An Interview With Sylvie Trahan

How many years have you been selling travel?

I graduated from Cambrian College in May of 1991 from the Travel Counselor course.  I worked for 3 years at Goligers Travel, where I was able to travel on a cruise from New York to Bermuda.  After 3 years I changed agencies to work at AirSea Travel.  AirSea Travel had a different mix of clients and this gave me the opportunity to work in corporate travel, such as the Federal Government travel arrangements.  I was with AirSea for 2 years.  In December 1995, the owner of Marlin Travel in my home town of North Bay offered me a position and I have been there ever since. My position at Marlin Travel went from part time vacation agent to full time corporate/vacation sales agent.  Over the years I have had the pleasure of travelling to Las Vegas, Cuba, Barbados, St Lucia, Jamaica, Nassau and Puerto Plata.  

What are your hobbies?

What type of resort activities do you favor? ie water sports, lounging by the pool, etc?
