An Interview With Joan Alexander

How many years have you been selling travel?

I have been in the Travel Industry for 34 years.  I first started out working with the Canadian Forces in Europe from 1972-1975, booking their leisure travel and military travel.  Upon my return to Canada, I had a break of about 3 years when I went back to work for the Department of National Defense at CFB Petawawa.  But I really had a love of working in travel so I applied to work for Pem-Air, the local airline.  While working at Pem-Air I was approached by the owner of Laurentian Travel and offered a position at his agency, which I accepted.  I worked there for 5 years before moving to North Bay and accepting a job at Mayne Travel, where I worked for 9 1/2 years before moving over to Marlin Travel, where I have been for the last 15 years.  I have travelled extensively through Europe, including Turkey, Eygpt and have cruised the Mediterranean.  I have been to England, Ireland and Scotland as well.  My travels have also taken me to Australia, Hawaii, Barbados, St Lucia, St Maarten, St Thomas, Nassau, Antigua, Bermuda, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Cozumel, Cancun, Acapulco, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City, Taxco and Brazil. I have also cruised with Princess Cruise Lines and Carnival.  I have done some travel within Canada and to the United States, but am looking forward to doing more.  As I always say, too many countries, too little time.  Please feel free to contact me for any and all of your travel requirements.
