Suzanne Zabek, PEF Travel Consultant

Travel industry experience: 28 years

About me: I started my career as a Travel Consultant. After 5 years in the industry I was promoted to Office Manager and Director of Outside Sales. In 1993, I was charged with opening and managing a large agency in Saratoga. My career at PEF Travel began in 2010 and I have really enjoyed planning vacations for PEF members around the state. I have had the opportunity to attend PEF Conventions and worksite meetings to discuss the wonderful world of travel. I find my career to be rewarding and exciting. Whether I am booking a newlywed’s honeymoon, a family’s first trip to Disney or a retiree’s month long tour of Europe I approach each trip as if it was my own.

Marie O’Neil, PEF Travel Consultant

Travel industry experience: 34 years

About me: My travels have taken me all over the United States, Mexico, Canada, and on various cruises to the Caribbean and Alaska. I have traveled throughout Europe and love all the beautiful old cities, the countryside, food and the people. Before coming to PEF travel I was a Senior Group Coordinator and Travel Consultant responsible for planning, reserving and accompanying foreign and domestic groups from 20 to 200 people. I performed site inspections at various locations and arranged accommodations, tours, airline tickets, and hotels with tour operators. After all of my years in the business, I have seen a lot of changes in the travel industry but the one aspect I truly love is helping clients plan their best vacation ever and hearing the joy in their voices when they return home and tell me how much fun they had.

My favorite vacation destination:

Ireland. A magical country that captures your imagination and keeps calling you back. Ireland shares its magic of the people, food, music and 40 shades of green with its visitors!
