Outside Sales Consultant
My love for travel started when I was 15 years old, when I travelled alone to Singapore to go visit a friend! After high school I went backpacking in Australia with friends, and thats when it really hit me that I needed a career in Travel. I graduated with a certificate in Travel and Tourism from SAIT in 2006 and immediately started working for Vulcan Vacations. My true love is the beach and I have been to over 40 different all-inclusive resorts across Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as Disneyland and DisneyWorld with my family! Destination Weddings and large Friend & Family groups are my specialty!

Leanne Anderson
Destination Wedding/Honeymoon Specialist
I began working for Vulcan Vacations in the summer of 2011 after spending 9 years as a learning assistant for our local school division. I have always loved traveling and exploring new places, especially those that included the ocean and I thought that I would really enjoy helping others plan and make special memories with their loved ones, so making the decision to join Vulcan Vacations was an easy one! I have been very fortunate to have travelled to many places over my life starting when I was only 8. Disneyland was my first trip, and Disney Parks are still some of my favorite places to spend time with family. Some of the other destinations that I have been lucky enough to see include Belize, Honduras, St. Maarten, Cozumel, St. Thomas, Grand Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Great Exuma, 4 of the Hawaiian Islands and various parts of Mexico. Since starting with Vulcan Vacations, I have planned many trips for couples, families and also a large group for a destination wedding. If I can be of any help to you with planning that special vacation, wedding, reunion or you just need to get somewhere, please contact me and I would love to help you out!

I graduated from the Career College with a diploma in Travel and Tourism in 1992. I worked briefly in the office for Vulcan Travel and then due to relocation, I became an outside sales representative in the fall of that same year.

Outside Sales Consultant
I have been involved in travel for a few years. I worked at WestJet in the reservations for 4 years. When I left, I began taking all the courses I needed to become an Esthetician. I have been working at that for 2 years and decided to work out of my home as well as sell Travel. With my experience at WestJet I have gained the knowledge for selling and booking great travel experiences. I love to travel and I look forward to helping others plan their dream vacations.

Outside Sales Consultant
My career in travel evolved from a personal love of exploring. After planning all of my own vacations for my family as well as for family members and friends, I knew that this was the career route for me. Now is the best time to take advantage of the day and experience something new. This is why I work as a travel professional. I love to help people realize their dreams, and take chances on the vacations that they never thought were possible.

I absolutely love the Caribbean, that enticing turquoise water and beautiful white powder sandy beaches. I have enjoyed immensely my vacations several times to Cancun, Mayan Riviera, Jamaica and Dominican Republic. While in the Dominican I adopted a wonderful family. I enjoyed my trip to Hawaii and definitely will revisit again. Vegas anyone …. I am addicted to Las Vegas, love it! I have been working with Vulcan Vacations since spring of 2011. I am continually taking on-line courses and webinars to further my education. I attend as many supplier presentations as possible to keep current. I am so thrilled in December to participate in the FAM Trip going to Turks and Caicos, Great Exuma and Nassau, Bahamas. I am excited with my career and look forward to making my clients travel memorable. Whether you are a couple looking to go on a romantic holiday, a group of any size or planning a destination wedding, I would love the opportunity to take care of all your travel needs.

I have always loved traveling and experiencing new places, climates and cultures! From Nuevo Vallarta to Vegas to Cuba, and onto North Carolina to Seattle, Mayan Riviera and my absolute favourite, Hawaii! I also lived in the Okanagan for 2 years and would call myself a darn good amateur wineries tour guide.  I have been a stay at home mom for the past 5 years after the birth of my twins and I am so excited to get back into the working world! My love for travel and meeting new people makes Vulcan Vacations a dream to start working with! I am so excited to take more courses on all the fabulous resorts and destinations that the world has to offer and bring those trips and deals to you! I look forward to
making your dream trip a reality!
