I worked as a reading specialist in the elementary schools until 2010, as well as a learning disability teacher for twenty years before that. I also supervised student teachers for a university. I love to travel. I bought several Marriott time shares over the years and due to the economy was not using them all (I do reserve my right to Aruba twice a year!!). By offering them for rent I was able to pay my maintenance fees and keep them for better times.
By owning so many and renting them year after year I have come to know many other owners who do the same and we often help each other. Suddenly this turned into a niche and a full blown business! So if I don't have a date you need, I usually can find one for you. In addition, I have quite a bit of experience booking group trips as I can get multiple units for the same dates and save you money and tons of time.
What started out as a little extra has turned into a very busy full-time family business. My daughter-in-law Nicole quit corporate America after 20 years in advertising and joined me full-time in October, 2014. My daughter Jennifer joined with me part-time, but is now working full-time as an art teacher again, so joins us during her vacations.
Life is good and helping people plan their vacation for a wonderful destination like Aruba is just plain great!!!
My parents have taken my husband and I and now our young son with them to Aruba a lot over the years and we love it! I'm a high school art teacher who ebbs and flows with Aruba We Go based on my vacation schedule ;). I designed and built this web site, and am always trying to update it so it will be useful to those thinking about an Aruban vacation and those who've already booked, so let me know if you have any suggestions for the site or blog!
I started with Aruba We Go in the Fall of 2014. I had been working in the advertising world for over 20 years and decided that I wanted a change of pace. My mother-in-law had been running Aruba We Go on her own and had been very successful. She wanted to make it an all woman's family run business. So, I decided that this opportunity would allow me to spend more time with my family and also apply all of my marketing and project management experience to Aruba We Go. I am very excited to be able to work with families to plan their dream vacation!
