Owner/Family & Romance Travel Specialist
Connections by O'Brien Travel, LLC.
My love for travel started during my childhood growing up under a flight path near Boston Logan Airport. The planes would be flying so low, that I could wave to the pilots & passengers aboard the aircraft, at least it seemed that way!
I started my career in 1981 after graduating from Travel Education Center in Cambridge, MA. Throughout my career, I have held many positions helping clients with their business and vacation plans. In 2008, I started my own successful full-service travel agency, focusing on family vacations, groups, and romance travel.
I am often asked what my favorite destination is, that is a tough one to answer as there so many great destinations to explore. I must say my favorite to date is the Hawaiian Islands and the other is Switzerland. I did a biking and hiking trip to Switzerland one year and it was magnificent hiking in the Alps, to this day, I can still hear the cow bells clanging away as the cows crazed in the open fields, hiking down the trails with the sweeping vista views of the snowcapped alps and the valley below and it truly made you want to burst into singing a Julie Andrews song!
Lots have changed in the travel industry since I started my career. But there is one thing that has not changed, that is my commitment to my clients. By keeping up on the latest industry trends, attending webinars and yearly workshops, completing certification programs, and traveling to site inspections; all this helps me make sure that I have the right destination and the right resort that will be the best fit for you. It gives me great pleasure to have clients come back from a vacation, honeymoon, destination wedding, etc. and hear them raved about what a wonderful time that they had and all the great memories that were made and cherished for a lifetime!
I’m looking forward to helping you with your travel plans!
All the best,
