I’m Julie Gheesling. I am a graduate of the University of Georgia. I have been married to my husband, Russell for 13 years and we have two kids, a 9 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. I enjoy cooking, travelling, planning parties, and watching TV. Due to my husband’s job, I have lived in Georgia, Wyoming, Ohio, Virginia, England, Rhode Island, and next we are off to New Mexico. In addition to being a vacation designer, I have worked as a Pre-K teacher, a high school special education transition assistant, Chick-fil-A marketing director, and an independent consultant for Rodan and Fields. I am an active member and volunteer at Fairhaven Church. I am a member of the Wright Patterson Spouses Club.

I started as a vacation designer in October of 2015. After traveling to several countries in Europe and having a life long love of Disney, I was excited to have the opportunity to plan trips for others. I love working with military families. I have a heart for people with special needs and since working with IBCCES and obtaining my Certified Autism Travel Professional certificate, I am looking forward to growing my clientele with Autism and other special needs. So, where do you want to go? Message me today and let’s work together to get you there!
