Anne Rose, CEO and Senior Travel Designer
Anne, more than anything else, has always loved to travel. When she was a teenager, she begged her parents to let her study on a remote French island. When she got older, she was booking regular flights to Hawaii and Europe—even when she was between jobs! Travel experiences were always paramount in her life although she started her professional career as a nurse. Yet it is that service orientation--that need to take care of clients with personalized attention and attention to detail-- which is the underpinning of her travel agency’s philosophy and approach to travel planning. Anne Rose strongly believes that clients are entitled to their dream vacation—whether it’s unbridled luxury, adventure and excitement, or memory-building family holidays. There is no such thing as a one-size fits all package. It is only from learning about the clients’ needs, desires, priorities, and expectations that a perfect itinerary can be designed. She’s the heart and soul of the agency. She’s spent 30 years traveling the Hawaiian Islands, over a decade on gaining knowledge in Europe and Mexico, has cruised the oceans and the rivers of Europe, and has numerous destination certifications to her credit. She offers her expertise to clients so that they can experience the vacation of a lifetime. In addition to travel, Anne enjoys spending time with her beloved animal companions and advocating for the little guy.
Gretchen Schneider, COO and CTO
Gretchen was too young to remember her first experience on a plane. As far back as she can remember, her family always traveled: Hawaii, cruises, Mexico, Europe—she’s seen a lot—she even lived in Hawaii for 7 years. She knows firsthand the benefits of travel: bonding experiences with family, newfound friends around the globe, an appreciation for diverse cultures and lifestyles, and a recognition of the past’s intertwining with today. With an MBA under her belt, she uses her business sense and travel experience to further the company’s goals and meet the needs of the clients. This might actually qualify her as the brain of the operation! Of Italian heritage, she and her husband had their dream wedding in Ravello, Italy, on the Amalfi Coast. Ask her about it! She resides in California now with her husband and their dogs & special-needs cats.
Since everyone at the Celebrate-Travel headquarters loves animals and regularly brings a pet companion to the office, don’t be surprised if you hear a meow or woof in the background: it’s usually a dog or a cat voicing approval to another stupendous vacation design!
