Siera Duiser, 30
Destinations to Explore
After getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Brain, Behavior, and Cognitive Sciences from the University of Michigan, Siera Duiser was applying for Masters programs when she realized that her heart was in travel. After all, she’d already explored most of the U.S. and had been to 13 countries already. She got a part-time gig as a travel agent, selling Disney destinations but eight years in, has branched out to include cruises, all-inclusives and complex honeymoons to Europe.
Duiser made the right choice; she was an inaugural member of her agency’s Medallion Club, a recognition for top sellers with sales of $500,000 or more and she’s retained that status every year since. Media outlets, such as Brides, Huffington Post and Fox News, reach out to her as a travel expert, and then there is the praise her clients post on her Travel Leaders Network profile. One honeymoon client went on about how Duiser handled her trip to Maui, saying, “I know some Siera Duiser magic was present when we saw how centrally and perfectly located our room was at the resort. She even helped book a luau for us!”
Duiser reports that some of her younger clients are traveling again during COVID-19 (mostly visiting Orlando’s theme parks), but that she’s staying in touch with all her customers and is ready to assist when they are comfortable venturing out again.
“I have been consistently impressed with Siera’s drive and determination to provide the best experiences for her guests,” says Barb Hartling, sales manager for Destinations to Explore. “Along with her attention to details and timely customer service, Siera is bold and has creative marketing plans to expand and promote her business.”
