We’re thrilled to welcome the latest group to the Brownell Mentoring Program: Mentoring Class 21. These five women are from different states and have had different careers, but they all share the same love of travel, passion for success, and entrepreneurial spirit. Get to know each of them a little more below:
Bloomfield Hills, MI
When Andrea tells you she’s been on a road trip, she’s not talking any ordinary trip – she drove over 10,000 miles from London to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia for the 2014 Mongol Rally. This is just one of the many travel experiences that led Andrea to her career as a luxury travel advisor. A former marketing professional and management consultant, Andrea can pair her business savvy with her firsthand travels to help others see the world.
Palm Beach, FL
Mary is all about finding solutions. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a CPA, she can help you improve your life and do your taxes – but her true passion is in travel. She uses her well-honed listening skills, eye for detail, and love of research to understand what her clients need and then delight them with a custom travel experience.
Raised in Bogota, Colombia, Michele grew up exploring South America. She continued to travel the world in college, studying abroad in Florence and London and spending summers in France. It is only natural that her career path is in travel: first planning incentive travel programs for large companies and now as a luxury travel advisor.
There’s an energy you feel when you visit a new destination, and Mimi is hooked on it. Her lifelong passions have been learning, exploring, and connecting with people from different cultures. From working at a large corporate travel agency to moving her family to Madrid for a year, Mimi has always made travel a large part of her life and will now assist others in doing the same.
Wall Township, NJ
