency in the Bronx, owned and operated by two Attorneys and their wives gave Tina a chance to step into the travel industry, working professionally as a “brick and mortar” Agency Travel Agent. Daily interactions face to face with walk-in travel clients as well as assisting telephone prospects, contributed to developing Tina’s exceptional sales and customer service skills.  The Bronx Travel Agency was one of several owned by the Attorney partners so networking with the other branch locations on Long Island and Queens also played a huge role in developing Tina’s increased travel industry knowledge and professionalism. She learned from some of the best of the best travel professionals in the industry.
