Mary Fogel has been a cruise and travel agent for about 8 years, with part of that being an inside agent for a large travel agency in Dallas, and now working out of her home as a home based agent.
“One of my favorite things to do in the industry, is to help non-profit organizations raise $$$! There are not very many agents out there who do what I do, so I’m going to say that I’m specialized in that category. If you need to raise money, whether you have a 501 (c) 3 or not, I can offer travel options that may help you reach your goals.”
Emerald Travel enjoys booking groups for family reunions, honeymoons, all inclusive resorts, and fantastic Amtrak Vacations. They can also do golf packages or sporting events packages. If you’re just interested in hanging around the good ol’ USA, there are so many wonderful places to go and visit.
‘Faith Based’ travel is also something Mary loves doing. “There are some pretty awesome trips for those of you who are interested in faith based destinations. Some are cruises, and some are land packages.”
