Meet April Powers
Founder, Custom Travel Specialist
I was born and raised in Minnesota, where I spent the endless winters dreaming about palm trees and the ocean. As a young adult, my dreams came true when I had my first experience seeing, smelling, and hearing the ocean waves in the Hawaiian Islands. It was incredible and awe-inspiring (I had to pinch myself a few times). I spent the next twenty years traveling and made my way back to Hawaii for a few more visits. My first visit to the Hawaiian Islands changed my life, and I was determined to see and do more.
I’ll be the first to say that traveling isn’t always smooth sailing. Maybe you’ve encountered these less than pleasant situations such as lost luggage, canceled flights, missing reservations, hotels that didn’t look anything like their websites, a hurricane, volcanic eruptions, or medical emergencies. There is no need to worry because I have your back! While you enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon at the museum, I’ll be locating your missing luggage, securing new flights, changing hotel accommodations, rescheduling arrangements to avoid natural disasters, or handling any other unforeseen situations.
I know exactly what is needed to create a fabulous vacation and how to handle those bumps in the road, which is a big reason I decided to become a travel agent. In 2007, I entered the travel industry after a big move with my family. My husband, daughter, our three dogs, and I relocated from Minnesota to North Carolina for my husband’s job. This allowed me to change careers and share my first-hand travel expertise with others. I began working at a well-known travel agency where I received detailed training in the art of planning tailored vacations for couples and families. The education I received is pure gold. In 2013, the travel agency was sold, and that is when I opened April Powers Travel and turned my focus towards romance inspired travel, and I’ve never looked back.
