Background

Summary

Evelyn Spencer-CEO/Travel Consultant
Raised and born in New York and came in contact with people who liked to travel a lot. Growing up as both my parents had their own businesses. My Mother, being a Milliner, her clients consisted of high power people such as the owner of the 21 Club in New York, her father my Grandfather was in show business and was Al Jolson's band leader which allowed him to travel most of the year. My Dad, a jeweler and some of his clients show people such as Perry Como. They all talked about their travels and I got the bug early on.

Over the yrs I bare boated 95% of the Caribbean myself. I know it like the back of my hand. I was featured as the business person to watch.
For several years I taught Travel at The Travel School in Wilmington De.

In 2000 I became a Tahiti Tiare Specialist (Maeva!) of which there are only a few of us on the east coast. One destination I truly enjoy traveling to.

I was involved Caribbean Tourism and was on the executive board for the PHL area.

I have been involved with the Pacific Asia Tourism Board & served on their Executive Board for 6 years, allowing me knowledge of the Pacific Asia area.
I was privileged to be invited by the government of Thailand to check into the after math of the affect by the Tsunami. Two other highlights of my travels over the years included being invited to Buckingham Palace for tea with Queen, and second I was able to attend the opening of Princess Diana's Spencer's family home/grave at Althorp a year after her passing which was very moving for us since my husband is in the same family Spencer line.
