My name is Marilyn Coats and I am thankful to be a vacation designer with Joyful Journeys.  I have a passion for travel and thoroughly enjoy getting to experience new places with my family.  I also enjoy helping my clients design vacations that will be remembered for a lifetime.  I have been married to my husband, Johnnie, for 12 years and we have 3 wonderful children.  I have a both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in education but have been a stay at home mother now for 10 years.  In my spare time, I enjoy watching my children play sports and playing the piano.

I have been a vacation designer with Joyful Journeys for 2.5 years and have loved every minute of it.  I love to travel and take my family new places, but it seems like we always end up back at Walt Disney World!  My parents took me so many times I can’t count, and now I’m trying to experience the same with my children.

Please call me today and together we can start designing a vacation perfect for you!!!
