Corkie said, “I have visited 58 countries and counting. I was pulled into the business by my older sister, who also works at Protravel International. When I was working as a Title I Reading Aide at Virgil Junior High School, I had the opportunity to go to Peru (in the summer of 1979) because I was an anthropology major and studied the NW coast of Peru, pre-Inca. After that trip, I decided to go and work in travel as well. The best part about travel is that I get to live vicariously through my clients.” Corkie has been an International Luxury Travel Advisor since 1979. Just a few of the places she’s personally visited include Jordan, the Falklands, Slovakia, Siberia, throughout Europe, and many more. Said Corkie, “Seeing Machu Picchu in 1979 and then again in 2010 was exhilarating. Sailing around Cape Horn and into the Antarctic Circle, then cruising through Iceberg Alley is an experience I will never forget. Going on safari in Tanzania and Kenya tapped my spiritual soul and changed my life.” Drawing from her nearly 36 years of experience in international luxury travel, Corkie shares her knowledge with clients. She thoroughly enjoys planning the perfect vacation for her clients, and specializes in European destinations, the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal, Scandinavia, Iceland, Japan.
