Hey there! I am Lisa Sheldon, Entrepreneur, Travel Advisor lover of travel, pink flamingos, Golden Retrievers and Christmas.
On my serious side, I am a Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) and a Certified Travel Industry Executive (CTIE). These certifications are from The Travel Institute in Welsley, MA. As a travel consultant, I have owned my own agency for the last 21 of my 30 years in the business. Romance Travel has been my focus for 19 years. My experience and knowledge of romance travel led me to co-found DWHSA – the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association. I serve as the President of DWHSA, where I train and mentor travel agents throughout North America and Canada, who specialize in the romance travel niche.
I have traveled extensively throughout North America training and speaking to thousands of travel agents and wedding planners on the business of romance travel. This travel has taken me to many of the popular destinations for weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean. Love Mexico, The Cancun Wedding Experience, The Travel MarketPlace, CruiseWorld, Nexion’s Romance Travel Sales Summit, and The New York Times Travel Show are just a few of the conferences where I have been asked to present.
Additionally, I serve on the Advisory Board for the New York Times Travel Show, and in August of this year I was selected to serve on The Travel Institute’s Academic Council where I also am a member of their PEP – Professional Educators Program, doing webinars for the travel agent community.
It would be my honor to train you in the Romance Travel industry, so that you too can travel to some of the wonderful wedding destinations, expand your knowledge base and create a new and profitable revenue stream for your existing business.
