Meet Libby Gunnett
Owner, Manager and Full Time Travel Agent, Certified Travel Associate, Master Cruise Counsellor, Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Specialist
Since beginning my career as a travel agent in 1990 and now Owner and Manager of Tradewinds Travel, I have been fortunate to have experienced so many exciting destinations. The Caribbean is a destination I have always loved to visit; now I love to share those experiences in helping my clients select just the island and resort for their honeymoon or vacation. I am a Disney College of Knowledge Graduate, a Sandals and Beaches specialist just to list a few of my certifications.
Among the highlights of my travel experiences are Australia, Africa and the beautiful islands of Hawaii. There is so much to see and experience in this world, I would like nothing more than to plan that special vacation or honeymoon just for you.
Meet Barbara Goundry
My first passion was as a hair dresser. That was fun and I was successful, but after 30 years I decided to explore my second passion...travelling the world! While working, I went to travel school at night. My first job in the travel industry was with Carlson Wagonlit Travel. I was there 2 1/2 years and focused on government travel arrangements, but soon realized that I needed more opportunities for ME to travel the world!
I then worked 17 1/2 years for AAA, and had the opportunity to travel across the United States, Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, and the Mediterranean. I developed a passion for all things Disney during my visit years ago. I am now a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge and enjoy booking families to Disney World, the Disney Parks, and on Disney Cruises.
I retired in October of 2013, but found I still wanted to travel the world! My most recent adventure was a 23 day tour of Australia and New Zealand! I loved it! Still, retirement was not quite enough and luckily I got a call from Libby at Tradewinds to see if I still had the travel bug! I gave her an enthusiastic YES!
So now I have the great opportunity to work with Libby and the staff at Tradewinds! I would love to work for you to make your travel dreams come true!
Please send me an e-mail at Barbara@tradewindstravelinc.com, or give me a call at 443-266-7586!

Meet Cheryl Correll
Cheryl Correll sends warm Greeting from Florida! I started with Tradewinds about 7 years ago, as I was frequently putting together Groups! I love to work with groups, of any kind. The most rewarding part of groups is being able to travel with them and getting to know them better. No matter how big or small your group I can help plan that "Memorable Vacation Experience," whether by Air, Land or Sea! Since moving to Florida 2 years ago I've become more familiar with many destinations in the Sunshine State; such as Marco Island, The Keys, Disney World & Universal Studios. I also have first hand experience in many other destinations throughout the Caribbean, Hawaii and most recently Alaska. I have several clients (FRIENDS) that have been booking travel with me since before I actually started in the business and have acquired many new clients along the way, but there's always room for more!
Whether your looking for an intimate getaway, a family vaction or a group trip I look forward to working with you ! Safe & Happy Traveling! I can be reached by my email at phone 443-624-1447 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Mike Cominski!
The travel bug entered my bloodstream when I was in my early teens and, once I learned that there was a lot more to this world than what was outside my front porch, there has been no looking back. Convincing others to experience what I had seen and done on my travels made it easy to see that this is what it takes to make a good travel agent.
My first travel agent position was as a cruise travel consultant with, what was at that time the largest cruise agency in the country, "Cruises Only" in Orlando, FL. Funny, since I had never even been on a single cruise in my life, but I knew I could learn the product quickly. I absorbed the industry like a sponge, and became an expert in the
product and destinations. I even spent a brief period working on a cruise ship as a photographer. I returned from that experience even more ambitious to make people happy by helping them take their dream vacations. Currently , I am a CLIA Accredited Cruise Counselor
While on vaction in Jamaica in 1994 I met my lovely future wife to be, Susan, who had what it took to get me to move from Florida to the Washington, DC area, where I have worked for several large and reputable cruise agencies. Now I am happily working with Tradewinds Travel, where I am not only working with dedicated professionals, but also very close friends. I can't think of a better situation than that. Let me sell you your next dream vacation. I can be reached by email at Islandmike1@verizon.net
Meet Nancy Albright!
In the 30 years that I have been a travel consultant, I have had many wonderful experiences, including climbing the Great Wall of China, venturing out on a African safari in Kenya and Tanzania, and river boating throughout Europe. I have met many wonderful people while escorting them to Hawaii, Alaska and Europe. Most of my years were spent at AAA in both Pennsylvania and Maryland. After retiring from AAA, I realized that the travel bug was still in me, so I starting working with Libby at Tradewinds Travel.
My areas of expertise include cruises, Hawaii, Alaska and Europe, as well as certification as a Sandals/ Beaches specialist, Disney College of Knowledge graduate, Princess Cruise Commodore, and a Grand River Cruise Specialist with Uniworld.
