When I am not designing magical vacations for my clients, I can be found working at my family’s business, Ronnie Thompson Ford, where I am the office manager. I love working in a family business that gives me the flexibility to be there for my travel clients at times that are most convenient for them when designing their perfect trip. In my spare time away from work, I enjoy travelling, exploring new places, shopping, trying new restaurants, spending time with my family and spoiling my beautiful nieces! I married my own Prince Charming on New Years’ Eve 2015 and have one teenaged step-son. I am a Leadership Gilmer Alumni, former CASA for the Appalachian Judicial Circuit and active in the Gilmer County Chamber of Commerce. I graduated from both Young Harris College and Reinhardt University with a B.B. in Accounting.
I began my adventure with Joyful Journeys in early 2018. I had been planning my family vacations since I was a little girl, researching each place we visited at the local library and dragging my family along with my guidebook in hand. After much thought and prayer, I decided to join the Joyful Journeys team to begin designing magical vacations for new and old friends. My passion for travelling and trying new things, along with my wish to help others played a huge role in my decision to become a vacation designer with a renowned, much respected agency. I love all things Disney and enjoy keeping up and researching all the happenings at the happiest place on earth, Walt Disney World! It is my goal to take all of the stress out of planning your family’s perfect dream vacation. I can do as little or as much as you would like while using my knowledge and organization to bring your wish to life! Disney dreams do come true, so call me today and let’s design your getaway!
