Meet Your Austin Area Chapter Director, Deidre Carter-Briscoe!
Over the past 18 years, I have been enjoying traveling with my husband and our four children. I have a love for travel and my personal travel experiences have taken me to so many places, including the Caribbean, China, South Africa, Bali, Japan, Singapore and Europe. I never imagined how inexpensive travel could be. Since I was already creating travel plans for friends and family, I decided why not take my joy and passion and work with others. And just maybe, make a living out of it.
I began working in the travel industry under a company using travel as their multi-level marketing product. I soon realized I was more concerned about creating lasting memories, and not just the recruiting side of the business. With that, I branched out and became a home-based, independent travel agency in 2000. Because of my love for travel, my initial niche was the cruise industry and my initial clients were non-seasoned travelers; where I once started. Over the years I have organized groups for senior citizens, gospel cruises, destination weddings, family reunions, class reunions and so much more. I strive to gain friends, not just clients. This has become an important place in my "portfolio" and I have expanded from the non-seasoned traveler to travelers of all levels.
I am so excited to now be part of CCRA/TRUE and look forward to working with other agents and learning more about the industry and interesting places to travel.
