Disney, River Cruises, Ocean Cruises, Family Vacation Travel Advisor
Some may say it was pure luck, but if luck is defined as when preparation meets opportunity, then for Rachele Schroeter her career as a travel advisor is more likely a case of destiny.
An avid traveler, Schroeter and her family just happened to be seated on a cruise with a travel advisor and her family. Well, one thing led to another and today Rachele is an extremely successful Disney Specialist and Family Travel Advisor for Acendas Travel. Successful in various business ventures, she charted a new professional journey and has not looked back.
“I love the adventure traveling provides, seeing new places, making new memories and enjoying food from the various destinations,” Schroeter says.
A self-proclaimed research and geography “nerd,” Schroeter planned her own trips for several years, then started providing travel advice to friends when they asked. So, the evolution to travel advisor in 2013 is not particularly surprising.
While having counseled travelers of all types and to all destinations, Rachele’s specialty is family travel. That was honed as her family traveled at an early age, often in tow with children less than a year old. She says traveling with young children is not that difficult with proper planning and focus. With that family focus, it is easy to see why Schroeter is a big Disney fan.
“I grew up in central Florida and we went to Disney World all of the time,” Schroeter says. “She still looks forward to an annual pilgrimage there and enjoys mapping out trips for families excited to visit regardless of whether it is their first or 10th trip.
In addition to Disney, Schroeter is an enthusiastic fan of the beach having traveled to Hawaii, Costa Rica, St. Petersburg, the Gulf Coast, the Bahamas and countless other Caribbean islands to experience sun and fun. She is also enamored by Alaska.
