An accidental fall, spinal surgery, multiple complications and relearning basic skills for mobility and independence left Debora with a permanent walking disability and need for a career change. As a TICO-certified travel agent, ACTA travel professional member and accessible traveler, Debora’s expertise includes helping book travel for people with accessibility issues. She knows how people with big or small challenges feel when told “You can’t go there,” because she felt that, too.

“Travel is more complicated than ever and keeping in the know is a full-time job,” says Debora about why a travel agent’s services are still necessary in the Internet era. “The growing trend of multi-generational groups travelling together is a complicated purchase. My ability to help with planning, options and logistics to source the best offer based on what’s important to my clients saves time, stress and cost. In short, I am the human element invested in my client’s happiness and trip satisfaction. I listen, suggest, adjust, understand – unlike a search engine or anonymous voice. I don’t just sell destinations. I create travel experiences, including for the discerning traveler looking for the unique.” Life is short and there’s a whole world out there. Debora is only a call or email between you and your dream vacation.
