President, Trafalgar, Brendan Vacations, and CostSaver
Melissa has more than 25 years of experience in the travel industry in both the US and the UK. She spent the first 20 years of her career in retail travel agencies working across various aspects of the business (Sales, Operations and IT) and she understands first-hand the challenges and opportunities our agency partners face on a daily basis.

She is motivated by the impact travel has on people and is passionate about inspiring others to experience the Good Life through travel and the connectivity of those shared experiences. An avid traveler herself having been to more than 50 countries, Melissa currently resides in Southern California with her Brazilian husband and two daughters, with whom she has shared the travel bug.
