Courtney Donovan Founder/CEO
Courtney began her career in the travel industry in September of 2006 working for a well known wholesale supplier. Beginning as a customer service agent, she worked to perfect her service skills and quickly worked her way up the ranks. This position gave Courtney the perfect opportunity to start building relationships with suppliers all over the world, that still flourish to this day. From a customer service representative to team lead, to an operations agent and up to a product coordinator and manager - She learned all she could about the wholesale side of the travel industry.
Wanting more, she quickly learned that the travel agent life was exactly what she craved! Moving on to work for other travel agencies, as well as different wholesalers, gave her the expertise that not many have. Her passion for travel continued to grow as she used her connections and knowledge to build her world travel experience!
Today, as the founder of Vaggabond Vacations, Courtney hopes to build a business that will become a household name on Long Island, by providing top notch service to the most beautiful destinations!
