Former Travel MBA student, Ashley McCoy of Kinship Vacations, is also excited to see Lisa officially joining the GTN team. “Lisa is one of the best (if not, the best) assets in the Gifted Travel Network Community! She was my mentor throughout the Travel MBA Program and gave me the right amount of guidance and attention. She is very good at understanding what each of her individual students needs and providing them that. She has so much experience in the travel industry there really isn’t a subject she doesn’t know about, yet she continues to develop her knowledge and skills so that she can share it with the GTN community. There is no better choice for the role of Director of Education and Training. She will do a phenomenal job!”

The GTN team is confident that Lisa will prove to be an incredibly valuable addition to the team. GTN co-owner, Vanessa McGovern said, “Our Travel MBA students frequently cite Lisa’s mentorship as one of the most valuable aspects of the Travel MBA program.
