Deb Shiloas


I began working for a travel agency/tour operator as a tour guide for profoundly mentally challenged and handicapped children in 1983. I was fascinated by the travel business and they let me work with them, teaching myself the “art” of booking travel.  For many years I specialized in highly demanding corporate travel, focusing on “roadshows”. That type of travel is all about constant changes and co-ordination. I love it! I also did a stint as Head of Sales for two different local hotel chains.
