MY STORY

Founder & CEO

Hi, I’m Janet! Welcome to my travel empire!


My passion for travel was born from travelling with my mom as a little girl, mostly to St. Lucia on Summer vacations to visit family. Fast forward to adulthood, I pursued a career as an Attorney-at-Law in the corporate world, which further ignited my passion for travel and the need to “getaway” and recharge from the long and hectic days. Thus, The Travel Empire was born on May 1, 2015.


I can relate to professional women out there who feel like they just don’t have enough time in the day! It’s hard to balance a full-time job along with family demands and life in general, but vacations are essential for your well-being and peace of mind. Vacation and relaxation can give you a whole new sense of self, both personally and professionally. That's why I'd love to help you escape your hectic schedules by curating a stress-free travel experience where you can relax, release and recharge. With my passport stamps including St. Lucia, Grenada, Dominica, T&T, St. Vincent, The Bahamas, Punta Cana, Mexico, Puerto Rico, USA (Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, NY, Las Vegas), Canada, England, Paris, Belgium, & Argentina, I'm a great resource for your next travel experience.


I also love hosting group travel experiences and meeting new people! I hosted my first group experience in April 2019 to Las Vegas which comprised of 12 persons and we had an absolute blast in Vegas!! Stepping out to host a group trip wasn’t an easy task for me initially as I didn’t have a track record to go on, but I knew I needed to get my brand out there and this was the perfect way to do so.

 

This led to my second hosted group experience in December 2019 - a niche I’m very passionate about - empowering women through travel! This Girls Trip comprised of 9 professional women and we took over Universal Orlando Parks during the Christmas holidays. The lasting friendships and relationships I’ve built from group trips are immeasurable. Seeing my clients turn into my travel family is icing on the cake for me!
