I am Monique Gramby, Romance Travel and Cruise Specialist for White Sand Travel and I also hold the title of Business Manager. As a whole, our Agency consists of various specialties in different areas including destination weddings, honeymoon travel, and cruises. I particularly enjoy family travel with my husband and teenage daughter. Before I go any further, let me just say how excited I am to be a part of TRO Diaries!
I began my career as a certified Event Planner in Philadelphia where most of my clients were couples looking for a Wedding Planner. I offered a variety of services such as wedding invitations, bridal gown preservation, floral arrangements, and more. As years went by, I still felt like something was missing.
I relocated to Georgia and thought, “Why not offer a one-stop-shop for my clients?” I felt that the time was right, and there was plenty of potential in the move for me. That’s when I joined White Sand Travel. I wanted to be able to not only plan weddings but honeymoons as well. My clients had no need to look anywhere else. However, I began to doubt myself.
With technology the way it is, and so much Internet access, I realized that people could book their travel directly with airlines and suppliers, and so I was afraid that travel agents would suffer. After attending a few seminars and workshops, I studied the best practices of top agents and realized that there was a future for travel agents. As a result, my confidence grew stronger and I realized that travel agents are still as relevant today as they were decades ago. We provide education as well as personal service and knowledge you just can’t get online. That was 9 years ago and I’m happy to say, I’m still going strong. My clients love being able to stick with one person to handle the most important aspects of their planning.
With that being said, at White Sand Travel, we take pride in our commitment to serve our clients to the fullest. My passion for travel and wedding planning go hand in hand. I am always thinking of ways to enhance my business. As I grow, I look forward to sharing stories with you in the upcoming months.
