As someone who loves history and culture, it was an easy choice, but not an easy road, to begin a career in travel. While in the US Army, I saw a lot of our country, but once I came back home is when my passion for international travel really began! I was a career firefighter who had a LOT of time off, so I began traveling to all of those places I had only read about or had seen on TV. As luck would have it, I was injured on the job and had to medically retire. I was devastated and had no idea of what I would do next. After a lot of soul searching, I decided to take a leap of faith and open my very own travel agency, hence the birth of Destinations By Donoway!
