Travel Research Online sure knows how to pick ’em. I just looked at the Travel Agent 30 Under 30 article and who is smiling back at me but none other than our own Nina Van Harn!
Van Harn combined her studies of history, geography and small business to become the owner of Ambiance Travel. She is a Cunard and Princess Commodore and Silversea Specialist. Her clients, she says, tend to be upscale, well-traveled people who are looking for a more cultured or enriching journey instead of a vacation. “Being a professional travel consultant is not for everyone,” she says. “It takes a dedication to continued education, excellent people skills and great attention to details to deliver the high level of service our clients expect.”
Randi S. Hoffmann, CTC, district sales manager of Princess and Cunard Line, says that Van Harn combines “a creative, caring approach to luxury cruising with the most advanced electronic methods of communication. Nina understands the importance of education in our industry, and seeks out opportunities to increase her knowledge; she earned the first Cunard Commodore status in West Michigan.”
Congratulations to Nina for yet another job well done. You speak wonders for the travel professionals, TRO, Princess Cruise Lines, and Travel Agent magazine!
