Designing your Travel Dreams
About me
I grew up in Texas, Georgia and North Carolina and was involved in the travel business at an early age as my father, Harold Panel, worked for Eastern Airlines and my mother, Vickie, worked at various travel agencies as we moved across the Southeast. We traveled often during my childhood and teen years. My best memories are from our family camping trips and cruising the Mediterranean Sea. I followed in my father's footsteps and went to work at the airlines (Eastern and Delta) for a few years. By then, my parents had opened their own travel agency and I joined them as a cruise specialist, then eventually moved into all aspect of booking travel and managed their Cameron Village office once they expanded their business. After a few years, I met the man of my dreams, got married and he whisked me away to Hendersonville, NC where I went to work for Wilcox Travel and Tours focusing mainly on corporate travel and handling several large national accounts. We enjoyed a couple of years in the mountains before moving to Burlington, NC and I retired from the travel business to stay at home with our newborn son. Two decades later, after my two sons have grown up and flown from the nest, and various jobs in the promotions and marketing industry, retail, the art world, etc., and a move to Alabama, my sister, Angie, approached me with the idea of returning to the travel agency, working with my father, and upon her retirement from 30 years of teaching, she would join the business as well. Thus, the creation of 2 Sisters Travel, our affiliation with Travel Source and Travel Experts, and the return to my roots in travel. I'm very excited about taking the knowledge and experiences I have gained and using it to find exciting ways to give our clients the best possible travel experiences.
Why I love my job
I love working designing trips to fit clients needs and desires so they have the best possible experience. There is nothing more rewarding that having clients return home and rave about how amazing their trip was.
Favorite Destinations
It is so hard to choose with all the fabulous places I have been, but I think my favorites are Portugal and Mexico. There is such wonderful history and hospitality in both countries. Amsterdam and London are very high on the list as well and you can never see enough of Hawaii and French Polynesia!
About my most memorable vacation
I think my most memorable trip would be the Mediterranean cruise I went on with my family when I was in high school. Although we had traveled often domestically, it was the first big international trip my parents took us on and it really opened my eyes to all that was out there to be seen in the world. I believe it sparked my love of travel and ultimately led me to follow in the footsteps of my parents in the travel industry.
